Nicholas Hoult hints at X-Men future.

Nicholas Hoult has expressed interest in continuing with the X-Men franchise beyond the upcoming film Apocalypse.

The actor has appeared as the young Beast in both X-Men: First Class (2011) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), and will reprise the role for director Bryan Singer's next sequel.

Speaking to E! Online, Hoult acknowledged that X-Men: Apocalypse will fulfil his contractual obligation to 20th Century Fox.

"This is the last one I'm signed up for," he said. "The first one did so well and X-Men: 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.

"I have a good time playing him so I'd keep making them."
