James McAvoy wants to star in a ThunderCats movie

Exclusive: “Lion-O is a great character!”

James McAvoy popped into the Total Film offices this week to chat all things Filth (including this behind-the-scenes secrets stuffed 'Making Of'), and he took that as an opportunity to reveal that he’d love to be in a ThunderCats movie.

When we asked him which super-team he’d love the X-Men to join forces with, McAvoy plumped for the ThunderCats – before explaining just why a ThunderCats movie needs to be made. (And not just because this fan trailer is awesome.)

Not only that, but the 34-year-old Scotsman would love to play Lion-O, a role he likens to ‘80s body-swapping comedy Vice Versa because of the fact that Lion-O is essentially a 12-year-old in a grown-up’s body.

Check out McAvoy’s thoughts on a potential ThunderCats movie below...

Filth is in UK cinemas now.

      I would love to see a thundercats movie, but not with Mcavoy. It would probably be best with an unknown cast, like Hugh Jackman was in the original Xmen. and it would HAVE to be in the vein of the 80s cartoon and not the new reincarnation.

      I think McAvoy would add quality to the film.
