James McAvoy Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Says Charles Xavier's Journey Will Be 'Dark'

McAvoy offers some new tidbits for his reprisal as Charles Xavier in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, teasing the characters journey and suggesting that we're in for a darker sequel to 2011's First Class.



Speaking with Shortlist, actor James McAvoy talks more about his return as Professor Charles Xavier in next year's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. He reveals that the character will be very different from when we last saw him in 2011's First Class, and that the Bryan Singer-directed "inbetweenquel" will see Xavier face a 'dark journey'. "I think it’s going to be quite a dark journey compared to the caddish, almost playboy character that we turned him into in the first movie. I think it will be going through a darker place to ultimately get a sorted Professor X that we’re used to seeing come the third movie. This movie might be a little bit more of a passing through the crucible for him." He also expresses his excitement for the film's ensemble cast, which mostly includes actors from First Class and the original X-Men trilogy. "It’s going to be a humongous cast. It’s going to be like the cast of the beach scenes in Saving Private Ryan but everyone’s a mutant and everyone you’ve seen in other movies before."

X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult and Omar Sy. The film is set to hit theaters July 18th, 2014.
