This will be Hoult’s fourth time portraying Hank McCoy aka Beast. His original contract with 20th Century Fox was fulfilled with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, so what made him eager to return for another installment in the successful film series?
“It’s a very different for Beast this time. That was part of the appeal for doing the movie, for me. Simon Kinberg, who wrote it, is directing this time and he had great ideas for where he wanted the character to go, so it’s exciting.”
“Dark Phoenix” flies into theaters on November 2, 2018.
Thanks to Universo X-Men for the heads up!
