Nicholas Hoult Goes Into ‘Beast’ Mode, Fights Michael Fassbender on ‘X-Men’ Set

If there’s one thing to take away from these latest X-Men: Days of Future Past set photos, it’s that no one messes with Nicholas Hoult when he’s all dolled up as Beast.

On Wednesday, the handsome British actor (and Jennifer Lawrence’s former flame) was spotted packing quite the punch as he sat on top of Michael Fassbender (who plays Magneto) in a fountain in Montreal, Canada.

Clearly having the upper hand when the cameras were rolling, Hoult, 23, managed to share a few laughs with his co-star in between takes as dozens of crew members worked around them.

Check out the gallery of Hoult in full Beast mode, above. Because it’s not every day you see a hairy blue superhero drinking a can of soda. With a straw.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in theaters in July 2014.
