Bryan Singer Reveals Possible New Beast Concept Art for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     April 5, 2013


Director Bryan Singer may have just given X-Men fans a sneak peek of the new look for Beast in X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The story of the film will include not only the characters seen in Matthew Vaughn’s successful X-Men: First Class, but will also incorporate a huge cast of characters from Singer’s original X-Men trilogy.  While the exact details of the film have been under wraps for the most part, the plot from the mythology involves Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat traveling back in time to warn past X-Men of an event that could rock the globe.

Singer recently tweeted an image of what appears to be concept art for Beast, and the design is a bit different from the one seen in X-Men: First Class.  Hit the jump for more, including the image.

Some had issues with the look of Beast, played by Nicholas Hoult, in X-Men: First Class, so a change might be to appease the viewers, or maybe show an evolution in Beast’s power.   The film also features Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Peter DinklageX-Men: Days of Future Past is slated for release July 18, 2014.

Singer shared the image on his Twitter with the following caption:

“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 comparison’s sake, here’s Hoult’s Beast from X-Men: First Class (click to enlarge):

      Lincoln on Pandora

  • Jon

    The beast I know doesn’t stand up on two feet WTF

    • LOL

      You must not know who Beast is, then.

  • Germ-X

    Looking more like Kelsey Grammer’s Beast. Makes sense for aging purposes.

  • Hugo Boliche

    Good. Hoult’s performance in “First Class” became shockingly bad once he had to suffer through all those latex prosthetics. Smart of Singer to dial it back.


    Looks good. Though, how come Beast gets a yellow outfit yet Wolverine still has not? People used to say Wolverine would look silly on film in the yellow suit… WTF?!!!

    Anyway, this image proves one thing, were ready for a Thundercats movie now!

  • Strong Enough

    god singer is so over dramatic. what a wuss

    • Jesus

      Right, because quoting a classic piece of literature like Beauty and the Beast is neither relevant nor something Beast would likely do.

      • Jose


      • Strong Enough

        Nope. Singer is still a wuss

  • Famke’fans

    Looks much better, I think. Really loved First Class, but always thought Beast looked like an angry rabbit…

    • PresidentObama

      You’re saying he wasn’t a rabbit?

    • Ur mom

      He looked like an angry cat to me.

  • J Dogg

    • Anonymous

      I was thinking the same thing. But I think they should replace James Marsdan.
