Despite previous reports to the contrary, James McAvoy's Professor X will not appear in New Mutantsaccording to The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit. 

Producer Simon Kinberg previously said that Professor X would be included in the script. It is unclear if this new report means the character has been cut from the film entirely, or if another actor would be cast in the role

Jennifer Lawrence, McAvoy's co-star as Mystique for three X-Men films, once said that she, McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender, who played Magneto in those films, all agreed not to return unless they return as a trio.

New Mutants is due out in theaters April 13, 2018.
