New Mutants: Anya Taylor-Joy Hints James McAvoy Will Appear as Xavier

"If it's not a really good part, I'll be like 'Eh, I'll think about it.' But I've always loved playing Charles and I've always had pretty interesting things to do as Charles, so if that continues, then yeah, of course I'd love to take part".

Whatever's on the horizon, it sounds like future X-Men movies will still connect to Bryan Singer's pre-existing canon. Ahead of the film's release on January 20, Universal Pictures has dropped the first three clips from the movie, where we get to see the X-Men: Apocalypse actor display two of those personalities: Hedwig and Patricia.

Hopefully, that means we'll be hearing a lot more about New Mutants this year, with Taylor-Joy's involvement, as she was excellent in The Witch. I can't say very much, but I would love to be a part of it. The actor also inadvertently let slip a little piece of casting news which was perhaps even more of a secret than her own inclusion in the film: the fact that Fox is treating James McAvoy as a dead certain inclusion in New Mutants.

Written and directed by Shyamalan, Split also stars Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Morgan) in the role of a young woman named Casey who's trying to escape her abductor (along with two other girls) by taking advantage of some of his other, more helpful personalities.

We brought it to Simon [Kinberg, x-franchise writer/producer] and he really liked it.

There's reason to believe James McAvoy will return as Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X. Fox is expanding the X-Men universe with The New Mutants.

If Joy Taylor-involvement were true, it might end up in the film James McAvoy, who she has been running Split. "I think this year's gonna' be very exciting".

Though producer Simon Kinberg had teased a year ago that the New Mutants movie by Josh Boone would include Professor X, nobody was really certain that McAvoy would return for the upcoming X-Men film.

While his involvement was previously rumored, this may be further confirmation that we'll see his return to the X-franchise.
