No they dont, they are amazing, yet people think Singer cant direct action .

And Gambit was originally in X-3, even got as far as having a guy cast and showing up in the movie trailer, only to have been edited out. I forgot the actor's name, but he was pretty vocal about it on here during the pre-X3 days when the teaser trailer hit. So looked like X3 had no room for him either.
Agreed, you write the story and find which characters fit that story, not the other way around. And i'm pretty certain Singer mentioned Gambit being in X3 just after X2 was released, I think he would have been included.
