Logan put a bow not just on Wolverine's story but also on the X-Men's story in a lot of ways. But, despite his apparent retirement, Patrick Stewart is still leaving the door open for Professor X to pop back up in a few places.

During an interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden, Stewart hedged a bit on his previous comments that Logan was his final farewell to the character of Professor X. When asked if there was any chance we could see Xavier again, he teased there have been some rumblings about Deadpool — but he couldn't say anything else. Stewart also said he would be game for a cameo role in FX's Legion, which focuses on (at least in comic canon) Xavier's son. The parentage has been left open in the series up to this point.

Stewart's a fun-loving guy, so it's not a shock to hear he'd be open to a Deadpool 2 role. Legion might be a tougher sell, since the show's role in the X-Men canon is still pretty vague. But, how can you turn down Professor X himself, right?
