James McAvoy is starring in several of the year's highly anticipated films. Over the years, McAvoy has become one of the most talented actors in Hollywood. McAvoy will be putting his talent on display throughout the year.

Collider reports that McAvoy's first film this year is "Glass," which releases this weekend, and is the surprise sequel to M. Night Shyamalan's "Split" and "Unbreakable." "Glass" brings together McAvoy's character with Bruce Willis' character and Samuel L. Jackson's which were featured in "Unbreakable." James McAvoy nailed the range of personalities that were required for his character and is now ready for a proper conclusion to his story.

McAvoy returns as Professor X this year in latest X-Men film

McAvoy's most anticipated film this year is "Dark Phoenix." Comic Book reports he will return as Professor Charles Xavier this summer. The latest X-Men film has had its release date changed twice and fans are skeptical of the latest X-Men film. However, fans are excited to see McAvoy back as Professor X. His performance and Micael Fassbender as Magneto have been a highlight of the X-Men franchise.

Two months after the release of "Dark Phoenix," McAvoy will appear in "It: Chapter Two." The remake was a massive hit in 2017, and many considered it one of the best adaptations of a Stephen King novel. The sequel moves the story 27 years into the future.

McAvoy will play the role of Bill Denbrough, as an adult. The characters from the first film will now be played by McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader.

James McAvoy takes his talents to the small screen with BBC

McAvoy will also take his talents to the small screen in the BBC's miniseries based on the His Dark Materials book series.

James McAvoy will portray Lord Asriel. Asriel is a much different character than the others that McAvoy portrays in film this year. The number of roles McAvoy has in such anticipated films is remarkable. However, what's even more impressive is the versatility he has to portray all these characters. Many of Hollywood's actors end up being typecast into the same role, which they play over and over again, especially those who end up in the blockbuster films and TV series each year.

Despite being in so many potential blockbusters, McAvoy's roles are different from each other. He's become one of the most sought after actors in today's world, without being stuck in similar roles over and over again. That is something that he can be proud of, and something fans will enjoy throughout this new year.
