Not the same, he had a much larger role and awareness. People remember him. But they are doing that for Deadpool and sounds like Gambit's gonna be recast. If they recon Gambit to not use him during the FC time and in a later OT film they would be doing so specifically for the OT fans, which I don't see happening. But who knows. I'm fine with whatever they choose. I'd prefer to see Gambit and Rogue but we are now 14 years into this thing and will be almost 20 by the time he is re-introduced. I just want to see the character done justice.
Ultimately there should be nothing keeping him from being in the FC time. Like I said he has direct connections to Storm and unless they have Logan still, they need a character like that in the 80s crew. If Apocalypse is mostly in the 80s/FC time, then that's were we would get the most out of the character.
