‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ First Look: Beast Going Through Some Changes?

X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the follow-up to ‘First Class,’ is combining both new and old casts of the film franchise for one large time-travel adventure. Though we’ve only seen pics from the pre-production stages, we now have a first look at one of the characters: Beast! And it looks like he’s going through some new changes.

Director Bryan Singer has been working diligently to keep us all up to date on the project, and his latest tidbit comes in the form of a first look at Beast’s slightly revamped appearance for ‘Days of Future Past.’ When Nicholas Hoult‘s Dr. Hank McCoy first unleashed the Beast in ‘First Class,’ we saw a very animalistic creature take his place, but now some of his features seem to be altered in favor of more human-like qualities.

Will this new look make it into the final cut? Time will tell, but he certainly wouldn’t be the only character getting a makeover of sorts. Hoult’s co-star and former girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence revealed a while back that her allergic reactions to the Mystique makeup in ‘First Class’ prompted the creation of an alternate jumpsuit-like costume for her.

But we digress. First, take a look at some concept art for Beast in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past':

Aside from Lawrence and Hoult, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ will feature a star-studded cast filled with both old and new ‘X-Men’ players — James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Peter Dinklage, to name a few. It’s based on the comic book storyline, which centers on Kitty Pryde, who travels to the past to warn the X-Men of a history-altering attack on Senater Kelly. Plus, we’re finally gonna get to see those Sentinels every X-Men fan has been waiting for.
