[Movies] James McAvoy Says Nightcrawler Will Be in X-Men: Days of Future Past Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.12.2013
He may have inadvertently dropped a scoop...
James McAvoy has suggested that Nightcrawler will be back in X-Men: Days of Future Past. McAvoy was speaking with Heat Radio and listed X2 co-star Alan Cumming, who played Nightcrawler, among a list of people involved with the film.
McAvoy said, "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 muscle-y."
It is worth noting that his information appears to be not straight from the source, as Dinklage has already been confirmed as being involved. Jason Flemyng, who played Azazel (Nightcrawler's father) in First Class, has said that Azazel is unlikely to appear in the new film, which opens on July 18th, 2014.
