James McAvoy Has "No Idea" When Production On X-MEN: FIRST CLASS 2 Begins

The British actor reveals that he has no idea when production begins and comment on what he wants to see in the upcoming sequel as well as his chemistry with Michael "Magneto" Fassbender on the big screen.

Talking to Red Carpet News at yesterday's Jameson Empire Awards, James McAvoy has talked a little more about returning as Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class 2 and his chemistry (bromance?) with Michael Fassbender. However, despite recent rumours that production would begin on the sequel this Fall, the actor says he has "no idea" when he'll begin working on the highly anticipated follow up to the critically acclaimed 2011 hit.



On What He'd Like To See In The Upcoming Sequel:

"God knows. Hopefully more of that same in that we don't stick to the same sort of routine. You know? I think what was good about the first X-Men: First Class movie is that we messed with the dynamic that you usually get with X-Men movies. I think we need to keep doing that. We can't just fall into stride with the other stuff. So, maybe, hopefully more of that I think.


On His Chemistry With Co-Star Michael Fassbender:

"We had sex every morning and that helped make the chemistry. We just got on. We're friendly guys. We get each other and we agreed on a lot of stuff. We helped spar off each other every morning and come up with ideas. It's just fun to work with somebody who is as talented as him. Also, when you've got two generous actors as well, we're not trying to be selfish or steal scenes off each other. It was good."


On When He Starts Work On X-Men: First Class 2:

"No idea."
