“X-Men: Apocalypse” writer-producer Simon Kinberg has opened up about some things we won’t see in the film, revealing a deleted scenes in the mall sequence with a breakdancing Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).
Kinberg told Collider, “The mall sequence was probably the biggest scene that we cut out of the movie, um, and it was where they, right now in the finished film where they come out of watching Return of the Jedi, that was the culmination of the mall sequence. But it was just like a montage more than a sort of like sequence or narrative piece of the movie.”
He went on to address the Dazzler scene, reiterating that Taylor Swift was never involved, but revealed that the scene initially involved a breakdancing Nightcrawler: “Taylor Swift was never Dazzler, that was just us going to a concert that was misconstrued, but um, what it did have that I miss desperately, and it will be on the DVD I’m sure, but it was a moment when Nightcrawler, there was a group of breakdancers in the mall, and Nightcrawler starts breakdancing with the breakdancers.”
