When it comes to X-Men joining the MCU, there are a lot of characters that need to be given a chance to shine. And Nightcrawler is definitely on that list.

With the X-Men joining the MCU, there are a lot of characters that we need to see cast. And one interesting character we want to see is Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner.

For anyone unfamiliar with the Nightcrawler of the comics, this is a character known for his next-level agility, his ability to actually teleport himself, and even being able to crawl on the walls and ceilings thanks to a sticky agent on both his feet and his hands.

Much like the Beast, this is a character who wears his mutant abilities on his skin. And this means that he can’t exactly hide what he is or even who he is. Plus, with his advanced strength and abilities, it is impossible to ignore the fact that he is a superhuman mutant.

There are comics where we have seen him take on a leadership role and of course, his story also includes being rescued by Charles Xavier and joining the team in a more supporting role.

Whatever version of Nightcrawler the MCU decides to focus on, we just want the right actors to step into the role and bring him to life. And the fact that the character has already been played by a few different actors, including the ever-brilliant Alan Cumming means that whoever steps into the part has a lot to live up to.

So who do we think would be a perfect fit for the MCU’s version of the X-Men’s Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner?
