Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs

Wondering who that blue fellow was in my Avengers line up? It was (the) Beast, Dr Henry McCoy (also called "Hank", because everyone named Henry in a Marvel comic is called Hank 98% of the time, which was somewhat confusing for the young 'Splurge), and everyone will know him next year because of this:

Oh my stars and garters!

Finally! An X-Men film where I have some interest in one of the characters!


  1. Wow. Is that really Kelsey Grammer under all that makeup?

    Of course, Bryan Singer's not directing, so I'm not looking forward to it as much as I would otherwise. I was pleasantly surprised by how good X2 was.

  2. Yes, I'm not sure of Ratner's credentials; he did Rush Hour, I think, which is pretty good, but miles away from what Singer was doing with the X-Men.

    They're talking about this being the last one, it seems, with a Wolverine solo movie to follow.

    Oh and that is Grammer under there, yeah. From all accounts, he's really been getting into the role, which is not something I expected, but it bodes well.
