Perhaps some sinister individual could coax Remy away from Xavier's school with the promises of all the power he could dream of. A little bit of scientific experimentation could go a long way to explain how Gambit could appear to be the same age for over 20 years. Maybe a serum derived from Logan or Victor could keep him young for as long as he's in the service of his new boss. I mean, it's a hell of a lot more believable than the whole clone Marauders thing that the comics abides by.

Beast and Angel were meant to be in X-Men and X2 respectively, but the costs for the characters weren't worth it in the end. Ironic that they both appeared together in X3, then. Gambit was supposedly too much like Logan personality-wise, and his powers would invoke Cyclops in the audience, so they scrapped him throughout the franchise until Wolverine (which had both Logan and Cyke).

Those were the reasons given for their exclusion though. Honest.

Yep. They didn't make much since at the time and it didn't help afterward when Singer realized just how popular characters like Gambit were.

Trying to make Silver Fox more sympathetic by giving her an excuse for betraying Logan just ended up making her seem more selfish. And then it got her killed. They could've just stated that either a) she was with Weapon X all along, but she tried to abort the mission once she fell in love, or b) she was being held captive after Victor faked her death, being forced to keep the captive mutants under control emotionally. At least then, we could've judged Kayla's character without having to involve the old moral dilemma of "if you steal bread for your family, is it wrong?". Emma really didn't do anything for the movie - she could've been great, but considering she wasn't even part of the dead pool, she was just there for the sake of that cameo.

You have to believe there will be countless Cameos as this is a prequel and they can't do without reference to the other films.

I'd expect a cameo from Juggy, Victor Creed, and possibly Apocalypse or Shadow King. And of course the gratuitous baby hero cameo ie: White haired African girl...

the entire movie sounds like a heap of meaningless cameos ala the last stand. like beast and blob in x-men, and supposedly gambit in x2 were proposed, but fox wouldn't allow singer to spend any more money. so they made jean a doctor, cut beast out and did away with blob all together. wolverine's stunt double was going to have a cameo as gambit, allegedly.

was taylor lautner reallly approached to play wolverine? even in the 60s wolverine would look 30. i really don't get why they think prof x and magneto's friendship and no original x-men aside from beast are good ideas. after x2 the only good marvel film was iron man. tih had its moments but wasn't as great as it couldve been.

Beast and Blob would've had some slightly decent screen time, but like you said, money was the deciding factor that ultimately had the characters canned. It worked out for the best, I guess, since it gave Xavier, the X-Men, and the four Brotherhood members a little bit more time in the spotlight. Any more than the relatively small cast we had, and it could've been a tough juggling act for a first film, so it worked out for the best in that respect.

The nice thing about a prequel like this is the sheer amount of potential for cameos. I haven't heard anything on definite cameos that are likely to appear.

I'd expect maybe one or two name drops and a couple of easter eggs, but I'm not expecting to see a great deal of physical character cameos...
