Are we really saying that a cartoon can do it better than a multi-million dollar big-screen production?
Wolverine and Gambit were also very different in the XMO: Wolverine.
Gambit has a very different personality: more playful, mischievous, romantic. He's not some violent, gruff, conflicted, animalistic soul like Wolverine.
Agreed! I think Gambit could easily be added in the first X-Men movie. Instead of giving us Iceman as the love interest of Rogue, they should have gave us Gambit and it would have been more similar to the comics. I like the movie version of Iceman and I liked his small role on X1 but still Rogue/Gambit are still the original couple.
