Check out a new concept art from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which will feature Oscar Isaac as the titular villain, but also the teen incarnations of Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and ­Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

The director recently told EW that the movie “is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens”, while at the same time it’s “kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters”. Speaking of, a month ago Josh Boone has been hired by 20th Century Fox to direct a new chapter, The New Mutants.

  • What she says:I'm fine
  • What she means:For me, Mad Max really solidified Nicholas Hoult as a serious actor. He deserves a leading role in a drama. I want to see him blossom and grow more as an artist and I'm honestly so proud of the kid from Skins. He is my sweet little angel baby child and he deserves all the roles he wants and he's just so talented that I could cry.

I am SO PUMPED FOR THIS THO!

We’d knit. There are photos of Nick, all muscular in leather pants with his head shaved, knitting a scarf. He made a ton of stuff. He made all our Christmas presents. I think Tom got in on it. But he dropped a lot of stitches. Not a world class knitter in my opinion.

I’d often go to yoga and - you’ll laugh - Charlize Theron taught me how to knit. So there was a lot of variety. There are even a few photos of me in leather pants and war paint, knitting. I’d get really mad if I lost my place… These days, I don’t even have to look down anymore. By the end of the year I’d made some knitted Christmas presents. And: I was much better than Tom Hardy.

- Nicholas Hoult brags about his knitting prowess. *g*

I so love how all the cast got into ‘arts & crafts’ on the set of Mad Max Fury Road. It should be a special behind the scenes featurette!

(Photos thanks to fangirlingicizing - I love that Tom did get a few moments worth for his beard in the film. Nothing to do with knitting, though.)
