    I always think of Billy Crystal joking about Edward G. Robinson in The Ten Commandments. Talk about miscasting.

    Gotcha. To be honest, I forget what happened in that movie. Gambit just flew off in a helicopter and he was gone before the last act/battle?

    We got to see him play cards, whack Logan a few times with the staff, then the copter. Honest trailers wasn't kidding when they said he was in the movie for five minutes. He shows back up long enough at the end to give amnesiac Logan his name, but that's it.

    Kinberg reveals it's still in active development and the plan seems to be to shoot next year.

    True, but now there's no more Wolverine movies to make.

    I still don't think he looks like Gambit. Besides, the nature of the character is one that shows up whenever and comes and goes as he pleases. Not the type of role to tie to a high profile actor.

    (or waste an origin movie on, he's supposed to be mysterious...)

    Yeah, but they don't get that. So now we have an egocentric actor who will probably show up to SDCC in character to appease the fanboys.

    There's still X-Men movies and Deadpool movies and related projects to focus on. Plus as I've said before and I"ll say again with how many delays and production snafus hit (remember this movie was originally suppose to COME OUT fall last year 2016) this is by far one of those projects I'll only say is in actual production once we actually see filming of it start. Until then they can talk all this pre production they want but I can't really buy it.

    Well, that's a fair reason to opt out. Hopefully if Fox is still committed to this project they can touch it up then ;).

    As far as I'm aware, Chris Claremont did a plot outline or script treatment, not the actual script o_O?

    5/8: I think just a treatment. That news was around October-November 2014.

    7/20: At SDCC, Tatum said they're working on Gambit right now. :/

    Same here man. I was that way with New Mutants but at least that film didn't already promise a release date and totally fail to meet it. And again I'm not totally against this but stop saying "we're working on it" at this point Tatum: actually show you in costume in production photos actually FILMING THE MOVIE. Until then your words are like as empty as words can be.

    Isn't this like the 2nd of 3rd time they've started over at this point :sweat:?

    I'm guessing the "setbacks" were having to accommodate what's expected of a Superhero movie :ack:.

    Well, it's the idea of this being a personal passion project of Tatum that is kinda a turnoff. Nothing personal against the guy, but he is not Ryan Reynolds, who proved he was a comic fan even before the Green Lantern debacle. Tatum has not. It honestly is both sad and a little annoying.

    I will say he's persistent. Alledgedly learning card tricks and getting a handle on the accent, but I simply don't care. It would have to be really good. However, with that original exorbitant budget and so many directors dropping out, I personally just can't see this happening. This isn't Deadpool.

    Details about the movie have leaked

    *will be the Ocean’s 11 of comic book movies

    *Gambit embroiled in heists over two periods of time

    *will reportedly explore his comic book origins in the Guild of Thieves and the war between his LeBeau clan and the Boudreaux family, which his love interest Bella Donna belongs to.

    *will then jump forward to Gambit being hired by none other than Mister Sinister aka Nathaniel Essex to steal a mysterious trunk that was stolen by the Boudreaux clan

    I wonder if he's going to look that much different between the two time periods or if he'll have the slow aging of the other X-Men movies :p?

    I guess making Sinister the villain or a big presence in the film gives it some decent importance in the overall franchise, on-top of being your classic heist movie ;).
