Default James McAvoy is Professor Charles Xavier!

The founder of the X-Men finally has his own thread. Discuss his recruitment/training of the X-Men, his love story with Moira, and anything else Professor X will be up to in the movie.

What type of deranged Lunatic would take a bunch of kids, train them for battle and send them off to fight against a war-lord?

I liked that in FC, he didn't have a choice. They all volunteered and he had no other options. But in the comics I'm always like "He's just willing training these kids in the event there's a deadly mission...?"

I'm worried about what 80s star McAvoy is going to be pulling from since he has hair. Will he still look dignified in Miami Vice pastels?

James Spader maybe?

You gotta think like did he show the parents the danger room during recruiting visits?
I mean weren't cyclops and jean grey originally orphans?
Sounds like total exploitation to me. No adult in their right mind super powered or not is signing up for military training that guises itself as a school. only a sicko like Wolverine would buy into this

Cyclops was orphan.

Jean's family originally had no idea what school was.They later retconned it so they did know.

Retcons happened plenty in comics too.

I don't blame him. He's trying to stray as far away from the creep that the true professor Xavier is. Child recruiting and exploitin'

Mcavoy was totally prepared to go bald for first class.It's a creative decsion.I don't agree
with it.They are just inviting the why didn't Xavier lose his hair at same time as earlier films.Whenever origins took place he had lost his hair.The quotes from empire scream they decided to have him lose hair by using his powers to maxiuem with them being a bit coy.

Asking about his approach to the character, particularly in the light of Patrick Stewart's performances in the previous X-Men films, McAvoy revealed that Xavier was initially going to be bald, but the studio vetoed the idea.

This was from FC. Even then, McAvoy constantly said "hopefully by the next film.." He even said that a few months back regarding XMA.

"This week has been jam packed with news about one of this summer's biggest blockbusters, the Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class."

I chortled.

Anyways, didn't read the whole article but didn't McAvoy show up first day of filming with his head shaved, but they told him he won't be bald in this?
