James McAvoy will not be reprising his role as Professor x in The New Mutants.

That’s according to online journalist Borys Kit who claimed that other sources claiming he would be in the movie were wrong.

On New Mutants: other rumored castings, James McAvoy as Prof X, not true. He is not in movie, per sources,” Kit said.

No word on why McAvoy isn’t appearing but it could be that the next X-Men movie will be prepping at a similar time.

Specific details about The New Mutants haven’t been released yet, but we know that the movie will be focusing on a group of young mutants, including Russian teen Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy), Scots girl Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams), Native American Danielle Moonstar, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, and an alien named Warlock.

The New Mutants is set for release on 13 April 2018.

Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
