James McAvoy talks X-Men: Days Of Future Past

And confirms he is contracted for X-Men: Apocalypse

James McAvoy has been discussing his reprisal of Professor Charles Xavier inX-Men: Days Of Future Past, and has also revealed that he will be returning for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Red Carpet News TV reports that McAvoy confirmed he is contracted to appear in one more X-film after this one, before going on to wax lyrical about the pleasure of playing the character.

"The personal pleasure for me in First Class was in presenting a Charles Xavier to the fans – but also a new audience – who’s very different from the Charles that you expected," says McAvoy.

"In the second movie, I get to present another version of Charles Xavier who’s still very different from the Charles that used to exist, but he’s also remarkably different from the Charles in First Class as well.

"So the Charles in this film is unrecognisable from the Charles in the last film as well as unrecognisable from the Charles played by Patrick Stewart, who I then get to face up to.

"It’s like we’re playing a game with the audience saying, ‘Look at the many faces of Charles-Patrick-Stewart-Xavier-McAvoy. It’s really good fun."

X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 22 May 2014.

      As long as this character hopping is handled realistically. The fun lies not in how different a character is from what you'd expect, but from the changes he went through to become that character.

      An Apocalypse addaptation without the whole adult team including Cyclops, Gambit, Rogue, Nightcrawler and Archangel would be a huge huge Fail. So Singer and Fox better have a big plan for Apocalypse with at least two movies, and X-Force as a build up too.

      PLEASE, no Wolverine in the next movie X-men movies without Wolverine or not as a central character are greater, for it allows to introduce other major antagonists, for Wolverine means nothing to them (not even Magneto, since he can easily neutralize him) And I want Cyclops back, for he is the REAL main character of X-men, and not just because he is the 1st member and leader of the X-men, he has many characteristics that made born a hero.
