Kurt's Swashbuckler Film Highlights

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is just the beginning - talk Marvel on the big screen, small screen and everything in between. DC Cinematic Universe and independent comic creations are welcome, too - The Walking Dead, Preacher, etc.

Don't forget the few fantasy based swordfights in Stardust, Twinkle Toes Shakespeare and the Undead Sword Fight.

Sure the pirate ship fight is incredibly short, but I love a fight scene that is timed to music. Plus the asian pirate fighting with two swords for that tiny moment is very Nightcrawler :D

I am pretty sure every sword fight involving Hook & Peter Pan is in some way very Nightcrawler.

really? hmmm, maybe... but Kurt seems a bit too 'manly' for the whole 'little-boy-forever' thing...
there's a one-shot Nightcrawler comic that 'Fables' writer Bill Wilmington did with a great modern 'fairy-tale' sort of gist on Kurt...but he's still characteristically very much a 'sexy' full blooded and ever-so-sensitive man's man - a gentleman misfit out to save the damsel in distress.

...you haven't seen the movie yet? Damn, I pretty much spoiled the movie for you now. Oh well, it's your own fault for not watching an instant fantasy classic like that one. It basically goes up there with the 80's fantasy movies.
