Beast fights Magneto in new X-Men: Days of Future Past set photos

Jun. 6, 2013by: Alex Maidy

More photos have emerged from the in production X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and this one is a bit of a puzzle. The scene featured in these photos pits Beast <Nicholas Hoult), decked out in his best 70s threads, against Magneto. The two appear to be duking it out in a fountain that I presume is on the grounds of Charles Xavier's mansion. But, I also don't know the context of their fight so this could really mean anything.

The interesting thing is that Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is directly meeting with one of the X-Men outside of a battle situation. Jennifer Lawrence in her Mystique make-up pops in the corner of a photo which leads me to believe this may be an unexpected visit from their frenemy Erik Lehnsherr. Could the events of DAYS OF FUTURE PAST be forcing the two sides to work together to resolve the crisis?

I am still reserving all judgement on X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST until I see footage in the form of a trailer. Yes, there are a lot of characters and yes some decisions sound business-oriented rather than in the name of quality. Hopefully THE WOLVERINE proves the mutant movies can still be good and that X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST follows suit.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be released on July 18th, 2014.

F'n sweet but....

I'm all for X-Men DOFP but, why does beast still look a little goofy. It's like they said ok we couldn't quite get him right in first class so lets just slap a big blue beard on him for DOFP.

I can't be the only one

Who thought that Avengers and Iron Man were great but all the X-men movies were poor. In my opinion the superhero movie ranking would be something like Avengers, Iron Man, Kick-Ass, Spiderman 1, Captain American, Batman Begins, Thor, The Dark Night Rises, X-men, The Dark Night, Spiderman 2, Incredible Hulk, Xmen 2, X-men3, Spiderman 3

Interesting. I guess they are fighting over mystique, which makes sense in context of the relationships in the other films.

These shots look cool. I'll be honest, I'm happy they revamped Beast's look for this film. In First Class when he appeared in the blue fur at the end, I wasn't really impressed by the makeup. You could tell it was very prosthetic since the mouth couldn't move and they had to cgi Beast snarling, etc. So I dunno, disagree if you will, but I think the makeup for Beast is much better in this film.

All in all, still not that impressed by this movie. I think Singer is completely steamrolling

All in all, still not that impressed by this movie. I think Singer is completely steamrolling everything great that Vaughn did with First Class. DOFP seems more like Singer needs to boost up his ego after the last couple of flops he delivered for us (Valkyrie, Superman Returns, Jack the Giant Slayer, etc.)

Yes you're right, there's a lot of people on here that have never read the source material and that offer ridiculous comments. I know my X-Men material and have read the actual DOFP story arc and see promising things here. Marvel has never really adapted a story page for page or word for word. Just like in the X-Men cartoon, DOFP was adapted with a different twist and we'll definitely see the same here.

its the fact its using the title that is really making me hate this. If it was first class two i think i would be at the other end of the spectrum. saying this looks great.
I do get that they dont always follow the story to a T, but usually the comics title is not used.
also the fact they are trying to connect the first xmen films, first class and this together worries me, just dont see how it can work for a good days story to work.

i mean this could be great, but i still think at the

I can agree with why you're irritated by this inconsistency. Singers basically borrowing the story line but he's making it his own. Doubt we'll see Nimrod, Senator Kelly (obviously), and Rachel Summers included in this. But I'm excited what characters will fill these very important roles.

I think you're right. Outside of the time travel aspect of the story, I think this movie will be a large departure from the story of the comics. And I agree that the stories are not always followed to a T, but there's a huge difference between changing a few things for the sake of a more rounded story or for logistical purposes. But creating an entirely new story and slapping a fan-favourite classic title on it is really just insulting.

I think the finished product will not be DOFP, but

I think the finished product will not be DOFP, but just another X-Men film. I am keeping my expectations low by assuming that I will not be seeing THE Days of Future Past storyline on screen and just another X-Men flick. Will I be disappointed? Sure. But at least I can hopefully enjoy the movie for what it is.

I'm just not excited for this at all, I would have much rathered a direct sequel to first class and expand on what was a good movie by adding the core X-Men into it, I still think Singer saw what bringing together the Avengers did, and how much it made and he went well I can do that and is throwing this together and its going to turn out more like X3/ Originas, than X2 I guess time will tell like you guys have said but its not at the top of my list

From the beginning, it looks like they're doing an adaptation of the CARTOON's DOFP, sadly... NOT the comics' !
And even that, they doing it SOOOO approximately !
I'm more and more afraid of the final result, even though I want to believe in Singer who, in my opinion, did a good job with his two X-Men films.
It wasn't a literal adaptation (far from it), but the spirit was there.

When it stops raining, one of these days, I'll swing by old Montreal to try and catch some spy pics of my own! To share with you all, of course.
As for this latest X movie, as much as I would like Marvel to get the rights back, I won't complain about it. I have a hard time understanding the hate for Singer here on Joblo. The guy did make X-Men 1 and X-Men 2, both of which were good and very good movies. And the first one being one of the reasons we finally got other superhero movies other than

Now, on the downside, a friend of mine who's been working on the movie (I won't say in which department) recently told me he saw some of the sentinels and that most fans will be very disappointed and angry with their rendition... Is my friend right? Should I trust his judgment? All he knows of X-Men (apart from the live action movies) is the 90s cartoon. Then again, the 90s cartoon sentinels were kinda cool and pretty classic looking.

Did Beast just "Hulkout"? Because in the other stilsl he is "human form" and in this he in secondary mutation form and those clothes are a little small for him. So is he able to transform back and forth or did he just temporarily "cure himself"?

If they took anything from The Last Stand it should be Kelsey Grammer. He could be a huge role in a film version of Days of Future just because hes Kelsey Grammer.

Awww man why'd you have to describe the pics in the title? I know they may not be spoilers, but I know too much about this movie from Singer's Tweets alone to be "spoiled" more by set-pic descriptions.

STOP hating on Bryan Singer

seriously, i dont get why people hate him so much. X-Men was decent for when it came out and X2 was legit. that nightcrawler white house scene is still one of the best superhero movie scenes to date. people acting like he's Brett Ratner or something.

X2 is overrated. If wolverine wasnt in it, it would have sucked.

His casting isnt great either, cyclops rouge and storm where terribly cast.

Im guessinng your not a proper xmen fan? If you where you would understand the hate.

While some of the small details I haven't liked what Singer has done. As a whole, Bryan Singer knows his shit and deserves to helm this sequel. Don't worry, the trailer will blow people away.

the soloist makes me laugh,
this is the guy who hated on TAS2 until everyone started looking forward to it.
what a whopper!!

now @ TAE K Honestly signer made an ok film once. but his casting is awful, cyclops, rouge, magnito and storm are all horribly miscast.
the reason X2 works is because it is mostly focused on logan.
have you ever read days of future past out of interest?

All I know is that Michael Fassbender better have some bad ass epic scenes and lines like he did in First Class. He was easily the best part of the film and if his screen time gets pushed to the side, I will be very disappointed. And hopefully we get a couple of good scenes with young Magneto and older Magneto talking to one another....imagine the conversation they would have with themselves.

It'd be fun to put little bikinis on Magneto and Beast when they're in the water fountain....you could almost work with those pictures to make them look like a sexy pudding wrestling match. Is it weird that's what came to my mind first?
