Meh we're pry not missing much with First Class. I think it looks (and sounds) pretty terrible itself.
That said, FOX wants it to be a reboot and a new trilogy (before they inevitably reboot it again), so there's always a chance Gambit comes back around.
It's really not hard to see why Marvel regrets selling the film rights of their characters to other studios, though...
