Kodi Smit-McPhee Joins X-MEN: APOCALYPSE As 'Nightcrawler'
Fuzzy elf fans will be pleased to hear than for the first time since X-Men 2, we'll be seeing Kurt Wagner in an X-movie. Director Bryan Singer just announced that the younger Nightcrawler will be played by The Road's Kodi Smit-McPhee in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Here's some exciting casting news to wind down your Tuesday evening with. Bryan Singer has announced via Instagram that Kodi Smit-McPhee has joined the already very impressive cast of X-Men: Apocalypse as a younger version of fan-favourite mutant teleporter, Nightcrawler. The character was last seen in the second X-Men movie played by Alan Cumming, and we all wondered if we'd every see the "Fuzzy Elf" return to the franchise. Smit-McPhee was most recently seen in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but his best performance was arguably in the bleak (but brilliant) adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse also stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). The movie reportedly starts shooting this summer and will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
