And no, I won't be pleased, because come X4, he still won't be used properly. He'll be used as Wolverine's replacement, and be fighting alongside X-Men: The Lizzie McGuire Years, because they couldn't get any of the actors back, ditched all the characters that matter, and have a core of Kitty, Iceman, Gambit, and Jones.
1. Well thats just too bad. It seems the writers want him as a frontline character. Deal with it.

2. How many times does it have to be said? It seems they did want him for X2 and X3 BUT THERE JUST WASN'T ROOM TO GIVE HIM THE ROLE THEY HAVE IN MIND FOR HIM.

3. What?? He so you want him in a movie yet your automatically assuming he will suck anyways even if he is given top character treatment?? There is just no pleasing you I give up...lol.

1. How does putting him in as a cameo or supporting role now stop them from doing that should future movies happen? And in the meantime, it gives us fans an oppourtunity to see our favorite character (and one of the most popular X-Men characters period, so he's a general fan favorite too) should there not be another movie.

2. It's called dropping the ball. Certain priorities should have been established when adding new characters. Nightcrawler was an already established character, he should have been a priority. Gambit has been promised to us since the Last Supper, he should have been a priority. Angel and Beast have been in the plans since the beginning, they should have been priorities (and were). Characters like Colossus and Kitty, as great of additions as they may be (and I love Colossus) shouldn't have been a priority. Quill, Arclight, Multiple Man, and Psylocke, shouldn't have been a priority. I do honestly feel the priorities got mixed up when it came to character selection in this movie.

3. I want to see him in a movie, but I want to see him fighting with the X-Men, not the X-Babies. Gambit is not Wolverine's "replacement", which is exactly what they are saving him for, when they can't get Hugh Jackman back for anymore movies. And I wanna see Gambit fighting next to Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Beast, Angel, Colossus, Nightcrawler, not Kitty Pryde, Jubilee, and Squid Boy. He should be part of the real team, not part of the makeshift team they have to come up with because they ran the franchise into the ground, couldn't get actors back, and had to get a whole new cast of characters.

I personally dont think Kinberg has been honest about a lot of things he has said on the xverse.

And it will be the same this time around I don't wanna wait until December.

Speaking of December, where did you hear December, kol?
i was on a dvd site, and i searched for x-men and x-men 3 was on the list, i think it said its coming out 12th of december, which is the smartest thing for fox, just before christmas

1. I am not one of the writers so quit asking me questions about the writing of characters...haha. I am just telling you what the most likely case is. They are saving him for a big opening sequence, big and integral part, etc. But beleve what you want that is up to you. Just telling you my perspective on the whole situation.

2. It is just hard choosing whether characters should be in or out considering the huge cast and character list. You can't please everyone in 2 hours with so many characters. The ball was dropped on alot of things because they had no choice. And all I can say is they don't want a blink and miss cameo of Gambit that will just be ignored in a future movie.

3. Well your one of those people who thinks recasts and sequels past 3 automatically mean suckage right?? No use arguing here because you already have decided that. I personally feel the franchise can goe through those stages and still maintain quality.

I seriously doubt that's the only thing they've BS'd about.

There were no lies, no promises...Kinberg and Penn have always said that Gambit never made it far into the early scripts...

Yeah I mean he was considered, tryed to be fitted into the story, and thrown around during pre-production but he never was actually part of any script was he??

I don't like that boy as Gambit, but that's just my opinion.

Anyway, I've always thought they wanted to keep Gambit for a fourth movie if Jackman doesn't want to be Logan again. Bada$$ for bada$$... what I think is completely stupid because they're different characters with different personalities, and I'd like to see my two favorite characters -three if we count Storm- interacting in a movie.

*sigh* I have the feeling that they haven't been honest with us in several things, but this is a business and they have to protect their interests. At least we know they had the idea of putting the character into the movie, though they dropped it eventually.

I dunno about the "a lot" part but I think he is deliberately keeping a few surprises in store and playing a few practical jokes on die-hard fans, and his logic behind why Gambit couldn't be in the movie seemed a little shaky. What would be wrong with a cameo? With a big mutant war at the end, and this being "the last" of the franchise, I would expect them to pull out all the stops, so I think Gambit might show up and give Rogue a quick wink and "Bonjour, Chere!"--after all it would further her arc by making her realize there are other fish in the sea besides Bobby. But who knows?!?! I half-expect Nightcrawler to show up for a sec too!!
P.S. I would love it if she would wink back and say, "Hi, Sugah!"
