Nicholas Hoult Is Down To Play Beast In An ‘Avengers’ & ‘X-Men’ Crossover

Nicholas Hoult revealed that he’s game for reprising his role of Beast in a potential X-Men and Avengers crossover movie.

Beast (Nicholas Hoult) has been a key part of the current X-Men movie franchise since 2011’s X-Men: First Class. Nicholas Hoult’s fan-favorite character Beast has gone from a scientist to full-blown superhero over the course of the last eight years. The character returns in next month’s X-Men film Dark Phoenix, but after that, the X-Men are heading to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the Avengers.

No X-Men members have been cast in the MCU just yet but Nicholas Hoult is already throwing his hat in the ring for the job. Nicholas Hoult recently spoke with MTV International and they asked if he’d like to see the X-Men and the Avengers crossover on the big screen. This is what he had to say about the exciting possibility.

“Yeah, I think that would be cool if they do blend them together.”

Nicholas Hoult also talked about wanting to play the role of Beast alongside the Avengers.

“I’m not sure what their plans are, but I loved playing the role and I got to take him to a new spot in this film and try different things so if there was a way to keep growing within that character then that’d be something I’d be interested in.”

The actor was then asked who would win in a fight between the X-Men and the Avengers.

“The X-Men, obviously.”

Nicholas Hoult did give a very interesting explanation for why he chose X-Men over Avengers though.

“It’s very different though, superheroes to mutants. They kind of exist in different worlds.”

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is directed by Simon Kinberg and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

“In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.”

Nicholas Hoult’s fan-favorite character Beast will return in X-Men: Dark Phoenix on June 7, 2019.
