Yeah, I've been amazed just how much he's been showing. After the first couple I figured we'd be getting a few little vague pics of sets and props, and maybe some BTS shots of the actors, I did not expect him to tweets pics of them actually shooting scenes.

He sure as hell isn't JJ Abrams, that's for sure.

Lucas Till, AKA Havok, was spotted on the DOFP set.

Yeah, I'm really thinking now that Dinklage is Larry Trask given the character's connection to both Pietro and Alex. Or a tweaked version of both Trasks?

I know what Kelsey fans are going to say...but I absolutely love the redesigned makeup looks like on Hoult.

Yeah, that's a much better Beast design I think. Third time's the charm indeed. Not that I had a major problem with the previous ones, but the FC appliance looked good from a design standpoint, but it was pretty obvious that the actor was struggling with being able to act through it.

One thing that we should however keep in mind is that while it does look like they've gone *very* blue this time around, these are just amateur snaps taken in natural light. So it may look quite a bit different on film.

I still think the Kelsey Grammar version was the best-looking Beast. This one is definitely better than FC, but I'm not sure how I feel about the goatee.

Yeah, Grammar's version was the best. This version I actually don't think is as good as the FC version. That one wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible. This one looks like someone was trying out kind of lame werewolf makeup and ended up painting it blue.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

I saw (deep breath) X-Men Origins: Wolverine for the first time yesterday. Ouch. Regardless of all the continuity/adaptation issues, it just felt like a really cheap film. And very badly acted, the tone was set straight off when Wolverine's Mother reacts to the death of her husband and her lover plus her son growing claws by going "What are you?" with all the emotion of a bored newsreader looking at an Autocue.

And what was going on with Jackman's hair? No attempt at the "Wolverine" cut, instead it just looked... well like he was worth it.

I've not seen First Class yet, but I can't see any way either it or the forthcoming film could be worse. Hell, even the poor old The Wolverine (which people only seem to be excited about as an extended trailer for Days of Future Past) will have to try really hard to be as poor.

And I speak as someone with the sad, lonely taste of actually quite liking the third one. Or at least, I put it on the same level as the first (both harmless fun, both haven't aged very well compared to the rush of big budget superhero films we've had in the years since), and certainly think it's a better movie than the Superman film Singer went to make instead.

At the moment, at least until I sit down and watch First Class at some point over the next week, I think the second one is still the only flat out brilliant X-Men film, none of the others have really come close (despite, as said, still having a fondness the two round it).

All of the 'Beast' designs in the movies so far have looked too much like 'a dude coloured blue with some extra hair'. They need to do more than that and go to town with the prosthetic.

I really like this render, though I'd give him some underwear...

He really should be a Gollum-esque CGI performance. They make him look human half the time anyways, may as well give his 'beast mode' some umph.

Looks a bit like the Universal Wolfman to me.

Or if it's the 1970s, maybe Wolfman Jack....
