Brian Singer is apparently considering a young crawler and gambit in the next x-men movie...

There's no casting yet. My reasoning is that Nightcrawler was roughly 35 when X2 occurred in 2003. If X-Men Apocalypse takes place in 1985, Nightcrawler would be 18. How old will Jaden be in 2016? Answer: 18. Perfect. Also, we know he can act, fight, and do acrobatic stunts from his work on Karate Kid.

Well,... fight and do acrobatic stunts at least.

And don't be too sure. I mean Scott is Alex Summers' younger brother in this movie verse but by what? 20 years? He's appears in the 80's in his late teens (at best) in Wolverine: Origins where Alex was early 20's in the 60's during X-Men: First Class. That's like .... quite the gap. Way more than 20 actually.

I think the point of DoFP is to reset a lot of these time/continuity issues so hopefully that's what's going on. And maybe we are seeing a set up for Apocalypse? Gambit/Nightcrawler ARE pretty important to those stories...

Ben Whishaw - he's graceful, dynamic, does a good Arial in Shakespeare's 'Tempest' - he's skilled in the chivalric romance that would do Kurt justice...plus he looks the part doesn't he? AND he's acted with Alan Cumming (who had the heart but not the physical presence of a true Nightcrawler).

Ben Whishaw!!!

Maybe if we ignore age continuity, he would work. I've never even heard of this guy though... How is his German accent?

I don't know the names of any actor's who are under 20. (Alas Bamfing-Bob, I haven't seen many movies since leaving my folk's house and their HBO back in 1996). But I can't imagine lil' Fresh Prince as Kurt Wagner...and how's his German?

I fucking hope Jaden Smith isn't cast. "Most Trees Are Blue Like Me." "How Can Mutants Be Real If Our Powers Aren't Real" NOPE

Personally if it were an Adult Nightcrawler go for either David Tennant or Tom Hiddleston

I don't know many teen actors that could do Nightcrawler, or they get actors who are much older to portray younger characters like how Andrew Garfield plays a Teen Spider-man even though he's in his 30s

Can't use Hiddleston, he's Loki. I mean you could... but you can't now. And Tennant... maybe.

I'd say go younger though.
In my opinion, the actor who plays Joffrey in Game of Thrones could easily pull it off...

I just started watching Game of Thrones, so I totally see this! It takes an awesome actor to really get people to hate you, so yeah. Do this. I'm tweeting Bryan Singer now.

I have unfortunate news that I just learned...

But being you just started the show... I can't tell you... :shocked not sure how to proceed here...

He's probably not going to do the part of Nightcrawler, let's just leave it at that. Though I think for enough money anyone could be persuaded.

Never thought of Kurt as a blond...but he could work...unfortunately he's just announced his retirement from acting.

Not a bad choice, some of Kurt's image induced forms were light brunette so him having blonde hair isn't too fair off. But the lad isn't planning on acting again.

Though I really think they should just put Make up on his face and hair and not bother doing the thing that they did with Alan Cummings where they painted his entire body I mean yeah it looks nice but that really is time consuming and costs more and is surely uncomfortable. Just put him in a similar costume to his comic version and you're sorted.

I think a certain guarantee of box-office $$ and sequel $$ could persuade even the thriftiest, most philosophical young actor.

Consider this: Nightcrawler raised in the circus, fun costume, swashbuckler, the whole nine yards. Then, something terrible happens and he finds refuge in the Catholic church. Marks his body, becomes melancholy, etc. I say, stick to classic Nightcrawler for X-Men Apocolypse. And as far as Gleeson is concerned, I'd like him to play it, but if he has retired, then there will be someone else...

Should hire me to be Nightcrawler, I'd play him amazingly I can do a German Accent too. And as an added bonus to being hired I'd help them with their script so fans wouldn't get ticked off.

He'll be 17 in 2016 so yeah it could work.

Not too familiar with him though.

I like Chandler Riggs! He's not as athletic as some other choices, but he has proven to be a great dramatic actor with the talent of comic relief. How about the accent? You think he's spent enough time around Andrew Lincoln to get a European accent down?

:shifty Andrew Lincoln is British... not so much with the German accent learning there. Hehehe Chandler Riggs. Carl as Nightcrawler is just amusing in my head, but I could see the kid pulling something like that off. I would tend to say, however, that he's going to be busy for the next few years, since The Walking Dead isn't going anywhere.

Joffrey. HAHAHAHAA. *cough* Well...

A thought...

If this is AoA...then Kurt was raised by his mum. He doesn't NEED a German accent.
