Marvel Still Tries To Make Gambit A Thing With His Own Movie

Stop Trying To Make Gambit A Thing. He'll Never Be A Thing.

While at the Television Critics Awards (TCA) Lauren Shuler-Donner told press yesterday that a Gambit movie is still being prepared to inflict on, I mean present to the world. She then went to talk about the X-Men TV show Legion and throw out the fantasy Deadpool-Wolverine movie we'll likely never see in our lifetime.

The Gambit movie is still set to star This Is The End breakout Channing Tatum as the Cajun-accented, duster-wearing, card-throwing-because-throwing-cards-as-weapons-is-somehow-cool X-man.

X-Men producer Simon Kinberg had this to say,

I think the truth is when you have these movies that need a very special and unique tone, it takes a little while to find that tone. Deadpool feels like it exploded out of nowhere but it was a ten-year development process on that movie. I think it was honed over those ten years. I hope that Gambit doesn't take ten years but it takes a little honing to get that tone and that voice exactly right.

But with no release date made, no other word on the script or casting aside from The Lego Movie Superman, the future isn't coming up aces for the comic book superhero.

But surely they'll make Gambit a household name this time. This is the year 2017, not 1990 when he debuted. Or 92. Or 93, 94, 95...
