    Think we could maybe get the eyes right this movie?  And I sincerely hope he can do a decent accent.

  2. Dupree says:

    Deadpool and Fantomex, please!  Uncanny X-Force + Apocalypse = wins

    Good for the kid but frankly Alan Cumming looks pretty much the same as he always has so he could have still played the character.

  4. Dr_Daggz says:

    His eyes are far apart.

  5. Elric says:

    I love Nightcrawler, so I’m happy that he’ll return.

    But please………. why of all people THIS KID..? He doesn’t look Nightcrawler. At all. The make-up, CGI-and-special-effects-team got their work cut out for them.

    Yuck.

      Yeah, this kid isn’t blue and I doubt he even has a tail. And don’t get me started on how many toes he has!

    Gambit, for the love of your god, give us GAMBIT!
