Nightcrawler is a character every X-Men fan loves. It was a little bit disappointing to see how they ditched the character after X2, but we’ll be getting reintroduced to our favorite acrobatic teleporter in 2016’s “X-Men: Apocalypse.”

So without further ado, I give you Kurt Wagner, aka Night crawler.

The first image came from the X-Men movies on twitter.

Fans are so far liking what they are seeing as a younger version of the character. Not the older version we saw in X2 portrayed (awesomely) by Alan Cumming.

I like the way that they have kept the colors of his original X-Men uniform with the clothing he has on in this promo shot. It also looks like they’ll be using a similar effect for his teleporting like from X2.

Basically my reaction when I saw it:

Please hold your applause.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” also features younger versions of Jean Grey, Cyclopes, Storm, and Archangel. Those characters will join the returning cast of the first two X-Men reboots, “First Class” and “Days of Future Past.”

As of right now there is no confirmation if Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role as Wolverine in the film. It hits theaters in May 2016.


What do you think? Did they get Nightcrawler's look right?
