First Look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer tweeted a picture from the first day on set to give a first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young Kurt Wagner, or as he’s known in the Munich Circus, Zee Incredible Nightcrawler. Did you read that in his voice?

nightcrawler Much like Nightcrawler himself, the tweet disappeared in a flash. Luckily, millions of people had time to download it before it was gone, and now it’s here to stay.

What do you think? Will Smit-McPhee live up to Alan Cumming’s fantastic portrayal from X2? This teenage version of Nightcrawler really reminds me of the character from the grossly underrated cartoon X-Men: Evolution that followed the angsty high school versions of all our favourite mutants.


About Drew Comerford (151 Articles)
The youngest student to ever be accepted to MIT (7 years old) Drew was a certified child genius. Unfortunately his other organs, limbs...basically everything were nowhere near as powerful as his brain. Drew in a desperate attempt to match the power of his body to that of his mind started experimenting with different animal organs and appendages. Some worked out, and some...not so much. The team takes great pleasure in replacing Drew's parts (which he loses regularly in battle) with the most obscure and useless replacements they can find. Drew is not a fan of this ongoing tomfoolery.
