Following X-Men: Apocalypse, Byron Burton, who worked as an assistant to composer John Ottman on the film, wrote special script for solo Beast movie titled X-Men: Fear the Beast. While it wasn’t supposed to be a Wolverine-centric adventure, the film would boast one of the most fan-pleasing iterations of the character to date.
X-Men: Fear the Beast was supposed to take place in the 1980s and revolve around Hank McCoy Nicholas Hoult and his titular mutant alter ego opposing Mister Sinister. The idea was for the film to launch a series of standalone X-Men films in which Sinister threw obstacles to the heroes one by one. Unfortunately, the project was scrapped as Simon Kinberg had other plans for the franchise with his Dark Phoenix movie.
In the opening scene of Fear the Beast, there was going to be a cameo of Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman) in the highly anticipated yellow suit and mask. In the scene in question, Wolverine interrupts a fight between the Beast and a Wendigo in an Inuit village by rocking his clothes and pulling his mask over his face. Unfortunately, fans will never see it, but was it the best decision in the end?
