First glimpse at Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse


Ever since Bryan Singer’s announcement of Kodi Smit-McPhee playing Nightcrawler in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film, fans have been wondering what he will look like. Singer finally unveiled the character via Twitter today, and I must say that it looks really good. Now this isn’t an actual image of Smit-McPhee in costume and makeup, but more of a concept design for the character. I’d say they’re on the right track.

He definitely has the younger look of Alan Cumming’s Nightcrawler from X-Men 2. My question is, will Kurt Wagner have the same German accent as his character carries? I guess we’ll have to just wait and see.

The casting lineup is insane with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult leading. Not to mention Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), Evan Peters (Quicksilver – rumored to return), Lucas Till (Havok), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey),  Ben Hardy (Archangel), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Olivia Munn (Psylocke) and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse).

What do you think of Nightcrawler’s new look? Let us know in the comments below.
