    Realize I only know the X-Men from what I see in the movies since I never read the comics, but I saw "southern" and I thought of Gambit since isn't he from New Orleans?

    Looking at the description again, he really does sound like Gambit. You might be right, narrows. This will be crazy if we actually get Gambit in a Wolverine film.

    Guys, not only does it sound lilke Gambit, but if it is Gambit, that sounds like the PERFECT arc for him.

    "He's about 30 years old, a charming southern guy on the surface but he's got some ulterior motives going on underneath. By the end of the film, he's probably not going to be such a nice guy."

    I always hoped if they put Gambit in a film they wouldn't jump straight for the fan-favorite nature of his character, but the original intention of a mysterious man walking with some heavy sins, who may be allied with you... or may be up against you.

    That's HOT.

    I was a actually thinking Wraith with this one and I would like it to be Wraith more than Gambit because...well...I'm a Gambit + Rogue fanboy. :p

    I was thinking James MacDonald Hudson and they might explore the Hudson involved in creation of Weapon X angle that was suggested in the comics. From the description given by the actor it would appear to be a really villainous role.

    I really hope it's not anybody that's been suggested so far though - Hudson, Gambit or Wraith.

    If It is Gambit, then it seems he'd have a rather large part in the film. :down

    You know what? With Iceman and Angel as freakin' kids, I don't give a **** anymore. Their ages are all out of whack in the movies anyway. Bring on old man Gambit.

    Age isn't as much of an issue as placement is.

    But this is suppossed to be set around 15 years before the events of X-Men The Movie. Gambit is hardly 45 in the comics. I know you're a pretty big Gambit fan from your posts on ComiXfan, Canemacar, what's your view on Gambit being in this in what's probably a big role?

    I don't want to see Gambit because of just that - his age in the timeline of the X-Men world. I'm sure at some point we're going to get X-Men films that take place in the present/near future and it'd be better to save Gambit for a future team film (which will eventually happen again) where he can be his proper age. But then again the movie-verse has varied a lot from the comics, so...

    He'll be the new lead in the next X-trilogy and will be marketed as "That guy that Wolverine knew" and he'll form a romantic relationship with Storm. Just watch.:o

    Not keen on Gambit in the Wolverine movie. Gambit fits so well into my X4 script so I think he belongs there!

    Honestly? I love it. Gambit being a teeniebopper in the team movie is a guaranteed way of ruining the character with a bad love-triangle with Rogue and Iceman. At least with a 45 year old, he will be his own character.

    Sure sounds like Gambit, especially since they want to keep it secret.

    Personally, I don't care if we ever see Gambit on film so this is as good as anything IMO.

    A good definition of Gambit! :D
    I just hope they'll keep him away from "Wolverine"...

    Well, on the 'plus' side, it does stop us getting a Rogue/Iceman/Gambit love triangle.
