Director Bryan Singer still has yet to reveal the characters that will appear in his X-Men: Apocalypse. We do know, however, that the movie will take place in the 1980s, and he will be introducing familiar characters in a younger time. Now in an interview with Cine Premiere, the director reveals that he is considering bringing Gambit and Nightcrawler into the fold. Here's what he said,
"I'm considering a Gambit and potentially a young Nightcrawler for Apocalypse. [I was] going to have Nightcrawler appear [in Days of Future Past] and even wrote a scene, but I felt that we were forcing too many mutants known history."
I would love to see Gambit back in action, so it will be fun to see if Singer actually follows through with it. We do know that X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner wants to make a standalone Gambit movie with Channing Tatum, so maybe this could lead to that. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit on May 26th, 2016.
