New photos have revealed James McAvoy’s bald head for X-Men: Apocalypse.
McAvoy’s young Charles Xavier has kept his long hair throughout X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, despite Hank McCoy assuring him that Cerebro would work better on a shaved head. Following Charles’ character arc in Days of Future Past, where he finally accepts and grows into his role as Professor X, his new look will likely serve as an outward sign of his newfound maturity.
Note that the other actors in the photo are not involved with X-Men: Apocalypse. They were part of an interactive, zombie-themed theater experience - The Generation of Z - that McAvoy attended.
X-Men: Apocalypse is currently filming in Montreal. The movie opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
