X-Men Movies Thread

The first still picture of Kelsey "Frasier" Grammer as Hank McCoy aka "The Beast" from X3 is up at http://www.comicscontinuum.com/stories/0512/05/index.htm


There are also two stills of The Angel from X3 on the site as well.

Meh.

I think I'll pass.

I'm sticking to the Claremont/Byrne run (Uncanny X-Men # 107-143). Best run on X-Men comics by far, and the source for all the good ideas used (over and over again) in the comics and movies so far!

I'm really impressed with Ben Foster's transformation. As for the Beast, well, the pic's a little goofy, in my opinion. However, I'm still looking very forward to X3.

I wasn't going to look, but Mickey's appraisal of it being "goofy" made me curious...

I quite like it, and have to say that even though I wasn't a great fan of these films so far (the CG is ropey at the best of times), I think Ratner is doing okay. Certainly from what I've been hearing from the set (a friend of mine is doubling Hugh Jackman), the film remains very closely tied to X2 at least.

Keep in mind that I wasn't saying Beast looks goofy. It's just the pose he's in. Nonetheless, I think Beast's makeup looks great.

I wasn't interested in this at first 'cause I think Singer's a great director and I'm mad he's gone. But this looks awesome! :o

Gah - I still haven't seen all of the first one! Grr. But this is still very exciting.

Wasn't there a scene in X2 where we see a pre-Beast-transformed "Dr. Hank McCoy" on TV talking about violence against Mutants? How come he's not playing Beast?

Don't get me wrong though, I think KG's awesome. :P

Also I could be wrong, but I think at one time Robin Williams was seriously considered to play Beast, back when they were making part 1...?

Well, the new trailer is out and I must say that Ratner looks to have preserved the feeling of the first two.

And KG as Beast looks really mean and cool!

I LOVED The Age of Apocolypse back in the mid 90's, especially the art. Unfortunately afterwards they just went back to being lame and never knowing what the heck was going on in each issue. I eventually gave up...
:( (Plus you would not believe how unbelievably preachy and heavy-handed some of those stories could be. They make the Singer films look like the epitome of subtelty.)

I also like the cartoon series a lot, the ORIGINAL one not Evolution. (didn't even bother with that.) That was such a good show. I collected the comics based on it too. My fave character was the shape-shifter Morph. :)

I think you have to "upgrade" to Quicktime 7.0 now.

It's a real pain.

According to the LA Times it will most likely be directed by Bryan Singer again:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/

Basically it's another reboot with younger actors. It does sound like they're basically returning to that whole Xavier/Magneto friends/enemies thing again, even though it's already been done three times before. Also, not sure if this is true but according to another site they might be teenagers when they meet which totally veers away from the comic book. (They met in a hospital where Xavier was a psychiatrist.)

EDIT: For some reason the address was mixed up or changed.

Here's a better one: :)
