James McAvoy Doesn't Think The Two Xavier's Will Come Face To Face In X-MEN: DOFP
X-Men: Days of Future Past star James McAvoy reveals that we shouldn't actually expect to see him come face to face with Sir Patrick Stewart's older Charles Xavier in the Bryan Singer helmed sequel and also reflects on the opportunities the mutant franchise has allowed him.
Talking to Empire Magazine, James McAvoy was asked for his thoughts on the seemingly never ending speculation that X-Men: Days of Future Past will see the younger Charles Xavier come face to face with his older self (played by Sir Patrick Stewart). "It'll be cool, but I don't think we get any scenes together, sadly. I don't think there's any future self talking to past self." Many of you may be wondering why the British actor has been keeping such a low profile after the success of X-Men: First Class. Well, he hasn't. Instead, he's grateful to the superhero franchise for allowing him to take on roles in the likes of Trance and Welcome to the Punch. "Having an X-Men in your back pocket, which hopefully will go for three movies, it makes you go, 'Right, it doesn't matter if I make 14 films that nobody sees...because in two years' time I'll make another X-Men'. Meanwhile, Fox are thinking, 'Why isn't this fucker out there building his profile so he can make us more money on the second X-Men?' But that's their fault for hiring me!"
