With “X-Men: Apocalypse” set to serve as the end of the ‘young X-Men’ trilogy, and the end of the contract the stars signed on for, the question quickly becomes whether any of the cast such as James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence will continue on with the series.
Speaking with E! Online, Beast himself Nicholas Hoult confirms ‘Apocalypse’ is his last official outing:
“This is the last one I’m signed up for. The first one did so well and [Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly. It’s like, ‘Wow, people really want to see the films’ and the best thing is it’s a great crew and cast to work with and he’s a fun character.”
So would he be open to signing up for more films? “I have a good time playing him so I’d keep making them.”
Director Bryan Singer has previously indicated that ‘Apocalypse’ will bring a definite end to the current X-Men trilogy. Filming on “X-Men: Apocalypse” is slated to begin in Canada next month.
