Gambit and Nightcrawler Could Show Up in X-Men: Apocalypse
In a recent interview with Cine Premiere, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer revealed plans for the third installment in the franchise, even though X-Men: Days of Future Past is still awaiting its cinematic release.
According to Singer, he was thinking of bringing back two fan favorites who have already made appearances in the previous iterations of the X-Men franchise: Nightcrawler, who last appeared in X3, and Gambit, who sort of appeared in X-Men: Origins.
“I’m considering Gambit and potentially a young Nightcrawler for Apocalypse,” says Singer. “I was going to have Nightcrawler [in Days of Future Past] and even wrote a scene, but I felt that we were forcing too many mutants into the story.”
