First look at James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days Of Future Past

May 9th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Director Bryan Singer has given us first looks at Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Halle Berry’s Storm, Shawn Ashmore’s Iceman, Ellen Page’s Kitty Pryde and Nicholas Hoult’s Beast since X-Men: Days Of Future Past began filming.

Now, he has tweeted a first look at James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier from the set of the highly anticipated film, with the hashtag Serpico, which if you don’t already know, is a reference to the 1973 Al Pacino film.

Singer has managed to gather an impressive cast which also includes Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to be released in theaters on July 18, 2014.

What do you think of the Professor’s groovy new look?
