X-MEN Star James McAvoy Addresses Rumored Professor X Return In DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

X-Men franchise star James McAvoy has addressed rumours he'll return as Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, making it clear Charles Xavier isn't a role he particularly misses...

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will bring Sir Patrick Stewart back as Professor X, and fans continue to theorise about the other big cameos we'll see. It wouldn't really make sense for James McAvoy to make an appearance as his younger Charles Xavier, though the hope is that this movie does something to set the stage for the X-Men's MCU debut. 

During a recent Instagram Q&A, McAvoy was asked if he'll appear in the Doctor Strange sequel, and offered a blunt answer in response. 

"No," the Scottish actor said of a possible return before doubling down by saying, "No, I don't think so" when asked if he misses playing Professor X in the X-Men movies. After the response to Dark Phoenix, we're not surprised by that reaction, and it sounds like this is a role he's moved on from.

McAvoy was great as the character, but with Stewart considered the truly iconic version (or should that be Variant?) of Charles, it does make more sense for him to take centre stage here. There's always a possibility Marvel Studios would turn to his successor to play the MCU's take on the leader of the X-Men, but we still have no clue how Kevin Feige plans to add mutants to the mix. 

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released in theaters on May 6!
