James McAvoy is back on Instagram teasing the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie, which sees the actor return as Professor Xavier.

James McAvoy posted video of himself with clippers in which his reflection of a full head of hair can be seen.

"He approaches," James McAvoy teased, as Professor X is bald, with hashtags for Charles Xavier and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

A set image has also hit the net, which could be from some sort of building; maybe a church?

Plot details for the X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie are said to be "crudely adapted" from the 2006 X-Men: The Last Stand movie, but to be more in line with the Chris Claremont and John Byrne X-Men comic books. Lilanda will lead the quest to imprison and execute the Dark Phoenix, which sends her into conflict with the X-Men.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix has a November 2, 2018 release written and directed by Simon Kinberg also starring Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, with Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) and Jessica Chastain is rumored for Lilandra.
