Alan Cumming will not be reprising his role in the new X-Men movie, it has been reported.

The Scottish actor played Kurt 'Nightcrawler' Wagner in X2 and it was rumoured he would be back in the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past, with even his co-star James McAvoy suggesting he thought that was the case.

However, website ComingSoon.net claims it has confirmed that Alan will not be in the film.

Several former X-Men stars are returning to the fold for the new film in the franchise, which is the follow-up to the prequel X-Men: First Class.

They include James, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Ellen Page and Anna Paquin.

James recently hinted that Alan would be back as the Nightcrawler during an interview on Heat Radio, mentioning the actor's name when discussing the list of stars set to return for the sequel.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past, directed by Bryan Singer, is set to be released on July 18, 2014.
