James McAvoy Will Shave The Day (And His Hair) In Next 'X-Men' Movie
In a little less than two years, "X-Men: Apocalypse" will arrive, bringing us our next adventure featuring James McAvoy's Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender's Magneto. But even now, we already know about one of the film's most major casualties: Xavier's hair.
Speaking with the Huffington Post, McAvoy made the tragic revelation about "Apocalypse": "I think I'm losing my hair, finally."
Frankly, Xavier losing his hair certainly took long enough. In "X-Men: First Class," McAvoy's Xavier was out of his wheelchair for nearly the entire film, until suffering a crippling gunshot wound in the final climactic scene. Throughout this past year's "Days of Future Past," Xavier was able to walk around thanks to a power-suppressant; not only that, he grew his hair out to 1970s appropriate hippy length.
But based on the sound of things, "Apocalypse" will bring McAvoy's Xavier closer to the version that fans know from the comics, and from the Patrick Stewart version of the character. Beyond losing his hair and returning to the chair, there's not much that McAvoy can reveal about the 1980s-set "Apocalypse," but plenty that he can speculate on.
"It feels fairly global, if we're talking about Apocalypse," he teased. "Maybe it's just the character's name, but I think the nature of the movie is going to be fairly apocalyptic as well."
"X-Men: Apocalypse" hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
