Bryan Singer Wants Gambit & Nightcrawler in 'X-Men: Apocalypse': "As for the one cool X-Men who did get a good translation into live-action, Nightcrawler, the lovable teleporter stole the screen in X-Men 2 when played by Alan Cumming only to never return again. Don’t be surprised to see a younger version of him, alongside Gambit, in Apocalypse. The real question is who will play them. If X-Men: Apocalypse takes place in the ’80s, that’s not far off from where X-Men Origins: Wolverine took place so Taylor Kitsch – who expressed interested in returning to the character – could come back. But then again, producer Lauren Shuler Donner is keen on making a Gambit standalone feature with Channing Tatum, who’s willing to do Gambit’s real Cajun accent."
