The sequel to X-Men: First Class will combine actors from the original X-Men trilogy and 2011′s ’60s-set prequel in a time travel story arc. The new film is rumoured to take place in the 1970s, so expect some funny outfits.
Nicholas Hoult will be back as Beast, and Singer’s tweet shows the character has aged a bit.

The film is currently in pre-production in Montreal with First Class stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender joined by Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore.
There’s still no word on whether Kelsey Grammer will reprise his role as Beast from 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand.
