Bryan Singer has been revealing information about X-Men: Apocalypse via his social media accounts, including a mysterious bit of concept art, some of the locations he’s been scouting, and the news that Sophie Turner will play Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp will play Storm, and Tye Sheridan will play Cyclops. About an hour ago, he revealed another castmember for the younger version of Nightcrawler. Alan Cumming will now be replaced by a guy with a name just as able to give us the silly giggles: Kodi Smit-McPhee.


You may recognize this 18-year-old walleyed Australian from movies including The Road and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I mean, you should remember him. How many people look like him and are named Kodi Smit-McPhee? At most, like, three or four.
