I’m interested in doing things that I think are good. When I was asked to play Charles Xavier for the first time, I saw potential in the story and I accepted. If they offer me a good script I will always accept. I am convinced that I have completed a complete journey with Xavier and I have had the opportunity to explore the character well, especially in the first two films. I am happy with what I have done but if there is a good motivation to return to the role, I am available.
McAvoy’s statement comes after the colleague Patrick Stewart, who plays Charles Xavier in the original trilogy, has given up playing the role again within the MCU. Contacted by Kevin Feige earlier this year, Stewart said he declined the offer because he felt that Logan he had brought a good conclusion to his version of the character.
With the fact that the X-Men are one of the most famous superhero groups in the Marvel, it is likely with not much short of their entry into the MCU, especially now that the 20th Century Fox was acquired by Disney.

The certainty is that fans can’t wait for the X-Men, as well as the Fantastic 4, to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
