Kodi Smitt-McPhee aka X-Men's Nightcrawler Would "Absolutely" Join The Marvel Cinematic Universe

MC'n you again.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is bringing almost 20 years of films starring everyone’s favourite mutants to an end. But it’s left us with some questions.

With the X-Men franchise coming under the Disney banner after its acquisition of 20th Century Fox, audiences have wondered what whether or not this is indeed the last film in this continuity or if there could be a merging of the franchises.

And although nothing has been set in stone, Kodi Smitt-McPhee who plays the teleporting mutant Nightcrawler said that he would “absolutely” be up for reprising the role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speaking with GOAT, Smitt-McPhee said “there’s been speculation, rumours and myths that they’ve been trying to merge them for a long time.”

“This [X-Men: Dark Phoenix] ultimately kind of shows the arc of where he [Nightcrawler] could go and that was my intention, to connect – to the first reveal of Nightcrawler that we did in Apocalypse that was really timid, comedic relief and vulnerable. Into this movie where it’s that different tone where it’s emotionally driven and it’s much darker.”

Here’s the thing, Smitt-McPhee’s performance in Dark Phoenix is phenomenal and makes him a worthy successor to Alan Cumming from X2: X-Men United.

And in all honesty, we’d love to see this iteration of X-Men fight alongside the Avengers if not at the least: Nightcrawler suiting up alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Comedian Harley Breen Tells Us A Joke - And Explains Why You'll Pretend To Be Offended By It

Better twist than Shyamalan.

Harley Breen is without a doubt one of Australia’s most underrated comedians. But hopefully with the premiere of Taboo on Network Ten, that’ll all change.

Taboo was a particular highlight of Ten’s Pilot Week in 2018. Focusing on marginalised groups like the terminally ill, people who live with mental illness and people living with a physical disability. Breen goes on holiday with each group, talking to them individually and as a collective to learn about their trials, tribulations and experiences.

After the time away, Breen writes a stand-up set with material that he developed alongside the guests and performs it in front of their friends and families in a performance that is nothing short of heartwarming.

And that’s why Breen was the perfect person to tell us not only a great joke but breakdown why some may find it “offensive” and explain that on the contrary, the joke isn’t actually bad… all while referencing an M. Night Shyamalan movie that came out 20 years ago.


Forget Bradley Cooper And Lady Gaga, Polish Club Are Here To Take Their Throne

Tell me somethin', girl. Are you happy in this Mario world?

Ahead of the release of their second album ‘Iguana‘, we had a chat with one of Sydney’s best exports, Polish Club.

Yeah, it’s a weird idea.

We learnt about what creating the album was like and how they think that they’re ready to follow in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper romantically serenading each other on stage.

But we had another challenge for them: tell us about yourselves and your music while playing Mario Kart.

Sounds easy right? Think again.

Welcome to our new series, GOAT Kart.
