If one person had made a different decision, we could be looking at having a bisexual X-Men solo superhero film next year. It has been revealed that one mutant could have been bisexual a few years ago.
Writer James Asmus, back in Gambit’s 2012 solo series, was originally going to depict the Cajun card-playing thief as bisexual.
‘It’s true that I was interested in revealing Gambit to be bisexual in our series,’ Asmus said, ‘with us first seeing him seduce a man on one of his missions, and soon thereafter meeting a member of the thieves guild Gambit previously had a more significant relationship with in his pre-X-Men debut.’
However, Marvel said they felt it would be ‘redefining’ the character.
