James McAvoy Says He’s Not Playing Professor X In The MCU


James McAvoy has been talking about whether he might ever get to play Professor X in the MCU or not, and it looks like he won’t – at least, that’s what he’s saying.

McAvoy was talking about this during a recent interview with Collider.

The interview was actually about the upcoming Audible version of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.

That’s going to be the second volume of The Sandman audiobook, and I actually can’t wait to listen to that.

James McAvoy is the voice of Dream in that audiobook and is perfect in a role.

Another role he was perfect in was as Charles Xavier and many Marvel fans were hoping to see him play the character in the MCU.

Well, it sounds like we might not get that wish, unfortunately.

Here’s what McAvoy had to say on the matter:

I feel like, yeah. I feel like I got to explore, not everything I wanted to explore, because there’s always more, surely, but I got to explore a ton of Professor X, and I feel quite satisfied with what I got out of him as a performer. It’s not to say that you don’t ever want to, you never want to come back, and you never want to do it again, and all that kind of stuff. You never say never, as I believe James Bond once said. But I’m not chomping at the bit. I’m not going to be gutted and desperately sad if it never happens again.
