First look at Beast in Days of Future Past

April 5th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Director Bryan Singer has tweeted out his most revealing photo yet from the set of his new film X-Men: Days of Future Past, and it features Nicholas Hoult as Beast! The pic came with the following note:

“Many a monster wears the form of a man; it is better of the two to have the heart of a man & the form of a monster.”

For those of you not familiar with the quote, it comes from Jeanne Marie Le Prince de Beaumont’s original story “Beauty and the Beast”. Rather fitting I must say.

Singer has managed to gather an impressive cast! The film will include Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, and Boo Boo Stewart.

X-Men: Days of Future Past  is set to be released in theaters on July 18th, 2014.
