Jason Flemyng is no stranger to geek culture, having already starred in Stardust (based on the Neil Gaiman novel), the much-loathed League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and even had a bit part in Kick-Ass (he was the bell hop). Flemyng now has another interesting role he can add to his resume: Nightcrawler’s father, Azazel.
Now, my head is spinning on trying to figure out how they are going to include Azazel to the plot. Understandably they never touched on the fact that Mystique is Nightcrawler’s mother in the movies, so yes, it’s a bit different having the father this time around.
So we have elements of the Hellfire Club, a demon, and a really young Xavier. This is going to be either really good, or…just another X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
