Handsome actor, James McAvoy has announced that he will be losing his hair for the upcoming film, 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

James McAvoy has joked about going bald for 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.

The handsome actor has previously appeared in 'X-Men: First Class' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' with a full head of hair, despite the fact that the comic book version of his character Professor Charles Xavier is completely bald.

But now, James has revealed that he will be older in the upcoming superhero flick, 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and even hinted that he will finally shave his head for the role.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, James shared: "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."

The film - which is also set to star Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Hugh Jackman - isn't scheduled for release until May 19, 2016, so it isn't surprising to hear that James doesn't know much about the movie as of yet.

He told the site: "I got an email from the [producer and 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."

However, James did note that the film will have world-wide repercussions for the Marvel universe though, as he added: "It seems fairly global, if we're talking apocalypse."

Waking from a ten-year slumber, Apocalypse (Isaac) enlists Erik/Magneto (Fassbender) in his evil plans. Plenty of superficial excitement but a distinct lack of narrative ambition; with an extraordinary ensemble wasted in a franchise that's run dry of ideas.
