X-Men Say bye-bye to Nightcrawler
Not to end the Father's Day Weekend on bad news, but Alan Cumming [known for films such as Plunkett & Macleane and Eyes Wide Shut] has just announced that we should not expect his return as Nightcrawler in X-Men 3.

X3 Loses Nightcrawler

What! The best scene in all of X-Men 2: X-Men United was the opening scene with Nightcrawler tearing up the White House; and now we want to give him the boot? Besides serving up some great action, Alan Cumming's character offered a sizable portion of heart for the film. I don't know what is going on with this choice, but here is a post from Alan Cumming's official site:

EX X MAN!! Alan will NOT be appearing in X3. Fox has not picked up his option to play Nightcrawler for a second movie.

To check out the post, go to the Alan Cumming website.

Fox does what it can to keep Storm, but decides to throw out Nightcrawler. I am at a loss. Is Halle Berry going to show blatant boobies like she did in Swordfish... or how about a sex scene [which X3 supposedly contains] like Monsters Ball? I need to understand this move.
