Alan Cumming is NOT returning for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’

X2-Nightcrawler

Update: Alan Cumming has debunked the news that he’s returning as Nightcrawler. While doing an interview with Sirius XM, Cumming said “No, they haven’t [asked me to return]. Someone asked me that the other day and I said no. I know the one that’s coming up shoots this Spring, but I wouldn’t be available anyways. I dont think they have. I was gonna meet my manager for dinner later, I was gonna ask him, but no, I’m sure they would’ve told me, had they approached.”

Original article:

During an interview with Heat Radio, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST star James McAvoy seemingly let slip that Alan Cumming (Nightcrawler) has joined the cast.

“It’s huge, the cast is huge,” said McAvoy. “You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender,] Nicholas Hoult will be back, and he’s just blossoming massively over [in America]. Patrick Stewart, Ian Mckellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned – I don’t know if that’s happening – “Huge” Jackman is coming by, he’s massive, 7’5″ and muscley.” he joked.

Just to be safe, lets not confirm this 100% until an official announcement is made via Bryan Singer or 20th Century Fox. There’s always the possibility of McAvoy going off hearsay, etc.

  1. so is afirmative that everybody is in the movie so then if is everybody in so the film should be taking 2 or 3 hrs a go

  2. If you watch the X2 dvd, Mr. Cumming said he would not wear that blue make-up again. Even with a body suit and only putting make up on his face, it would still be difficult. and let’s hear if Gambit will make an apperance here also.

  3. ok well doesn’t matter who said the actors the matter is the title of X-men is done so if Alan cumming doesn’t returning for the movie so what we have biger things to know he not the only one there are so much actors insted of him so give me a break and if he do it ok and if is not that 2 so so the life is short so lets move on doesn’t matter if hes returning or not we have biger things to see so nock it off
