While many fans have questions regarding the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” three in particular have come up ever since photos from the set were leaked.
All three have to do with continuity issues following events in “X-Men: First Class” and “The Wolverine”. The first is why are there photos of Nicholas Hoult without his Beast make-up in the film considering that he seemed to permanently transform into the blue furry one at the end of ‘First Class’.
There’s also the issue of James McAvoy’s Charles X. Xavier being able to walk around with full use of his legs despite seemingly being made a paraplegic at the end of the last film. Finally there’s the issue of Wolverine’s claws which seem to have become metallic again despite reverting to bone at the end of “The Wolverine”.
In an interview with JoBlo, Hoult answered the first of those questions:
“What’s happened up to this point is between the time of the last movie and this movie my character has created a serum which basically controls his mutation so his appearance is normal as long as he doesn’t get worked up. Any animal instinct or urges, that kind of brings him out.
So yeah, he changes into Beast a few times throughout the story and they’ve done some great action sequences with him this time, particularly in the mansion flying around on these chandeliers and stuff.”
Whether he’ll eventually be unable to make the serum anymore is unknown at this point.
