X-Men: Days Of Future Past: First Look At James McAvoy As Xavier

X-Men: Days of Future Past isn't stopping its tweet-teasing cast previews anytime soon. That's a good thing, since we otherwise wouldn't be able to get sneak peaks provided by director, Bryan Singer like this Have-a-Nice-Day-tastic 1970's version of James McAvoy's Professor Charles Xavier.

We're still mostly unclear as to how or why, but this film will center around a time-traveling phenomenon which will somehow unite two distinct casts of both X-Men franchises past and present. While the Xavier character will be played by a more stolid, disciplined, and follicle-free contemporary counterpart by the returning Patrick Stewart, we see McAvoy's younger version in 1973, who clearly hasn't let the incident which left him wheelchair-bound in X-Men: First Class dampen his trendy party-going lifestyle. Consequently, this getup is so ridiculously 70's that when the fabric of these behemoth bell-bottoms rub together in his chair, it produces the noise, "bow chicka wow-wow." (In fact, Singer even stuck it with the 70's-inspired hashtag, "Serpico.")

Indeed, just looking at this pic makes you almost hear a copy of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" on a turntable situated next to a lava lamp amidst the stench of organic weed and a sense of post-60's gloom. However, this Xavier, despite sporting a getup seemingly ripped from a contestant on The Dating Game, knows that they see him rollin' and they most definitely hatin'. In this case, "they" could be a number of factors from the forces of Michael Fassbender's former friend-turned-nemesis, Magneto, or even a worse possibility, the giant robotic mutant-hunting Sentinels from an alternate future that must be prevented.

X-Men: Days of Future Past looks to come up with a groovy, "dy-no-mite" name for Xavier's wheelchair when it hits theaters on July 18, 2014. Check out the full photo of James McAvoy's 70's Xavier below.
