Mutant mania

USA Today has revealed the first image of Kelsey Grammer as the blue-furred Beast in “X-Men 3.”

For those not familiar with the comic book, Beast—despite his ferocious appearance—is actually Dr. Hank McCoy, a brilliant scientist with an over-the-top egghead vocabulary, not to mention super strength and amazing agility.

Grammer has the absolute perfect voice for the part, and now I have to say that I’m pretty pleased with the look as well.

Check out USA Today’s X-Men 3 preview for some other images from the movie, including a first look at Ben Foster as Angel.

The movie, which doesn’t come out until May, is already getting a lot of bad buzz on the Internet thanks to many changes to the behind the scenes crew—namely new director Brett Ratner. But I’m still holding out hope that it will be good.

UPDATE: The first trailer for "X-Men 3" was posted on Apple's Quicktime site at 8 p.m.
