James McAvoy Cast as Professor X in X-Men: First Class

So it seems things are moving a long quickly with  X-Men: First Class which will focus on how Professor X and Magneto became bitter enemies.With Matthew Vaughn in the director’s chair and Jane Goldman penning the script we now have our first bit of casting news.

James McAvoy, who played the lead in the film adaptation of Mark Millar’s Wanted will play Professor Charles Xavier aka Professor X. I imagine the casting of Magneto won’t be too far behind.
