Watch James McAvoy becoming Professor X by shaving his head

X-Men Apocalypse will be in cinemas very soon, and it has a huge cast including some of the folks from Days of Future Past as well as all new young versions of the likes of Storm and Cyclops and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, just to make things complicated.

It will also see the return of James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier and if you thought that bald head was created with some kind of special effect this video will show you just how practical the whole thing was.

There's even a cameo from the rightly wonderful Patrick Stewart.

This is kind of a big deal in the X-Men universe as we've never had another actor play a wheelchair-bound and bald version of the character, other than Stewart. It's a sign of how the franchise is going to be making some big changes in the not so distant future, with Apocalpyse starting that transition.

There's more on the plate for McAvoy as well, with the latest news being that he could appear in New Mutants - that's a semi spin off title set to release in 2018 and focussed on a selection of characters we haven't seen before.

X-Men Apocalypse is in cinemas in Ireland on the 18th of May, 2016.
