I’ve been watching the first teaser for X-Men 3 over on the Apple site and it looks quite good. How well the thing works without Bryan Singer (he’s working on Superman Returns instead) remains to be seen, but all the good characters are returning and anyone who knows anything about the comic storyline will understand the cool Phoenix storyline that we have to look forward to so it bodes well. The thing that really makes me laugh is Kelsey Grammer as Beast which, although very cool because he definitely has the personality down, just looks like someone took Frasier and painted him blue.
Still, I’m sure it’ll get some CGI augmentation and I’m intrigued to see Vinnie Jones as the gigantic Juggernaut. I just hope this one can stand up to the high standards that Singer set with X-Men 2.
