Alan Cumming – Nightcrawler

6. Alan Cumming – Nightcrawler

A former performer of the Munich circus, Kurt Wagner appears only in X2, but Cumming’s performance is so terrific and memorable that Nightcrawler has become a favorite for fans of the franchise.  His German accent already makes him stand out among the others, but his bible-quoting, devout faith and teleportation mutation make him memorable.  Nightcrawler completely owns his introduction at the start of X2 with an extended sequence featuring the teleporter’s assassination attempt on the President’s life.  Rumors of Nightcrawler appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse continue to perpetuate, but will it be Cumming or a recast this time around?
