First look at James McAvoy as bald Professor X

Bryan Singer took to Instagram last week to show off the first image of the James McAvoy going under the barber's clippers for his role as Professor X in the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.

With a script from X-Men: Days Of Future Past's (2014) Simon Kinberg plus Singer stalwarts Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris (X-Men 2), X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the 1980s and finds Xavier, Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) facing off against massively powerful mutant Apocalypse (Isaac) alongside younger versions of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Ororo 'Storm' Munroe (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Jubilee (Lana Condor).

Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class) is back as Moira MacTaggert, and there will be appearances from Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and, reportedly, the older Magneto, played as usual by Ian McKellen.

X-Men: Apocalypse is due for release 19 May next year.
