Stewart was chatting with MTV's Josh Horowitz about "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and how excited he was that Magneto would have a part in the time-traveling blockbuster when he used a phrase that has the spoiler police on high alert. When Horowitz asked if he would return for "X-Men: Apocalypse," Stewart replied, "I don't see why not. "That is one of the blessings about fantasy and science fiction: you're never really dead," he said with a laugh. "So I would love to come back and do some more. And there might be something else. A little bird has whispered that there might be something else... 'X-Men' related."

Of course, word isn't bond when it comes to interviews, and we could all be rightfully accused of over-scrutinizing every little tidbit we hear, but maybe this means Magneto is going to meet his maker in "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Or maybe not! We don't know. Comic books are full of magic.

In any case, there's not going to be your typical press blitz for this upcoming "X-Men" given the significant legal troubles facing director Bryan Singer and other Hollywood insiders. Singer is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenager, as are several other Hollywood execs. You can read more about the charges here, but the graphic descriptions can be triggering for some readers. Producer-screenwriter Simon Kinberg took over WonderCon press duties last weekend in place of Singer, after the lawsuit was filed last week. Possible plot leaks are certainly the least of everyone's concerns at this time.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens May 23.
