Professor X is 'Finally' Losing His Hair in 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' James McAvoy Says

X-Men fans wondering when they'll see a younger, bald Charles Xavier in Fox's rejuvenated franchise may soon have their answer.

Star James McAvoy admits that although he doesn't know much about 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse, he thinks Professor X's mop of hair from this year's Days of Future Past may be beating a retreat.

"I'll be older in this one," the actor tells Huffington Post Live. "[And] I think I'm losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that's kind of all I know."

That first part isn't a surprise, as it's been known for months that Apocalypse will be set in the 1980s, which will allow Bryan Singer & Co. an opportunity to introduce Gambit and Nightcrawler, and possibly younger versions of some of the X-Men introduced in the 2000 film.

However, many fans will undoubtedly be pleased the franchise appears to be inching closer to Xavier's more iconic appearance. The next question, presumably, is whether he loses his hair in dramatic fashion, or if he slowly succumbs to male pattern baldness.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 27, 2016.
