James McAvoy will step into the role of a young Professor X in X-Men: First Class for director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass). The film is set for a June 3, 2011 release.

McAvoy certainly has some big shoes to fill. Patrick Stewart put his stamp on the role in the first three X-Men films, and fans of the property will be unforgiving if McAvoy doesn't do justice to the beloved character.
