Nightcrawler for Days of Future Past?

Professor X reveals!

We have got a lot of new cast members in the past few weeks for the X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men Days of Future Past. With the recents confirmation of Halle Berry’s Storm who else remains? Well it looks like James McAvoy (Professor X) might have beat director Bryan SInger to his casting tweets. Alan Cumming will return as Nightcrawler. In a recent interview with Heat Radio McAvoy said the following:

You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender,] Nicholas Hoult will be back, and he's just blossoming massively over [in America], Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned - I don't know if that's happening - Huge Jackman is coming by, he's massive, 7'5″ and muscly”.


It’s not official, but why we would he mention Alan Cumming if it weren’t true?


The tweet will probably arrive today to tomorrow. 


X-Men Days of Future Past features (officially) James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman,Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Halle Berry.

 Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler was my favorite part about the Singer Xmen. I think I'm getting kinda excited about this finally. Just hope it lives up to the Avengers level of awesomeness or better. Hope singer has taken a lot of notes from these recent comic book movies!! 

But ya.... More Nightcrawler on the big screen is always a good thing baby!

 violator, i hear you brother, that's cool if true. i also liked him in X-2, i thought he made the movie better. i hope it's true and yes this needs to be really impressive and  nothing short of great.  skip the drama with all the characters in this, a semi- good plot  not dumb or boring and with fucking loads of action and eye candy just incase the lot does suck...

Great character and AC nailed it; hopefully he is returning.

OMG, yes please!  Him not being in X3 was one of the many reasons that movie dudded.

AC was my favorite part of X2 as well.  It would be a shame if they didn't bring him back out of all the people they decide to bring back.

So is Daniel Cudmore in as Colossus?

I remember reading the early 80s X-men and loved the trio of Colossus-Wolverine-Nightcrawler. Would be fun to see all three team up together.

Yeah, I think Colossus is probably the only team member not in it yet.

Wait, there is also Angel played by Ben Foster. And if they want to go villain side they could get Toad, your choice of two Sabertooths, and hel, maybe Blob, too.

What about Famke Jannsen (Jean Grey) & James Marsden (Cyclops) & Shawn Ashmore (Iceman)?

DarthBob 3/13/2013 8:24:12 AM

Who's playing Jubilee?

ElBaz13 3/13/2013 8:33:20 AM

Shawn Ashmore is in. Singer tweeted this about a month ago to announce Iceman (Ashmore), Rogue (Paquin) and Kitty (Page).  He said in his tweet "thank you Brett Ratner for keeping them alive". I'm assuming it was a jab at killing off Cyclops and Jean. So not sure they will be in.

Nightcrawler only seems to be a rumour and looks like debunked by Bleeding Cool already. No word on Colossus (Cudmore), Angel (Foster) or Beast (Grammer).

Is it me or should Singer split this into two movies? With this huge cast and big storyline, the last thing I was is 1 line by 1 character because of time constraints. Since it's the in-thing to split movies in two now, why not?
