Um, what's wrong with his pants? There seems to be a tear where his dick used to be.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8 p.m. CST
I may be first..and that looks like crap.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8 p.m. CST
because he looks like a damn hobo. Make-up job is cool though.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8 p.m. CST
Hmmm...I guess this looks cool, but the background is awful. Lets hope this movie doesnt suck like the first one did.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:02 p.m. CST
I think that's one of the better X-Men costumes I've seen, and he is a perfect choice for the role.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:03 p.m. CST
It still looks pretty bad..but that just may be the pants..with the crotch taken out. I mean what the heck? Why rip the crotch out of the pants? Oh and uhh his hands look like something out of a bad B movie. Really rubbery and fake. Oh well I'm sure they will polish this all up once the movie hits theatres.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:10 p.m. CST
Boxcar-nightcrawler, on the road again!
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:10 p.m. CST
Looks good to me. Maybe the split in's pants is for F/X reference re: tail? The yellow background seems like maybe it's also an F/X greenscreen type thing. Anyhow, Mr. Cumming (not CummingS, although CUMMING sure does sound sticky...) is a great actor with many a Shakespeare play notched on his belt, so it'll be good to have him alongside Stewart and McKellan. Here's to hoping X2 is a movie that I want to re-watch over and over, which X1, sadly, is not.

...because of his tail! Duh!
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:13 p.m. CST
I don't like his sparkly little jacket. Why does he have a big hole in his pants? And what the fuck is up with his facial expression? He looks like someone just asked him if he likes it up the ass. "Uh, yeah.." I hope Singer and Co. prove me wrong though.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:13 p.m. CST
Nope, I ain't buyin it. Nope nope nope!
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:15 p.m. CST
his tail sure aint coming out between his wang and his butthole, so what's the use of having a tear in that location? In the comics his tail is coming above his butt.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:15 p.m. CST
by a goonie
but it still looks good. nothing amazing. but a beacon of hope nonetheless.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:17 p.m. CST
It's there because of his tail? Makes some sense I guess, but why wouldn't his undies have a huge hole too? The hole in his pants doesn't needs to be just big enough to get his tail through. No, his pants hole is from Wolverines foot being up his hobo-looking ass.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:18 p.m. CST
This is obviously a fan made image. A FAKE! With all the money teh studios that is all they could come up with?! C'mon! What the f***! A fake by a fan boy with no imagination.

not that there's anything wrong with that... although what do you expect from bryan (who is gay) singer and alan (who is also gay) cumming.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:21 p.m. CST
..i guess he looks kinda cool, sorta.. aw hell, who am i trying to kid, he looks like a dipshit with dick fingers who fell in some blue paint
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:22 p.m. CST
Damn, thats way too distracting to let the viewer absorb the total sweetness and impact of this picture. Could we get some Photoshop on this shit right here?
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:22 p.m. CST
I wish they could have CGI'd the pupils out and just left the yellow eyes, but hey.....ain't that shabby, i suppose. He's one of the few X-Men that looks mutant-y aside from Beast, so it's cool he's getting some spotlight at least.

by Kevin Bosch
I think it would be easier for Nightcrawler to completely split the back of his pants, thanks to the seam, then you make a smaller hole that his tail would fit into. Since there is no seam on the back of tighty whities, it would make more sence to make a generalized hole for the tale. Also, you don't want Alan Cumming's bare ass all over the screen, that why they even bother giving him undies.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:35 p.m. CST
by Delete Me
While this is pic is kinda weird and... well... not cool-looking... I can imagine this look will work better in the movie. I mean... when your pants are split, this is probably the worst position you could be sitting in. So why oh why use THIS as a promotional shot...??
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:36 p.m. CST
If you look past "that" in his crotch area, which we can't even be sure is a rip, he looks great. His face and hair are esspecially well done. the hands are a little big, but I guess it makes sense for a wall-crawler like Kurt Wagner. And keep in mind he won't be wearing this all the time. Towards the end he'll have an X-man uniform. Then he'll look kick ass. trust me, we won't be disapointed
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:37 p.m. CST
Sorry. Someone had to say it. OK maybe not.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:40 p.m. CST
What would have happened if NightCrawler had faced Doomsday in his first incarnation the way superman did, i.e. without warning or preparation? What would have happened if Superman had fought NightCrawler with the same conviction and desperation that he had when he faced Doomsday? He would have had his ass handed to him either way and there would be no NightCrawler Beyond. You fanboys always limit Superman by having him face Nights bound by his morality and no killing clause. Superman would rape NC Oz style and then shank his bitch ass. P.S. Harry, 7 words. Stop Eating.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:42 p.m. CST
...if you remember that this is not what he'll be wearing the whole time, its really not that bad. Im not sure WHY he has a huge nad-hole in his pants, but other than that, I guess this would be what someone who is running from the circus would be wearing. ...or maybe a bum. ????????????
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:44 p.m. CST
This looks somewhat decent (besides the background color). Oh, and Filthy Fox, Singer and Cumming being gay has to do with a large conspiracy involving gays in Hollywood, but I guess the voices in your head already told you that. :-P

Sorry. Someone had to say it. OK maybe not.
Sept. 30, 2002, 8:52 p.m. CST
I can't believe that his nuts are hanging out! Couldn't he have put a small hole in the back. His character will become a permanent joke if he appears for even a second on screen like this. Will anyone not laugh their ass off when a dark blue fuzzy elf shows up with his nutsack hanging out.

I don't know what some were expecting, in fact he turned out better then I thought he would. Them cloths are a mess, but I willing to bet he won't be in them the whole movie. Cumming wouldn't have been my first pic, but he works out pretty good.

Don't they know that NC's crotch exploded? They're fucking with the whole mythology if they just have it split. Fuck Hollywood, let's boycott everything that begins with the letter X.
Sept. 30, 2002, 9:05 p.m. CST
doesnt his outfit costume closely resemble Gambit's more than Nightcrawler's? Im basing my assumptions on the cartoon series of course, so I dont know how true to the comics it is.

Never thought I'd live to see Nightcrawler's taint...
Sept. 30, 2002, 9:21 p.m. CST
I could nit pick on how utterly corny that outfit looks(is that a 70's pimp disguise?), but the make up is amazingly close to what I thought it would look like. He doesn't look like Jamie Kennedy from that super hero spoof from several years back, and that's a minor miracle--although I bet dumb people will say he does just to be cute. Overall, very neat, can't wait to see him moving in the next trailer. Thank you Harry, I know you won't get a lot of thanks for this!

... that ugly background is so they can chroma-key in a different background, mortice the promo shots of the different characters together to make it a group shot, etc. What you're seeing is NOT A PROMO SHOT. It's off the roll from FOX's recent photo shoot, which they're going to use to assemble promo material, but this image is UNFINISHED and probably didn't make the cut anyway. When Nightcrawler shows up in Entertainment Weekly, this is not the image you'll see - he'll probably be in a more flattering position, for one thing. There are probably other "post-production" F/X that will be included later on, too - maybe they'll add a bit of a glow to his eyes, for instance. Not sure about that. But this is basically an outtake. That said, I think he looks great! He's probably dressed like a bum because he's been living on the fringes of society - or because he's in the circus, and, well, don't circus people dress funny? :) -Rex
Sept. 30, 2002, 9:30 p.m. CST
He looks about as good as a real person could look playing NightCrawler. People here can be such idiots. Sometimes I can't beleive any hollywood bigwig would take you seriously and make changes to anything because you people complained.

...is that his expression is too menacing. I know it's only a pub shot, but Kurt always had a playful coyness about him. I hope he's written like that. Small detail from an insignificant photo. Otherwise, I like what I see.
Sept. 30, 2002, 9:47 p.m. CST
You people need to get a grip.big fucking deal if his clothes look scrubby,looking the way he does i bet he had to steal them from a thrift store or dig them out of the trash.big fucking deal the background is an ugly color i thought you people would totally ignore that"oh MY GOD! look at the color of that background!?!this movie is going to suck!".Big fucking deal if his pants are split,with a tail thats stronger than your arm of course the pants are going to be abused.big fucking deal that bryan singer,alan cumming,and ian mckellan are gay.that doesnt mean they arent talented or for that matter they arent PEOPLE. personally i think nightcrawler looks great and i cant wait to see him kick some ass.you people who are so terribly hard to please,i have a suggestion....why the fuck dont you dedicate the rest of your lives trying learn makeup,acting,directing,choregrophy,editing,sound,lights,casting,and special effects and make your own goddamn movies so others can bash every single detail you have put your heart and soul into.or just continue to bitch about a single picture forever...

***GUYS,THIS LOOKS PRETTY DARN COOL!!COMPARED TO WHAT THEY COULD OF COME UP WITH.***COUGH(GREEN GOBLIN)!!THIS LOOKS SWEET!!I CAN'T BELIEVE EVERYONE IS SO FIXATED ON THE RIPPED PANTS,HE'S A HOMELESS GYPSY FOR GOD'S SAKE,CUT HIM SOME SLACK,AND AS FOR THE BACKGROUND,THIS IS JUST A PROMO SHOT.IT'S PROBABLY A TEST SHOT THAT DIDN'T MAKE IT!DO YOU REMEMBER THE WHEN THE SPIDERMAN SHOT ON THE LEDGE CAME OUT?YOU COULD HEAR THE COLLECTIVE ORGASMS OF GEEKBOYS AROUND THE COUNTRY.I'M SURE BY THE TIME THE FINAL SHOTS COME OUT OF NIGHTCRAWLER AND THE REST OF THE XMEN,THERE WILL BE A UNION OF GEEKBOY CIRCLEJERKS THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN!!
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:01 p.m. CST
So am I the only one who's noticed that the colour of the crotch flap type thing is different to that of his skin?
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:02 p.m. CST
besides the split in the pants, and awful background... anyone look closer? you see the rosary beads around his waist? at least they got that part in there. Remember... circus clothes first... later X-men uniform! how do you suppose you would create his fingers without using his existing hands? he has to wear gloves of some sort! Wait until the pics are released in finished form to get the real eXperience... I'm curious as to what his feet look like, Cumming has said hooves, but I have read on other sites that he is confused as to what hooves really look like... but this pic hides his feet. It's tough to make out his expression with such a dark face... if these are out-takes, i can't wait to see the official pics!
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:06 p.m. CST
the slit in his pants isn't showing skin... look closely and you will see seams from underwear... tighty-whiteys... the light blue tint must be the make-up under showing through the cotton. seriously some people need to grow up.
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:09 p.m. CST
Oh, like it's so fucking hard to put blue makeup and yellow contacts on someone. His hands look like fucking rubber, ok? C'mon, how hard can it be to get some realistic looking hands? Oh, and by the way, Nightcrawler is one lean, muscular sonofabitch. Cumming is far from muscular. And, anyway, what "bum" wears a sparkly jacket? Are they just balls-out (no pun intended) trying to make Nightcrawler gay? Listen, I have nothing against homosexuals, but Nightcrawler is not supposed to be gay! It'd be like making a movie about Oscar Wilde, and making him some macho womanizer.
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:10 p.m. CST
Just kidding. I actually like it, but don't know what to think of the clothes. BTW, that looks NOTHING like Alan Cumming. Kudos to whoever did the makeup.
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:17 p.m. CST
Honestly, how fucking hard is it to put blue paint and yellow contacts on someone? Let's just get this out of the way: His clothes are fucking lame. Why would a bum wear a sparkly leather jacket? There's no need to see his nuts hanging out. "Ooh, we can believe a man was born with the ability to teleport, but it's impossible to cut a tail-sized hole into his striped pants." Give me a break. I can see this franchise going the way of batman with the over-the-top costuming. Who knows? Maybe I'm wrong. I hope I am. All I'm saying is that this does not make me feel excited about the movie, just the opposite.

or maybe he's a former member of Blue Man Group. Isn't he supposed to be Mystique's son? That makes her a lot older than she looks and a damn fine MILF. Guess there's no trouble with aging and saggy boobs when you can shape shift. Saves a fortune in plastic surgery.

First it was Daredevil with that fan art poster of Daredevil that you can find at Manwithoutfear.com and now this. Go to an Alan Cumming website and you can find the same picture de-nightcrawlerized.
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:51 p.m. CST
Why the fuck would you all be so fixated on Alan Cummings crotch and why would you be looking in that area in the first place!? You stupid fagots! Anyways I dig the make-up job, I just knew Cumming would be perfect for Nightcrawler. The hands are not great but not bad either, they're just ok. As for the clothing it does makes sense for him to be wearing it since he starts off in the film as a homeless gypsy and not an official X-men. I'm sure there's a promotional pic out there of Nightcrawler in his X-men uniform. Try not to condemn Alan's Nightcrawler look without having all the facts, you stupid fucking geeks. We still haven't seen him in action/motion and in the proper lighting. But your not going to listen to me so go ahead and keep talking all your shit, you worthless losers.
Sept. 30, 2002, 10:52 p.m. CST
Just when I thought Singer couldn't do one better on X-Men 1, out comes the internet trailer for X2. Now this kick ass (Heh-heh, ass) live action version of Nightcrawler. All I can say is. . .sweet. I think there are a million ways to screw up an x-costume and this is definitely NOT one of them. Just wait until X3 when Alan here puts on the black x-leather. Freakin' awesome.
Sept. 30, 2002, 11:07 p.m. CST
"fagots" Way to go, numbnuts.

Sept. 30, 2002, 11:24 p.m. CST
Please. This is a fine costume. Let's have a reality check. For all your witty references to old monster movies, and for some reason Alan's crotch, 99.99% of you have absolutely no blessed idea of what it's like to write, direct, or design/mold costumes for movies. Until then, maybe you should find something else to do besides talking about stuff you know nothing about.
Sept. 30, 2002, 11:25 p.m. CST
Rex Luscus has a good point about the background. And I think that maybe the "thing" which may or may not be a rip in his pants, could another place to superimpose something, though I couldn't imagine what . . . After all, it is a lighter blue than the rest of him. and then originaldiddy said he would be in an x-uniform in x3, though I remember hearing that NC was a full fledged member by the end of X2. That does bring up the question, how many movies has cumming signed on for? I'm assuming 2. Also, what's all this about Bryan Singer being gay? In all the 3+ years I've been observing this man making these movies, I've never heard anything about him being gay.
Sept. 30, 2002, 11:29 p.m. CST
Good lord, so many freaky people screaming and yelling over a makeup test. I laugh in your general direction. However, it does bring up the question: do you know that the word "gullible" isn't in the dictionary? Love and kisses, Sammy.
Sept. 30, 2002, 11:48 p.m. CST
didn't you always assume that Nightcrawler was gay? i did. he's like the gay german cabaret guy. anyway, this must be his bum costume before he gets his XMen leathers. the pajama pants make him look hippie (lame). but we can let that slide. and Bryan Singer is far from god, but he did do a good job with XMen. Usual Suspects was fun too. Apt Pupil was okay. the performances were better then the film. of which i am speaking in particular Ian McKellan, another gay actor who is also perfect in his role as Magneto. gee wiz, when you think about the whole superhero idiom -- alter ego, secret power, tight uniforms, etc -- it all starts to seem rather gay, doesn't it? and if that observation bugs you out or makes you nervous or angry, you need some schooling on reality -- what a person wants to fuck is irrelevant. it's what's in a persons heart and mind that counts.

There is NOTHING wrong with this Nightcrawler! It TOTALLY fits with the mythos. The movie could still SUCK, but this part rings true. To say otherwise tags you as the little circle-jerking, furtive dickhead-rubbing, pre-cum swirling, kleenex-dabbing, faintly Clorax-smelling fan boys that you are!
Oct. 1, 2002, 12:16 a.m. CST
Hey, pinheads! Nightcrawler is covered with blue FUR!!! Not blue skin. Blue FUR. It's supposed to be light fur- nothing big and shaggy like Beast, but still, there's a damn reason why Kitty always called him "Fuzzy Elf" and it's not because of his pubes. It's because he's supposed to be furry- Check the Handbook to the Marvel Universe. That being said, the makeup looks otherwise cool... The clothes fit the character, and the pose is decent. -AND to all you crotch-obsessed fanboys, I think maybe you need to just deal with it and come out of the closet, because anyone who worries so much about whether or not something is a guy's genitals or not is looking at the crotch a little too much.

I'm going to have to see him in real X-Action to truly judge. If this costume is his "early in the film look" then that's fine, but if not then this character is going down the unappealing road that Toad took in the first film. I'm actually never going to be fully satisfied with these films until they CG in Glenn Danzig as Wolverine into the first film and recast him into the next two films. Where the hell is the Cajun too? My prediction: It's going to be a flawed yet entertaining series. Glenn Danzig IS motherfucking Wolverine! What a waste.
Oct. 1, 2002, 12:19 a.m. CST
From the Handbook of the Marvel Universe: "Nightcrawler's mutant physiology gives him a elfish appearance, with dark blue velvet-like fur, pointed ears, and pupiless yellow eyes. (His dark fur allows him to blend almost imperceptibly into shadows.)" -I DON'T SEE ANY FUR! Costume and makeup people seem to NEVER study the source material.

Was that big anti-gay outburst legit? Because Alan Cumming himself seems a little... not-straight. I mean cmon, all those musicals! I have no problem with this, but it may be a shock to you.
Oct. 1, 2002, 12:53 a.m. CST
Who cares if he's supposed to have blue fur or not? I don't recall Mystique ever having blue scales, either. But, they made it that way for the movie, and I don't remember anyone with a brain actually giving a shit. It's a technicality that doesn't affect the character in any way. And, Steal_Dragon, if you're so sure this is a fake pic, then why not give us a link to the original?
Oct. 1, 2002, 1:52 a.m. CST
Simply Awesome... take nots from singer JJ. Nightcrawler looks perfect!!!
Oct. 1, 2002, 1:52 a.m. CST
He'll look 100x's that fucking badass in the movie! I have Faith.
Oct. 1, 2002, 2:45 a.m. CST
He should just essentially be himself, Nightcrawler isn't much of a typical hero. I hope to god Singer told him that, AC talks like he needed to be stronger than he is, but that isn't NC. They can't put black around his yellow eyes, I wonder how that will look... (like a reg. guy in contacts?) Entirely yellow eyes might look better, but will cost 'em too much. I wonder if any effects will be done to make his hands and feet be more distorted and thin ? The glitter jacket must make Joey Fatone jealous, it changes his look -makes him seem bigger while NC is so delicately thin and creepy, clothes can enhance that or detract from it. His paws are way THiCK, white gloves would've helped them, but he's not w/the X-MEN yet. He does have some hair, but it's always portrayed as fine, I don't know they could've played with his eyebrow hairs and lengthened them, but it's not a big deal even for us visual people. However, I loathe the scars idea, it's like the makeup guy wanted to show off what he added. Pretty good ears, tail, alright hair. The pants are delightful, excepting the crotch tear (!). Just tryin' ta help out. I have to wonder what elements will make this man look like an evil, creepy Demon on film (beyond camera angles), while he looks like a painted man in this pic. I wonder how long the circus scene lasts and we'll see many freaks in that part? Bearded-Lady! Bearded-Lady!
Oct. 1, 2002, 3:29 a.m. CST
Looks like some reject from NIGHTBREED. Nightcrawler is slender and agile - Cummings looks like someone who's just staggered out of a three-day bachelor party.

Just wanted to give you guys to head up. Seriously, Nightcrawler looks like Nightcrawler. The make up ain't perfect, but it's pretty darn good.
Oct. 1, 2002, 5:26 a.m. CST
Okay, first off... IF this was a 'promotional shot' I find it hard to believe they woul dsettle for this particular shot. It's far from perfect. Secondly, the 'background' is that color so that it can be replaced with another background. They can't use blue-screen, since his skin is blue, so they use a color which is not used in his costume or on his skin, and that's why you see that color background. This was most likely a test shot taken fairly ealy in the process to see if the makeup and costume were going to work. The slit in the pants is eveidence enough for me that this was a test shot. Fox wouldn;t be stupid enough to release a promo shot with something as awkward as the pants slit, whether it's for the tail or not. I'd expect the good people at Fox Damage Control to release a good shot of Nightcrawler very soon to make up for this one. And Harry, yer a dumbass for posting this pic and proclaiming it a promotional shot. Use yer fuckin noggin, man.
Oct. 1, 2002, 5:34 a.m. CST
As I have stated before, I only come to this site to read the talk backs to see if there is anything funny (thanks to Chaffro) and that is about it. Harry has really left me feeling badly about this site as far as his reporting goes.
Oct. 1, 2002, 5:51 a.m. CST
Nightcrawler has very slender hands. 20th Century Fox has utterly shat upon the X-Men franchise. The Budget given to this film as was the prior film was and is pathetic. The film(s) have had to cut major corners filming in Canada, the casting decisions have been based on local talent to cut costs, and appease the tax credits the canadian government gives out. I think for every canadian or UK national in the film the canadian government gives dollars back to the film makers. Also notice the lack of major promotions and tie ins X-Men 1 was given. I looked at the IMDB and i saw no top notch talent working on these films as far as SFX work goes, you really need it with these films. The bland leather costums ruined it for me. They could have designed a realisitic comic costume speific for each character. P.S. One last thing to add LOCATION, LOCATION and LOCATION!
Oct. 1, 2002, 6:33 a.m. CST
His eyes and Mystique's eyes were always all yellow. The pic looks great. Can't wait to see him i his X costume. It will be interesting to see how they incorporate the red V design into his black leather costume. Storm's new boyfriend is looking pretty much like his comics incarnation. His nails could use a trim though. Heh heh.

This is not a completed promo shot. The background is a green screen, and the underpants are the same colour as a blue screen - it's there so they can CG the root of the tail in, numbnuts! And as for the clothes, he's a wandering gypsy, what do you expect!?! He's gonna look great in the X-Men costume by the end of the movie. *** Oh, and AC has been seriously working out for the part, so he'll have muscles! (that's for all you sad cases who see him in one movie playing a skinny toff and have apparently never heard that people can go to a gym. Hey, DeNiro was really fat as the old Jake La Motta - therefore he can't play anyone who's not obese!?! Changing your physique is quite common for actors, people!)

Why in the world do people here, Harry included, not see that he is squatting in front of a green screen. You know, that little bit of technology that was invented in the not so recent past. That bit of technology that is used in every friggin film made these days. That special little bit of technology that allows movie directors and cinematographers to place actors in places not possible in real life. Are people really that stupid? "Ewwww!" "Who chooses the backgrounds for these shots?" "Whoever it is should be shot." IDIOTS!!! Worst yet, idiots claiming to be fans of all things film.

Time will tell but I can't help but get the feeling that that the body is from some other creature someone has found on the net. The head obviously a painted photo of Cumming. The flourescent background gives it away if you ask me. That green does wonders for taking your eyes away from any differences in contrast of the different parts peiced together.
Oct. 1, 2002, 12:09 p.m. CST
Ok, when I first heard AC was doing this role I almost shit. That's almost as good as Stewart as Xavier. So I went through trying to picture AC and after I did I couldn't think of ANYONE else. AC's work is great, even the crap movies he's made like Josie and the Pussycats, and Flintstones (one of the sequels). I have a movie he and Jennifer Jason Leigh co-wrote and co-directed called "The Anniversary Party" (for a chance to see Parker Poseys cute pointys and a good perfomance by AC, check it out) Yeah, the hands are a bit thick, but imagine that he's wearing them as gloves and has to fit probably two fingers in each finger. Probably not very comfortable. I just think it's too bad that because of this those hands won't be as dextrous as NC's would actually be. As for the crotch thing. Yeah, it's for the tail, and it's probably split so far because if he does the amazing acrobatics that he's supposed to, then no amount of sewing it back up would keep the initial split he'd have to make for the tail fixed. As for the underwear, imagine that he's wearing a pair of briefs, boxer briefs, or boxers BACKWARD. No need to cut a tail hole in the shorts, so they'll be less prone to ripping out the crotch, because he just puts the tail through the pecker hole. Hell, Kurt Wagner probably thinks that's what the escape hatch in underwear is FOR. His expression? Shit, after 12 hours in a makeup chair (which is what I heard he's got to go through every time) YOU'D look that annoyed. He also has no reason to make more than an "Alright.... How does THIS makeup look?" face. Especially if that was just a makeup test shot.

...the more obvious it beomes that this is a fake. there is a n obvious overpaint of the eyes were someone has simply painted them yellow. If you look at the nose you will notice there seems to be a lighter area around the edges. either this was done on purpose to to show off the edges of the nose better or it was a mistake on the hoaxers part.

This just looks like someone painted the face blue and left it.
Oct. 1, 2002, 12:46 p.m. CST
I agree they need to do something about the blue paint on his face, it looks bad, and the costume is horrible. I'm hoping this is just what he wore before he joined the x-men but that the majority of his screentime will be in a real x-men uniform.
Oct. 1, 2002, 1:02 p.m. CST
Too many tell-tale signs. The tale looks like they should have pinned it on the donkey. It's too graphicy. There is a white line around his left hand, which look shite anyway. To all you fanart peckerheads out there...Kiss my hairy beanbag. And Cummings, fuck off back to Josie and her pussytwats.
Oct. 1, 2002, 1:30 p.m. CST
The BlankGeneration remembers Kurt Wagner as a straight elf. His g/f was Amanda, an airline attendant, or something like that. He's in the priesthood now, in the current comics storyline. How unbelievably cool and provocative would it be to see Nightcrawler holding a sick altarboy-raping priest with his prehensile tail, scrambling up the wall's and pausing to wave and dangle the priest over the church's courtyard?? "Suffer not the little children!" he screams in a thick German accent. *SNAP* goes the priest's neck, *BAMF* goes the blue elf and the corpse of a freakish child molesting monster comes hurtling down into the crowd of horrified parishioners. Except for the altar boys, they cheer and jump for glee at the sweet poetic justice of it. *BAMF*, Kurt appears outside Kenneth Lay's house, ready to wreak some mutant justice, you see Kurt had some 401k money tied up in Enron..........Thanks for listening

Can't be 100% sure, but I'm leaning toward this being a fake. Aside from everything that's already been said, I'm sure Cumming said he was in the middle of filming when he was interviewed on Graham Norton; and he had long hair. Alan Cumming could be an excellent Nightcrawler, and while that image isn't HORRIBLE, if it IS real then I think they could have done better.
Oct. 1, 2002, 4:11 p.m. CST
Apparently, It's a long horrible process for the nightcrawler makeup. I'm guessing that this is a very old picture, just to test the look of his street garb, taken before actual filming began. They'd never spend the time to fully make him up just for clothing test-shots...... Blue facepaint, shitty gloves, and photoshopped eyes.....simple as that. Not fake,but not an official final image (thank GOD!!) Use yer fucking brains, people!!!

Since Mystique was responsible for Rogue's super strength and stuff in the comics. I thought of a way to get Rogue her powers.In x2 we introduce 'Carol Danvers' (Ms. Marvel), posing as one of Stryker's soldiers as 'Agent Carol Danvers'. Carol is a hero working 'undercover' trying to foil Stryker's plans...anyways back to the Mystique thing, she should morph into Carol Danvers and purposely do something bad and attract the attention of Rogue and the X-Men. TIME PASSES. When Rogue confronts the REAL Carol Danvers in battle or whatever, she'll mistaken her as the Mystique/Carol and fight her in the process absorbing her powers. Yes, she can let go, but the power is too great and somehow she cannot let go resulting in permanent absorption of her powers. Just a thought, it'll be cool tho
Oct. 1, 2002, 5:33 p.m. CST
Sure, it's the wrong size for where the tail meets his rear, but the end of it that gets poked through is a big triangle. It wouldn't make sense if the hole was small...everybody would be complaining, "How's he get the tail tip through that? This is messed up!!!" Singer's smarter than we give him credit for.
Oct. 1, 2002, 5:38 p.m. CST
This is Tight!!!!!!!!Oh my goodness!!!!!!Alan Cumming is Nightcrawler!
Oct. 1, 2002, 6:46 p.m. CST
Where did he buy the suit? From Elton John? Or a Hippie Convention? I mean isn't Nightcrawler supposed to be in his black and red outfit? I dunno...the design looks good and Alan looks good as Nightcrawler. The hands however kind of suck, because I was hoping for the "X:Men Evolution" amphibian, long, slender-fingered hands, but anyways Nightcrawler is going to rule on the big-screen! Let's just hope Beast looks like the comic and not some "re-imagination" or scantily clad as being a furry, blue "Grinch"-looking character instead of comicbook form. And please Bryan GIVE THEM THE X-MEN SUITS! I mean the black suits were fine, but we need to see the X-MEN in their clothes, normal outfits, not black leather all the time...(although Halle and Famke we're sexy in it). But anyways...looking forward to "X-Men 2", "The Hulk", and "Daredevil" all the way!
Oct. 1, 2002, 7 p.m. CST
Everyone who doesn't like Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler is gay? How ironic, you phobe. Alan Cumming is bi. You're right about one thing, though: he does kickass.
Oct. 1, 2002, 7:48 p.m. CST
The background is a "green screen". Slightly lighter than some, but definitely a green screen. Which, as all of you know, means that they're going to be putting something else "behind" Mr Cumming. Maybe a big CG "X" or somesuch.
Oct. 1, 2002, 7:51 p.m. CST
It's not yellow, it's green. It's green because it's a chromakey green screen. Most likely, in the final promotional shot, there will be some kickass image behind ol' Nightcrawler. At the very least, there will be an X-Men 2 logo. You'd think that with all the behind-the-scenes documentaries on The Matrix, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and every other effects-laden movie that Harry would pick up on this stuff... sheesh.
Oct. 1, 2002, 7:54 p.m. CST
It's simple. Gay people ONLY like the same gender. Bisexuals like the whole smorgasboard. There are plenty of bisexuals who are definitely NOT just homosexuals that are half-in the closet. Think of it this way: A homosexual man loves showtunes and musicals. A bisexual man likes showtunes, musicals, and action flicks. A heterosexual man likes action flicks, but is too repressed to really enjoy them, what with the hero invariably being a bare-chested, sweaty, muscular man. Face it. You watched Conan the Barbarian & Die Hard, and had a little mini-fantasy!!!

because it's soooo five minutes ago. I apologize. Anyhoo, I think that they need to get back to some of the original costume designs (except Wolvie. I don't need to see Jackman in yellow spandex). I want Nightcrawler looking like the fuzzy acrobatic bad-ass he is -- costuming a la the Excalibur years. Not some bum with his bum hanging out! Bummer.

......The fire and brimstone, with the smoke that usually acompanies a Nightcrawler entrance. That tail must be a prop for now because his tail is pre-hensile.It would need to look a little more organic to look like a part of his body. Someayas must not have any of the old X-men books when Nightcrawler was dating that Witch, and smooching every woman he came in contact with. Hopefully they'll give him his image inducer so he can walk around like regular folk. Do ya'll think they'll give him those CGI goats legs like in X-men Evolution or just go like he is?
Oct. 2, 2002, 12:20 a.m. CST
I think you guys may have forgotten what the first promotional pics from the original X-Men movie were like. If you've seen them, u know how much they sucked, especially Wolverine. But they did fix everything before the movie came out. They even kept Logan's hair the same without making Jackman look stupid. As for this, I don't think this is too bad, other than the background. Remember that we're dealing with REAL versions of X-Men, not cartoons! Think about if singer had left Wolverine in a flourescent yellow costume. He wouldn't look very tough, would he? Or you could consider Toad and his gay little medieval costume. They have to make things plausible for those who don't know shit about comics.It helps them take it more seriously, rather than a joke like Punisher, or the old FF movie. Nightcrawler is my FAVORITE character, and I don't feel betrayed. I know that it's not his official costume, and his original one would suck on camera anyway. P.S. Superman sucks ass.
Oct. 2, 2002, 12:29 a.m. CST
yes NC has fur... but on his face is skin.. in the comics he grew a goatee... hard to do with a furry face... we'll find out when Halle/Storm rubs his belly when he's injured.... Every inch of fur (from all sources I can gather - mainly comics) is covered in clothing in this pic. I think this has to be a work-in-progress or an outtake from the publicity shots... or a simple make-up test. Only time will tell.... i don't see where anyone's sexuality comes into play when talking about a character... Ian McKellan is a perfect Magneto... who cares if he's gay!?!?!? AC is NC!
Oct. 2, 2002, 12:46 a.m. CST
Wow, a crossover! I heard Heath Ledger is playing the part of "left nut". I bet Heath bangs his head against the wall every morning, because he denied the role of Peter Parker. What a dumbfuck. Tobey is a much better actor anyway. Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler is a great move in my opinion. The guy can act and he looks the part. Let's continue the trend of "great" actors being superheroes. Jim Caviezel for Superman! He made The Thin Red Line a great movie! MF
Oct. 2, 2002, 6:49 a.m. CST
Why can't they pull a "Pleasantville" and color him by CGI instead of such horrid makeup effects? Didn't they learn their lesson with Toad last time? Better yet, take notes on how Peter Jackson has a complete CGI character in Golem and go that route!

I suppose you've got to have a place for the tale. But still. In those 70's retro pants he looks like oompa loompa extra from Boogie Nights.

They can't use a blue-screen for special effects when Alan Cumming is painted up all blue. Think about it, we'd be seeing through him. That awful yellow is the loudest colour that's furthest away from what's in his costume, id est what they'd need to use for FX shots. Beyond that, I think Nightcrawler looks perfect. Can't wait to see how everybody else ends up. Saturninus go BAMF!
Oct. 2, 2002, 9:38 p.m. CST
I heard that this character could likely be in the next movie? And who would play him??? Talk is sam neill, robin williams or christopher walken? This is all up in the air, but if its on the cards let it be christopher walken! this guy can produce pure evil!

First of all, mad props to the Al Jolsen references! I'm assuming this is a test for the circus sequence?? I hope anyway. Bryan Singer is gay? Well, he does sound like Winnie the Pooh, so maybe him and Christopher Robin were more than friends . . . he gave Chris some suggestive "bear hugs" perhaps? Wow, I can't wait for Little Monsters 2 and the robot fighting scene. Be still my little girlie heart . . . Cabin Boy on DVD!! I can die now! By the way, I'm a little disappointed with the lack of butt sex comments.

They could do it as it was done in Age of Apocalypse in which she permanently absorbed Polaris and used magnetism in a manner that simulated Flight and strength or better yet LEAVE HER WITH ONLY HER ABSORBTION POWERS as has been done with the Evolution version of her character to great success methinks.

Look I am into x-men big time. i understand fully that somethings do have to change for the movies but getting a charcter right is the main thing or you get fans pissed off. I am half and half with his look. Eyes and hair are fine, it looks like he does have the pointy ears. He hands eh there alright and you cannot see his feet. On my mere opinon Bryan Singer needs to take a pic of NC and make Alan Cumming exactly as he should be. I mostly disapointed in the fact in this movie pic of NC he does not have his blue fur which makes NC.....NC. the bigger question I am wondering will NC for the X2 movie have his German accent. You cannot take a charcter out of the comics and throw him on stage and make him the way you want Mr.Singer. You have to understand that we the fans want our charcters we grew up with to be right for the films too. Thats like taking Frodo from the LOTR movie and given him no hair or big feet. You screwed up Storm in the first one along with Rogue. Please for the love of Christ give NC his blue fur. He looks like shit with out it. I mean come on it looks like you sprayed him down with spray paint from K-Mart and made some hands out of paper-towel tubes. It shouldnt matter how cool his actions are but you need to understand NC isnt the same with out his down-home comic look. You will only see disapointed fans. I was pissed with the first X-men movie. It was like Bryan didnt really act like he even cared at all. NC clothes in this pic are something he would never ever wear, I mean come on he is not John Trovlata. Get some diffent threads on him, get his make-up fixed and make sure he has that kick ass German accent we all love.
Oct. 4, 2002, 5:22 p.m. CST
Sorry I just felt like posting that. I hope NC's a different shade of blue cuz that's um really. . . er. . . uh- BLUE. I thought he would be brighter than that.

Shut The Fuck Up you Stupid Geeks. Obviously things will be changed and modified to fit the REAL WORLD(not the one of computers, D&D, and comic books), and since the movie audience is much much more bigger then the comic audience things will be changed there too. So .... IF YOU DONT FUCKING LIKE IT DONT WATCH THE FUCKING MOVIE, EITHER WAY SHUT THE FUCK UP !!!!!!!

You people always say the stupiest things on the face of this planet. You all always "THINK" that everything that doesnt live up to your standards just cause you didnt make it or design it. Then you get on places like this and complain that it looks stupid or doesnt work with your image of it, and you always point out the most stupid details on something. If you all didnt spend so much time jerking off to Rainbow Bright and spent more time just enjoying whats out there all of your IQ's might be a tad higher today. So get your fingers out of your ass and get over it and enjoy the movie for what it is and not what for what it isnt.
Dec. 23, 2002, 10:55 p.m. CST
Ok first off im pretty pissed off that nightcrawler looks so messed up. I think they could have chosen a younger slimer person and actually put some fur and and pointy ears on the guy. They choose a bad person to play NC and its really disaponting. Im not a nerd or geek, i just like x-men and my favorite character happens to be NC, he is cool and i dont want to see him jacked up cause some people did not know how to dress him and up and actually give him some better qualites. I hope in the future when a diffrent director is in charge they make a better movie on the famous comic and tv series. oh and by the way Alan Cumming looks pretty retarded in this picture and i hope the movie is good. And one more thing i thought the last movie was good, not suck, and is alan cumming gay? Ok thank you for your time Bye bye
Jan. 28, 2003, 5:51 p.m. CST
I was watching Conan O'brien last night and I got some interesting info reguarding NC. Alan Cumming was the guest and they had a long talk about ngihtcrawler. It turns out that he was very upset with the stolen photo. It turns out that they hadn't finished the photo. The reason there's a large hole in his pants is they were going to use cg there. CG was to be used to put the background and the tail compeletly in and finish the rest of the pants. Also if you look closely his tail is made of plastic. This is to help the cg artist. Alan was amused of the fact everyone thought NC was gay because of the hole in his pants.
March 2, 2003, 10:45 a.m. CST
This was a promotional and starter photo, check out this page with an edited background and the fixed hole where yes it was a guidline for the base of the tail during the computer animation portion of the shot! The background is what we call a green screen im sure you have all heard of it!!! http://www.blue-elf.com/movienightcrawler.jpg
May 3, 2003, 4:12 p.m. CST
DAMN YOU ALL~! Alan Cumming rocks, and he plays a damn good Nightcrawler. Yeah, he doesn't have the fur, but I think the angelic scars were cool! And YOU try making a prehesile tail! It's probably damn hard! Alan did great with the accent, and I thought he was very... erm, how do I put this? Well, he was a lady's elf. He pulled it off. And the Bamfing was cool! It sounded like a vaccum cleaner, only sped up! Give the man some credit, the pic does him no justice. Oh yes, and props up the wazoo to people who mentioned Evolution Kurt! He's the best!! "I am Kurt Vagner, but in ze circus I vas known as ze amazing Nightcrawler!! (happy goofy smile)"
May 9, 2003, 4:39 p.m. CST
Can someone please confirm that Nightcrawler has the ability to also change himself into other characters? I have a bet riding on it. P.S. If I am right, can you give me a link to go to. Thanks

May 14, 2003, 4:38 a.m. CST
Alright dumbfuck's. For one... ALan Cumming has made this part. If I'd seen Ethan Embry play this guy I would have shit myself. Can we PLEASE forget for 3 hours that he is gay. Or bi- whichever. You know who else is gay- Ian McKellen AND Bryan Singer. Let's get over it. Secondly- the shot was promotional. They shot this in May of 2002 a whole frigging month before they even started filming. I think it's pretty damn good considering they had barely made the sketches and plans. Yes, in the comic books he has fur. No, in the movie he does not. BOO-FUCKING_HOO. Haven't any of you seen Harry Potter? It's not necessarily as true to the book as some wanted. The image of these characters is going to be different to everyone. I'm a HUGE fan of the original comic books and I say FIE on all of you who have a problem with the fact that he doesn't and will not have fur. The scar-tattoo's are twenty times better and sexier ANYWAY. For the movie- I think it's perfect. I have no complaints toward anything. Plots get mixed, characters don't come out the way each and every fucking one of you want them to. SHIT HAPPENS. Pull your heads out of your asses and go watch this movie from SInger's POV not your fucking comic book POV. I swear it's people like you that come bitch about this stuff that are making America fail as a humane country. Bah! The hole in the pants... WHAT AN IGNORANT comment for that asshole way earlier to make about Alan's "insatiable" whatever whatever for sodomy. Here's the scoop: they had to finish the fucking promo shot within 20 hours to get released his pants had not been fully sewn at that point in time and they had to take it as it was. AND they didn't know how much room they needed for the tail because they hadn't even MADE the real tail yet. It's a rough, people. And I still say it's well done for the amount of time they had to do it in and how soon after concepts were drawn up. There's my 2 cents.
July 23, 2003, 1:17 p.m. CST
Ok so i know the rip in his pants is the hole for his tail but still calvin klien undies *Steff trys hard not to drool* vry classy but their has been weird debates over wether Alan is gay! who cares leave the man alone he peobably is just camp and im also from Scotland and know some vry nice gays anyhoo Alan rulz
