Director Bryan Singer shared the first photo of Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse. Singer later removed the photo, leaving only a tweet of its existence. “First day on set! Here is @kodismitmcpheee as #Nightcrawler. Catch him before he’s gone…” The 18-year-old Aussie Smit-McPhee also posted a photo of himself as Nightcrawler, but like Singer removed it as a way of teasing Nightcrawler’s mutant ability to teleport.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
