    I wonder what kind of role of Lizzy would be up for. Since Mean Girls, I've only really seen her in roles that were at least a little comedic but I've never watched more serious stuff she's been in like Masters of Sex (that's a serious show, right?).

    I think you just nailed why many of us fans are not exactly for a Gambit film especially starring Channing Tatum. Basically, they are not revealing it, but Tatum is mostly coming along as a comedic draw albeit for me kinda scattershot. Not like Mark Wahlberg, but not too far from that idea. So, Gambit may have been originally conceived as an action-adventure. However, with Tatum producing it (who is not a comedic mastermind like Ryan Reynolds), they're forcing this to have comedic tones. Now with Verbinski who was able to get that with Depp, we know what to expect.

    I'm not going to make any judgements about Tatum until I finally see him in-costume and actually hear him as Gambit.

    I know more of what to expect with Lizzy Caplan involved.
    As you said, Tatum could be coming at it from a comedic standpoint (Gambit should at least be as quirky as Hawkeye or Green Arrow are typically portrayed), but "scattershot" because he has done more than comedic roles. He wanted to be Snake Eyes. Verbinski has also directed more than Depp-focues action adventure flicks, so I am interested to see what his Gambit pitch is.

    Hmmm. Looks like FOX and Marvel are already aligning their universe.

    That would be so random, both because Night Thrasher has nothing to do with Gambit and because we're already getting a Night Thrasher in the upcoming New Warriors show :sweat:.

    12/22: He was a fiance of Bella in the comics but that could be a red herring to who this casting call is for.

    12/31: Thomas Robinson Harper joins as stunt coordinator. He worked on past MCU movies: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

    Anyone from TWS is a good get. That has pretty good fight scenes.

    Well, I guess that means Fox is confident enough that they'll be able to get production moving :).

    Yeah the Gambit movie that was SUPPOSED to come out in 2016 also had a production date they were supposed to start on as well. Until Production has actually started and we see them DIRECTLY working on this film I still am somewhat hesistant about this one. I'm perfectly fine with being proven wrong and hey if it does start then and the movie goes well great but we've been through this song and dance before so until we get again ACTUAL production, I still have the right to wear my "spectacles" about this movie.

    Well, that might put another damper in production plans :sweat:.

    This is starting to remind me a lot of The Flash and all the directors that have left that movie...

    Got about a year before starting to film. I just don't think FOX sees the hand writing on the wall. This is a passion project to Chattum and no one else. With the merger about to come about, there really is no reason for the studio to stick with this.

    At this point FOX needs to do like WB DC, and just let go of some of these ideas.
