While I’d be a liar to say I didn’t love James McAvoy as Charles (Profossor X) Xavier in the last two X-Men movies, it wouldn’t be entirely true to say I would like his to be a bit less hairy. You know, like Patrick Stewart.
But, speaking with The Huffington Post, the actor confessed that that will all change in X-Men: Apocalypse: “I’ll be older in this one [and] I think I’m losing my hair finally.”
So there it is, Professor X will look a bit closer to the man we know from the comics this time out. That’s pretty cool.
Bryan Singer returns to direct the film from a script by Simon Kinberg, Mike Dougherty, and Dan Harris. X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
