I thought Beast was great in the movie, Hoult did a good job and the suit was awesome once he changed, loved his fight with Azazel as well.

I thought about that the day he was announced to be on First Class.

But there are more young actors out there that can be a good Cyclops too. Its not a hard role to cast at all.

I thought Hoult was great at portraying Hank at his most vulnerable stage in life. He was completely unsure of himself. He had trouble figuring out what he wanted, and once he figured it out actually pursuing it. He developed the "cure" because he was so unsure and uncomfortable in himself. Thought Hoult did a great job in showing all that emotion without ever actually having to say it. Looking forward to see where they take Beast/Hank in a possible FC sequel.

It's hit or miss for me. I really like how Beast looks in the international trailer, and there are a couple moments in the film I think he looks good (for instance, when Azazel has him pinned on the beach and is holding his tail just above Beast's eye). Then, there are other times I just don't care for it, like after Mystique says, "...mutant and proud."

I know it's only a two hour movie or so but i thought the sped up transformation of hank in the movie was kind of off now that i think about it. When we first meet him he is obviously very consumed by his abnormally large feet, they're quite weird but there's worst "deformities" to have, then all of a sudden after the injection he transforms into this blue cat looking creature within the span of a few mins.

You'd think someone who was so paranoid/self conscience about having big feet would probably want to kill themselves after transforming into a blue cat creature within a couple of mins. There's no way he'd embrace his new form within a day or two or not at least not be incredibly traumatized.

I can imagine that's something they'd deal with in a sequel. But the next day, right after his transformation, they had to stop a nuclear war. There was just no time to mope around.

Hank's transformation takes place deep into the film near the climax, so they didn't have time for him to mope and question whether or not he should continue to live. It doesn't look good on Hank's part to contemplate suicide anyway, since this new covert group needs him and accepts him no matter what he looks like.

If anything, it shows that Beast was able to put away his feelings about himself temporarily for the greater good. When a nuclear war is on the horizon and a club of evil mutants is bent on world domination, you gotta believe in that old saying, "Kick ass now, cry later."

The actor did very well. When I first saw Beast I wasn't too impressed. It was ok later but I think they can still improve on his look. I like seeing a more bestial Beast. If they can combine this look with KG's mature, dignified but completely non-bestial look I will be happy. Plus also give him some action scenes that require super agility.

I think they should hire some parkour guy to do some stunts in the sequel.

Parkour would be ideal for Beast. It's a very agile, athletic sport and thats ultimately what I want to see in Beast.

A rooftop chase scene with Beast would be amazing...I'd think a rudimentary version of the Danger Room is worth debuting in a sequel.

Same here. It's not just the look either. It was also the way he played the character. That kind of stiff, awkward, self-doubting geekness is what I would have expected from a "young Scott" rather than from Hank who has traditionally been portrayed as a funny, outgoing fellow.

They had to play up that angle so that it would make sense for his reasoning to take the cure. If he was a more outgoing and confident and self-assured character, his insecurities about his physical appearance wouldn't have gelled as much.

I liked the movie Beast except for a few nitpicks. He shouldn't have worn glasses. It's such a stereotype that geniuses must wear glasses, and since they made him a trained pilot in the movie as well, then he should never have needed them in the first place.

I get that they're trying to show the gentile beast with glasses, but they looked so much like prop toy glasses against his fur that it took away from the look.

Also, I wish his fur was a little less royal blue and that he didn't have that fur around his neck area. It was really distracting and looked like a shirt collar haha.

One last comment... it didn't really sound like Hoult's voice anymore after the transformation. If that was still his voice, that was pretty amazing.

Well put actually. I liked Hoult as Hank, and I think he's a talented young actor. He certainly played the role with conviction.

Comic Beast wears glasses all the time. First Class was just trying to be accurate to the look.

Yup. It was polarizing because here you have the most bizarre looking creature we've seen yet in the movie, wearing glasses. It'll look pretty silly to see on-screen and maybe even a bit jarring.

Haha I know it's a nitpick, but if they wanted to have him with glasses, they should have been consistent. All of a sudden he doesn't need them while flying a jet?? At least have him wear goggles. I guess my main problem was that the glasses just looked so fake when they were on blue Beast.

He was a scientist and a wiz kid almost his entire life. I don't think he ever pushed himself in any physical endeavors.

It made sense within the context of the scenario.
