One of the greatest sequences in any X-movie remains the BAMFtastic opening to X2 when Nightcrawler infiltrated the Oval Office in the White House and proved to be one of the most spot-on translations of a superhero from page to screen ever. Sadly that incarnation of Nightcrawler was a one-film only affair. But now a new, younger Nightcrawler features in the new X-Men: Apocalypse (don’t worry about continuity… the ending of Days Of Future Past made that moot). Here he is in a cage fight with Angel in the first clip released from the film, and it looks like director Bryan Singer is having as much as ever with the blue mutant’s teleporting abilities.
X-Men: Apocalypse is released in the UK on 19 May.
