Wha?? We thought Jake Gyllenhaal was Nightcrawler! LOLz!
X-Men: Apocalypse — the next chapter for the mutant heroes that takes place in the 80s — has already cast younger versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey.
Now they have a baby Nightcrawler as well!

Kodi Smit-McPhee, whom you may have seen in Let Me In or more recently Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, will be taking over the role!
Though we love Alan Cumming, we have to say this talented teen looks like perfect casting to us! We mean, he doesn't have blue fur, but apart from that, he's the spitting image of the lithe teleporter.
We wonder what his relationship will be to Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique — because in the comics, Nightcrawler is her son!
