One of the earliest official set images that director Bryan Singer revealed over the course of production on X-Men: Days of Future Past was a peek at some concept art for the character of Beast, played by Nicholas Hoult. While we saw Hoult go full beast-mode in X-Men: First Class, the concept art hinted at a bit of a redesign for the character in Days of Future Past. Sure enough, a batch of unofficial set photos for DOFP reveal that the character does indeed look fairly different from what we saw in the first film, as we get a look at Hoult in his brand new Beast makeup. Moreover, the images reveal a pretty intense-looking throwdown between Beast and Michael Fassbender’s Magneto.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on July 18, 2014.
