First look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

There has been official confirmation recently that Ben Hardy (EastEnders) will be playing Angel in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse – as well as news that Olivia Munn (Mortdecai) will take on Psylocke – but now there is some more artwork to enjoy, this time of Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) as the young Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner), the teleporting superhero first played on the big screen by Alan Cumming in X-2 (2003).

With a script from X-Men: Days Of Future Past's (2014) Simon Kinberg plus Singer stalwarts Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris (X-Men 2), X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the 1980s and finds Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) facing off against massively powerful mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) alongside younger versions of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Scott 'Cyclops' Summers (Tye Sheridan), Ororo 'Storm' Munroe (Alexandra Shipp), and Jubilee (Lana Condor).

Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class) is back as Moira MacTaggert, and there will be appearances from Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and, reportedly, the older Magneto, played as usual by Ian McKellen.

X-Men: Apocalypse is due out on 19 May 2016.
