Bryan Singer has taking to Instagram with another exciting announcement about X-Men Apocalypse.
Kodi Smit-McPhee has been cast as the younger Kurt Wagner also known as the blue-skinned teleporting Nightcrawler. Smit-McPhee has previously appeared in Paranorman and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Smit-McPhee’s Nightcrawler will join other young X-Men Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm, played by Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp, respectively. Fitting, since the last time we saw Nightcrawler in X2: X-Men United, it was also alongside those three movie staple X-Men. Alan Cumming played Nightcrawler in that film.
Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Nightcrawler will poof into theaters in X-Men Apocalypse on May 27th, 2015.
