Hoult and Grammer returned as Beast in the 2014 film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hoult revealed to Joblo that Hank created a serum which controls his mutation, making him appear human unless he gets angry. Grammer reprised his role as the older Beast in a cameo at the end of the film. When asked by the younger Beast if he is alive in the future, Wolverine tells him that he is not.
