NOW COMES THE COSPLAYER: Nightcrawler, Rogue, Medusa and The Green Goblin

Okay so in X-Men: Days of Future Past, they did a pretty good job of bringing people back, especially those integral to the whole concept. In honour of their bringing-back-ness, and their ability to restore fan appreciation, I dedicate this post to other Marvel characters who need to be brought back on screen, and those that cosplay them. Behold!

Ever since X2, Nightcrawler has been a baffling absence. I mean, really of all the people Wolverine knows, Quicksilver was the most obvious jail-break choice? Snapped by photographer Jonathan Lieurance, this cosplayer looks set to take over, should Alan Cumming not wish to reprise his role!

Rouge sure could have taken out a lot of sentinels in the future, had she not been cut from 99% of the film. And if they'd gotten her flying and strength sorted. Don't get me wrong, I love the whole 'pre-Ms. Marvel' faithfulness the X-movies have given the southern belle, but when she inspires cosplays like this, we really need to get her flying again.

Okay, it's a little known fact that Sam Raimi's title for Spider-Man 4 was 'M.J. Means Medusa' - but the cat had to come out of the bag about his red-headed plans at some point. Okay, there's no fact or truth in that sentence, but come on! When you see a cosplay this good, you just have to squeeze it into a cosplay post, whether it fits the stupid theme or not. Yeah, you heard me. Stupid theme.

Sure in Amazing Spider-Man 2 we had another Green Goblin, but sorry I can't be satisfied until it's of the purple elf's hat and wicked grin variety. Sure it is hammy as hell, but it could seriously work on the big screen! Just get this guy to give a few pointers or maybe Tim Burton, and Spider-Man's true nemesis, might just look like it.

 What do you think? 


  1. Wow! I guess cosplay Kurt for the win, followed by Green Goblin and Medusa. That Kurt looks like a dead-ringer for Alec Cummings doesn't he?

  2. Nightcrawler is BRILLIANT!
    Rogue looks just like Anna Paquin, don't you think?
    Medusa sadly looks like a drag queen though[!].

  3. Thanks guys. I think Rogue shows the comic costumes could actually work. She looks great!

  4. Thanks for featuring my Nightcrawler cosplay!
