Other mistake: When Forge says "Now we need offensive power," he opens up a containment bubble with no one inside it. The bubbles are transparent, so he would have known whether or not someone was inside it and it would make no sense for him to open up an empty bubble since he was in need of reinforcements.

Other times Warlock is behind Beast on his left and Forge and Mr. Sinister are not in the shot. (00:10:45 - 00:12:45)

Days of Future Past: Part 2 - S1-E12

Bishop: I should have known better than to play poker with an assassin.
Gambit: Shut up fool! [Throws a kinetically charged card at Bishop to no effect.]
Bishop: I can absorb your bio-energy and channel it right back.
Wolverine: I think he's getting ready to raise you.
Bishop: [Shoots an energy blast at Gambit which he narrowly avoids.] That's my mutant power.
Wolverine: [Extends his claws in Bishop's face.] How would you like to try absorbing these? Now sit down, both of you, or cards won't be the only thing that gets cut around here.

More trivia for X-Men

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why Gambit was featured less and less in episodes as the show went on? He was one of the most popular characters in not just X-Men, but all of Marvel Comics around the time this series first aired, so unless it had something to do with his voice actor's contract, it seems odd they wouldn't have utilized him more.
