First Look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Bryan Singer X-Men: Apocalypse

Director Bryan Singer debuts first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as the teleporting mutant Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse to mark the beginning of the film’s production in Montreal.

Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler was previously played by Alan Cumming in X-2 and it’s tough to spot any significant differences from Kodi Smit-McPhee’s version of the character. This is probably because it appears to be a concept image and not Smit-McPhee in actual makeup. Although he looks like a dude from Avatar, I’m good. Check out the first glimpse of one of the new characters from X-Men: Apocalypse. (The Instagram image from Singer’s tweet is now gone.)
