Playing James McAvoy Talks 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Battle, Getting Into the 'Patrick Stewart' Zone

James McAvoy isn’t very giving when it comes to X-Men: Apocalypse spoilers.

The 36-year-old actor dropped by ET’s Comic-Con suite at the Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday, ahead of the 20th Century Fox panel, to dish on his new film Victor Frankenstein with Daniel Radcliffe.

McAvoy, who was sporting a shaved head, admitted that his new “’do” was indeed for X-Men: Apocalypse.

“I got in a fight with a pair of scissors … for X-Men,” McAvoy told ETonline. “It’s time to get all ‘Patrick Stewart,’ so yeah.”

But the Scottish actor played coy when it came to a X-Men: Apocalypse surprise. When pressed for some intel on what fans could expect later that day, McAvoy had this to say.

“I think there’s quite a few of the X-Men cast here, like Sophie [Turner]’s here for something, Nick [Hoult]’s here for something, but I don’t know if we’re all here for X-Men,” he said, skirting the question. “Oscar [Isaac]’s in every movie getting made so Oscar would be here, But we might all be here for other things – maybe.”

McAvoy did reveal that he has seen Isaac as the titular villain, Apocalypse, and that the two go head to head in a huge fight!

“I’ve beat the shit out of him as Apocalypse,” McAvoy revealed, admitting that “it was awesome.”
