James McAvoy Read the Script
We’ll have full conversations with the cast crew closer to that date, but McAvoy also offered a brief update on the status of his next production, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past wherein he reprises his role as Charles “Professor X” Xavier.
“I read the script yesterday,” says McAvoy. “…I had my first costume fitting. He looks cool. He looks fun. I like his ’70’s costumes.”
In another interview, he stated the following:
“It’s great. It’s really good and strong. I think fans will love it. I think people who have never seen any of the X-Men films before are going to be really into it. I think it’s satisfying and giving people what they want, while at the same time being challenging and giving them something different, new, and unexpected.”
Bryan Singer Opens Up
On motion capture:
“I might have use for some of Jack the Giant Slayer’s motion capture techniques [in Days of Future Past.] I don’t want to say how because that would give away what’s going to be in the movie, but I’ll be using that and perhaps simulcam technology for certain things. And I will be shooting stereo, true stereo.”
On The Last Stand:
“There are parts of X-Men 3… it isn’t what I would have done, but parts of it, I liked. Ellen Page was something I liked in X-Men 3 and I’m bringing her to Days of Future Past. Certain things are different. There was a lot going on in it and I wasn’t so happy with so many people dying, but then there were some really sweet moments with that kid, the cure kid.”
“I said I’ll ‘fix a few things’ [with Days of Future Past]. It won’t be its primary function but there will be some fixing. It’s a really cool story, and incidentally, it facilitates all of these characters. They weren’t just thrown in there. And they all play a fun role.”
Peter Dinklage On His Role
Someone on MTV Geek asked Peter about his role as Bolivar Trask (which has not been confirmed at this time), the scientist who created the Sentinels in the comics.
“Um, I have no comment, and, where did you hear that?”
After an awkward reply, he goes on:
“A raven brought you that crazy information? Wow. I need to read the script, then I can tell you who I’m playing.”
