We were already told to get on topic but I might as well say I checked on Wikipedia and apparently they did retcon Angel to be an original member in a flashback even though he didn't know any of the X-Men and none of them knew him in the actual story. So they didn't acknowledge him as a team member in the actual show and made it pretty clear the Cure episode was the first time he ever met the team but they shoehorned him into a flashback in one episode. So we're both half-right because the show contradicts itself. That doesn't change the fact Marvel would never make a film about the original team.
