Seeing both Beasts next to each other, it really heightens how unimaginative they were with X3 Beast.

I enjoyed Grammar...agreed he was one of the few bright spots in the film...

...I originally wasn't too big on Hoult's Beast, but its grown on me...

...I more happy that we're getting/got two takes of two interpretations of the character...

I just hope they don't do anything to his voice.

I like them both.
The XMFC Beast is about the best that the "cat" Beast can look, anything closer to the crap that's in the comics, and it would be laughed off the screen.
The X3 Beast is based upon the classic blue Beast, and I thought they did a good job with that. Maybe the hair could have been a little different to show off the pointed ears beneath, and I would have like to see the classic hair style, but the producers shot that down [looked too much like Wolverine!]. Grammer is completely covered in prosthetics, but he still show through.

Beast looks like a shoddy puppet in First Class, it's terrible. Needs to be fixed in a sequel.

While I prefer the First Class look both have flaws in their designs and have been poorly executed in terms of movement.

Hoult's first reveal as furry Beast in the hangar was laughably bad, I thought. They could have, at least, trimmed the protruding hair in the neck (and back of neck) area.

I think his look came about mostly because Vaughn didn't like how Beast looked in X3, he thought it looked more like hair than fur.

I actually prefer Hoult's Beast, now I didnt like X3, but Grammar's Beast was a shining light in it, BUT, he just looked like a blue hairy man for me, Hoult's looks like a BEAST. I preferred the fighting style of Hoult's when he was in action as well, Grammar's Beast constantly looked like he was on wires while fighting, Hoult's Beast seemed more natural and feral, which I loved. Hoult's Beast does look a bit off at times in FC, but overall I loved his look.

Kelsey Grammer I was skeptical about but he nailed it big time.

I think the make-up job on Hoult looks better, but Grammer totally embodies Beast's personality, so I had to go with him.

I was slightly disappointed by Grammer's Beast. They emphasiced Hank's intellectual side too much over his sense of humor. Beast has always been one of the funniest X-Men. Of course, since Morrison's run, he has been a bit more somber in comics as well.

It seems like they gave all of the humor to Wolverine, just like they gave him all of the leadership skills.

I like to think of Beast Prime as the less mutated version of the Feral Beast in First Class. Hank McCoy is a genius so I wager he has been working on trying to reverse the effects of the failed serum as much as possible hence the less feral look of Kelset Grammer's Beast.

P.S. Still quite disappointed that Beast can't be an Avenger because of that whole movie rights thing.

I think both captured Beast well at various points in the characters evolution. In FC I thought they captured his nerdiness but also his distain for his physical mutation.

X3 Beast was not bad for the mature and world weathered Hank. His encounter with Leech was kind of moving.

As for the look, First Class hands down. X3 was a little too Dr. Seuss for me.

Nicholas Hoult portrayed a much more complete character. Kelsey Grammer is almost doing an impersonation. Completely lacked the depth of Hoult's Beast.

I betcha if they continue with the X-Men movies in modern times they can change that and give him more depth. Don't blame Kelsey for what the writer(s) should have done. I think First Class opens up the door to better written movies for future post X3 movies to be better written.

i loved Kelsey as Beast...it was one of those inspired castings...like the minute you hear it you agree with it...like when Patrick Stewart was cast as Xavier.

I just didn't like the hands for feet on the Hoult version

I was watching the X3 on tv a few weeks ago and saw the scene where Beast calls Wolverine an animal and Wolverine say “Looks who talking”. I waited for Beast to say something smart back to him, being that he is smarter. But he didn’t and that felt weird.

in an extended cut of that scene, Beast actually growls at him, Which seemed way more out of character, so, at least they left that out of the final cut
