Star of The Road and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Kodi Smit-McPhee is joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse as German teleporter, and iconic team member, Nightcrawler. He's joining Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), and Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) as young actors to take on established X-Men characters.

Nightcrawler was aptly played by Alan Cumming in X2: X-Men United (2003). Of course, X-Men: Apocalypse will be set in the 1980's, as Charles Xavier is re-opening his school for gifted youngsters.

After a disappointing performance compared to the previous Days of Future Past FOX might be ready to mash the reset button, just like your little brother did when he was losing in Mario Kart 64.

The mediocre reception of the film coincides with the expiration of the contracts of Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult, all the biggest stars of of the franchise. The films' director Brian Singer has also departed the franchise for other projects, leaving the series in even greater flux.

If we're being honest, we wish that FOX would just admit defeat and sell off the rights so that the Marvel Cinematic Universe can fill that X-Men sized hole in it.

Man, blue balls spread pretty quickly in mutants.

The Rogue Cut, if you didn't know, is a re-imagining of X-Men: Days of Future Past with Rogue's storyline left in the final product. Unfortunately Singer and Fox decided to remove her plot from the theatrical release to save time. Now all you fans of the southern belle turned mutant, can see what appears to be a brand new story.

Last year when doing press for White House Down Magic Mike himself (Channing Tatum) talked about how much he'd love to play the card throwing mutant, and 90's X-Men favorite, Gambit. He even has the cajun accent down.

Well, in Empire Magazine published earlier this week, X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, said:

"I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum," Shuler Donner reveals. "That doesn't have to be a great big movie. It's a thief in New Orleans, it's a whole different story. He's on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He's such a sweetheart."
That's one step closer to this dream coming true. What do you think, would Tatum make a good Gambit?

I always thought Cyclops' father was a space pirate. Looks like Bryan Singer is doing something a little different and a little less cool.
