More ‘X-Men: First Class’ Set Photos: James McAvoy As Charles Xavier

It was only a matter of time before more photos from the set of “X-Men: First Class” hit the ’net, and while we got a look at January Jones as Emma Frost last time around, now we get our first peek at James McAvoy as a young Charles Xavier.

Posted over on, the photos were taken around “First Class” shooting locations in Oxford (including some nighttime shots), and show off quite a bit of the 1960s-styled set and cast. Along with some retro-tastic modifications to the local signage, the photos also offer the first look at McAvoy as the man who will one day become Professor X, the mentor of the X-Men.

With shooting still underway, it’s likely that we’ll be seeing more shots from the set in the very near future, too.

Here’s one of the better shots of McAvoy as Charles Xavier, and you can check out the rest at (including some swingin’ 1960s outfits on various extras and other cast members):

“X-Men: First Class” is scheduled to hit theaters June 2011.
