Nightcrawler Revealed In "X-Men: Apocalypse"

Actor "Kodi Smit-McPhee" as "Nightcrawler" revealed in "X-Men: Apocalypse" - the sequel to "X-Men: Days of Future Past", to also be directed by Bryan Singer with the film under 20th Century Fox. "X-Men: Apocalypse" will be based in the 80s (while "Days" was based in the 70s).

The last time we saw "Kurt Wagner" / "Nightcrawler" on thie big screen was in 2003's "X2", with the teleporting mutant played by Alan Cumming, and frankly a tad "older" in the part than I imagined. Personally I've always felt the "wonder" of the X-Men is lost on the silver screens with the mutants as grown "adults" … it might have worked in comicbooks, but on the big screen, they just seem like sad sods which nobody could really relate to, except fellow sad adult folks … the younger incarnation ala "X-Men First Class" could possibly capture said "wonder", which "The New Mutants" could somehow do in comicbooks, methinks.

Too bad the franchise comes to a close in "Apocalypse", but I would not be wholly surprised they will be rebooted somewhen in the near future, without a doubt.
