James McAvoy Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Says Charles Xavier's Journey Will Be 'Dark'
McAvoy offers some new tidbits for his reprisal as Charles Xavier in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, teasing the characters journey and suggesting that we're in for a darker sequel to 2011's First Class.
Speaking with Shortlist, actor James McAvoy talks more about his return as Professor Charles Xavier in next year's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. He reveals that the character will be very different from when we last saw him in 2011's First Class, and that the Bryan Singer-directed "inbetweenquel" will see Xavier face a 'dark journey'. "I think it’s going to be quite a dark journey compared to the caddish, almost playboy character that we turned him into in the first movie. I think it will be going through a darker place to ultimately get a sorted Professor X that we’re used to seeing come the third movie. This movie might be a little bit more of a passing through the crucible for him." He also expresses his excitement for the film's ensemble cast, which mostly includes actors from First Class and the original X-Men trilogy. "It’s going to be a humongous cast. It’s going to be like the cast of the beach scenes in Saving Private Ryan but everyone’s a mutant and everyone you’ve seen in other movies before."
