The only thing different is the eye color...and color correction has made his blue slightly darker.

No, Dave had to make new prosthetics to go over the old ones to make the requested alterations - the mouth looks very different, among other things...

Don't know if thats a good thing or not.

His teeth look different too. Big under fangs like he should have.

What are those crease-like things at the corners of his mouth?

Yeah, the mouth and nose look like CGI to me.

It not CGI - it's all make-up...and after checking back with my sources, I understand this IS the original make-up, before the alterations Fox asked for, so JP is mostly correct - but the color change is due to different lighting. I do know that the X3 Beast could look green if photographed under the wrong lights.

Here are the answers from Nicholas Hoult. Nothing very interesting...


What drew you to the role of Hank McCoy/ Beast?

The fascinating part of the role for me was the chance to play Hank/Beast before and after his transformation. The combination of his intelligence and wit offset by his animalistic appearance was fun to play.

Anonymous
What did you think of the original Beast?


I thought Kelsey Grammer did a fantastic job when he portrayed Beast, his charm and eloquence was something I wanted to try and emulate. However, in First Class I play Hank younger before becoming a politician, when he is a scientist and still learning about himself and his abilities. So I didn't want to try and just play a younger Kelsey but also bring something new to the role.

Albert C.
Are you an X-Men fan and if so, did you have a lot of source material to go thru or did you make up your own version of Beast?


I am an X-Men fan, I grew up watching the cartoons and films. It was fantastic to have so much source material to draw from, I read lots of comics in the build up to filming to try and get the best sense of Hank.

Sean
Beast is my favorite comic book character. Did you feel any pressure to show his feral side, while keeping him as lovable as he is in the comics?


There is pressure when playing a character who is so iconic and loved by fans, so you have to approach it with respect. Hank is urbane whilst being slightly shy of his mutations in this story, but then later on once the transformation to Beast has taken place he should still be charming but have a feral edge.

Daniel
What type of preparation did you do for the role of Beast?


In preparation for the role I watched lots of Frasier and listened to people who spoke with a similar accent to Kelsey, my dialect coach and I worked on creating something towards Kelsey's dialect but without being an imitation. I also did lots of fitness training as being in the Beast costume and make up could be very tiring and tough physically.

Marcus
Will we get to see Beast in more of his iconic lab settings and sporting some Shakespearean quotes?


Yes, you get to see Hank in his element in the lab. Some of the genius inventions he creates are shown, and also some of the not so successful ones.

Tirzah
How long does it take to get your makeup on?


The make up took 4 hours to get on, during which time we would listen to music mostly, or if it was a very early call I sometimes fell asleep.

Ashton D.
Did they do any CGI on your hands and feet prior to Beast going blue to make him seem more ape-like as in the comics and shows?


Before the transformation Hank's feet are a CGI effect so I would wear a blue sock and then the larger ape like feet would be added in post production. I did wear shoes a few sizes larger so that in theory they would have fitted in.

Jason G.
Beast is a nasty combination of high intellect and brute strength. Which side is more evident in the movie, and which side do you relate to more?


You get to see both the brute strength and intellect of Beast in this film. If I had to choose which one I related to most it would have to be the intellect as I certainly don't have anywhere near the strength and speed he possesses. Although, the same could be said for the intellect...

I just wish they used his uniform on X3

That jacket looks much better than his XFC uniform.

I thought Kelsey Grammer's voice was perfect for Beast, so I'm glad to read that Nicholas Hoult is at least attempting that general way of talking.

I always "heard" Beast with Grammer's kind of dry, intellectual voice.

As far as my understanding goes, those blue and yellow get-ups we see are only worn at the end of the film and aren't truly uniforms as much as utility suits. But maybe that's just me.

Ok so I'm a little confused. There's been two versions of Beast's make-up in the film?

The make-up in the Russian trailer is the new and improved make-up; the make-up that'll appear in the final version of the film?

Or is it the make-up from the first teaser trailer?

I didn't even know they went through two versions of the make-up

jesus christ, who is making those hideous posters. McAvoy looks horrible, looks like his head was pasted on a childs body. Is it really that difficult to just have every1 stand next to each other for a photoshoot.

I was never a big fan of those style of posters. I wish they had them doing something than standing/walking..

Yahoo! Movies UK asked X-MEN: FIRST CLASS cast members James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Jason Flemyng, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Alex Gonzalez, Edi Gathegi, Zoe Kravitz, Lucas Till and Caleb Landry Jones which mutant power they would want in real life.

Nicholas Hoult (Hank McCoy/Beast)
– “The one I have in the film’s pretty cool. Even just to be able to have an opposable big toe and to be able to do things with your feet would be great. But this is a really difficult question. Obviously being invisible would be great. Flying would be great. But there are better ones, probably, than that. I’d like to be able to control people’s destinies… That kind of sounds like I want to be God, doesn’t it? I want to be God! There we go. I just spit that out and realised in hindsight that was a ridiculous thing to say! I’d quite like morphing – Mystique’s one – actually. That’s quite cool.”

Just caught Beast's character trailer. He's pretty much the character I'm most interested in at this point. How his blue Beast-form looks better than Kelsey's(who was great)

From the photos and clips we've seen I def. like the make up better in this film but I think it could use some small improvements, however none of us will really know until we see the film.
