    I think they need to do it just to make him look older if we're jumping all the way to the 80s.

    I was wondering if we were ever going to get a bald McAvoy.

    He was never not coming back.

    Also, in regards to bald McAvoy, that would just look... weird. I can't see it. I'd rather he look old and weathered and maybe at the end of Apocalypse start to go bald or something. I dunno. I'm having a hard time picturing McAvoy bald.

    Okay.

    So I watched it again.

    My whole Mystique time-travelling into herself to rescue Wolverine isn't so much the slam-dunk I thought it was, because my reasoning was, that only a time-traveller would be able to find Wolverine down there so quickly.

    On the boat, just before we found him, we see the front page of the ruckus on the White House lawn listed as something that happened yesterday, which means that Wolverine had been without air for possibly as long as 24 hours by that point yet seemed to revive instantly upon reaching the surface.

    But really, even finding him in less than 24 hours is still bordering on the Supernatural.

    Well, even though DoFP rewrote the timeline, it still acknowledged that the events of all the previous X-Men movies happened in the original history. And Xavier was bald in his cameo appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which took place in 1979; andApocalypse is set in the '80s. I don't see why changing history would change Xavier's hair-loss pattern, so it stands to reason that he should be bald in the new movie.

    I never said I had a problem with him being bald based on the timeline. I just said I can't picture McAvoy, the actor - not Xavier, the character - bald. But I'm sure that'll change once I see images, footage, etc.

    Well, now that he knows baldness is a real danger, he'll just have to have Beast make him a special vitamin shake to prevent any looming follicular decay. :p

    If it was natural. There's always a chance a specific event could have caused it, and if that event doesn't happen in the new timeline he might not lose his hair.

    It's been a rule of thumb in the comics that his telepathy drove him bald, because he's just that powerful.

    Well, it depends on how heavy the evidence is. We've seen what has happened to the Catholic Church when they tried to dismiss allegations. Until there's a trial,we can't know "for sure: what happened. We can make bad assumptions. In Chicago, Democrat Derrick Smith was arrested for bribery a week before the primary elections.The Party still endorsed him, and he won. And he won in the general election. (And later was convicted on the same charges)


    Oh, and for the record,i think Singer is an EXCELLENT director , especially of X-Men (i also loved Jack the Giant Slayer too; had high expectations for Superman Returns)

    Umm..yeah, like Michael Jackson...
