COMIC REEL: “Apocalypse” Xavier Goes Bald; Behind The Scenes of “Age of Ultron”


The actor has been promising it for a while, but with the third film in the X-Men’s timewarping trilogy now filming, James McAvoy is going bald to bring his portrayal of Charles Xavier in line with the comics. Director Bryan Singer sent out an Instagram of the actor in the barber’s chair:

On the heels of the big preview of “Arrow’s” finale which will include some of the Central City cast, “The Flash” today released its own trailer for its own season finale “Rogue Air.” Featuring the return of Captain Cold and the Rogues, the episode is also expected to tease the upcoming team-up spinoff “Legends of the Future.”

Airs Tuesdays on The CW.

Meanwhile, over at Business Insider (Via), Vision actor Paul Bettany recalls how the part literally put his struggling career in turnaround almost immediately.

“I’d actually just had a meeting with a producer who had told me I was never going to work again and I stepped out into Hollywood and I sat on the sidewalk with my feet in the gutter and I thought ‘f— me,'” Bettany said. But luckily, moments later a call came from Joss Whedon offering the part of the Avengers resident android. “I said yes. And I sort of looked up to heaven and thought karma’s very quick these days … and flipped the building behind me the finger.”
