We spoke to the lovely James McAvoy recently and aside from asking him lots of questions about this new film, Welcome To The Punch – we just had to ask him about the latest X-Men film, which is set for release in July next year.
And, on listening back to the Scottish lovely, it appears that he has let the cat out of the bag by confirming the return of Alan Cumming, who played Nightcrawler.
Prior to our chat with the 33-year-old, Alan had not confirmed whether he would be reprising his role when filming starts this spring.
We love an accidental exclusive!
Chatting to our very own Lucie Cave about the cast line up for the sequel, James clearly lists Alan in the returning cast, saying:
“You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender,] Nicholas Hoult will be back, and he's just blossoming massively over [in America…
“Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned - I don't know if that's happening - 'Huge' Jackman is coming by, he's massive, 7'5″ and muscly…”
