WARNING: HUGE SPOILERS FOLLOW:
At the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past it was revealed that Jean Grey and Cyclops are indeed alive. This left fans wondering if the pair will be returning in the subsequent sequels.
Writer and Producer Simon Kinberg had this to say about it:
It will focus primarily on the First Class cast...but it will certainly have some of the original cast involved, too.
With the inclusion of Mr. Sinister into the series it would seem to suggest that this is where the story is going for Apocalypse; Mr Sinister having had many run-ins with Cylops and Jean Grey over the years.
And when asked about the return of Brian Singer as director he replied simply, 'That is the plan'.
Speaking on Channing Tatum appearing as Gambit in [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267) Kinberg had this to say:
Gambit is still in-motion and being figured out. Channing made it known that it was a character that he loved and would love to play, and all the people who work on the X-Men movies are huge fans of his, so the notion of him playing it is exciting. I’m more fascinated by anti-heroes, and Gambit is one of those. I don’t know why he wasn’t explored in the original X-Men movies. Maybe the reason why was because they wanted to focus on Rogue/Bobby or the platonic Rogue/Wolverine relationship, and maybe there were too many similarities between Wolverine and Gambit, so in order to make it a Wolverine-centric franchise they had to cut him loose.
What do you think of Channing Tatum as Gambit?
Whose return are you happy to see most in Apocalypse?
