Over the last few months, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ director Bryan Singer has revealed a lot about the upcoming movie but now it is Nicholas Hoult’s turn. The Beast actor revealed today that his contract is up after the next movie and this could be his last movie with the franchise.
In an interview with E! Online, the actor revealed the news.
“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.”
While it isn’t uncommon for contracts to be renewed in these superhero franchises, Bryan Singer has made it quite clear that ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will end the current X-Men series. Nicholas Hoult however said that “I have a good time playing him so I’d keep making them,” so maybe there is hope for more movies featuring the Beast.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ comes to theaters on May 27, 2016 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Channing Tatum, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ian McKellen. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
