Bryan Singer tweets first picture of the updated Beast from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I am both giddily excited and nervous as hell for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Along with the Black Suit Saga, Kraven's Last Hunt and the Dark Phoenix Saga it's my favorite comic book storyline ever. It grabbed me in that simple, unrelenting way that a great comic story can hook a child's imagination and the potential for a feature film is incredible.
The potential to fuck it up is also incredible, so I get nervous. I can't help it.
I liked Nicholas Hoult as Beast in FIRST CLASS, I dug that makeup. Today Singer tweeted a picture of half of Beast's face in Days of Future Past and it's not drastically different, but there are changes that seemed geared around showing more of the human beneath the blue. The nose area is less animalistic. Here's the tweet:
"Many a monster wears the form of a man; it is better of the two to have the heart of a man & the form of a monster" twitter.com/BryanSinger/st…— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) April 5, 2013
If Singer actually does tell a quasi-apocalyptic story here then I'll be happy. It's only natural to use Days of Future Past to split the First Class world away from the first X-Men trilogy and I'd like that, to be honest. In fact, I made a case for just that very thing in January of 2012 because I'm, like, totally smart and ahead of the curve.
But if he drops the ball on it the same way Brett Ratner dropped the ball on the Dark Phoenix Saga then there'll be hell to pay. The wrath of geeks like me will be unimaginable. Well, mostly just bitching on the internet, but unimaginable bitching on the internet!
Here's a big version of the whole image:
