While people still wonder if Jesse Eisenberg is going to be bald as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, James McAvoy, who plays the young Professor X in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, thinks he will shave his scalp down for his next appearance as the character in X-Men: Apocalypse.

While he can't say much about the character's arc this time around, or what the storyline will contain, James McAvoy did tease the upcoming sequel, explaining that director Bryan Singer is allowing Charles Xavier to mature quite a bit.

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

It actually sounds like the actor doesn't know much more than we do. He hasn't seen the script yet, explaining:

"I got an email from the [producer/writer Simon Kinberg] who informed me he was getting dead excited about stuff, but he didn't want to divulge anything for a couple of weeks, so I really don't know. It does seem fairly global, if we're talking apocalypse. Maybe it's just the character's name, but I think the nature of the film is going to be fairly apocalyptic."

What do you think? Is it time for a young, bald Xavier? Or should he keep his hair just a little bit longer?
