First Look at James McAvoy as Professor X in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     May 9, 2013


Director Bryan Singer has shared yet another image from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and this time we get our first look at one of the returning castmembers from X-Men: First Class.  It appears that James McAvoy’s young Professor X has gone through a rather dramatic change in appearance, as Singer’s caption on the photo of “Serpico” pretty much sums up McAvoy’s shaggy, 1970s look.  McAvoy’s Professor X still has plenty of hair and is sporting a slightly darker look than he did in First Class, and we also get to see him in his new wheelchair.

Hit the jump to take a look at the image, and if you missed them check out Singer’s images of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine,  Halle Berry as StormPatrick Stewart as Professor X, and Shawn Ashmore as Iceman.  The film also stars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellanAnna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar SyDaniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Peter Dinklage.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.

    This picture makes him look like a tourist visting Colombia who was kidnapped by a cartel and is now a hostage held for ransom

    I laughed out loud at that awesomeness. I was worried about losing Vaughn as Director, but hot damn that picture makes me think Singer might still bring the fun.

      How about waiting for the movie and then deciding? It’s not like First Class, or any of the X-Men movies, was all that faithful to the books anyhow. But first Class was pretty good, and Days of Future Past is a great story. I’m looking forward to this.

      Also, McVoy looks nothing John Lennon there. Closer to George Harrison. Or maybe the guy from the Black Crowes

    I didn’t know Edgar Wright was playing Professor X.
