Looks like James McAvoy is getting to shear off his locks for the new X-Men: Dark Phoenix film from FOX Studtios.

In an Instagram post, McAvoy is shown, reflected though the razor’s handle’s chrome, holding the razor, saying “he approaches”.

This could mean only one thing; McAvoy is preparing for the role that went before to Patrick Stewart.

Check out the Instagram below:

They should have got Tom Hardy for the role as he looks, bald, a little like Patrick Stewart. Seemed to work in Star Trek Nemesis.
