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 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 imo. If Apocalypse is mostly in the 80s/FC time, then that's were we would get the most out of the character.
Why would Gambit be kept in the past because someone had the "brilliant" idea of putting him in that ****y movie?
Like I said Emma was rebooted and Deadpool is confirmed to be also rebooted...
I'd like to see Gambit with Rogue and the future team, unless they have plans for him in the past (ignoring his previous version), if that's the case I'm OK with it.
