I'd say it's rather... uncanny.

You can see there that Fassbender and McKellan have similar features, but McAvoy's facial features look much more "aggressive" or "stressed" than Stewart's. Kinda like the difference between George Takei and John Cho. One reason why I never really liked the choice for young Xavier.

I don't think they're as convincing as, say Quinto and Nimoy or McGregor and Guinness but I think McEvoy makes a better Young Stewart than Tom Hardy.

Having said that, McAvoy hasn't had to share screen time with Stewart yet, so it's possible I'll change my mind after I see DOFP.

Sorry if this has been raised before (I haven't read 80+ pages of this thread) but wasn't Bolivar Trask in Last Stand ?

If I recall correctly, he looked about as different to Peter Dinklage as is humanly possible...

IIRC, there was a character simply named "Trask", with no first name given. X3 did a lot of that--"lets just give this character this name", even though the movie character and comic character bear no resemblance to one another."

Its a funny explanation!

But this is the one duplicate character that does need to be explained at all though. We never heard his first name. Other than being called "Trask" they have nothing in common. Not just their ethnicities their jobs functions in the stories.

Both were involved in the containment of mutants, but that's about it.

So with Quicksilver in X-Men and Avengers, how long until a crossover?
