James McAvoy May Reprise Role As Professor Xavier For ‘New Mutants’

The future of the X-Men cinematic universe is a little fuzzy for fans right now, but one project that has been talked about on multiple occasions is the New Mutants film. Anya Taylor-Joy has expressed interest in portraying the mutant Magik in the movie, and recently in an interview with SuperheroHype the actress had some interesting news to share on the project:

“I mean, I think James is already a part of it, isn’t he?”

Though this does not confirm anything, Taylor-Joy seems to believe that James McAvoy has already been recruited to once again play Charles Xavier. Despite this statement, we need to wait for a more concrete confirmation.

What do you guys think? Are you hoping this is true? What role do you think Professor X will play, if he is indeed in the film? Let us know in the comment as well as on our Twitter and Instagram!
