It is OFFICIAL! James McAvoy will being shedding the hair and going BALD for [X-Men: Apocalypse](tag:1194267). This was confirmed Via director Bryan Singer's post on Instagram McAvoy, of course plays the role of the founder and leader of the X-Men Charles Xavier Aka Professor X. We previously saw McAvoy portraying a much younger version of Professor X while donning long 70's style hair in X-Men First Class and Days of Future Past.. It is very apparent that this is the dawning of what we know Charles Xavier to be.
James McAvoy is a great fit for young Charles Xavier and I really hope he will be involved in many X-Men films still to come. Shaving his head to add even more to the dynamic of his character and take a big step to becoming the leader of the X-Men is a huge step. The team will definitely need his guidance against Apocalypse, arguably the most powerful mutant ever. Hopefully Bryan Singer provides us with a couple of more teasers for X-men: Age of Apocalypse in the near future as it definitely sparks up major interests.
X-Men: Age of Apocalypse is set to release May 27th, 2016
