Professor Xavier Recast

May 27, 2010

James McAvoy has been cast in the role Patrick Stewart portrayed in the last four X-Men films, for X-Men: First Class.

Film takes “before Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

McAvoy previously starred in the comic book film Wanted. The film is set to be released on June 3, 2011 and is being directed by Matthew Vaughn.
