X-MEN: DOFP: Nicholas Hoult Reveals Why 'Beast' Looks Human In Some Shots
When the first few official stills from the movie were released, fans wondered why Hoult's Hank McCoy appeared normal looking at times, and then others as the bouncing blue Beast we know and love. In the following interview the actor spills all. Mild SPOILERS ahead..
"What's happened up to this point is between the time of the last movie and this movie my character has created a serum which basically controls his mutation so his appearance is normal as long as he doesn’t get worked up. Any animal instinct or urges, that kind of brings him out. So yeah, he changes into Beast a few times throughout the story and they've done some great action sequences with him this time, particularly in the mansion flying around on these chandeliers and stuff."
One of the defining traits of Hank McCoy has always been his coming to terms with his physical appearance while maintaining his gentle spirit and brilliant mind, so introducing this serum that allows him to look normal 90% of the time could really be seen as doing a pretty big disservice to the character. Of course we don't know exactly how it'll all play out, but based on just what Hoult says here I'd say they're in for a bit of backlash! What do you guys think?
