Gambit Cast in "Wolverine" Trilogy

Gambit is known to be one of the confirmed Marvel characters that will have a cameo in the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now reports have surfaced stating that youngster Taylor Kitsch (The Covenant, TV's Friday Night Lights) will play Gambit, and not just in one movie, but all three. I must say, I've been waiting to see Gambit in the X-Men movies, so it's only fitting that he will appear in all three Wolverine films. He was rumored to appear in the third X-Men, but was later removed. 

Gambit possesses the ability to manipulate kinetic energy as well as some limited hypnosis. He is recognized for his manipulation of playing cards and is incredibly skilled in card throwing as well as hand-to-hand combat. Gambit considered a ladies man and has held a relationship with Rogue for some time as well. 

As far as a Wolverine trilogy goes, I can't say it wasn't expected, and it will definitely be interesting to see what they will include in Wolverine's story. Source
