The Internet continued to go nuts over the first official look at Jerad Leto in full makeup as the Joker in David Ayers‘ Suicide Squad over the weekend, but Bryan Singer is ready to calm everyone down a bit with a look at Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler. This first look at X-Men: Apocalypse‘s resident blue teleporting mutant should provide a relaxing effect on many fans still fuming about Leto’s crazy look.
It started with a tweet from Singer:

Which lead to this Instagram image, that is now gone:
There was also this video that popped up on Twitter from X-Men Movies:
That kind of gives you the idea of how Smit-Mcphee will look as the young mutant on the big screen. This latest version reminds me of the animated teenaged version from X-Men: Evolution.
What so you think? I like the look, but wonder if this Nightcrawler will be a little more serious than the cartoon version.
