    Even if the movie isn't a big success, I can at least remain satisfied knowing that we're getting a (new) comic-accurate Gambit in the X-Men film universe with a movie that sounds true to the character :D.

    Looking forward to seeing how they adapt his costume :cool:.

    Hopefully they keep the red eyes this time.

    Is this still being planned for release this year? With filming not having begun, I imagine if Gambit is released this year, it will be another Fox rushed travesty.

    I think back in November, Kinberg confirmed it wouldn't make the October 2016 date since filming starts in the spring. So Fox should announce a 2017 date soon. It's likely 2017 will be Gambit and The Wolverine 2 but what order is up to speculation. It's for the best anyway, 2 X-Men movies each year should be enough.

    Also teased an accent in "The Hateful Eight". Interesting that this'll technically be up against "Alien: Covenant" if they keep both in October of 2017. If they decide to push it back to November, it'll go up against "Thor: Ragnarok".

    Wow, I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but with that stubble and hair he actually does look like Gambit :cool:.

    I wasn't sure if there was a thread about this or not, so, I'm going to start this thread with this info.

    Well, 20th Century Fox is planning to continue the X-Men Origins spin-off film series, with Channing Tatum as the titular character in the next film, X-Men Origins: Gambit.

    Originally reported on MNR Daily.

    Mod Note: Thread moved here to current Gambit thread.

    Hmmm, guess MNR Daily goofed on the news article title.

    Wow Channing tatum would sound like the guy to be Gambit, though I wonder if he gets the accent right.

    First Kitch, now Tatum. Is there something about Gambit that attracts confirmed box office poison?

    The director and the couple of actors still attached are solid as far as I can tell.

    There's just simply no news to report.
    The other 2 projects, Apoc & Legion, coming up sooner this year have been, justifiably so, more transparent.

    Yeah, nothing to be concerned about. More casting news probably next month amid pics of filming in progress.

    That would be cool to see though I kind of imagine that if they did it, they'd do what they do with Storm and have them turn black and red when he's charging.

    I wonder if it would be easier to maintain those kind of eye effects now, compared to the era of the first X-Men movie, when you can just have most of it be digital or computer effects instead of contact lenses?

    I would think so. I've also been wondering about Spider-Man. I know not in Civil War, but maybe each film it changes.

    They seemed to do a decent job with the Extremis soldiers in Iron Man 3.
