Good news for X-Men fans! Now that filming is completed for next year's mutant epic 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', James McAvoy has time to talk about the movie and all things X-Men. Total Film recently chatted with the actor and the 2 videos below are chock full of interesting quotes. In the first video, McAvoy discusses his love for the character of Charles Xavier and how he approached 2011's 'X-Men: First Class'.

Did you know McAvoy is a huge fan of the '80s cartoon 'ThunderCats'?  Yeah, neither did I, but in this video he displays an impressive knowledge of the show. He even discloses his fantasy - an X-Men / ThunderCats crossover movie! (Note: McAvoy mentions a fan-made trailer for a 'ThunderCats' movie, so of course I had to hunt it down. It really is amazingly well done, and you can check it out here.)

Now, this final video is mostly about McAvoy's new movie 'Filth', but it has one comment about 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'. The clip is worth watching in its entirety, but if you just want to hear the X-Men bit, skip to the 6:25 mark.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' opens on May 23, 2013.

Did you like McAvoy's portrayal of Charles Xavier in 'X-Men: First Class'?
