James McAvoy Talks X-Men, The Crow and Wanted 2

During an interview with Getty Images Entertainment to promote his new movie Welcome to the Punch, James McAvoy also addressed other projects he’s got lined up and been linked.

About X-Men: Days of Future Past, he said: “The X-Men script? It’s in my inbox… I’ve still got to read it. I’m very excited about it, but I’ve just been doing so much of this (interviews) and working at night (in Macbeth in London’s West End) so I’m starting work at 9 and don’t finish until midnight so I’m not being flippant…I honestly can’t wait to read it and find out what I’m doing, but I’ve just got no time right now.”

When asked about claims he’s to take the lead in the reboot of The Crow, he has not signed on. “It’s not for real. I don’t think it’s materialized into anything truthful yet… it’s just been rumor mill stuff.”

He also addressed the ongoing saga surrounding Wanted 2. “They’re doing the right thing. They won’t go ahead with it unless they get a story that feel totally and utterly 100% passionate about. If they don’t have that, then frankly they shouldn’t go ahead. But if they get a story together that they feel that way about then great, yeah.”
