Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li producer Patrick Aiello says that the duo won't appear in the movie.
Official movie blogger Aaron Horwitz attempts do a little damage control, reminding that "Nightcrawler, Pyro and Beast" didn't show up in the first X-Men movie.

Those we are the X-Men they had back in the 60s and they liked it.
