“I don’t want your suffering. I don’t want your future!”
X-Men: First Class introduced us to a very different Charles Xavier to the one we’re used to. Putting James McAvoy’s younger Charles in the same film as Patrick Stewart’s worldly-wise older version will make that contrast even more stark.
Charles the elder dominates the trailer, his imperious tones laying out the scale of the threat. It seems that McAvoy’s Prof – decked out in long, lank hair and ‘70s styling - isn’t necessarily going to be instantly accepting of his future self’s message.
The trailer closes on the elder addressing the younger face-to-face, imploring, “We need you to hope again.”
