First Look: ‘X-Men 3’ Photos (UPDATED)

USA Today has the first official photos from X-Men 3.

We get to see what the Beast will look like and I’m still trying to come with grips with the fact that the annoying actor from Six Feet Under playing Angel.

The teaser is live!

UPDATE: How could we forget, there was an interview to go along with the pics

Man, I hope this doesn’t suck.


  1. You know, Frasier doesn’t look half bad…

  2. The teaster debuts on today.

    We’ll see.

    I remember being really, really pumped after the X2 teaser.

    We’ll double see.

  3. Ben Foster also played the retarded kid in Freaks and Geeks. I think he’s probably a good actor, so I wouldn’t worry about him.

    I’m glad the thing Halle Berry is focusing on is her hair. That’s what I was worried about.

    It’s a big hill to get over Brett Ratner.


    Ben Foster, YEY.

    my favorite thing ever is having OLIVIA WILLIAMS from Rushmore as Moira. How’s that pronounced, anyway? Is it MOY-RAH or MAURA?

  5. I agree on olivia williams – and I believe its Moy-rah, at least that’s how i pronounce it – and its confirmed here:

  6. Trailer thoughts:

    – Beast looks fine in motion.

    – The “war” sets look kinda cheap.

    – It doesn’t seem to have the inherent grandiosity that Singer brings to his work.

    – I’m still more concerned with the awful spoilers I read a while back.

    – Dumb that there is no iPod version like they had with SUPERMAN RETURNS.

  7. Surprise! This movie actually looks pretty good. You could tell me that Singer directed the movie, and from this teaser, I’d believe you.

  8. OMG OMG – Steve is right, this actually looked good.

    Conor you’re right, Beast looked pretty good. I don’t mind the “War” set that much, don’t know the context.

    I didn’t really feel any less grandiosity from Singer’s trailers.

    What were the spoilers you read? Did I read them? do I want to know them?

    Things I noticed after watching it on freeze frame:
    – Colossus in an Ultimate X-Men style uniform
    – Vinnie Jones as Juggernaught? Not sure I dig the costume, but I don’t know how it can exist in real life and not look dumb
    – Jean Grey wearing red and aligned with Magneto?

    This teaser did the job, I’m psyched for this underdog of a movie now after Singer left.

    Looks like they’re taking the Raimi Spider-Man approach of borrowing from the original text but modifying it (i.e. Mary Jane thrown off the bridge), but I’m ok with that.

    Bold prediction? Prof. X dies.

  9. I think you’ve read the same spoilers.

    I seem to recall us talking about it.

  10. i must have purged them from my memory

    this makes me want to watch X1 and X2

  11. I was going to give you a hint, but I decided against it.

  12. good idea

  13. I am a benevolent god.

  14. They’re clearly attending Prof. X’s funeral. Whether he comes back, that’s a different story.

    Juggie’s costume….not so much. Why the belly shirt and weird rubber abs?

    I’m curious to see how they do it, and I wish I knew it was going to be good, but in my heart, I know that I don’t like how this guy directs a movie.

    That’s a much more mature response than “That guy sucks!” I’m trying.

  15. Professor X is not the only person missing from that funeral scene.

    I’m just sayin’…

  16. Is Jean Grey in the scene? I have to watch again- it could be her funeral…

    but i think its Prof X – i wonder if they’re going to make Juggernaut and Prof X related

  17. Seems to me that there are a few key X-people missing from that funeral scene.

  18. Okay, I’ve said too much. I’ll stop.


  20. “At one point, as professor X, my powers ripped jean grey’s clothes off. She tried to cover up, but it was too late. I’d see everything.”

    (I saw it done on Fark too, but I thought of it before I saw them write it, so I’m still taking credit for it.)

  21. still funny

  22. I believe the “war” sets might actually be a Danger Room scene. Would make sense considering how disheveled and perhaps even disinterested Wolverine looks, don’t it?

  23. I actually thought it might be the Danger Room, but I’ve also heard others speculate that they turn San Francisco into a warzone. Who knows?

    Hopefully it’s the DM, that would assuage my fears.

  24. haven’t they been teasing the danger room for this movie after it got scrapped from X2?

  25. Doesn’t Logan’s hair look a little more svelte?

  26. It certainly does.

  27. Well, I’d like to mention a few things.

    These are minor/major spoilers. You’ve been warned.

    * Juggernaut is, last I heard, going to be Xavier’s half-brother.
    * Nightcrawler is not going to make an appearance.
    * The story is based upon the first arc of Astonishing X-Men, at least in the fact that a mutant “cure” is developed.
    * At least two X-Men have been harmed in the making of this film.
