James McAvoy (Seemingly) Confirms Alan Cumming's Return For X-MEN: DOFP

In an interview with Heat Radio, the Scottish actor appears to have let slip that Alan Cumming - who played Nightcrawler in Bryan Singer's second X-Men flick - would be reprising the role for X-Men: Days Of Future Past..

James McAvoy may not have found the time to read the script for X-Men: Days Of Future Past yet, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been privy to some inside information courtesy of director Bryan Singer. In a recent radio interview, McAvoy appears to confirm that Alan Cumming will be back along with the rest of the returning cast to once again play fan-favorite mutant teleporter Nightcrawler.

"It’s huge, the cast is huge. You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender,] Nicholas Hoult will be back and he’s just blossoming massively over [in america]. Patrick Stewart, Ian Mckellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned – I don’t know if that’s happening – “Huge” Jackman is coming by. He’s massive, 7’5″ and muscle-ly.”

The X-Men stuff comes in around 4:44

Seems pretty cut and dry, but of course until we get official confirmation - usually coming in the form of a Tweet from Singer - we'll leave a question mark over it. How would you feel about Cumming joining the already jam-packed cast?
