New 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Set Pics: Beast Drowns Magneto in Fountain
Thanks to Fan-Girl.org, fans can now get a closer look at Nicholas Hoult in his full makeup as Beast of "X-Men: Days of Future Past". With a transformed look of the ape-like mutant, Hoult is seen mercilessly attempting to knock down co-star Michael Fassbender in his role of Magneto by drowning him in a Montreal fountain.
In an interview with Bleeding Cool back when he's preparing "X-Men: First Class", Hoult revealed that Beast was his "favorite." The actor said, "As a character, I find Beast is fantastic ... There's this inner tension, because he's a scientist, and a careful man, and a worldly man, and he has this crazy exterior. He's scary."
The upcoming movie will be based on Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run. The story introduced the idea of an alternate future for the Marvel mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry and Peter Dinklage are some of many stars on board to support the much-anticipated flick from director Bryan Singer. "Days of Future Past" is scheduled for a July 18, 2014 release in the U.S.
