According to Flickering Myth on Dec. 13, James McAvoy discussed his ability to reinvent Professor Charles Xavier in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and had even emphasized his eagerness to participate in "X-Men: Apocalypse". News about Bryan Singer coming back to direct the future sequel had spread quickly.
McAvoy had mentioned how he found it fascinating to take on the Xavier role with a fresh perspective, especially considering what appears in the trailer a more abysmal Charles. One could tell by the expression on his face and shouting out "I don't want your future!" seems to display some kind of resistance the older Professor that fans were familiar with in previous "X-Men" films.
The Scottish actor had expressed his discovery of the announcement in regards to "X-Men: Apocalypse" and surmised that this role reprisal is something he is looking forward to.
"I only heard about [it] this morning. "I'd contracted [to return] and yes, I would [like to]".
McAvoy later went on to discuss his role reprisal and the ability to take on almost a whole new character of the Xavier character.
"The personal pleasure for me in First Class was in presenting a Charles Xavier to the fans who is very different to the Charles that you expected but he was still like 'everything is going good'. In the second movie, I get to present another version of Charles Xavier who is still very different to the Charles that used to exist but he's also remarkably different from the Charles in First Class as well. What's great is that, even though it's a sequel, even though it's a franchise, I keep getting to reinvent Charles Xavier and that's amazing".
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is scheduled to be released on May 23, 2014 and "X-Men: Apocalypse" already has a date slated for 2016.
