BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Channing Tatumís next goal for Gambit is to nail down the characterís infamous accent, and heís already formulated a plan to make sure the X-Men card sharkís voice sounds authentic.
Channing Tatum has been working to make a Gambit movie happen for quite some time. Now that those pesky minor details,like directors, have been sorted out things appear to be moving forward. Thereís a lot of work for Tatum to do in order to create the character that he wantís Gambit to be.
The X-Men franchiseís upcoming Gambit stand-alone has spent many months with some major question marks surrounding it. The film has seemingly spent the last few months making very little forward movement in development, but that changed in a big way this week.
Before Channing Tatum tackles his own Gambit adventure, word on the street ó and word from Tatum himself ó was that the card-slinging X-Man would first appear in next summerís X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor recently updated us on the matter, however, and things arenít looking good on that front.
In order to prevent all of the upcoming comic book movies from feeling stale and repetitive, some of the projects are definitely going to have to present material that comes from outside the box and changes the game - and it's for this exact reason that Channing Tatum believes his upcoming X-Men spin-off movie Gambit is important and needs to happen.
After months of pursuit, the search for a director to helm the X-Men film Gambit is finally over. 20th Century Fox has picked this individual for the project.
Channing Tatum has been trying to get a Gambit movie made for quite some time. Heís ready to star. He has a script. He has producers. Now, if only he could find a director.
The X-Men movie series has typically stuck to the task of tackling immense threats to the world. While thatís all well and good for those team dynamic films, itís starting to sound as if Channing Tatum wants to break that mold a bit with his upcoming solo shot in next yearís Gambit. Could we be seeing a different take on the origin film?
New Mutants are now in the mix, but what are the titles that the X-Men franchise can use to compete with both Marvel and DC in the years between now and 2019 and 2020? We have a few ideas...
Channing Tatum just dropped a hint about whether or not we'll see Gambit show up in X-Men: Apocalypse.
X-Men: Apocalypse has one of the biggest ensembles weíve seen in an X-Men film, and anticipation grows. But what will this movie mean for the X-Men Universe. Well, according to writer/producer Simon Kinberg, it is going to change the history of the X-Men cinematic universe forever.†
Remember that Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum? It looks like it's happening way sooner than anyone had thought. Peek at the new date after the jump.
Even though 2015 doesnít have as many comic book movies coming out, thereís still plenty of exciting news and revelations that will come out. Check out the superhero movie questions that we think will be answered over the next 12 months.
While Gambit hasnít had as many solo stories as Wolverine, who is the only Marvel mutant to get his own movie thus far, there are still plenty of material to draw from his past, whether itís from his tenure as an X-Man or his time with the Thieves Guild. But with all of those stories will come necessary side-characters. When the Gambit movie hits theaters a few years from now, these are the characters who need to show up alongside him.
Wolverine wonít be the only X-Men character to get a solo film. The card-throwing, Southern charmer Gambit is officially getting his own movie! Read all about whatís in store for the glowing-eyed mutant.
While the X-Men film franchise moves forward with projects like X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and a rumored live-action TV show, one aspect of the series have been relatively quiet recently. Back in May, reports indicated that Channing Tatum would play Gambit in a standalone movie, the actor repeatedly expressing his interest in playing the Raginí Cajun. But it many be years before we actually get to see his take on the character.
With the cast of 22 Jump Street currently making the press rounds, MTV took the opportunity to ask Channing Tatum about his possible first superhero movie. The actor confirmed that there have been discussions about him taking the part, but that there are still a lot of things that need to be done before the film can actually be made
The question is, when would we see Channing Tatum's Gambit? Given that Tatum is an A-List actor, it seems unlikely he'd play a bit role in X-Men: Apocalypse. Could Fox be planning Gambit as a starring vehicle for Tatum, possibly for that unrevealed 2018 release date?
Gambit has been a fan-favorite of the X-books for years. He was portrayed on screen by box-office poison Taylor Kitsch in the standalone film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And while his take on the character wasnít terrible, fans no doubt left that movie thinking that Gambit deserved better.
If Fox wants to extend the brand for years (as is the plan), they are going to have to continue to develop the versions of the X-Men characters introduced in Matthew Vaughnís X-Men: First Class.
