Professor X and Magneto are the best of friends and worst of enemies and now, decades of mutant annihilation forces the pair to partner against a common foe.

”I just love the character. There is so much history in the character before I have arrived in his shoes. There’s so much to play with, he’s very complex. I love the relationship he has with Professor X.”

Fans may notice some changes in the costume as well.

“I can see more out of this [helmet]. I just love the character,” he told Cover Media. “There’s so much history in the character and so much has happened before I arrived in his shoes so there’s so much to play with. He’s very complex, I love the relationship he has with Professor X.”
