Re: The Official James McAvoy/Professor Xavier Thread
The troubling thing with the casting as a whole is that Xavier is supposed to be a father figure to these kids... not an older brother. The guy is too young to be a middle aged man with teenage kids. Look at the scene in X-3. Eric/Charles were easily in their 40's... and Jean was a kid... 11-12 years old? How can you cast someone 19-20 for Jean? There is only so much makeup you can use to make McAvoy look 50. It's not believable. I won't care one bit if this turns into separate continuity, but they need to come out and say that.
