Imagine if we got Gambit in X4 and a new group of mutant villains such as the Hellfire Club or Apocalypse/Horsemen or Mr.Sinister/Acolytes, oh well.
yeah, its kind of shocking to imagine that we would be on X5 by now.
and yeah, Gambit was clearly the right x-men to appear on X4, and with Nightcrawler returning, Angel in a bigger role, sharing one scene with Kurt.... maybe Emma too, starting to develop her ambiguous side, and maybe sharing the very first scene with Scott, for a future relationship.
If Fox would have called Bryan back in 2009 he probably would have said yes too, and right now the X-men franchise would be the longest to date and on a epic elevel.
but anyway, it is what it is. Lets see what happens after DOFP. Hopefully Fox finds a way to continue with both casts.
