X-Men: Apocalypse – Nightcrawler Revealed


20th Century Fox has revealed a motion poster featuring Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young Nightcrawler for next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Kodi Smit-McPhee will only be the second actor to play a live incarnation of the character.  Alan Cumming previously played an older modern-day Nightcrawler in the critically acclaimed X2: X-Men United (2003).

Writer Simon Kinberg and director Bryan Singer also shared photos of them on set.  From the pictures, I guess they’re reminding audiences that X-Men isn’t the only blockbuster franchise that 20th Century Fox owns.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a planned release date of May 27, 2016 and will be directed by Bryan Singer and written by Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris, and Michael Dougherty, and will star James McAvoy as Charles Xavier / Professor X, Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellan as Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkhölme, Nicholas Hout as Hank McCoy / Beast, Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver, Oscar Isaac as En Sabah Nur / Apocalypse, Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe / Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers / Cyclops, Rose Burne as Moira MacTaggert, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner / Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as Jubilation Lee, Ben Hardy as Warren Worthington III / Angel, Olivia Munn as Betsy Braddock / Psylocke, and Lucas Till as Alex Summers / Havok.
