This Is Nightcrawler In X-Men Apocalypse

Nightcrawler is a tough character to get right on the big screen, especially when it’s a live-action film. He’s one of those guys that is almost too unreal to convincingly make the transition from comic to silver screen. I thought they did pretty well with the first Nightcrawler, but you know how it goes, and reboots are a dime a dozen.


The new character will be played by 18-year-old Australian Smit McPhee and his Nightcrawler character looks a tad different from the one pictured above. They went a bit more ‘teen angst’ with the new Nightcrawler, and while I don’t hate it I’m not jumping through the roof for it.


X-Men: Apocalypse is due to hit theaters on May 27, 2016. They’ve done remarkably well with the series so I’m confident that this one will be a hit as well. What do you think about the new Nightcrawler?
