Nightcrawler has been mentioned before, but Gambit has always received a thrumbs down. But, according to Tribute.ca, Gambit could make it into X2 afterall.
The X-Men are called into action when the powerful mutant Magneto (McKellen) escapes prison, and an army of giant robotic Sentinels are created to hunt down and destroy all mutant-kind.
Meanwhile, the team recruits two new members, the Cajun thief Gambit and the German-born, blue-skinned teleporter, Nightcrawler.
Nothing official yet.
