X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST - First Look at Beast!
Director Bryan Singer has tweeted out his most interesting photo yet from the set of his new film X-Men: Days of Future Past, and it features Nicholas Hoult as Beast! The image 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".
Singer has managed to get the whole X-Men gang back together again! 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.
Based on the comic book storyline "Days of Future Past," which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's 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.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to be released in theaters on July 18th, 2014.
