James McAvoy is ready to remain Professor X

Image After the film "X-Men: Apocalypse" could not fully meet the financial expectations of the studio management 20th Century Fox , the fate of the X-Men franchise remained in limbo. The Hollywood major has started work on the sequel to Deadpool and the spin-off X-Men: The New Mutants, but has yet to announce a seventh film in the main series.

At some point, there were even rumors on the web that the franchise would be rebooted, since the contracts of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and other representatives of the main cast of the second trilogy about X-Men were designed for only three films.

It looks like Fox will be able to keep the cast of Charles Xavier . In an interview with Fandango James McAvoy stated that he is not averse to taking part in the filming of new films about the adventures of mutants. "If the studio has a strong script, I am ready to play Professor X again, - said the actor. "I love this role."


The return of McAvoy to the image of the creator of the school for gifted teenagers can take place already in the tape " X-Men: New Mutants ". Anya Taylor-Joy, who starred with the Scotsman in the psychological thriller "Split", gave hope for the appearance of James in Josh Boone's film to fans of movie comics. Rumor has it that recently the young actress got the role of Ulyana Nikolaevna Rasputina , nicknamed Magic , in “New Mutants ”. During the promo campaign for " Split ", the actress has not yet confirmed her participation in the film Boone , but gave a hint that McAvoy has already signed the new contract with the studio Fox .

It should be noted that the official representatives of the film company are in no hurry to confirm this information.


X-Men: The New Mutants is expected to kick off this May in Montreal.
