First look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as X-Men: Apocalypse's Nightcrawler

19 hours ago

X-Men: Apocalypse is over a year from landing in theatres, but we’re getting our first tease of Kodi Smit-McPheeas the young Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler.

Nightcrawler was first portrayed on big screens by Alan Cumming in the original X-Men series.  Now, Smit-McPhee is taking on the challenge of playing the mutant with teleportation abilities, superhuman agility, and adhesive hands and feet.  In the comics, Nightcrawler is a practical joker with pointed ears and a tail.  We're expecting much of the same character trait's in Bryan Singer's movie.

The Nightcrawler sneak peek comes on the heels of some X-Men: Apocalypse casting news earlier this month.  It was announced that Olivia Munn (Mortdecai) and Ben Hardy (“Eastenders”) were joining the cast as Psylocke and Angel.

All your favourite mutants are also back for another ride, including James McAvoy, Micahel Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, and Nicholas Hoult, with Oscar Isaac playing Apocalypse. »

Quiz: How well do you know the stars of The Avengers: Age of Ultron?

20 hours ago

Collectively, they’re the Avengers- the saviours of the universe, combatants for justice who are as quick to take down an enemy as they are to share a quip about a fellow team member (we're looking at you, Tony Stark). 

As we prepare to enter into battle with the old gang – Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Thor – in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’re putting you to the test to see how well you know their alter egos, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johnasson, Chris EvansMark RuffaloJeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth.  With two new recruits along for the ride in the form of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), The Avengers: Age of Ultron promises to be one non-stop thrill ride as the team battles their new enemy, Ultron (James Spader) in Joss Whedon's latest film.

Just how well do you know the Avengers crew? »
