James McAvoy discusses ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’ Professor X, different and ‘unrecognizable’

James McAvoy returns as Professor Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past and confirmed he is signed on for one more film before discussing the character, how he’s changed as the actor talked with Red Carpet News TV.

“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.”

The changes for Xavier appeared to have just begun.

“So the Charles in this film is unrecognizable from the Charles in the last film as well as unrecognizable 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.”

The film stars Michael Fassbender, McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.
