First Look At Nicholas Hoult As Beast From X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

First Look At Nicholas Hoult As Beast From X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Bryan Singer has posted our first look at - what we assume is - actor Nicholas Hoult in his new, notably less cat-like Beast makeup for the upcoming X-flick. Check out the image along with a Tweet from the director after the jump..

The quote is from Jeanne Marie Le Prince de Beaumont's Beauty and the Beast. A lot of the Tweets sent out by Singer and other directors such as Marc Webb - who have really embraced the social networking site as a means to promote their movies - haven't always been particularly interesting. But I think you'll agree that this shot of Hoult as a much more human looking Hank McCoy, aka Beast, is pretty damn cool indeed.

He looks better than first class. Beast is one of my favorites.
Nivekian - 4/5/2013, 11:00 AM
He's supposed to have Blue eyes...
HelaGood - 4/5/2013, 11:00 AM
much better

X3 at least got the Beast makeup right.. I assume that Singer's original designs were used in that film before he left to make Superman Returns.. less hassle for the actor and looks more natural/faithful
spidey1994 - 4/5/2013, 11:01 AM
Much better ;)

That's very much like Kelsey Grammer's... who's portrayal of Beast I deem superior.
CCB1984 - 4/5/2013, 11:02 AM
@TankD I assume he's lighter so he's not confused with Mystique
Fantine - 4/5/2013, 11:03 AM
Look extremly like Kelsey, I hope hes secretly returned and Singer is keeping it from us.

RIP Roger Ebert

Daaaaamn.... Now THAT'S a Beast, right there. And I agree--that looks much better than what we got in First Class. Not that I hated the design they went for the Beast, but he honestly just looked like a giant blue lion. And I can kinda see a similarity between this Beast and Grammer's Beast *hint, hint, Singer*. ;P

Reminds me of Beast from the 90s series, I'll take.
dezdigi - 4/5/2013, 11:04 AM
He's supposed to have blue underwear on!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 4/5/2013, 11:04 AM
@Theodora - I second that, as well.
marcvader1 - 4/5/2013, 11:04 AM
Someone should do the same with the first class beast and put them side by side.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 4/5/2013, 11:05 AM
Anyone else getting a 90's Beast vibe off this? Brings back damn good memories.... :)
PsyGuy - 4/5/2013, 11:07 AM
Much better!!!!
BackwardGalaxy - 4/5/2013, 11:08 AM
He looked so bad in FC. This, so far, looks better.
TheGreenBastard - 4/5/2013, 11:09 AM
Looks good, I'm really looking forward to this movie.
SimonPhoenix - 4/5/2013, 11:09 AM
its supposed to be.... REALLY? fanboys quit nitpicking. You're gonna see it anyway so STOP WHINING!

One if my biggest - and really only - problems with First Class was Beast's look. Some shots looked ok (in the plane etc) but mostly he just looked silly. This is SO much better.
Stumblin - 4/5/2013, 11:13 AM
@Nivekian, not necessarily true. Beast has been colored in comics with yellow/gold eyes as well. Don't get hung up on the little things :D

As for the photo, it looks OK.
RobGrizzly - 4/5/2013, 11:15 AM
I might be mistaken, but i believe Singer has stated Beast is his favorite X-man in the past. Its only natural he would get this right.
blvdnoise - 4/5/2013, 11:15 AM
An improvement from what I gather here..
DioFoRio - 4/5/2013, 11:16 AM
lol @ Gus....

Stumblin "HEYYYYY!"

I like that they've shown him growing as the beast, and closer resembling the X3 look. Even if I don't like it, continuity matters to me
OrgasmicPotatoe - 4/5/2013, 11:18 AM
Awesome, I wasn'T a fan of First Class' Beast. Wasn't so bad, wasn't so good either. This looks really good, for only half a face !
OrgasmicPotatoe - 4/5/2013, 11:21 AM
@CC To not confuse him with Mystique ?

I'm having a hard time thinking how can someone confuse a big furry beast with a half naked scaly-skinned women with Red hair. They're both blue, okay. But I can still see the difference between Magneto and Charles alright.
Manhunter - 4/5/2013, 11:22 AM
Great!!!! Now bring on the costumes!!!
Ramiel - 4/5/2013, 11:24 AM
Kesley will always be the perfect Beast.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 4/5/2013, 11:26 AM
Oh, and, uh, Singer, Fox......

Please get on it..... ;)
darkknightmare2012 - 4/5/2013, 11:26 AM
i thought he looked horrible in the first class .. big improvment.. im just not a fan of bryans work .. aside from his work on house .. but i really did not like the first xmen .. and the second one was better but still lacked .. i know ratner did worse with his take but i would of loved if they would of rolled with someone else for this movie ..
gambgel - 4/5/2013, 11:28 AM
LOVE IT!!! much closer to comics Beast and as some said, to Grammer's Beast. Great move! and we can tell an age difference compared to FC. love it
JerBear - 4/5/2013, 11:29 AM
The make up was just dreadful in First Class, for every character. Beast, Mytique, Azazel. First Class was good for what it was, but the costume and make up department should be fired.
Sanderman - 4/5/2013, 11:36 AM
MUCH better!
OrgasmicPotatoe - 4/5/2013, 11:37 AM
I wonder if they're going to find an explanation for it or it's just going to be normal.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 4/5/2013, 11:40 AM
@OrgasmicPotatoe - They'll probably drop a subtle explanation for his new appearance. Most likely a mutation phase that Beast went through over the years.
