The most recent X-Men movies have somehow managed to dance around the fact that James McAvoy is playing Professor Charles Xavier, a comic book character known for his bald head and wheelchair. X-Men: First Class put McAvoy’s Professor X in that wheelchair, but X-Men: Days of Future Past inexplicably took him out of it for most of the movie before putting him back in it.

The trailers for the film have already shown us the young Professor X sitting in his wheelchair, shiny head gleaming, but footage exists of James McAvoy actually shaving his head and it’s far more entertaining than you’d expect.

The last time we were presented with an X-Men: Apocalypse clip, we were given a scene where Rose Bryne dumps exposition all over James McAvoy‘s not-yet-bald head. This new clip (while seemingly cut down from the full version of the scene) is significantly more action packed, showcasing a fight sequence between Ben Hardy‘s Angel and Kodi Smit-McPhee‘s Nightcrawler.

The biggest surprise hit of the year so far has to be Deadpool. For about a decade the character chilled on the shelf at 20th Century Fox, with fans demanding that the studio give them an R-rated version of the character after he was mistreated so badly in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds kept pushing for the movie to get made along with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and thankfully, this was the year all our dreams came true. Sounds like the kind of movie any actor would want to be part of, right?
