James McAvoy is up for a sequel to X-Men: first Class

24 October 2011

Sought after British talent James McAvoy who played the young Professor X in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class sat down with Total Film and spoke about the his involvement with a potential sequel.

He said “I’d be up for it. But the truth is I’m contractually obliged to be up for it because they made us all sign multiple picture deals!”

When asked if he knew anything about the ideas for the sequel and where the story could go, he added “I’ve spoken to Matthew about ideas, but I can’t tell you what they are because they may or may not be the story.

One thing I liked about our one was that it was different from the other three films where the X-Men are the good guys, Wolverine’s figuring out who he is and Magneto is the bad guy.

This was a completely different thing. Magneto wasn’t a bad guy, we were friends. We’re now set up to go back to the way the other movies are, so we’ve got to try to be cleverer than that.”

McAvoy will next lend his voice to Arthur in the animated tale Arthur Christmas which comes to cinemas on November 11 and includes the vocal talents of Jim Broadbent and Bill Nighy.
