The cast of Bryan Singer‘s forthcoming Marvel movie sequel X-Men: Apocalypse continues to grow in size and talent as Kodi Smit-McPhee has signed on to play the heroic mutant Nightcrawler in 20th Century Fox’s summer 2016 tentpole blockbuster release.

Best known for his performances in The Road and last year’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the Australian actor joins a massive ensemble cast that also recently added Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Scott Summers/Cyclops, and Alexandra Shipp (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel), as well as Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) as the titular villain.

Singer announced Smit-McPhee’s casting on his Instagram.

Since Apocalypse is supposed to take place sometime in the 1980s, the addition of Nightcrawler to the roster would indicate that Singer is continuing to break from the continuity established during the first two X-Men movies he directed, as the character did not meet Marvel’s mighty mutants on screen until 2003’s X2: X-Men United. The events of last year’s Days of Future Past created a rebooted timeline that undid the follies brought about by certain past sequels in which Singer had no involvement, so anything is possible at this juncture.

Co-starring Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, and many more who have yet to progress beyond rumors, X-Men: Apocalypse will bring mutant mayhem galore to theaters around the world on May 27, 2016.

    Works.

    He is a talented young actor and a rising star, but I shudder think what type of “special favors” he had to do for Bryan Singer on the casting couch in order to land the part.
