I really liked the way Stewart acted in the final scene. It was a very serious moment when Logan was walking around the mansion and seeing everyone alive, and then bam we have Scott being Scott and then Professor X acting totally different than how grim he was in the prior timeline. I thought it was very good humor and added to the hopefulness and the warmth of the future.

Interesting. It's possible; I saw an interview with Patrick and he said that he loved James' performance so much that if he had the chance to play the character all over again, he would like to give Charles some McAvoy touches.

i'll watch the film again tonight and pay attention to this scene.

It's definitely a very different Xavier at the end. Huge kudos to Patrick Stewart for such a subtle change that makes a huge difference

A little bit? I thought McAvoy's performance was a spitting image of what a young version of Stewart's Professor X would be like, every since the start of First Class. I totally bought it was the exact same character but just younger. It was both scary and amazing. I didn't get that exact same feeling with DOFP's Xaviers, but that makes sense since McAvoy's Xavier is at a point in his life when he's fallen from where we usually see Professor X at.

However, I do agree with you that final scene perfectly solidified the similarities between both versions of the character.

Definitely. In fact, and I don't even know on how to explain this myself...it felt like the first time where I could truly buy that James's Charles would become this man.

Given on how the prequels were made later and how continuity isn't the franchises's strongest point, I had the hardest time in fully buying that James's Charles would grow into Patrick's one for some reason...but when I saw the final scene with Patrick, it really felt like it was James's Charles that Wolverine was reuniting with...the one that he had just experienced all of those things with back in the 70's.

On another note, I was glad to see Patrick's version of prof x actually make a reference to his character's past with raven. It actually felt like the circle was now complete on that end. And it kind of gives a new perspective on the original trilogy since one could now imagine that the old prof x had given up on raven by the time the events of the first film takes place, whch makes it more tragic when you see the toll of her leaving him took on his mind in dofp

In contrast to what some other people have said, I think Prof X in the future wasn't at all useless. He was the one who made a final push to the younger Prof X to go on and use his power to find Mystique and stop her.

Plus, the Magneto and Prof X holding hands together when the Sentinels was just...

It might just be me, but I felt like it was a wasted opportunity to allow patrick to have action scenes and buy action I mean . . . Legs. I get the whole other body being in a coma for a long time, the reason why his new body couldn't walk, but the future is so advanced wouldn't they have mechanical legs for him? Like in W:and the x-men. The poor guy is always in a wheel chair, he could have a cool action scene give him mechanical legs and a gun and he is set.

When the first pictures were released, I was puzzled why they had Professor X in the chair. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to have him walking (after the X3 explanation of how he was alive). But the hoverchair was so freaking cool that I don't really mind.

The Stewart/McAvoy scene...simple though it was, may be the most beautiful scene I've ever seen in a superhero film. Just...perfect.
