First look at James McAvoy in 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'

Bryan Singer has posted the first image of James McAvoy in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

The director uploaded the picture of McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier in the 1970s, complete with long-hair, patterned shirt and bell-bottomed trousers, on Twitter yesterday (May 9).

James McAvoy will appear in the film as a young Charles Xavier, with his scenes set in 1973. He will be joined by his fellow First Class stars - Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult – while X-Men veterans Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will reprise their roles for the modern day section of the time-travelling sequel.

Hugh Jackman's Wolverine also has a confirmed role and Halle Berry, Ellen Page and Anna are officially on board too. Meanwhile, Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is a brand new addition to the cast and will play the film's main villain. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on July 18, 2014.
