James McAvoy Gets The Full Professor X Look for 'X-Men: Apocalypse'
While the reboot of the X-Men films starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have been great fun, there’s definitely something about McAvoy’s version of Professor X that’s been off. Mostly that he has a bunch of hair flopping around every time he does that “touch your forehead so people know you’re using psychic powers” move.
Well, that’s coming to an end in X-Men: Apocalypse. Sketch-monster Bryan Singer put this picture on his instagram:
I think McAvoy will carry the cueball look well, he’s got strong features, and from that image his head looks nicely shaped. As Cinema Blend points out, in the comics Xavier loses his hair in high school because of his powers. Given that this version of Xavier is already into his 30s and has been manifesting powers for his whole life, I guess there will be a new explanation as to why he suddenly becomes more aerodynamic.
