    A part of me is admittedly skeptical. Even though it's an outline, it's pretty on the nose with what happened in the comics. He was even hired by Sinister. The only difference is no mention of the Marauders and Morlocks.

    The outline is the only thing that has gotten me excited about this film.

    That's....potentially very interesting casting. I'd be very curious to see how that would work out.

    10/3: Wow, that's definitely interesting. I recall Bryan Cranston was interested in playing Sinister, in general.

    10/5: Gore Verbinski is close to finishing a deal to direct.

    Huh. His track record is very 50/50 for me, so if he ends up doing it, I hope we get the "good" Verbinski.

    If nothing else, I think Verbinski has experience with swashbuckling adventure movies that I could see them trying to develop the film as :).

    Maybe Gambit will be the Jack Sparrow of the XCU :p?

    Oh yeah. I figured it was in reference to the two families/guilds at odds.

    Again FOX films especially Gambit don't have enough cred for a release date to really have the weight on it's own for it to feel like it's coming out. I mean it can come out and be made in the time they said (just as New Mutants was which has it's first trailer out) but there still isn't the assurance of say an MCU date. Though if this date does keep this will come out the week after Sony's Silver and Black movie so any momentum that movie may generate will be cut down by Gambit. Still until we actually see information of Remy's movie actually being in production I'm still holding my breath on it considering how many delays it's been through.

    I'm curious to see how much of the original script is still intact at this point even if Bella Donna and the Thieves/Assassins were probably always going to be involved one way or another...

    If they were talking $150 mil, I too wonder what they had. I'm sure the adjustments involved the sfx.

    Rumors suggest Candra The Benefactress will possibly be a main villain.

    I wonder if they'll keep her romantic attachment with Gambit intact...

    I'm also curious if they'll establish the Externals here, and maybe connect Sinister to them? Maybe even setup Selene for future X-Men movies :cool:.
