The camera just started rolling for the production of the next X-Men Movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Bryan Singer is more than excited to share things from the set but one stood amongst the other, the first look on Kodi Smit-McPhee as the Mutant Teleporter Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler. See the photo after the jump.
Nightcrawler became an instant hit ever since his debut on the franchise in X2:X-Men United with the actor Alan Cumming. But due to some internal problems, Cumming didn't return in Last Stand and Kurt's lovable character is shelved until they decide to include him once again in X-Men Apocalypse. But of course this is the 80's so Cumming can't play Kurt so instead a younger actor is chosen in Kodi Smit-Mcphee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
I'm so happy with this first reveal. Being one of the most agile X-Men, we expect that Nightcrawler will be getting some awesome fight scenes. That is what makes him an instant favorite back in X2. So I hope we get the same amount of action for him. Let's hope for the best.
Coming in Summer 2016 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed through Warner Bros. Pictures.
