This in from io8.com




It's official: James McAvoy has signed on to play Professor X in the new X-Men prequel, directed by Kick-Ass' Matthew Vaughn. Which means we'll be getting to know a much, much younger Charles Xavier.

THR announced that McAvoy would be taken on the role previously played by Patrick Stewart. After the announcement that Vaughn would be the director, and now this news, it seems like Fox is hell-bent on meeting its June 3, 2011 release date.

Here's the official synopsis released by the studio:

The epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men."

But the fact that this will be an origins story that doesn't mean we'll only be treated to these two familiar mutant faces. After interviewing the screenwriters, we feel pretty sure that many characters will be "reintroduced" in this film.
