Director Bryan Singe revealed on Instagram last night that the character Nightcrawler will be played by Kodi Smit-McPhee in the upcoming ‘X-Men: Acocalypse’ movie.
Nightcrawler was first portrayed in the movies in ‘X2: X-Men United’ by Alan Cumming but since then, he has not made an appearance. Nightcrawler’s comic book mother, Mystique, is played by Jennifer Lawrence who is confirmed for the film. However, his father is not appearing as of yet because we haven’t received any casting news that Jason Flemyng will be appearing as Azazel.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ comes to theaters on May 27, 2016 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Channing Tatum, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ian McKellen. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
