Who is this man pretending to be James McAvoy and what have you done with our Professor X? Oh, you mean the man that folks on the internet have been thirsting for the past few days really is James McAvoy? Well, hell, how did that happen?

Apparently, according to McAvoy, it’s all a part of his beefing up for his role in the upcoming film Glass, the final movie in of M. Night Shyamalan’s “Eastrail 177 trilogy.”

Makes sense now. The last time we saw Kevin Wendell Crumb in Split he was turning into The Beast — a most fitting name based on the reactions McAvoy has been getting on the internet.

Sooooo… how the heck did McAvoy do it? According to a video he shared on Instagram, he did by working out for four months with Magnus Lygdback, the same guy who trained Alicia Vikander to be Lara Croft and Alexander Skarsgård to be Tarzan.

Oh yeah, Lygdback also trains Michael Fassbender who has ties to both Vikander and McAvoy.

Here’s McAvoy showing off what he does on leg day…

Very funny…

Bro is looking swole though, I will give him that…

My only question now is, will Professor X also look like a friggin’ bodybuilder when we see him next year in X-Men: Dark Phoenix?
