Kodi Smit-McPhee Cast as Nightcrawler

18 February 2015 3:01 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

X-Men Apocalypse added a new cast member and this time it's for fan favorite, Nightcrawler!

The last time we saw Kurt Wagner he was teleporting around with the X-Men in X2.  Now, we'll get to see the blue mutant again in X-Men Apocalypse.  Director Bryan Singer recently announced that Kodi Smit-McPhee will be playing as Nightcrawler when the movie releases May 27, 2016.

Smit-McPhee is best known for his work opposite Viggo Mortensen in the post-apocalyptic dramatic thriller, The Road.  More recently, though, he played Alexander in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

It's apparent that, in his young career, he's no stranger to big budget pictures.  Whether or not he can pull of Nightcrawler, remains to be seen.  However, it does bring to mind the awkward question that Fox continues to avoid.  Historically, it's already been established in the comics and cartoons that Nightcrawler's mother is Mystique, currently played by Jennifer Lawrence. »

Horror / Sci-Fi Round-Up: Nightcrawler Cast for X-Men: Apocalypse, New Fright Rags Shirts, The Pyramid Blu-ray / DVD Release Details

18 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Welcome to another horror/sci-fi round-up! We have news on who will play the marvelous mutant Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse, a look at four new fright-styled T-shirts from Fright Rags (including an ’80's-esque Freddy Krueger), and home media release details for 20th Century Fox's The Pyramid.

Nightcrawler: He can teleport with his unique dimension-hopping ability, he's extremely agile, he knows how to handle a saber with expert ease, and he at times has a gleeful sense of humor. The X-Men mutant Nightcrawler has many admirable traits and was memorably portrayed by Alan Cumming in Bryan Singer's X2. With Singer back behind the camera for X-Men: Apocalypse, a film that will introduce more mutants to the growing ranks of the X-Mansion, it's been revealed by the director on his Instagram page that Kodi Smit-McPhee will play a young Nightcrawler.

Daniel Cudmore to be Replaced as Colossus in Deadpool

18 February 2015 3:23 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently revealed that the Colossus character will appear in the upcoming "Deadpool" film. It was immediately assumed that actor Daniel Cudmore, who played the superhero in "X2: X-Men United," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" would be reprising his role. But now comes word that the part is being recast. "Thanks everyone for all the support for me to reprise the role of Colossus in 'Deadpool,' but unfortunately it won't be happening for me," Cudmore wrote on Twitter. "I've had a blast playing such an awesome character over the years! 'Deadpool' will be kick-ass with [director] Tim Miller and [Ryan] Reynolds." It's not clear why Cudmore is being replaced, but it's possible that 20th Century Fox is looking for a younger actor. "Deadpool" is set to hit theaters on February 12th, 2016. »

Kodi Smit-McPhee to Play Young Nightcrawler in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

17 February 2015 10:24 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Tye Sheridan were cast as young versions of Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops respectively, we didn't think X-Men: Apocalypse would have many more younger versions of familiar mutants joining up with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters from X-Men: Days of Future Past. But director Bryan Singer added one more young mutant to the mix as he revealed that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Let Me In star Kodi Smit-McPhee will play Nightcrawler, the blue-skinned, teleporting mutant from X2: X-Men United. Here's the update that director Bryan Singer posted on Instagram: Excited to welcome @kodismitmcphee to the cast of #XmenApocalypse as young #Nightcrawler. @alexvaughanphoto A photo posted by Bryan Singer (@bryanjaysinger) on Feb 17, 2015 at 8:21pm Pst Nightcrawler has always been a fan favorite mutant, and Singer even mentioned that he wanted to figure out how »

Kodi Smit-McPhee Joins X-Men: Apocalypse As Young Nightcrawler

17 February 2015 8:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fan-favorite teleporting mutant Nightcrawler was a scene stealer in 2003’s X2: X-Men United, but has remained absent from the franchise ever since. Thankfully, that’s about to change, as Bryan Singer has announced that a young version of the character will be in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse and that he’ll be played by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Let Me In actor Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Singer made the announcement via Instagram, saying simply that he’s excited to welcome Smit-McPhee to the film. How big the role is or what it might entail remains a mystery, but I imagine it will be a relatively small part, and perhaps similar to Evan Peters’ role as Quicksilver in last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past

That is, of course, conjecture on my part, and based solely on who else Singer has managed to wrangle together for this film. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Gets Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

17 February 2015 8:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some late night casting news has just broke courtesy of Bryan Singer. The director welcomed young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee to the X-Men: Apocalypse cast courtesy of his personal Instagram. Kodi Smit-McPhee is confirmed to be taking on the role of Kurt Wagner, otherwise known as Nightcrawler, in this latest Mutant adventure.

Introduced in Giant-Size X-Men #1 way back in 1975, Nightcrawler has superhuman agility, can teleport, and is endowed with adhesive hands and feet. His physical appearance includes dark blue skin which allows him to become nearly invisible in shadows, two-toed feet and three-fingered hands, yellow eyes, pointed ears and a prehensile tail. In Nightcrawler's earlier comic book appearances he is seen as a happy-go-lucky practical joker, and is a fan of swashbuckling adventures. Nightcrawler is also a Catholic, and while this is not emphasized as much in his earlier comic book appearances, in later depictions Nightcrawler is more vocal about his faith. »

Nightcrawler Cast in 'X-Men: Apocalypse', Plus Concept Art and Colossus to be Recast in 'Deadpool'

17 February 2015 7:53 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Bryan Singer has announced on his Instagram account that Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) has joined the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse and will play a young Nightcrawler, the character made popular in the franchise's second feature, X2: X-Men United as played by Alan Cumming, particularly in that fantastic opening sequence. Meanwhile, in somewhat similar X-Men related news, Daniel Cudmore who played the mutant Colossus in X2, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class tweeted out that he will not be playing the character in the new Deadpool movie. It was made known recently that the Colossus character will be featured in the film, but as far as who will replace Cudmore there are no details available just yet, or if the character will appear in Apocalypse...

Fox Reportedly Seeking A New Colossus

17 February 2015 4:22 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though Daniel Cudmore has played the character since 2003’s X2, it would appear that Fox is going in a new direction for steely X-Men hero Colossus in Deadpool. The actor hit Twitter to announce the decision (as reported by Coming Soon) today.In a report about Gina Carano joining the cast of the new movie about the Merc with a Mouth, it was also revealed that Colossus would be cropping up in the film, which led to speculation that Cudmore could be back, having most recently appeared in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Cudmore himself, however, has appeared to confirm that he’ll be replaced, at least for Deadpool. “Thanks everyone for all the support for me to reprise the role of ‪Colossus in Deadpool but unfortunately it won't be happening for me,” he said. “I've had a blast playing such an awesome character over the years! ‪Deadpool will be »

Deadpool Is Recasting This Key X-Men Character

17 February 2015 1:48 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When the Deadpool script leaked out a few years back, one detail that wound up getting a lot of attention was the fact that the story included a role for the Russian mutant known as Colossus. As a result of this, many people just assumed that this would mean that Daniel Cudmore would eventually wind up being cast in the film, as he played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and, most recently, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Sadly, however, it appears that Cudmore actually won't be appearing in the new X-Men universe film, and instead it appears that the role is going to be recast. This sad bit of news actually comes from Daniel Cudmore himself, who took to his Twitter today to announce that he would not be starring in director Tim Miller's Deadpool movie, which is set to star Ryan Reynolds in the »

Daniel Cudmore Will Not Play Metal Mutant Colossus in 'Deadpool'

17 February 2015 1:47 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just last week, we learned that Mma fighter turned actress Gina Carano would join Ryan Reynolds for the anticipated big screen adaptation of Deadpool. At the same time, it was reported that the metal mutant Colossus would also be involved in the X-Men spin-off, but we didn't know if franchise star Daniel Cudmore, who played the character in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, would be back to play the character. Now the actor himself has taken to Twitter to clarify that he will not be part of Deadpool, meaning a new actor will be cast as the strong, Russian mutant. Read on! Here's Daniel Cudmore's updates on Twitter about not playing Colossus in Deadpool: Thanks everyone for all the support for me 2 reprise the role of #Colossus in #Deadpool but unfortunately it won't be happening for me con't— daniel cudmore »

'Deadpool' Will Recast 'X-Men' Character Colossus

17 February 2015 12:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A report surfaced last week that revealed the popular X-Men character Colossus will be featured in 20th Century Fox's comic book adaptation Deadpool. No details were given as to how he fits into the story, or if Daniel Cudmore, who played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, will reprise his role. The actor revealed on his Twitter page last week that he couldn't comment on his involvement in Deadpool, but today, the actor revealed that he will not star in the superhero spinoff.

Of course, 20th Century Fox still hasn't confirmed that Colossus is even part of Deadpool yet, but the fact that the actor wouldn't comment on Friday before releasing a statement today likely means that the character will be involved. A casting call released yesterday described two male characters, dubbed "Ridge" and "Albert" as "Big, muscular and dangerous, »

Daniel Cudmore Out As Colossus For Deadpool Movie

17 February 2015 11:48 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

When Colossus appeared in X2 and X-Men Days of Future Past, the role was being played by Daniel Cudmore. It wasn’t a big part, and was light on dialogue, but Cudmore seemed to be comfortably part of the family.

Well, apparently not. Though everybody is expecting Colossus to appear in the new Deadpool movie – he was certainly in multiple drafts of the screenplay – Cudmore has broken the unfortunate news that this time, he won’t have the part.

Here are his tweets on the matter. Poor chap.

Thanks everyone for all the support for me 2 reprise the role of #Colossus in #Deadpool but unfortunately it won't be happening for me con't

Daniel Cudmore Will Not Be Reprising Colossus In Deadpool; Role Set To Be Recast

17 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  Last week, alongside the announcement that Gina Carano (Fast and Furious 6) would be joining Ryan Reynolds (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) in Fox's Deadpool, it was revealed that Colossus would also be featuring in the 2016 film, with rumors circulating that Daniel Cudmore, who has played Peter Rasputin a.k.a. Colossus in three X-Men films, including last year's blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, would be reprising the role for the highly ancipated film. However, it seems as though, those rumors may have been unfounded as Cudmore himself has revealed via Twitter that Fox has decided to go in a different direction and that he will not be returning to the role. He has also seemingly said farewell to the part which began his film career in 2003's X2.
