NEWS: Gambit Will NOT Be In X-Men: First Class...

Hollywood often has a brain fart. Well, over the past couple of years, it seems like Hollywood has become that guy on the bus on your way to class who continually lets one loose, and continues his day. One of these mental lapses comes to us in the form of X-Men: First Class.

For those out of comic circles, X-Men: First Class tells the story of the X-Men, but before they began running Professor X's school. The story takes us through the life of the X-Men as they were taking classes and learning how to control their powers. It has long been thought of as a possible film project, and now it looks to be coming to us, by O.C. creator Josh Schwartz, but it will also be a prequel to the successful X-Men film franchise.

That said, one thing that kind of gives me solice, is the following bit of news.

In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Wolverine meets more than a fair share of young mutants. However, he also meets Sabretooth, which is a direct timeline breaker for the actually X-Men franchise, as he did not meet Sabretooth until X1. Also, in Wolverine, the titular character meets Gambit, and it has been announced that Gambit will NOT be in First Class. Hopefully this is to be a prequel to the full franchise, instead of a sequel/spin off to Wolverine.

Come back later for more news and notes.

Go see something good!
