Nicholas Hoult details Beast transformations in ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’ and action scenes

Fans of the X-Men have been asking how and why Nicholas Hoult appears as a human in some early photos from X-Men: Days of Future Past and his blue, hairy self in others.

x-men-days-of-future-past-michael-fassbender-nicholas-hoult-fightingHoult revealed the details during an interview with Joblo published Thursday.

“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.”

More on the action, Hoult says “It’s animal and athletic and gymnastic and fast and agile, basically. He’s very strong and throws people around a fair bit.  Obviously, it’s a seventies film and I would have loved to have more kung fu in it.  That’s something that Michael has been a big advocate of as well, getting some kung fu scenes in.”

“The makeup guys just tried to look after me as best as possible basically. They had fur falling off and sticking it back on.  There’s been fur ending up in lots of amusing places on this film. I’ve eaten quite a lot of the stuff.  So yeah, that’s just a maintenance thing that once we get going on scenes like that, because I sweat a lot as well, so it’s coming off all over the place and they do a great job of keeping it ready for the film.”
