Did The X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Timeline Reveal A Former Mutant’s Cameo?
Last week a new bit of viral marketing for X-Men: Days Of Future Past popped up. The web site in question is titled 25 Moments, and it features a new interactive Timeline that chronicles events from right after X-Men: First Class, all the way to the future in 2018. During the timeline little things dropped that give us hints as to where the movie is going, but it also might imply a cameo that could happen as well. Possible SPOILERS from here on out, so reader beware.
A couple of weeks ago it was reported that Kelsey Grammer had filmed a cameo for Days Of Future Past. Not only did he agree to do it, apparently he jumped at the chance to dawn the blue makeup and fur of Hank McCoy/Beast again. However, even though he was willing and able there was no word on just what his cameo might entail.
That is where speculation comes into play. Not only will Grammer be returning for what people could only assume is a much older Hank McCoy in the future, but the interactive timeline that was released says that in 2015, “Hank McCoy is dragged from his home and murdered by an angry mob of Human Majority protesters outside his home in upstate New York.” Put two and two together, and it seems as if Grammer may be the Beast that is murdered in his home by the angry mob.
Now once again this is pure speculation on my part. If Grammer was willing to come back and he was willing to go through the grueling makeup process again, that would indicate that he would be doing a Beast cameo and not just a background shot with him standing in it. While we wont know for sure what the nature of his cameo will be, you can find out for sure when X-Men: Days Of Future Past hits on May 23rd later this year.
