It’s been heavily rumored that James McAvoy would be reprising his role as Charles Xavier in either Josh Boone’s New Mutants or in another X-Men project, and yesterday, McAvoy added fuel to the fire.
While 20th Century Fox has remained mum on the matter, it’s been widely rumored for a few months now that X-Men star James McAvoy would return as Charles Xavier in Josh Boone‘s New Mutants, and now, we may finally have some sort of confirmation.
Yesterday, McAvoy shared a photo of himself having dinner with X-Men producer Simon Kinberg with a caption that read: « Dinner last night with the man who’s in a multi-generational three-way relationship with two professors. Thanks for dinner @simondavidkinberg and @hutch.parker, I can’t wait for the summer. » It’s uncertain whether or not he’s actually referring to the upcoming New Mutants spin-off or if he’s talking about the rumored X-Men: Supernova, but it’s probably a pretty safe that McAvoy is definitely filming something set in the X-Men universe at some point this summer.
