Beast Rumbles With Magneto on Set of X-Men: Days of Future Past

Most people like to spend a nice day out strolling near a fountain and enjoying the weather. However, Nicholas Hoult’s Henry “Beast” McCoy and Michael Fassbender’s Erik “Magneto” Lensherr do things a little differently, as you can see in these photos from the Montreal set of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, posted on

Below you can check out a side-by-side comparison of Hoult’s Beast form in First Class and then as he appears in these new photos. Note how his fur is curlier on the top of his head (possibly from the water fight) and comes down like a beard. The nose also looks a bit different and the general color much bluer. Perhaps this is a reflection of the more relaxed look of the character seen in a recent image revealed by Singer.

Opening July 18, X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Daniel Cudmore, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing and Adan Canto.

    I would’ve accepted a Friends joke also :)

    Is it wrong that I find Beast straddling Magneto to be sexually appealing…?

    Looks like they are moving away from the “cat beast” look that his face seemed to reference in the last movie. Still looks cool though. Beast is one character they’ve pretty consistently done well in the movies. Even Kelsey Grammer’s Beast in the abysmal “The Last Stand” was a silver lining on that very dark cloud.

    Is it just me or does it look like Beast is “Hulking out”? His clothes are torn on the seams and we’ve seen pics of him as a normal guy. Could be an image inducer as in the comics or they could be making him a character that transforms…

    I think I just became a furry.

    Maybe he will be temporarily transformed back to human form somehow? Or maybe his clothes are just battle torn.

    I find this oddly erotic…
