Who would be a good hook up with Hank though? I would actually love Polaris so Havok can get some action...

Seriously, at this point who wouldn't want to join Magneto's team vs. Xavier's? Magneto's got all the beautiful women and the cooler fashions.

When Beast became older and more confident, especially when he left the X-men and became an Avenger, he seemed pretty handy with the ladies. I wouldn't worry about his chances, even with non-mutant women.

I wish there would've been more room to play around with Beast's insecurities and transformation. It felt too sudden to just have him show up in the hangar and boom - everyone just accepts it.

I feel the same way. I wish it wouldn't have been a instant transformation. I wish it was a gradual process that maybe even lasted more than one movie, that showed more and more changes, kind of like a less creepy and disgusting version of The Fly.

I'm not saying that, I just would've liked a little time for it to breathe. Maybe he avoids the team for a while and Mystique talks him into "coming out". Dragging it out over 2 films would be excessive.

I thought Beast's transformation was well done but I agree the aftermath should have been longer. Having it right before they go to Cuba and having him meet them at the hanger was a mistake, IMO.

It would've been too much to stop the movie for that.

I didn't even think about it needing more time to dwell on it. It's something to be saved for a sequel.

After watching this a second time, I still love how well done Beast was. His prosthetic didn't even bug me as much the second time around. Love love love what they did with the character

If you compare Beast in XFC with Beast in X3, the characterization actually lines up well. In XFC we learn that Hank has worked with the government in the past so it makes sense that he ends up working for the Department of Mutant Affairs in X3, and they also established his desire to look "normal" in XFC which carries over into X3. They even had a comment in X3 when he puts on his old uniform that it's "a bit smaller than I remember" which is actually great, since in XFC we can actually see that Beast was slimmer when he was younger. The only potential inconistency is that in XFC, Beast looks slightly more animalistic in the face than he does in X3, however this can be chocked up to a variety of factors, one of which being that during the decades between XFC and X3 the effects of the serum may have lessened slightly, making things such as his animal-like lips fade. At any rate that is a pretty minor inconsistency in what is overall a very consistent portrayal between the two films.

I agree. Beast is one of the characters to get the best characterization in the franchise. It does line up well, as you pointed out.

Very true, his characterization in XFC and X3 lines up quite well.

Beast's silhouette when he was walking up to the camera for his reveal makes me chuckle.

Just his puffy arms.

I think one of my favorite scenes in the movie was a very short scene of Beast in the X-Jet. The camera was facing him in the cockpit head-on and Beast let out this fearsome roar! It was sooooo cool!!!

Setting aside portrayal and blue fur, the human First Class Hank was pretty cute. I liked his glasses.

Being that Beast is my all-time favorite X-Men character, I was very pleased with how he was handled in the new movie. We actually got to see a (very much toned down) ape-like Hank McCoy in human form and a very feral animal form. I was very pleased with his characterization and his role in the film. Bravo.

I was distracted by how much Nicholas Hoult looked like James Marsden's little brother to me. I kept thinking, 'Why wasn't HE cast as Cyclops' brother? It's so obvious!'

The reveal made me snicker too (in a bad way). The think i noticed was the hair on the back of his neck sticking out of the collar...what was up with that?

That said, Nicolas Hoult as human Beast was good.

I was disappointed in Hoult if I'm honest. For some reason I expected to love him, but there's nothing this kid did that made me over-look the fact that he was a mis-cast physically. I didn't buy that Hank was so deeply ashamed of... his feet... that fit... fine... in shoes...

Hank and Mystique both were easily able to hide their mutations. Them wanting to get rid of them is more of a sign of their insecurities and desire to be like everyone else.

You preferred a much more muscle-bound Hank I presume?
