New York: Actor James McAvoy is likely to go bald in 'X-Men: Apocalypse', but knows very little about the next film in the popular X-Men franchise.

The 35-year-old actor will reprise his role as a younger version of Patrick Stewart's character Dr Xavier in the film, reported Huffington post.

McAvoy said the film will be set in the 1980s and will see him emulating Stewart's bald look.

"I'll be older in this one. I think I'm losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that's kind of all I know," he said.

The last X-Men film, 'Days of Future Past', was released earlier this year and saw McAvoy and Stewart come face to face whilst attempting to alter a later event which threatened the existence of both humans and mutants.

The film grossed USD 739,657,477 worldwide and was widely praised by critics.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' is set to be released in 2016.
