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