Singer Reveals Latest X-Men Candid
Charles Xavier goes '70s

09 May 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Bryan Singer

When he’s not napping in his trailer or, you know, directing the movie, Bryan Singer has been the source of a regular flow of pictures from behind the scenes of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Today’s brings a retro-tastic look at James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier. 

Serpico indeed! From the looks of this, Xavier will be hanging on to his locks for a while yet, and, given that the portion of the film featuring the First Class cast will be set in the 1970s, he’s gone for it, including a mane that would even impress Hugh Jackman’s Logan.

Days Of Future Past finds the X-team in real trouble in a dark alternate future where mutants are hunted down, put in internment camps or killed by the robotic sentinels. To stop this happening will require the efforts not only of the present-day team (including Jackman, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin and Daniel Cudmore), but also the younger versions of some of them in the '70s (with McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult all returning).

It’s all being shot in 3D right now in Canada ready for a July 17, 2014 release date.
