I hope Rogue isn't in it. Maybe a cameo to set up him joining the X-Men, but I don't want her to be a big part of the movie.

I think the movie should be about Gambit.  No need for all sorts of extras.  Set him up and let the rest follow if needed.  I think he has more than enough material in his background to do allot.

http://www.cinemablend.com/new/How-Taylor-Kitsch-Feels-About-Channing-Tatum-Playing-Gambit-72478.html

Kitsch revealed to The Daily Beast that he didn’t audition for Gambit again before Channing was cast, but believes the Magic Mike XXL star will be a worthy successor. He said:

Quote
    Um…no, I didn’t have a go. Ever since we finished the movie, it’s never really been an option. But no, I wish [Channing] nothing but the best. It was a fun character to play, and I learned a lot working with Hugh [Jackman] and had an amazing time in Australia. I’m sure they’re doing their own thing with it, and I’m sure Channing will be great.

I don't hate the guy but to be honest Tatum will be better I believe.

That's the second time Kitsch was asked about this.

I never personally enjoyed watching his performance as Gambit, as I felt it wasn't Gambit I was watching.

Good luck in future work but it's all on Tatum now.

Even if she was in it, it wouldn't be a 'big' part. It is a movie about gambit after all. But have no fear, I know for absolute certainty that she will not be in it. Because I would like that and the movie people always do the exact opposite of whatever I want. You're welcome.  ;)

I kinda feel bad for Kitsch because let's face it he didn't get much to work with. It wasn't entirely his fault. He tried his best and nailed the bo staff and card training, and could pull off the charming scoundrel act, but the script sucked.

The thing that Tatum has against Kitsch is that he knows and loves the character, whereas Kitsch had only ever just heard of Gambit. So you had a guy that can act and looks the part but didn't know the character, versus a guy who isn't a great actor and doesn't look the part but knows the character inside out. It's a tough call.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: purplevit on July 11, 2015, 11:38:05 AM
It wasn't entirely Kitsch's fault but I do not want to see his Gambit again. If Tatum wasn't casted then I would prefer to reboot Gambit with a new actor. Kitsch was a joke in Origins
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Sparta on July 11, 2015, 12:22:05 PM
I like Taylor Kitsch, he had the right look for a younger Gambit and had some good scenes, but I don't think the portrayal convinced me that he'd work in a solo film, whereas as Channing is a little more robust and could go toe-to-toe in a fight with a Wolverine or a Sabretooth, where Taylor looked like a mismatch in those scenes. A rebooted Gambit sets him free from the 1970s/80s timeline trap. A present day Gambit has a brighter future.

I have no idea where this Gambit solo is headed. I'm expecting that they'll change a lot of his origin story, it may not have Guilds, it may be something completely fresh. I would like the ending to have a connection to the X-Men, maybe have someone like Rogue or Wolverine pop up and recruit him, or maybe have Cable convince him to join X-Force.

Arrgghh no head sock! See I told you guys the movies always do the opposite of what I like!  :o

I'm also not feeling the title logo. It's kinda too complicated for a logo and especially next to all the other logo it just looks overly fussy.

That shirt was cute, though. Looks like something from welovefine.

Great to see it starting to be promoted beyond Tatum.  I too wish no head sock but I like the enthusiasm.  The card logo  is fine with me.  It looks beat up and rough which is sort of what I think of Gambit's past.

Post by: DonPriceTag on July 13, 2015, 01:47:19 PM
I think the headsock will work better than we think in live action...

What supporting characters do we want to see in this movie? Let's assume its almost completely separated from the X-Men universe so far (because I think they've said as much). What characters from Gambit's background and rogues gallery would you most like to see? Who would work well on the big screen, be engaging enough to be part of the story without dominating it with narrative to set them in place?

Jean Luc, Lapin, Henri, Mercy, Bella, Tante as his support, Villians wise, Sinister , the entire Maruders...all of then, Julien and the Tithe Collector instead of working for Candra he works for Sinister

I love Luc and Bella, but Henri, Lapin and Mercy? Kinda boring, no? I guess they'd be fine in passing but as possible focus points in a movie about super powered hero? I guess Tante could be interesting enough... I think I'd embrace the idea of Joelle or even Courier. I think Jessica Biel could pull Joelle off well...

But we still don't know exactly where the movie takes place... Exclusively in NOLA, just starting there and ending up in a bigger city, out of the country.... Want more information.

Lapin is a good comedic relief character much like Courier who id like to see also played by Misha Colins, and id like to see them adapt some elements from the Titheing like Henri's death and Juliens resurrection, or show him with Remy in Paris

I think I'd we're open to the Tithe then we got have Cassandra in it. But I guess she'd be pretty domineering in terms of development, unless Fox is going to use the Marvel route and have a "villain of the movie' type deal. Used once and then on to the next.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on July 13, 2015, 05:56:52 PM
I think it would almost be better to go the GOTG route and not put a big focus on his backstory. Show the Guild for the first ten-fifteen minutes, then snap to present day with shenanigans of some sort happening and then the rest of the movie can be like Ocean's Eleven where he's trying to pull off a heist. Maybe an X-Men character tries to stop him or joins in when they realize the stakes are a bit bigger than they previously thought.

Exactly. Then, after that, it's present day and shenanigans are happening. We know that the script is described as being "fun" and while I would love to see Mr. Sinister on screen, he isn't "fun" and I think Gambit would really benefit from not touching the superhero vs. supervillain stuff and staying grounded. Heist movies are super fun.

Yeah, wasn't the rumor that singer wanted Tatum for x3 (before he left and the script was completely changed...boo!)

Agree that the guild stuff should be smaller flasbacks and stick more to the present. Would love sinister to be the villian and to be a sort of anti-Xavier. Seemingly kind, English telepath/doctor who wants to 'help' but turns out to be a total psycho instead. Darn, now that I've written thT
at it won't happen...  :D

Tatum auditioned for Gambit in X-men 3 but because of the script change they took Gambit out.

Tatum then was approached for Gambit again in X-men Origins Wolverine but was unable to do so because he was tied to G.I.Joe contract and couldn't get out.

3rd time lucky for Tatum. I feel like this guy was meant to play Gambit and I can't wait to see his take on him.

I think the right beat for a Gambit film would be a generally fun film with a dark undertone as that is ultimately how I view the character.  On the surface Gambit is seemingly a care free rogue in the vein of say a Jack Sparrow but underneath it all is the dark secret he is hiding.  I would say being able to balance the two is what will make or break the film IMO.

I think the film should definitely not be too dark. Gambit is a fun loving, funny, free spirit, and making this film too dark would probably make it too heavy. Gambit has no problems with making fun of himself and can cover up many screw ups with comic relief.

The headsock is still a big no-no for me. It's just... I don't know... Wrong!

No problem with the image.  Funny part is ... years ago those colors were the splash page for this site.  I'm liking the image.  It's definitely a back of a card.   ;)

I think the head sock is just old.  And after reading the Asmus/Mann Gambit solo and Gambit doing his thing without the head sock.  It's just preferred now.  While its a classic look for him to have the head sock.  An updated look is most welcome.

And he didn't wear one in ANXF either and I thought he looked great.  Again the art by CdG really made Gambit look great without the head sock.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on July 14, 2015, 05:27:31 PM
Gambit for XTAS - was easier to understand when not referencing himself in third person.  And I think Potter over acted with accent as well.  Yeah, I know, blasphemy.  

And even though English isn't your primary language there are those whose language it is and couldn't understand him.  Any number of things, the register of voice too low, the recording too low, using poor wording to get the idea across.  

Not sure how many retakes was available in the 90's either.  The 90's rejuvenated the animated cartoon.  In the 80's it was done as cheaply as possible and its noticeable.  More flat art as opposed to moving art.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on July 14, 2015, 05:39:10 PM
IMO - the accent should be light.  However, with the film being set in New Orleans - Tatum has to do the accent well enough to be understood and not sound like he's got marbles in his mouth.  It's probably why he's looking so hard for a person to coach him.  He wants it right for the area and I appreciate that as long as all of us can understand him, it will be fine.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Miss Misery on July 14, 2015, 07:30:37 PM
The thing about the accent is that does he want to sound like the comics/TAS, or does he want to be accurate? Someone with a Cajun accent isn't going to be mistaken for European French. He shouldn't have a heavy Cajun accent--he grew up in New Orleans, which has its own accent.

I hate the headsock, but don't mind the XXM look.

CT's accent shouldn't overshadow his performance.

What's funny is.  I never heard a true cajun accent until I was in college, so I went almost 20 years without knowing and thinking that XTAS Gambit was how all cajuns spoke.  lol.

But I think that if he keeps a good southern twang with a mix of french in there, it will be good for a mass audience.  As long as it stays consistent throughout.

But I do agree that it shouldn't overshadow his performance.  I'm excited for each little step we get. 

I'm thinking costume reveal has to be the next step.

The outlet has speculated that Tatum flying down to Comic Con just to take one selfie would not make sense. But there are possibilities that he could have flown down from some other location to San Diego. The location maybe could be a place somewhere in Canada.

Bryan Singer directed “X-Men: Apocalypse” has been shooting in Canada for quite some time now. Singer was to fly directly to San Diego from Canada to promote “X-Men: Days of Future Past- Rogue Cut” while the cast that was also flying with him was to be a surprise. The cast members of the movie including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Olivia Munn amongst others surprised everyone with their presence when they joined Singer on stage. Since the cast has also been shooting for the movie in Canada, chances are even they flew in from the same location.

What proved to be a bigger surprise when Tatum joined the cast and others moments before the selfie was taken. Flying in just to take a random selfie seems a bit odd but what if he actually flew in with the cast from Canada?

I do not know. I just think that Tatum wanted to make some hype around Gambit. His shirt is a good example of it.

Flying in to take selfie that will circulated all over the Internet and start some early buzz for his movie, from one of the pop culture events of the year is actually plenty good reason to fly to San Diego.  ;D I would not be against an after credits scene, though. Gambit would be next movie after apocalypse.

Tatum had two reasons to be at San Diego Comic Con. The hateful Eight which is directed by Quentin Tarrentino was having a talk and of course X-men.

He would have went to show support for both and of course gain support and promotion for Gambit.

Well I think you can do that. The whole production seems to be under a guise. I doubt they are using the real names for casting call. Comic fans are too knowledgeable and savy, we'd be able to deduce the whole plot by just knowing who's involved.

It'll only be set in the 90s if the movie following Apocalypse is. Fox wants a connected movie universe and imo wouldnt just let Tatum's Gambit to exist on its own island seperated from the rest. I suspect it'll be linked to the current cast or part of a re-reboot with the younger of the last cast ala Paquin, Ashmore, Cudmore, Page etc. (respectively; Rogue, Iceman, Colossus, Kitty). Just my vision of their options.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: purplevit on July 21, 2015, 04:44:04 PM
I think the same. Cudmore is not Colossus anymore so I think Rogue, Iceman and others would be recasted too.

That is exactly what I thought.  I'm thinking it could be a bit origin, bit heist movie, maybe have some Sinister in there.  Possibly set up the Massacre.  Should be interesting. 

I am glad they are going with the Guild stuff.  It truly separates Gambit from the typical hero and gives these audiences who don't know the character, something unique to take away.

Headsock, guilds, possible Sinister.  Yeah.  I'm digging this.

 I never thought Sinister when I read Louis ( Louis– Male, any ethnicity, 40s-50s. Elegant and intelligent. An appealing entrepreneur with an unexpected
dark side and or Fritz– Male, any ethnicity, 40s – 50s. A professional thief. Charismatic con-artist. Warm hearted but untrustworthy) I read it and thought both could be Jean-Luc LeBeau depending on how they go with the character. But I was wondering if it could be Marius Boudreaux instead of Sinister. Just a thought
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on July 22, 2015, 12:45:16 PM
I didn't think Sinister either - I also gravitated to Jean-Luc for the Louis part. Too early to tell.

I had to share this and Don - don't bust on me.  This tumblr is making moola with calendars and books by pairing these two things together.   ;)  Oddly enough my friend, I am not alone in my like.

My first reading was possible Jean Luc for both.  But the more I read over it.  I don't know if it's my own personal bia because Sinister is my favorite villain, but I think of the Gambit Weapon X Origin story where young Remy does a job for the Guild which Sinister hired them for.  I think it's just a great plot twist too.  Sinister & Gambit have such untapped story potential.

My guess is that they've changed their mind and are going big with it to try and position Gambit as one of the main movie universe character, now that Jackman and Lawrence's times are coming to an end.  Probably Gambit and Deadpool.  

In some ways great because more Gambit and more exposure for the character. Cool. In other ways though, more chance to screw it up with all the Fox suits involved.  I'm just trying not to think about it.  In my head we're getting a Gambit film and that's it.  I'll cross any other bridge that comes along when we get to it.  

Edit: read the article after I posted that, just what I was saying!

I wonder what that last $309 are for... A cheese platter, perhaps?

I love the fact that they making sure at least 30 million will be going to Louisianian employees. He'll probably make a quarter of the budget back in that tri-state area alone. Like the angle of authenticity he's playing.

Also annoys me that most of this movie may be in the swamp...

From what I read, they said with his two last big movies, Fox wanted to cut the budget nearly in half from the 150 and he would rather direct his own film if that were the case. Apparently it's due to the budget now.

Also, the movie is still going to move forward regardless of Tatum or not.

The one positive thing about this is the fact that soooo many people are talking about it. And a huge majority still wanting a Gambit film. Even people asking who would make a better Gambit. So the demand for the Cajun is in.

The bad news is that, think of what you will of Tatum, he loves the character and I can't think of anyone who would try their best as much as him. I hope he tweets when he gets back from the jungle, "Everyone can relax. Gambit has returned."

How many actor's are an active producer of the film they are in? A cut to the budget effects him and his company. Most of the time an actor is also producing, its because of the studio. Typically its a smaller studio, which gives the actor a lot of leverage. Not the case. This is a juggernaut in the form of Fox. Negotiations can be tricky because in the end, they don't really need him if push comes to shove... I personally don't want to lose Tatum.

His name has been removed from IMDB Gambit 2016.

Fingers crossed we get an up date about this soon.

If Tatum is no longer on board, how the hell will they make this film work?

Brining back Kitsch would be a horrible choice and let's be honest a step backwards. Tatums star pull has gone if he does leave.

If they bring in a fresh new face, it will be a bigger gamble.

It's sadly a waiting game now. It's such a shame as pre-production was going so well but actors dropping out can happen. My only hope is we still get a Gambit film.

Tatum leaving the role does increase the risk or at least the perception of more risk moving on without him.

i just can't see Channing Tatum dropping out of Gambit?!?

After watching the interviews I saw of him, talking about Gambit with so much passion and love for the character. Making sure they take there time with it and not to rush making the film. Even his appearance at comic con to promote the film shows him pushing the film out there.

He wouldn't just quit so easily because of a small disagreement.

What I would like to see him to do on social media, is to debunk these rumours with something of a Gambit tease.

I don't know, something like Ryan Reynolds dressed as Deadpool in front of Gambit, facing the camera and we can see the back of Gambits trench coat and head sock, holding cards in one hand maybe  ;D

something to calm the situation and show support for Gambit. Let's be honest if everything goes well, these two characters will eventually meet down the line.

Yeah, I'm not sure I'm really buying him dropping out of Gambit, he was (from what I gather) one of the driving forces in getting the movie started. Plus this is a role that he could really sink his teeth into in order to take his acting skills to a more serious level. Gambit character has enough gravitas that it's a nice step up from the lighter stuff he's been involved in with. It's a good progression. Oh and he also stands to make a large quantity of cashola. My guess is that maybe he's clashing with people on certain elements of the story, character or any such details and that's it. I really think he could pull off a good gambit despite maybe not 'resembling' Remy enough, people are just spoiled because Hugh Jackman is basically a totally spot on wolverine look alike. One thing I really like about Tatum is that he has that athletic ability that you know Remy exudes naturally

time for a tinfoil hat moment, What if this is a distraction not from FF stuff previously mentioned but to hide the fact he is going to appear in Apocalypse and he's filming scenes now, what a big surprise that would be him showing up no one knowing. Unlike Antman blowing its Falcon surprise in its tv promotion a week before the films release

IGN's podcast was okay.  The only real point and probably more accurate is the money.  I do think money is a factor and it could be the reason for the whole hoopla. 

In the wrap article, there was screen tests - wonder how much if any ... of that factored in.

And that $150 million budget. That's exciting too. And I think it was a stunt. It was a really good way to test the audience. I saw a lot of people who didn't want Tatum as Gambit wanting him back because they would rather have him as Gambit than no Gambit movie at all.

Most exciting of all, he signed a Jackman type deal to make him the face of the franchise. I feel like this is what is the biggest win of all. Maybe it does force Marvel to give the character some push in the comics. The character they have tried to bury for so long has persevered through his hardcore fans and now his most famous fan has a movie out of it. Suck it, Marvel. Haha.

I just remember there were specific articles that mentioned it was confirmed and all parties had agreed in principal on the fact he would produce and star in it but there was never an article I saw that said a contract was actually signed.

It's not that infrequent in entertainment.  Like the recent Mayweather and Pacquiao fight had a bunch of threats of the fight being canceled days before the fight because the lawyers for the two camps were arguing over the final agreement.

Even reading from the original source (The Wrap), they never confirmed Channing was completely out, all it stated was that someone close to the production said that “something was up” …and made it sound more dramatic than what it really was. Then pretty much everyone else jumped the gun and assumed the movie was getting cancelled based on that comment, CBR even did piece on ‘Gambit’s Most Embarrassing Moments’

Anyway, this whole thing gave the movie a lot more publicity.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on August 02, 2015, 02:17:17 PM
CBR can't help itself and go the route of mocking.  Especially when it comes to Gambit.  But at least there were a couple of positive articles there in regards to Gambit.

The covers article and the open letter was good stuff.  The embarrassing stuff wasn't needed but ... whatever.  

Now, they're silly looking because of over reacting. LOL

And in this case, pub for Gambit.  You are right on that.  ;)

I'm hearing Léa Seydoux is up for lead actress. I think that's a good cast, most likely Belladonna. Not a fan of Belladonna in the comics, but then again she never really had a lot of development, and the movies are always going to have a different take. One great thing about Belle is that she's just as unpredictable as Gambit (perhaps even more so).

I hope it is the role of Bella Donna.  Mostly because for Gambit's film, I want it to be about him and his history.  I don't want skipping it (his history) because of any other character.  His history is awesome and can translate well to the big screen.  ;D

I'm happy they will make the movie, and that tatum is so passionate about taking the role as gambit, but his face :/ I'm sorry, I'm not really that shallow in reality but gambit has always been thin and athletic, even if he loses weight, his face is just not gambits, it’s just too wide or something, I can’t describe it.
Credit to tatum for loving the character but I would have chosen a different actor if it was possible and still been able to make a gambit movie with Fox. Sorry, but it’s how I feel
At this point I hope the script is REALLY good to be able to get people to like the movie
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on August 03, 2015, 11:52:34 AM
I guess we'll see how he does, he's still working on slimming down.   :)

We can pick all sorts of actors that look more like Gambit but none of them really worked to get the part like Tatum has done.  IMO - We're getting a film because of Tatum - not because Fox thought lets do a Gambit film.   

This makes me think of Robert Downey Jr and Iron Man.  I had reservations about RDJr playing Tony Stark.  I thought - only two ways, flop or hit.  Turns out, RDJr was great as Iron Man.  While we can nit pick his 2 sequels.  He was key in the Avengers movie.  When they recast Iron Man, he will be a hard act to follow.  It won't be like Spider-Man or Batman where film execs just look for someone to play the part.

Yeah I see this happened many of times when certain actors take on the roles of famous superheros, Micheal Keaton had a huge backlash when he was cast as Batman to the point where batman fans were making petitions to WB to recast the role, and I believe everyone beloved Jackman at the time he was cast as Wolverine, they couldnt see it, but now...well I dont need to finish what happened now do I?

But I hope Tatum had in his contract to be shirtless for about 15 mins in the movie, we as the fangirls demand it!

As far as the movie goes, I want it to be good and successful.  While the studio has some risk, Tatum does too.  Or he wouldn't have all the "other" financial components in this film.  Thats quite some incentive to make sure its right.  :)

It's a big budget for a Gambit origin movie. Either there's a Guilds storyline of a larger (worldly) scale, or maybe the involvement of Mr Sinister (the number 3 X-Villain) with some Marauders. I can't help think that there will be a couple of well known mutants involved in it.

There will be a new take on it, no doubt. They may even be creating completely new characters that aren't in the comics, which they already are with those character names that were listed a few weeks back. I'm all for that, I'd rather see new characters that suit the storyline rather than throwing in some fan-favourites that are unjustified like they did in 'Wolverine' ...unless of course these fan-favourites have a purpose, then that's fine.

Not sure if this is the right place. . .  So forgive me. 

With all this talk of his power being lame and having free time on hand. . . .  I figured I'd look what the science says. . .  I figured I'd start with the maddest incarnation New Sun.  Who has the greatest control over turning potential energy into kinetic and making stuff go boom.  I assumed he'd be able to release 100% of the energy locked in matter (seeing as he has absolute control over kinetic energy).  So looked that up apparently the max theorized energy in 1 kg of matter (Sorry metric) has 21. 5 megatons of energy (he maximum theoretical yield from 1 kg of matter by converting all of the mass into energy (by mass–energy equivalence, E = mc2) yields 89. 8 petajoules or the equivalent of 21. 5 megatons of TNT.  No practical method (He's a mutant who needs practical) of total conversion exists today, such as combining 500 grams of matter with 500 grams of antimatter.  However, in the case of proton–antiproton annihilation, approximately 50% of the released energy will escape in the form of neutrinos, which are almost undetectable. Electron–positron annihilation events emit their energy entirely as gamma rays. ). . .  or very roughly 2 Hiroshima bombs in a 1. 8 g playing card. . .  (kind of see why he wanted to Nerf that down. . .  accidentally fully charge a card and boom no more New Orleans). 

Then I figured well lets look at his ability to speed up objects what kind of damage could that inflict.  No reference is made as to how much he can speed up things.  So I assumed with his power being kinetic energy (speed of electrons all that) I'd link it to the speed of electricity which runs between 50-99% the speed of light (300,000,000m/s).  I settled on 70% of the max which is about the speed electricity moves through cables.  At that speed a 10 gram object would impact with the force of 220,500,000,000,000 joules or 0. 05 megatons (about 3 Hiroshima bombs)(I got that massive number with this formula 0. 5*0. 01kg*210,000,000m/s^2, Kinetic energy formula is joules = 1/2 * Mass (KG) * m/s^2)  I started to figure out why he doesn't use a kinetically charged rail gun rifle effort. . . . .  So new son = stupidly op. . .  At this point of stupidly over powerful I tried to figure out normal gambit. . . .

Using a 1. 8 g playing card carrying the force of 100 grams of tnt which works out at 372,333 joules per gram (Based on 6,702 joules per 1 g of tnt).  I worked out he only has 0. 000000414% of new sons max potential. . . .  I wonder if he's holding back. 

After this I gave up as the math was crazy and the idea of a man hauling around nuclear bomb equivalent cards / bullets seemed op even by comic standards.  I decided current Gambit is plenty powerful and if he really wanted well we are all screwed. 

Seriously can anyone tell me how much of an objects potential energy Gambit can tap.

all of its potential, but Gambit is at like 40% power , 100% is New Son where he can manipulate time and space, fly , charge organic and inorganic matter and other stuff, as for the speeding up of objects Gambit cant do that, his abilities and speed are above average human because of his training with the Guilds from a young age, Gambit has never shown that his powers gave him superhuman agility and dexterity because even without powers he still had those

It was alluded on the basketball court issue that his powers helped some with agility.  However, I don't think it was really referenced after that.

As for his powers.  He's pretty op when at full power, but he is one of those characters that has never relied on his powers.  Yes, he has them, knows how to use them, but they aren't a crutch for him.  I think that is an important thing to note.  He's very self aware of the damage he can cause with them. 

The movie might take a more offensive nature with his powers, guess we'll see.

yup he has alot of powers that have been alluded to and never again mentioned or picked up by another writer or made cannon, yet wiki and marvel bio page add them in as cannon yet he has never used them, remember when he could see the future when he was blind that got dropped real quick but it happened on panel in continuity so theres more proof for it than any other powers alluded to, i always too the basket ball court as Rogue being made because they were losing and the fact that even powerless he is still as fast and agile, She says that Gambits powers give him natural agility how do they know if he is using them or not. i swear im not being a smart ass its a genuine question does Natural agility not mean like normal agility like nothing super?

It's the verbiage used to talk about his agility, when she says his powers give him natural agility.  Does it mean, it adds to what he already knows or has been trained to do? Or is the question not really agility but stamina.  He can continue to rely on his normal/natural agility that is fueled by his powers for length of time.  I dunno.  

We don't really get to see the full use of anything he can do, outside of the charging of cards.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: M on August 05, 2015, 01:55:27 PM
I always thought his powers did augment his natural agility and speed and also somehow give him the sense of when things are incoming. I mean he did have a bullet catch moment in x-men #1, and in marvel that may classified 'peak' human it's pretty close, but add that in to the upside bball shot that couldn't be blocked by wolverine plus holding his own in a hand to handish fight with skrull Gladiator in Uncanny #277 and also Fabian's Gambit #1 where he counts the bullets and understands they all missed makes me pretty feel safe in saying his powers do give him a definitive edge when added to his Guild Training. Of course this was all in his heyday, most recently he was killed by some ordinary gangster so..........



On a side note not that surprised to hear Tatum is on board with this though the 150 million budget does make me a little nervous since I don't want to rely on CGI for this movie, I woulda thought they could make it for half and given Fox's meh track record it does make me somewhat trepidatious but hopefully all the extra money will be put to good use.

I didn't watch Blue is the Warmest Colour after I read an interview where Seydoux said she seriously regretted doing such explicit sex scenes in the film since she thought afterwards they were unnecessary and she was ashamed or something along those lines, but I heard she's a great actress.  So I'd hope for her really, if she can act and do action films then that's awesome! I figured that's one of the main reasons First Class and DOFP worked, Fassbender and Macavoy being really good actors.  Plus I think Tatum needs somebody good to work off and maybe encourage him to act well.

I agree with cc008. They should all be speaking in the same sort of accent. Whether they all go Cajun or "southern" will be another story. But the fact that in the casting call, they are looking for actors who can speak French, that's a sign they are defintely doing French Quarter accents. Which is exciting.

I'm super excited with the direction of the film. And I may be naïve, but I think Tatum will do a good job with the accent.

Ask a random native English speaker to repeat a French sentence... Utter horror!  If they can get that right, and have them all have more or less the same accent, there's hope.

My fear from the announcement of this project was that they'd be in NOLA. I'm worried that they won't be able to find enough actors to pull off the same accent. I'd rather they all not do it, than force it.

I actually didn't mind the southern accent, especially after reading that he had difficulty with the Cajun and settled for a southern one. And I do agree people are going to complain no matter what--mark my words, if CT does an impeccable accent, we'll still hear from fanboys and -girls b***hing that it's not like the cartoons.

in the leaked version i coulda sworn his accent sounded better but it ended up being like his Texan accent on FNL, i think he got slated for not trying to do a Cajun having said thatTatum keeps doing swamp Cajun as seen on the Gator hunters tv show on the History channel, Gambit should sound more french than redneck/hillbilly/ swamp person which is how Tatum sounds anytime ive hear him try it

You're so right about the leaked version. It is definitely different from the final version. Better too. They must've had him come back for dubbing it.

I always felt that Gambit's accent should be more of a mix between a French and a southern accent. It's hard to explain, but you should definitely heard the French undertone, but not like the French, or Canadian French, would speak English. A little bit more than slightly but not over the top. And since he is from the South, he should have a bit of that Southern drawl... ish...

I think it should be subtle, not the unintelligible mess that was XTAS...

I really think Remy Lebeau will be wearing "contacts" every so often (X-Men films are grounded in realism and I can't imagine someone being able to walk around with red eyes, no matter how handsome they are), so Channing Tatum won't have to wear full eye contacts most of the time or have to use CGI which can be tricky and expensive. Covering his eyes with shades all the time isn't conducive for acting. Which is why Captain America's face is exposed 90% of the time, and we get to see Iron Man's face under the helmet.

It's practical. Full eye contacts are irritating, I'm sure they'll want to limit their use as much as possible. But perhaps CGI has come further in the past few years?
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: M on August 16, 2015, 04:45:41 PM
I've always felt that what really works here is that his eyes have a normal color unless someone is really looking at them and then they see that red glint which becomes more pronounced the more power he uses. Of course, I've always liked the idea that somewhere along the way he learns to use his ability to 'charm' most people into not actually paying attention to his eye color which could produce some extremely interesting visuals in a movie. I think the former is a more simple and easy to deal with premise but the latter idea is richer if they really know how to do it right.
I do think they definitely need to keep some aspect of the eye color though because it does tell the audience he is indeed a 'mutant' in regards to more than just abilities.

Shifting gears into the prophecy spiel the Gambit series is probably a good time for Fox to introduce magic/witchcraft into their universe, I mean they already have Doom, in the future they're going to have Magick and the new mutants in it might be smart to lay some groundwork for it in a Gambit origin flick.

You know, Gambit typically wears glasses when he's out in public and not on a job for a reason.

He doesn't wear the glasses when he -wants- to draw attention to himself.

In a world where superheroes and mutants are a known quantity, having oddly colored eyes isn't as attention grabbing as, say, having blue skin/fur. I really hope they don't go with the 'world is ignorant about mutants' in the story.

I'd say it's a close bet, at this point. She's got the offer, and she has no real reason to not take it. Unlike Ferguson, who's career skyrocketed with Rogue Nation, it would be kind of a waste for her considering there's talks of her being able to front her own franchise. Also, Swedish people apparently view comics as being for children, unless it's political satire.

Bella Donna was created by Scott Lobdell and Jim Lee, and first appeared in 1992's "X-Men" #8. She's closely connected with Gambit, with the characters knowing each other since childhood and sharing a subsequently complicated relationship of being both lovers and (given her status as a member of the Assassins' Guild) enemies. Like Gambit, Bella Donna is also a mutant, with powers of astral projection and plasma blasts from the artical

Well him being married to Bella is a spoiler because we don't know the direction the movie is going to take with respect to that point as no movie borrows from the source material 100% so I suspect they want to keep it under wraps for now.

As for her being a mutant, I wouldn't be surprised if they made a lot of the Thieve's and Assassin Guild members mutants or super powered as from a spectacle and special effects perspective, the more people with powers the better.  If this really has a 150 million budget then they are going to need a lot more people with powers than just Gambit and it's quite easy to turn the TG and AG rivalry into some sort of super power rivalry where perhaps the TG has mutants while the AG has individuals that got their powers via other means or where both factions got their power via other means but then have a few people that have powers because they are mutants and hence are viewed as outcasts.

In any event, I think there is a lot of room to flesh out the TG and AG more than what was in the comics and would be interested in seeing a fresh take on it rather than just a straight up copy of the source material.

Well, not everyone has to be a mutant. A lot of the thieves and assassins gained supernatural ability through tithing and magic. Buy I agree, that $150m has to go somewhere. Perhaps that's the whole budget including advertising (that would cut out about 10m)?

Maybe they plan to do a lot of on locale filming? Gambit's an international thief. He doesn't limit himself to the US. Besides, the area of New Orleans Gambit comes from was heavily effected by Katrina. Seeing as Tatum plans on doing as much business there as possible, the place will need face-lift, if not just built up entirely. You don't need to be in NOLA to use a green screen, so I expect more practical backdrops.

Not saying everyone is a mutant.  My point is I suspect there were be far more super powered individuals than the TG and AG that were in the comics and you could play up the conflict between the two groups more if one side had more supes and the other side had more mutants as it becomes a microcosm of the overal tension between super powered humans and mutants.

Thieves and Assassins members as mutants could work. It links perfectly to the X-Men movies and it'll make the characters a lot more interesting.
For instance, if they bring in Julian, rather than having a campy sword fight, they could power him up and do something a lot more engaging.

I think this is a very good casting. From reading reports from Variety and Hollywood Examiner, and the like, their only reservation about her was wondering if she could pull off a Cajun accent. And that's why she wasn't cast right away. She must have blown them away considering they are putting a lot of stock into the accents.

I am excited. I think she is going to play the role perfectly.

Yep, I agree with that. It could very well be a plot point in the film and I'm sure they also realize that their audience won't necessarily know that fact or look it up before hand.

Yeah, hope it's mostly filmed in New Orleans. It would be very smart to film it on location for the film's atmosphere and budget. Louisiana offers a pretty substantial tax break which is why many film there and in Cleveland. Unfortunately, last month it was voted to reduce the tax credits in Louisiana. It's probably still worth it for budget reasons.

Yeah for me I wouldn't go overboard with locales.  New Orleans, maybe Paris or England if Candra or Sinister are involved and to make that the international head of the respective Guilds but wouldn't go too far beyond that.  If the movie shows his exile then I suppose he would end up in other US cities but those are usually easier and keep to recreate without having to go on location.

I totally agree with the sentiment but I still don't think I can trust Fox to deliver something like that as of right now.

However I agree that perhaps we will see a power uppage within the story, I'm really not sure it's neccessary but I do like the idea of Julian being a mutant or having a power set very much. It would set up the conflict as a lot more serious and is also an area where the script has a lot of room to play since Gambit's origins are very much still vague to this very day.

@Donpricetag
Love this idea that it doesn't have to be mutant powers, it would play very much into the New Orleans setting if they go the route you are thinking.

Well if the movie does get beyond Gambit leaving New Orleans (ie it ends with his exile and the fight with Julian) then I would think Julian would have to be powered up in some way.

Im cool with her being a mutant, I just dont want them overdoing it. A movie like this needs some subtly, and nothing helps an action flick like a good segment(s) of hand to hand combat. Not every movie can look like Born Identity or Winter Soldier in terms of choreography, but one that centers around highly trained assassins and thieves undoubtedly trained to at least be able to defend themselves against, if not beat an assassin, it fits perfectly. Who ever did the last aforementioned movies need to be a part of this movie.

Bella needs to be kick ass and deadly dangerous , one of my favorite Gambit descriptions of her is this "Remy always loved her laugh, equal parts lust for life and threat of Danger", a bit further in the dialog theres this gem "He'd love to chat whit his ex-wife, but cant since Bella Donna would kill him before the word hello passed his lips"

Well if they go the power route, I would want to have it be along the lines of Ninja type level powers you saw in anima of Japanese manga.  Stuff like invisibility, powers of misdirection, super agility, durability, etc.  Like I remember Ninja Scroll where you had Emi Shinohara who was immune to poisons and was the Imperial food taster and so her body was toxic to the point that anyone who so much as kissed her would die.

Point being it should be powers that would aid them in actually carrying out whatever role they have in the TG or AG.

Shared Universe stuff.
Quote
GAMBIT
In an interview with MTV, X-movie universe producer Simon Kinberg talked about the shared nature of "Gambit," "Deadpool" and the "X-Men" films.

“The idea is that we’ve sort of reset the timeline after ’Days of Future Past’ in some ways, and if not erased, certainly allowed for change from ’X1,’ ’2,’ ’3,’ everything from ’Days of Future Past’ forward, 1973, everything we set now becomes canon,” he said. “So the ’Gambit’ movie, the ’Deadpool’ movie, will exist in a world that acknowledges whatever happened in ’Days of Future Past’ and moving forward. Doesn’t mean they’ll always interact with those characters, obviously, it’s not like every movie has all the characters, but they all have to exist within the same rules.” He then added, “There will be interplay between different characters in different movies.”

He also spoke about how he keeps all these films and their place in the new canon straight. “I don’t have it up on a wall, but I have it on my computer, and I have it sort of tattooed on my brain now too,” Kinberg said. “Nothing external, so that if I get knocked over the head, no one can read it. It’s literally behind my eyelids. But yeah, we have a clear sense of the directions we want to take them in and in my my mind at least, how we could start to cross-pollinate sort of with those characters that have their standalone movies.”

Joss Whedon didn't exactly do that great on Avengers 2 and I can't even tell you who took over Edgar Wright's position on Ant-Man. I guess this is why we haven't heard too much about the film.

I disagree. I cant describe how much I disagree. A director can make the difference between X2 and X3, or Superman Returns and Man of Steel... Batman/ Batman Returns and Batman and Robin.

Please don't take this as trolling, but I can't describe how much I disagree with you. Those movies knew they were changing shifts in direction of tone of the movie. But it's also same affect of The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Same director, two completely different films. DK was brilliant. Every bit. But DKR was a total mess. Total mess. Plot holes. Dragging plot. Pacing issues. Sound and visual issues. People seem to give it a pass because it is Nolan and his first two were brilliant.

And when it comes to this movie in particular, I see it more of what Ant-Man is/was. It is a film that is spearheaded by everyone but the director. It was a cog in the wheel of franchise films. This is a Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin movie who want to direct together and Channing wanted a big name director for the film.

And Wyatt also left because he felt the budget was getting too big. I quite frankly don't want a director who gets distracted by that type of thing. Can't take the heat, step out of the kitchen. I am ready to see who they are going to add in as director, but it's Channing's movie. He will probably get someone who he can work with.

I guess we should start proposing directors now.

Matt Reeves - Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

John Behring - Multiple episodes of Arrow

Thor Freudenthal - Multiple episodes of Arrow (he directed the mid-season finale of season three)

Christopher McQuarrie - Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Craig Zisk - Multiple episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Sylvain White - The Losers

David O. Russell - Silver Linings Playbook

If this list seems a little odd, keep in mind that Captain America: Winter Soldier was made by two people who were most known for directing sitcoms and look at how good that movie was. Just because they don't do a lot of action movies or are stuck with television doesn't mean they can't make a great movie.

The film was suppose to start shooting in November but it looks like filming is now moving to March 2016 as they are apparently trying to shoot it around Mardi Gras which I suppose makes sense.  So probably not going to have much Gambit news for a while if filming has been pushed back 4 months.  I suspect the October 2016 release is likely to move as well if this is true and perhaps if the budget is increasing they are planning for this to come out during the Christmas/New Years time frame or Feb/March 2017.

If Jackman is really leaving then perhaps the increase in budget is because they are trying to invest more into this film to turn it from an Ant-Man style budget to one more comparable to a summer blockbuster so they can position Gambit as the replacement for Wolverine.  That was part of the rumor as to why Tatum's deal got held up is because he wanted to be compensated more for replacing Jackman.  It probably also may mean more super powered guest appearances to showcase more summer blockbuster special effects.

I want to see this film show the underworld of New Orleans.

I don't want it to be just light and fluffy, it needs to have a balance of light moments/humour and show dark serious moments.

If you put Gambit in the real world, let's be honest no one would like this guy.

filming during Mardi Gras is an idiotic move, if it was staged you can control everything doing the real thing production is dealing with noise they have no control over and drunk people which is a disaster, this sounds bad

After seeing Deadpool, I hope we at least get to have Gambits costume.

I think it was the Romy fans hoping for their "beautiful ship" to made real on the big screen or some BS. Rogue won't be in this movie and I suspect that when she next appears, she won't be played by Paquin.

Rogue shouldn't be played by Paquin.  Her influence on Rogue's character has been awful. Yes, I know - the script and all that but still - she was not a good rendition.

I don't want Rogue in Gambit's film, at least not the first one.  Gambit should be established on his own.  Which is what is needed before expanding on his universe.  And by then, find a better actress to play Rogue. Or better yet, a better script for Rogue's depiction.

This is such non-news--why would she appear? [sarcasm]Oh, right. Because you can't have Gambit without her, no matter how flat her characterization.[/sarcasm] I think Anna gets more blame than she deserves for movie!Rogue; she's an otherwise good actress, but was given a thankless role.

Actually, I take part of the above back, since I'm not sure how many are aware that it's an origin movie. for some fans, Gambit and Rogue just go together--they can't imagine one without the other. I think I've been so sour on Rogue and Romy in the comics that any suggestion of her/them puts me in a bad mood. I need to keep reminding myself (among other things) that some fans interested in this movie either don't know/don't care about the comics and want to see a favorite pairing.

Was there some sort of rumor going around the net that she would? I guess it makes sense... The vast majority of X-Men fans were fans of the animated series... Thinking of Gambit in that context does bring Rogue to mind in the general sense, its kind of natural the common fan would believe Rogue would be in it, in a vacuum (the movie goers actually do exist in a vacuum, no comics, no boards, no bias just nostagia). They haven't seen Gambit in almost 20 years, if you don't count Wolverine origin's or video games. But I didn't think it was getting around enough for this to have to be addressed. I told you guys... Fox is going to want that Romy money eventually.

I've seen fangirls on tumblr straight up get salty at the fact that Rogue wasn't gonna be in the movie. For them when it comes to Gambit, Rogue has to be there too. Otherwise what's the point.

Maybe a new rumor started up when all the stuff with the shoot date getting pushed back came out and they figured that an increased budget must mean that Rogue would be appearing somehow. Which is a huge leap in logic, but I wouldn't put it past someone to go there.

Speaking of a huge leap in logic, they did screw with the timelines so like they said, a lot of characters will be born sooner or later than they were in the original timeline, but we saw a glimpse into where this new timeline ends up and we clearly see Kitty, Colossus (even though he's in Deadpool and I'm starting to believe Deadpool takes place mid 90s), Iceman and yes, Rogue in no more than their early 30s.

So the idea of Rogue being born earlier and getting a new younger actress due to it, is out of the question... From a logical standpoint. In the end Fox may do whatever they want. I still think the only way we get Rogue and other X-Men in a future movie with Gambit being of similar age is time travel. Whether accidental or on purpose.

With the idea of creating their own connected universe ala MCU, Fox is pretty much going to have to handcuff Gambit to the current X-Men movies thus be stuck in the 80s or 90s for quite some time. Perhaps Gambit takes place several years after Apocalypse? But that would invalidate Fox's new young cast. Some of these kids are actually kids and wouldn't be able to pull off being anymore than 19-20 years of age.

Well, Xavier and mags are both suppose to be like fifty in apocalypse and they're not even trying to make them look older... And if Scott and Jean are teenagers now in 83, then that means they are supposedly like sixty in that 'future' shot (which obviously they don't remotely look like). The biggest age swaps so far have been Emma, angel and jubilee. Now jubilees was only a cameo so we can not count her. But Emma and angel were both 'noticeable' and their ages were completely changed. So they are playing loose with the aging, but it remains to be seen if they switch anyone else.

I'm warming to the idea that it may be nice if he's not in the same time line as rogue and the others. It may be interesting to explore the character in a new way. His origin was never truely filled out and Fox could change his interactions to match a new team and give us something we haven't seen yet. If well written yes it's a big if it could be a whole new story and miss out the angst of a traditional romy retelling esp Given how badly it ended. And that as a romy fan.

Xavier alright, they could say he's really smart and got his Ph.D. at 21-22. Mags though was like ten in WWII, which was twenty years before first class. He has to be pushing thirty. And mystique well they can say she's whatever age they want.

Agreed.

Also, according to sources, Rupert Wyatt left the Gambit film due to Channing Tatum wanting more input because he knows how the character would act in certain situations. And Wyatt left due to not having his full vision carried out. I have to say, C-Tates really does love the character. Lol. So the next director better be willing to work with Channing. Hopefully his passion gets carried through in his acting. Lol.

This is a recent article that is being published about the film. Another article that is adding/fuelling to the negativity talk.

I maybe over reacting but it would be nice to see a small tease, like an image of one of Gambit solo comics on a table that may hint at the script or some cards on a table.

Little things like that will tease the fans with excitement, leading up to filming.

It will also peak their interests and keep the film in a positive light.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on September 30, 2015, 09:43:50 PM
I didn't get anything negative from that article. It was all about how Rupert Wyatt has ditched on movies because he's afraid of messing up and making a bad one. THR never said the Gambit movie would be bad, but that studios are hesitant in going for Wyatt's vision when they often already have their own and rather than find a way merge them both, he walks.

He walked away from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Equalizer, and an unrealized movie. Really this situation is not all that different than Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man. Wright had his vision and Disney had their own. Nothing jived, so he walked.

Direcor Rupert Wyatt has been largely mum about his high-profile exit from 20th Century Fox's Gambit film. Blaming it on scheduling conflicts, Wyatt backed out of the project in mid-September.

Now, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wyatt commented on his departue from Gambit.

"It's not necessarily acrimonious," said Wyatt. "The studios, with these big movies, have very specific visions of what they want. They don't necessarily want an auteur who's going to try to reinvent the franchise. Of course the studios would love it if a director did what they want, when they want, but it doesn't always work out."

According to the article from THR, Wyatt was reluctant to sign

Does this not bother anybody else?  Fox has a horrible reputation for meddling in it's films to the point that the director just gives up and makes a piece of trash, if they don't walk  before filming.  I'm really hoping they don't ruin Gambit, and F4 as an indicator does not bode well. 
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: remydat on October 07, 2015, 10:40:54 AM
Matthew Vaughn left DOFP and that movie turned out fine.  F4 failed because the director was a tool.  Not because Fox studios said he was but because the entire cast has said so.  At one point there were reports he and Miles Teller almost got into a fist fight.  So I wouldn't use F4 as any sort of indicator of things unless the Gambit film ends up with a director that is also a tool.

Further, no studio is going to help bankroll a $100 million film and not meddle.  Would you turn over that kind of money to someone and not have any input into the process.  At the end of the day, the studio is going to have a vision and the director is going to have a vision, and Tatum is going to have a vision, etc.  The trick is to have people involved that can balance all the different ideas and make it work.  That's how it is on all films and better to find out now that a Director may not be on the same page as the studio or the star rather than after filming starts.

If they could get Cranston to be an overarching villain to start with Gambit and then move over to x movie they would be idiots not to -it is fox- so I guess anything is possible.

If the next bit of news is the film has been moved to 2017, that's another update the media and fans are going to make negative about the film.

I wish someone from Fox or even Tatum himself would talk about Gambit or start teasing us with a photo.

Start bringing some positive news and excitement to the film.

I think it's almost certain the release date gets moved as they pushed filming back to March 2015 which makes it highly unlikely for an October 2016 release.  I would think Christmas 2016 is the earliest it can be released by more than likely it's probably going to be March 2017

As for the movie I'm quite happy to let it go back burner for a bit, SPECTRE's first sequence is supposed to be one of the best scenes in all of Bondage so let's hope they can use the time to really make some beautiful mardi gras shots esp as we wont look for a Remy return to Orleans til a 3rd movie at the earliest.

Not to mention he's been brought up in several Hollywood podcasts I listen to. Wheres there is smoke... But it might die down just as quick as it sparks.

Fun fact... Limen also directed Mr and Mrs Smith as well as Jumper. A lot of people didn't like Jumper, I thought it had potential and the scope of the story was awesome, though the lead actor could have been better.

It's just what we need. It's a winning formula i.e.  White Collar.

Sounds a good start for the character. It suits him and is the perfect way to introduce him to a new audience.

I'm curious if this is the start of Mr.Sinister. Gambit is stealing something for a reason.

If they go the Sinister route I hope Cranston gets the role. He actually wants it. Even if its a different actor portraying Sinister to start, it'd be awesome to see him shapeshift and reveal Cranston as his true form. My wish is that they ground the character as much as possible, don't call him Mr Sinister, but Essex or his whole name if he starts out as a supporting character and not the "big bad".

Sinister isn't a throw away villain. He should be able to stick around and cross over back and forth throughout the franchises. I have high hopes. I just hope the script is good and not forcing too much synergy amongst the shared universe like Marvel is starting to do.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Moonlight Nightmare on November 16, 2015, 07:08:58 PM
Well thank god, I feel like people arent really happy about this movie for a few reasons, one of which not having rogue in it, cause lord knows we cant have something for just the gambit fans and that there are other x-men that deserve it more then Remy....WHICH THEY ARE WRONG
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on November 16, 2015, 07:45:43 PM
Well those two sentiments come from similar sources. The vast majority of people that hear that Gambit's getting a movie, but are disappointed about not having Rogue in it are the 90s fans; the fans that started reading because of the show (small minority), and those who never read but love the X-Men because of the show (the vast majority). The small voices yelling in the crowd "he doesnt deserve a movie" stem from the same fans that didn't like that he was in the show over the likes of Iceman, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Dazzler and Kitty. They have younger acolytes that echo their sentiments, and sadly a few of these became writers who did their own thing, despite a lot of negative fan reaction (a lot of the more damning things they'd do to Gambit would be eventually fixed by the following writer or flat retconned by the editors). In the end it's all very small in terms of the amount of people that will ultimately see the film(s). All they do is piss off producers via cyber harassment, and spook studio types that put too much emphasis on the anonymous internet reaction. Take "Edge of Tomorrow" for example. It turned out to be one of the best movies of the year, but was nearly a financial failure due to preconceptions.

End of the day, its an X-Men movie with a recognizable character being played by an a-lister, directed by a man that has several franchise worthy hits under his belt. It'll be OK.

That Sinister shapeshifter idea has some sweetness. I mean, ideally it's time for Fox to stop following Marvel very soon from now, after AoA what's really left? I mean except to sign a deal with Marvel where the Avengers get beat down? :)

Don-yeah, general movie/cartoon fans don't really care about a lot of the stuff in the comics. Because honestly, some of it doesn't make sense or is just too 'wierd' and sometimes had cover art that they wouldn't be caught dead holding. ;). They don't know about gambit getting shafted by a string of writers who hated the 'the 90's'.  or that rogue got favored because she was a more 'classic' character, who they all wanted to hook up their 'favorite' character. Even if they did know, they'd likely say ' well don't use that in the movie because it's dumb anyway' 'make it more like the cartoon because that was 'better''

Brother from another mother, thats been my question Purp. Traditional red on black? 100% CGI? 50/50? Red contacts? Any shimmering?

My biggest concern right now is Fox. I keep hearing that the script is awesome, but if Fox doesnt let Liman make the movie he wants, he may walk. The fact that it's gotten this far means he and studio have probably reached some common ground. I dont have a problem waiting a bit longer for a good movie, however, I too would like more casting and plot news. I wonder what the costume is going to look like? Any guesses, wishes? Personally, I want a more grounded approach. Clay Mann's design would fit the best IMO.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: purplevit on November 18, 2015, 06:27:30 PM
My first thought was no way they will do red/black eyes all the time.

But look at Deadpool. It seems he will be with burned skin in movie much longer then with normal.

It would be awesome if Liman would be able to make red eyes work for sexy thriller. Mayve they need to change the contrast of eyes through movie, like very red/slightly red but still red

As far as I can see they have options:

1. Red and Black (practical) - This can be done through the use of a full eye contact. Only issue is, they can be very uncomfortable for the actor.
2. Red and Black (CGI) - The can render the eyes to be red and black. Probably wont look the best though.
3. Red and Black (50/50) - A red contact and render the whites of his eyes to black via CGI. In terms of the look, it can go either way.
4. Red and White- Just have red eyes via contacts. It grounds the movie, doesnt take away attention from Tatum's money maker (his face lol)
5. Plain ol eyes, only red in flashes during action scenes (similar to how they worked Storm in the movies)

Once they figure out what they are going to do with the eyes, the next question is, how are they going to treat them. He cant very well walk around in broad daylight in full Gambit glory. The 5th option plays well with this reality. To save on plot holes and Tatum's eyes while staying true to Gambit, they can say his eyes are truly Red on Black but GAMBIT (the character) is wearing special full eye contacts that make his eyes appear to be normal. They can save Tatum (the actor) from wearing the uncomfortable lens' all the time, only having them in possibly at the beginning, a small section in the middle and at the end during the movies climax for whatever final showdown or endgame they may have planned, where he will have lost his coat, his clothes are all torn to shreds, his staff is broken and he's all out of cards (much to the delight of female fandom). If all goes according to plan and Liman is allowed to make a movie he wants, we may have the "Captain America: Winter Soldier" equivalent for Fox's X-Men line.

Post by: Moonlight Nightmare on November 18, 2015, 09:08:35 PM
I can think of a movie that was done during the early 2000s where there were a bit of a drastic change the the eyes,  anyone remember the live action Grinch movie? I'm sure what they might do in for Remy's eyes is do contacts in close up shots, and do digital from far away shots
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: anya on November 18, 2015, 10:38:38 PM
Pretending he has fake contacts in most of the time would be easiest and work the best. Because, yes the  Full contacts are painfully and CGI would probably end up with a 'dead eyes ' bad animation look.

his eyes are red on black so his eyes should look black and glow red when in the shadows or darkness or if they want when he is using his powers, when you think about it you can never tell what an actors or actress's eye colors are in a film unless its a close up shot , we know they have eyes but unless we focus in we don't know or care what color they are, so Gambit should have red on black his eyball should look black

If they don't pretend that Gambit's wearing contact to disguise his eyes, then yeah I think we'll have two to a handful of scenes where Gambit is wearing shades during public scenes in daylight.

Aside from him being my favorite X-Man, I'm looking forward to it for a lot of reasons I'm so looking forward to Deadpool.  The "super hero" genre can really be any genre.  And this will be something new.  Maybe not to the extent of Deadpool "new," but still fresh from the hum drum super hero stuff.

I agree.  While I understand the comparison with Ant Man, I think Gambit is in the element of a heist/thief type.  That is the neat thing about "super hero" film, it can be anything.

Dracula The Untold Story - good, bad or indifferent. It was taking a classic horror type character and making him a hero while still keeping to his "dark" roots as it were.

I think the sexy thriller part is what will set the film apart or at least I think it should set it apart.

more of the same "And lastly, Kinberg gave an update on the hunt for a director for "Gambit," which was kicked off when previous director Rupert Wyatt left the project. "That we have a director in and I don’t know if I’m allowed to say who it is yet because his deal isn’t done, but it’s somebody we’re excited about, and somebody I adore, and hopefully we can make an announcement soon about that. But we’ve been spending a lot of time together -- Channing, [Reid Carolin, Tatum’s producing partner], [screenwriter Joshua Zetumer], the director, and myself -- just working on the script, and we hope to start shooting next spring." With the speed bump, "Gambit's" October 2016 release date will also most likely be bumped back, Kinberg said. "Unless we were to accelerate, it would be really hard to make that date."

I really like Paquin's character and professionalism. She means what she says. I also follow her on twitter and she appears to be one of the most well balanced former kid actors. People make scenarios on her simple statement that she will return IF there is a reason to return and do not consider the rest of the statement which shows her character and her professionalism.

I have seen recently the Rogue cut and I completely agree that the movie was better without her in storytelling terms. However, she could have been written from the beginning as part of the "old team", but thats another discussion.

I have also been disappointed with how Rogue has been portrayed but its not Paquins fault. Its how it has been written. She can do kickass if need be.

PS: Long time no see Guild, being busy with getting used to Germany and PhD research... :)

I dunno... I have a few friends from Bimini, that say "Tru" rather than "through" (and actually my dad's side of the family is from Cat isle, but he's born and raised in Opalocka MIA, so it doest count LOL), but maybe he'd have to add "boy" at the end ;). And remember, I said "if I had to", which means I wouldn't say it sounds Caribbean at all, at least not my first comparison. It just didn't sound Jamaican at all to me. With my wife and her family being from Mo-Bay and mine from St Elizabeth/Kingston, I'm fairly saturated in the accent LOL.

Nah I hear you. It was just that second line of his that had a faint hint of Jamaican to me but yeah I suppose it's probably a situation where for me it would sound a but Jamaican and for you a but Bahamian because for both of us we don't think it sounds like the accent we are most familiar with.

I am more surprised that all this time and it didn't come up before that we both have Caribbean connections.  I was born in Freeport and grew up in Nassau.  I came to the US for college and bounced between living in the US and Europe ever since.  Actually just landed back in the Bahamas for Christmas as all my family is still here.

Both my wife's and I family are all stateside now. Any of our family get together occur here in Miami with acceptation of my uncle in Houston and aunt in Brooklyn. But, yeah that makes sense. I'm just glad the accent he's working on is further along and a bit more developed than what I had thought. For a while I thought he'd just pull a Halle Berry in X2 and just 86 it altogether. But its thick enough where I can almost picture him using it full time.

So Fox is making an X-Force film. I'm assuming colousses and who appears in Deadpool is part of that team. Do you expect someone from X-Force to appear in Gambit?



The idea's been floating around for a while now.  There's a script or 2. A director. Nothing official though. It all depends on what takes place in what time line really.  I feel like X-force will take place in the preset day with Deadpool. Until we find out when Gambit takes place for certain, we won' know.

Here's some concept art. But I agree until more details come out, we won't know much of anything.

I suppose Fox could taking the Avengers approach and make all these characters intertwine in some way with the solo films and stuff.

I don't think Deadpool is "present day". I keep hearing music and seeing props that place it in the 90s. But that could always be Deadpool's qwerkiness because I did see NSW with touch screen phone... So my post is pointless.

But if it is present day, I think that may be the reason Tatum wasn't in Apocalypse. Because that would force Gambit to be in that timeline. I'm sure if Deadpool is going to be the hit Fox wants it to be, they are going to want to cross him over with other potential hits. I was getting used to Gambit being in the early 90s but I'm cool with a present day take. It gives the opportunity to see him alongside a proper X-Men team.

I'd be kind of surprised because it means one of two things; 1. The current younger cast thats portraying the X-Men will only have this movie that's coming out, and then they'll be recast for older characters or just replcaed with the former cast, Femke, Berry, etc. 2. The next couple X-Men films will be set in the past while, Gambit, Deadpool, and X-Force take place in the present. That could get confusing to the general audience.

Deadpool is set in the present day, never go by music in trailers, like you said NSW has a touchscreen phone, the vehicles are present day vehicles, he mentions tweeting and shake weight , plus Reynolds has stated its set in the present day as has the director along with a tidbit that Wade Wilson pre Deadpool will not break the 4th wall

Could see deadpool having prolonged flashbacks (cuz he doesn't age, right?) so some '90's scenes, so present day.

I'd rather have gambit in the present day than stuck in a period piece (I'd also like that rest of the x peeps back in the present time  ;D ) Seriously Xavier and mags 'aged' twenty years in the the past trilogy and they didn't even bother with age make up. Do the same thing with the 'x-kids'.

New Update

Quote
Now that Channing Tatum superhero vehicle and X-Men spinoff film Gambit has a director again, and its star its officially locked in, the project is full steam ahead and still scheduled for an October release.

Speaking to Empire Magazine, producer Simon Kinberg describes Gambit as “a sexy PG-13 heist film,” and says that Tatum will be drawing inspiration from the comics he loves.

“Channing is a big fan of the comic,” Kinberg says, “so the accent, the attitude, the costume in many way, will be in the film. And he’s a character with a complex backstory – we’re playing him as a thief in the film, and that’s a big part of the story.”
Gambit’s had a number of costumes in the comics, so it will be interesting to see how they translate that to film. We’re assuming that, if they’re playing him as a thief, the bright pink breastplate and metal boots will be toned down a bit.

As for Gambit’s backstory, Kinberg may say “complex,” but “convoluted” may be more accurate. Remy’s origin involves rival guild’s vying for favor with an X-Ternal, some kind of godlike, immortal mutant. It’s a bit much for a heist film.

However, if they do want to go the heist route, they should really look towards the most recent Gambit solo comic for inspiration. Written by James Asmus, the series was basically a mutant version of the Thomas Crown Affair.

I hope it's not all based on the new Gambit Stories, they are too squeaky clean. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed them but I would prefer to hear about Sinister and the mutant massacre. I want Gambit to be slight gritty and dark in tone but with light bits. After all he grew up in and around the underworld.

Interesting to see Gambit costume. I think they will use X-treme X-men headsock(half of head covered) + Mann`s purple suit+trenchcoat.
I hope they will make eyes red/black.

Surprised that movie is still scheduled for an October release.

Sinister is a must be. Even is it is just a cameo as Essex.

Its still possible for Sinister to play a part, even if its small. The fact that hes a shape-shifter helps, he can be anybody, but I doubt it with approach they are taking in this one "sexy heist film". The massacre would be nothing but a total mess for this project. This is practically the first time audiences will be seeing Gambit outside of the Origins. The massacre story line would dominate the whole movie, which means no room to set Gambit's world and the supporting characters that make it up. A sequel, following a team movie, that helps put the parts in play may be more realistic (like Age of Ultron set up Cap: Civil War), but in the end I seriously doubt we'll see a Gambit movie based on the

its got Belladonna in it so i doubt itll be based on the recent comics although it might take inspiration from them , its a sexy heist thriller i highly doubt its going to be dark and gritty in tone, itll probably be more like Oceans 11

What do you mean limit? Deadpool is the only modern comic book movie made above pg13, other than Blade, the Sin City movies and Watchmen but none are really considered "modern" to me... The books are written along the lines of PG13, why would they need to exceed that to make it good? I think PG13 is just fine.

Gambit (early - mid 2017)
Wolverine: Old Man Logan (March 2017)
X-Force (late 2017 - early 2018)
X-Men: Untitled (2018) <---- might include Gambit
Deapool 2 (late 2017 - 2018) <---- Deadpool was filmed fairly quick, might be able to do another before 18'.
Gambit 2 (early - mid 2019)

Gambit might even be as far down as June 2017 IMO.

Post by: remydat on January 11, 2016, 03:13:33 AM
From what I heard the Wolverine film is likely ahead of Gambit in the release schedule now since it will be Jackman's final hurrah.  So I think that's the problem right now March 2017 is likely pegged for Wolverine and they probably don't want both it and Gambit coming out close to each other so the question is does Gambit move to Summer 2017 or later to do they put Gambit in March 2017 and move Wolverine back.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on January 11, 2016, 03:40:19 AM
I think they'll move Wolverine back. It's a bit of a risk to drop a movie like Gambit in the Summer when all the really big blockbusters are coming out. GOTG Vol. 2 and Star Wars Episode VIII are coming out in May. Can you see Gambit making any money when it has to go against those two?

The safe bet is to put Wolverine against those movies because it's already established as a series, as well as the fact that there's a lot riding on Gambit compared to Wolverine 3. Fox wants Channing Tatum to become either one of the new leads or the main lead for the X-Men films and if Gambit doesn't work that might not happen. Wolverine 3 is just meant to close the book on Hugh Jackman's character, the previous lead of the X-Men films.

Another option is to move one of them into September 2017, because there's nothing there except for a LEGO film about those stupid Ninjago figures.

Well that's just it I don't think they necessarily want either film to be in the Summer hence why I said Summer 2017 or later so the question becomes which one to move and where.  

They also need to make sure a film isn't sitting in post production for too long as if both shoot in the Spring, then that will be well over a year in post for whichever film gets moved.  I would be surprised either that if both end up shooting close to each other that they may cameo in each others films.  So a lot for Fox to think about before announcing dates.

It's not the final product guys. Its not like the photo was taken off of the set or something. They havent even done principle, much less nailed down a shoot sight. I'm sure he's growing it (his hair) out so that it can be styled in the manner in which the role requires. Remember, Gambit's gone through several hair styles over the years. We dont know if the movie will take place in one era and transcend forward in the future or just be contained within a single day.

Not necessarily. You can shoot a good movie in 8 months... But this is a superhero movie that's being handled like action-thriller heist flick with a rumored 150mill budget (that includes production, advertising etc). It could be less but even 100m is a huge movie and if the script is written with that in mind, there's no way it'll be ready for October. Fox wouldn't invest that much capital in a project and have it rushed out. I don't think that is Limen's style either. It'll get pushed back to early 2017 as we suspect. At least I hope it does. For the films sake.

He keeps talking about "Old Man Logan". That takes place in the distant future. In that story they had Hawkeye escort him across the country. Seeing as that's unlikely, maybe they could use Gambit (Tatum)? Or maybe Gambit, but not played by Tatum... I don't know. It's a possibility.

I know. I will probably cry when I see it. I never thought I would see a Gambit movie in my lifetime. And it will be very overwhelming. What excites me the most is the dedication of Channing Tatum. He fought for the headsock (hence the haircut), he said that he can't wait to put on the trench coat. The way he has done the Cajun accent practicing nonstop. It's just great to see.

Good or bad. Fox is dedicated to the character. Never as much as we all are. But I am ready for this ride. So ready.  :gambit:

ETA--Just to clarify my earlier post about the rating--I've always known it would be PG-13, so I can't really say why I was initially disappointed--probably all those descriptions about it being a sexy thriller.

You guys are really harping about this headsock... This is his first outting as Gambit. We didn't see Gambit without the headsock until 2002 (in action). Didn't make you like him any less. There has to be a progression in character and costume. All characters do this. Even the Hulk didn't have the same pants from one movie to the next. Just chill. Chances are because of the nature of the movie we'll only see him "suited up" in the beginning and end of the movie. The vast majority will have him in civilian/casual clothing. Just my view on it.

Yeah I agree, he won't be in his main costume throughout the whole film but still to see it in a film version of him will be exciting.  :D

I'm thinking they'll have two different costumes for Gambit and the his normal, everyday clothes.

If you will google pic with Gambit, at least first 30 of them are gonna be his 90`s costume with headsock. It is important part of him that makes him recognizable as comic book character.

If they will able to make that headpiece work on Tatum then it will be really awesome!

The 'funny name' and super powers make him recognizable as a comic character. And it doesn't really matter if we as fans like it or not, the movie has to sell to a much wider audience than us. If the audience is going 'wtf is on his head?' that doesn't help the movie succeed.

Movie audiences don't care. They aren't invested in looks or persona via books.  All they want is a good movie story. They know hokey when they see it too and it shows in box office receipts.

Movie audiences need to suspend belief - whether the hardcore fan likes what that is or not isn't the issue. Its the films success. I care more about that, than if Gambit has his headsock or not.

Gambit should win, survive - be the character I see. He doesn't need the props for that. IMO

I actually think the opposite. A huge chunk of the American audience seeing this movie will have not seen him since the 90s show (ignoring Origins, most people loved he was in it but we're confused about everything else lol). If they don't see him in something familiar at least once they might say "doesn't really look like Gambit, but ok". But I guess the title screen, accent and the trenchcoat might be be enough LOL.

Yeah, the accent, coat and likely eyes should be enough. ;) audiences managed with wolverine not having giant ears on his head. Heck even superman and batman both no longer wear their underwear outside their pants anymore. They didn't change those things because of the comic fans, they did it because they thought movie audiences would like it much better.

I don't think that's what he meant. The timeline Wolverine returned to wasn't "pre-Phoenix" (he was graying, so it happened years after the last X-Men movie). It was the same time as if that event didnt happen or happened slightly differently. By his own description, that timeline Wolverine went back to was set. The only thing thats in "danger" of changing are the happenings prior to that. And by changing, I mean by how we first saw it. By saying that, if he wanted to, he can retell Phoenix Saga altogether, or ignore it completely. Could be wrong, but thats how I saw it.

The last part of Singer's quote makes it clear that any of the characters Wolverine saw at the end of DOFP could die.

As to the New Future Wolverine saw at the end of "Days of Future Past," he said, "I'll kill any of those characters any day I want. They're all fair game. Anything can happen. When two things are happening simultaneously in quantum physics it's what’s called the Super Position and when the Observer finally observes the outcome that's called the 'Collapsing of the Super Position' which is what happened when Wolverine woke up and saw all the happiness. So yes that is the outcome we hope for, that is the outcome we aspire to, and that’s the outcome we are moving towards, but we saw in 'Days of Future Past' another dark world. What says that can’t happen again? What says the awakening of a being that has such power and can acquire the power to destabilize that? So anything is possible."


Dimension jumping is not different from time travel but rather a mechanism by which time travel is possible.  There are two standard interpretations of Quantum Mechanics, the Copenhagen Interpretation which is basically what Singer is talking about here and the Many Worlds Interpretation which as it relates to time travel would suggest that multiple universes exist and the act of time travel results in you entering an alternate universe in order to avoid the Grandfather Paradox/Causal Loop ie you can't travel back in time because if you did and killed your grandfather you would never have been born and hence could not travel back in time.  The way you solve for that is by saying that when you traveled back in time you entered an alternate universe and hence the universe where you were born still exists and thus when you kill your grandfather you did so in a different universe from the one you were born in.

The problem with Singer's statement is that the Collapse of the Superposition in the context of time travel would potentially result in the Grandfather Paradox/Causal Loop which many time travel stories simply ignore or they simply follow the many worlds interpretation without explicitly stating that they are to avoid the audience getting confused.  But yeah, anyone can die according to Singer and frankly that would include Wolverine himself.

In other words, he's a kid playing in sandbox and he's telling the world he won't be held to results of his own story. That's cool, but without further disruptions in time, its nonsense. If you go further in a timeline and see it, it can't be changed unless you interfere with it via more time travel. Unless hes stating that his timelines are constantly shifting... Interesting, but implausible. The present is already predestined if not provided with information of the future (time travel) or interfered with by the past (more time travel).

Or throw all this out of the window and except that breaking the quantum barrier is moving from one dimension to another. Thus would mean, you can't change the future, but divert your present. The witnessed future is its own stream and will continue on as it was found and the new "future" creates by the disruption is now a completely new dimension. So if someone traveling back in time, they still return to their future as they left it. But Singer isn't using this model... He's using the Singer Model.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: remydat on January 22, 2016, 09:04:24 PM
From the perspective of the time traveler, he doesn't know he is in another universe.  I live in 616.  I go back in time and alter the history that I am aware of from 616.  The act of my going back in time actually puts me in universe 617 but I have no way of knowing that as I time travel.  So when I kill my grandfather I don't disappear because my grandfather in 616 still exists and I actually killed poor gramps in 617. 

So the past and future Wolverines goes to and returns too were not the past and futures from his original timeline.  And you could easily solve the issue of Wolverine already seeing the end of his new timeline at the end of DOFP with Apocalypse.  In the many worlds interpretation, alternative universes are created all the time based on decisions we make irrespective of time travel.  So if I am deciding whether to go to the store today or not, under the many worlds interpretation, that potential choice means that an alternate universe is created so that there is one universe where I decided to go to the store and another universe where I decided to stay home.

So there is more than one universe where Wolverine went back in time because subsequent to him doing so, other decisions made by other people within that universe would have caused other alternate universes (all with a past where Wolverine went back in time) even without time travel.  So the end of DOFP is simply one of those universes while it's like DOFP would be set in another one of these universes where presumably Apocalypse woke up.

This would become confusing for an audience and kill the suspense as if we are just switching between different versions of a character that exists in different alternate universes, the audience can't really connect with any one character because we have such an individual concept of identity.  So the easy solution from a story standpoint is to simply ignore the fact you are following the MWI as most audiences aren't going to care.

I think fitting into the current timeline following DoFP would be nearly impossible. Too much to set up unless he spins off Gambit and Deadpool set up. I suspect the 3rd Wolverine movie will be Old Man Logan. Set in a far dystopian future where they can set their own board and play however they like.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: purplevit on January 24, 2016, 06:49:36 AM
I think Patrick Stewart is gonna be in this. So I think it may be in DOFP ending time.

Should they really have dystopian future for this too? Just a road trip would be ok for me.

Maybe... but I believe Jackman is the one that brought up the idea of Old Man Logan. If your concerned about the inclusion of other actors/characters, well they can be in the movie, without having a pivotal role (lots of flashbacks). A lot of Old Man Logan's story comes about because of things that happen in the past. He's ultimately the cause of the death of the X-Men, mind you in the books its Mysterio (switch him out for Mastermind) that fools him into slaughtering his friends, but he lives with the memory and the guilt. So much so that he refuses to even use his claws. I think the idea of the story makes his claws like that of the aliens in Alien. You dont really see them until the end of the movie so when you do its instant adrenaline for the viewers. It also calls for less obvious actions beats and much more character development in terms of problem solving. I'm sure being able to flesh Wolverine out in this way appeals very much Hugh. I look forward to this if it comes to pass. While Singer has said he isnt holding himself to the future we saw in DoFP, I doubt as executive producer of all things  foX-Men, he's going to sign off on yet another movie being set in that time which might further confuse audiences. We take for granted that we know more about the set ups than the common viewer. In other words, people arent as smart as you think they are.

I think Old Man Logan story can work without him murdering all x-men. It is ridiculous. I like Wolverine but it is ridiculous that he can kill all x characters at he same time.

It would be better if Mastermind would make him kill suporting love interest and red head girl from The Wolverine. He killed Jean before so now he do not want to use them again ever.

Oh I never liked the back story of OML! The sheer idea of Wolverine being able to just rip through all his teammates at the same time irked me to no end.  Not very believable at all. Too many heavy hitters and high level psionics to deal with all at once. Could he take down several? Sure, but every single one? Let's not ask why they all just happened to be in one room... But it was written. At the height Marvel's god level Wolverine marketing whoring- I mean campaign. He was then what Deadpool is now.

no, no debate, just wondering, as the artical stated he often uses "the force" on women, what a lovely sentence that makes , i know its star wars and all but comeon that sounds so rapey, like you know where i stand on the debate of charm, but say i was on the other side of the debate i would say his first appearance he uses his charm on the woman working with Shadowking, that is one woman, 1, who are the other women, while we all love that Remy is a ladies man this wording bugged the hell out of me infact the whole statement did, so i did a very quick flick through of some of my comics and Remy is seduced more so than we have seen him seduce, Working backwards , X-Factor 8 Angela , Gambit V5 10 with Joelle that seems more mutual if something happened, we dont know what happen with Mystique but he was resisting her seduction, then Gambit V4 3 Lili Penrose doesnt take no for an answer , again thats a quick flick through, and im not debating the charm power, if someone says he charmed such and such i dont care, its more about OFTEN USES on women, what women, in Xtreme he had no powers and seemed to charm one of Bogans hench people, other issue where Gambit is making out with a woman we dont see the set up like UXM 381, or in Victims with the defective it glossed over it but it was a relationship, with Genevieve XM33 he was in a relationship, probably would have been quicker to charm her to get what he wanted.
i repeat this is not about the power its about that statement and where it comes from? does anyone have anything that might add to it or an idea where it comes from, if you say he charmed such and such im not going to argue or debate with you over it

I'd prefer 'naturally' charm too. The rapey subtext is too unavoidable. Even if it's a subtle telepathy type thing, say he never uses it on woman just people trying to kill him. Like shadow kings hench women, he was just trying to get away and save kid storm. (Natural charm still works there and would be preferred.)

Channing Tatum is naturally charming, like Joel McHale or Oscar Isaac. He, and his portrayal of Gambit, don't need a dumb charm power. In fact, Gambit never needed it in the first place, he sure as hell never used it.

It was just a dumb reference in an article from someone that probably doesn't know any better.  I don't care if he has the charm power or not but he has never used it on women in the manner suggested.  If it exists, it has only been used on people trying to kill him and he tried it on Iceman to try and tell him where Rogue was.

In fact, on the TV show Lucifer, Lucifer basically has a charm power of sorts and the actor pulls it off well IMO so something akin to that is perfectly fine IMO although I don't think it matters either way.

Lucifers power you refer to is people cant lie to him they just want to tell him their deepest darkest twisted fantasies, i find the actor a bit over the top at times especially the beginning of the last episode with the street performer. what you wrote got me thinking, though and i swear im not starting or trying to debate a charm power here but apart from the Iceman thing every example ive been given in favor of Gambit having a charm ability, i kinda noticed a pattern, Gambit isnt so much charming someone or getting them to do what he wants so much as he is distracting them or put it this way he is keeping the focus on himself while he speaks, like his first appearance, or with Vargas as someone used, just food for thought i could be utterly wrong

I got the feeling that this person doesn't really know Gambit too well.  Sure it's great that people are paying attention to the movie and writing about it.  But to say that he has been seen with a bo staff in the past?  And that he should lose the bo staff for the film?  Dude.  Dude no.  That's like...his thing.  That and other little details.

Design and Trend isn't some well known or major news/entertainment source. It's nice to have places talk about the film because I think anything that keeps it top of mind is good, but also consider the source. :)

No Dantay - Gambit has never used his "charm" as in a power on women. Women find him charming and want to help him. E.g. The librarian lady in Fab's run. All the chicks kissing him when he was in a bar with Wolverine. They like him because he is eye candy. There is no instance beyond his schmoozing Iceman for a ride and Vargas to save his own life.  He's exotic looking via his eyes. While Storm has called him a charmer in Xmen, it is because he's giving her compliments and she recognizes his "game" as it were. And she was flattered by his compliments. What he is ... is a listener, its part of the con that he does.

His 'charm' is more his personality than anything else. Not to get anyone going, but the whole mental rape idea is a thing/label now because of over reaction to stuff. Heck, basically anyone with telepathy can be labeled in that manner. Who the heck would want that power now. Its a negative connotation and not something that needs to associated with Gambit.

IA with you Spoonz, the bo-staff is important to the character. Its his main weapon, since he doesn't crutch on his powers.

Lucifer says he is usually irresistible to women hence why his therapist basically ignores all professional decorum in front of him and the female cop.  In fact he is drawn to the female cop because she is immune not only to his deep dark desire power thing but because she isn't falling over herself to sleep with him.

Now I suppose one could argue he is just naturally charming but he is the devil and the way women react to him isn't really natural IMO. 

I agree the dude is over the top but I think it suits the character.

Jean Grey and Xavier are telepaths and there is no real negative connotation for them.  I don't think there is really a negative connotation at all.  I just think haters have used it as an excuse to bash the character and some fans are weary of it as a result.

There is nothing wrong with him having it.  There is nothing wrong with him not having it. There are more examples of Xavier and Jean Grey abusing their powers in the comics than there are of Gambit abusing this alleged power.

My bad for not being more concise and clear. The ideology of mental rape is a negative concept. Yes, haters have used the ideology to bash the character and yes fans are weary as a result.

It is a preference for me for Gambit to not have the power because its not worth the debate with the haters.

I hope they start releasing something soon. It's the perfect time to tease us fans with Gambit.

From what I've read so far on the Internet, there is so much confusion with what is happening with the Gambit film. Some people think it has been cancelled, people still think Tatum dropped out, even some people think it doesn't have a director etc.

After the success of Deadpool, you would think they would use this to their own advantage.

Show us a tease of Tatum as Gambit, exactly like Fox did with Deadpool.

Fox or Channing need to release some information soon on the Gambit film.

"i heard that the director quitted because the studio is interfering."

"I heard they switched the guy playing gambit. Like he actually has a Louisiana accent now loL"

"It was Channing Tatum, Not sure if they picked someone else"

"I don't see Gambit being released this year. Last i heard the director quit"

"What's up with Gambit? I haven't heard anything about it.Even though I think will do the least out of all the films"

The interest in the film is there overall but Fox need to release some news soon to clarify things. Tease the fans so they show more interest in the film and it catches their curiosity. I believe Gambit will be a hit if they do all the marketing for this film correct.

tease them with what? they haven't even entered production yet, they just got a new director, those comments you posted are old and true...is , so far there is a director , leading male and female actors and a silly hair style, thats all there is, where there is more im sure we will all see or hear it, we have all the information we need which is They are making a Gambit film and there is an A-Lister heading the film with a decent script and a good director

By now a costume should be made or partly, they can easily show a tease of this just to get us more excited or release some casting info to start the Gambit promotion.

Correction. We've seen Gambit at least once live action.. Just because the role wasn't the best doesn't mean it didn't happen. Taylor didn't make a half bad Gambit, the script was just trash. His presence was simply pandering fan service. He served no real function.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Gambit4love1 on February 23, 2016, 03:17:46 PM
I don't personally see that as Gambt, it was a a young kid in a purple shirt with 2 elements of Gambit thrown on him. It could have been anyone in that film.

Taylor did ok with what he was given but what he was given was not Gambit. Taylor couldn't even master a Cajun accent, he found it too hard.

Personally I'm glad he has been replaced.

We want to see Gambit from the comics and from what we have heard so far, it looks like we may finally get him.

Yes, thank you. 

Although, I wouldn't say he served no real function since he lead Wolverine to the bad guys location(and even flew him to the island), saved Wolverine from being smashed, and helped the mutant escapees get away with Xavier. 

I don't personally see that as Gambt, it was a a young kid in a purple shirt with 2 elements of Gambit thrown on him. It could have been anyone in that film.

And I disagree.  I enjoyed Kitsch as Gambit, and I enjoyed his part in the film(aside from the elbow to the face part).  He may not have perfectly captured the comic version of Gambit, but aside from Patrick Stewart as Xavier, has any other X-Man comic character been perfectly captured in film?  Just because you personally don't see him as Gambit doesn't mean that there hasn't been a film version of Gambit.   

Personally I'm glad he has been replaced.

Not me.  Kitsch may not have been perfect as Gambit, but at least he looked the part.  I may end up enjoying the upcoming Gambit movie(I truly hope I will be able to), but right now I'm not excited at all.  Tatum doesn't make me think Gambit at all.  He doesn't have the look, and right now, for me personally, just doesn't seem right for the role.

Saw this thread had a bunch of new replies, got kind of excited...only to see people talking about how there is no news.

So far, I'm more excited about the non-CT people involved (well, the screenwriter gives me pause, even though the script is supposedly good), and I'm curious to see what characters will be in it and what the exact plot will be--how will it compare/contrast with his comics origin, and all that.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Gambit4love1 on February 24, 2016, 01:40:23 AM
It's really strange, some people find Tatum is starting to look more like Gambit recently, and then some people don't see it at all.

I guess it all depends on which Gambit version Comics or Animation you are comparing with.

Personally, I don't see Kitsch as Gambit, he doesn't look like him in my opinion. Too young for the role I felt.

Kitsch had no red and black eyes, no Cajun accent, no personality of Gambits and no costume. The only part I thought Kitsch looked like Gambit, is the bottom part of his face in the scene, just before he takes off his hat.

I think what will make Tatum stand out more in this role is he is doing everything Kitsch didn't do or have. Which is great for us Gambit fans, as we are finally going to see the Gambit we want.

Its strange to say, as we have only been given little info so far but I have more faith in this adaptation. This news gives me faith

Quote
"Channing is a big fan of the comic,” Kinberg says, “so the accent, the attitude, the costume in many way, will be in the film. And he’s a character with a complex backstory – we’re playing him as a thief in the film, and that’s a big part of the story.”

This film and character can't be worse than what we got in Origins, that was lowest for Gambit I feel.

People who are still on the fence with this film or Tatum himself will find what they need in their own time to like this adaptation and hopefully enjoy it.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on February 24, 2016, 01:53:43 AM
Everyone says he's a bad actor, but he's so good now. He used to be crap, but now? Look at Foxcatcher, The Jump Street series, Side Effects, Hail Caesar!, and The Hateful Eight. He's amazing in these films and for some of those projects the only way he could've gotten a part in them was if he at the top of his game.

And then people argue about other actors and whether or not Tatum's too large for the role (apparently, he's an inch shorter and weighs a pound more than Gambit does in the comics, I saw that on a thread somewhere).

I always get mad when I see people throw out Gaspard Ulliel as Gambit because, sure he can speak French, but there's got to be a Southern accent alongside it. That's how Cajuns sound. It would be impossible for him to do that (I worry a little about how they're gonna handle Belladonna with Seydoux playing her because of this) and I've heard he isn't all that good of an actor in the first place.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Gambit4love1 on February 24, 2016, 02:13:23 AM
There's more to Gambit than just his good looks, theirs his attitude, his accent and of course his fighting skills.

Most people who throw out other names for Gambit are only thinking of their looks.

Tatum has grown in the last 5 years as an actor and it shows. He has proven what a good actor and dancer he is in films such as The Hateful Eight, Hail Caesar and Foxcatcher.

His dance background will lend a big hand to Gambit when it comes to the fight scenes.

I've heard him do a tease of a Cajun accent and it sounds fantastic. Very promising for the character. And on the plus he already has the southern charm pinned down.

im not a Tatum hater but the films most have listed The Hateful Eight & Hail Caesar he's not in for long and Foxcatcher he is outshined in that film by Carell and Rufflo, 21 jump street its a double act and he is the better of the two,  he doesnt look like Gambit but he has passion for the character, i dont think he is a very good actor but i feel he will nail this part and ill take that over someone who looks like Gambit anyday someone who will get the character right unlike Taylor Kitsch who i dont 100% blame for his Gambits short comings, he was lazy ore than anything, it was more on the director and studio see the extras where Hood talks about Deadpool

Big or little role, he shows what a good actor he has become compared to when he started out. I mean he was a dancer starting out in a new profession. He's been working hard for over 10 years now and it's showing. The man has put his head down and worked in front and behind the camera.

Anyways, because Tatum we are getting our Gambit film. His passion sure does shine out for Gambit and I think once that official photo is released of him dressed as Gambit, I think it will shock people how much he will look like him.

From recent pictures I've seen of him, he looks more and more like Gambit. For me what I'm looking forwards to the most is hearing his accent.

Have to agree.  Many films get rushed, and the final product ends up being blah.  WB raced to get Green Lantern out, and looked how well that did (yet Fox took their time with Deadpool).  Fox does not want another Fantastic Four on their hands.  Better to learn from previous mistakes than just plow ahead and assume it will be a hit just because it's a comic book movie.

I don't think Fox took their time with Deadpool at all. They just werent confident in the project and ignored it until the "leaked" footage set the internet on fire. They shelved it for so long Reynolds and company literally had years to develop the story and script. So much so, only about 25% of it got cut or changed before final shooting. The script that ended up online back in 2011 is really close to what we saw this year. Because of that, it was shot fairly quick. By time we got set photos, it was more than 75% done.

I hope they cut the budget. Not as much as they did with Deadpool, but enough where they can stack the cast with talented people and get the effects needed for Gambit. $150 million is too much for a character that admittedly has popularity trouble and, in his last live action appearance, was portrayed by the box office poison known as Taylor Kitsch.

Ant-man had almost the same budget. Ant-man...

Yeah, Antman has a lot more reasons to have a bigger budget than Gambit. Not because of his popularity or appeal but because what the plot involves. Changing size, creating new levels of reality and perception. Gambit can be very practical and may benefit from it. Look what Doug did with Bourne (60m) and Edge of Tomorrow (175m). Bourne was 100% practical while Edge of Tomorrow was effects heavy. A balance in between may be the best move for the film. Mr and Mrs Smith (another Limen film), another down to earth action-thriller with some comedic notes, had two A-listers and still only costed 110m. If we want a successful movie series, the movie needs to double or triple it's cost. Is Gambit going to pull in 500m? 300m? But the fact that Limen has done low budget and high makes me confident in what he can do.

I agree about the budget, but I hate them sucking up to Deadpool. I remember when Deadpool was first announced, their was still negative comments from fans over the project until the official photo was released.

The problem is Fox aren't delivering positive news about the film. They really need to start releasing the release date and casting news. The fact nothing has been said from Fox or Tatum is the worrying part.

It's just speculation but the success of Deadpool has likely changed things.  Prior to, Tatum and Gambit seemed like the more likely successor to Wolverine but now with Deadpool's success, they don't necessarily need Tatum and Gambit like they did before.  Doesn't mean they will stop it altogether but it's a fair point to make.

Well, Lea Seydoux lists "Gambit" as one of her upcoming films in her Twitter profile, so I guess she's officially onboard.

Well nothings been canceled. But the idea of it being scaled back is a real possibility. Again, we've seen Limen work with a big budget and a smaller one. Gambit is more James Bond than Star Wars. It wont be hurt too much by a smaller budget... unless they were planning on filming on different locales (ie NOLA, NYC, LA and maybe even Paris or Madrid; all locations we can see Gambit visiting).

I'll admit to being concerned... When deadpool blew up, at first I thought, well that's going to be a tough act to follow. But now with still nothing new, I'm worries they're just going bag it and concentrate on deadpool: :/

This is what really angers me. Since the year 2000 they didn't put Gambit in the original X-men films because they said he was too much like Wolverine. Then when they finally put him in a film, they just threw him in X-men Origins Wolverine just because Hey! We haven't used Gambit yet. Let's just throw in the worse version of him.
And now, we get promised a Gambit film but hey because another character was out the gate first and has done so well, they are still treating Gambit like he is not worth using. Very similar to the comic writers I feel.

I would say X-Force do not need Gambit but X-Men still need him a lot. Deadpool was awesome but he won`t work in movie like Apocalypse as lead character.

Everything will be good with Gambit but I think movie will be not in present like Deadpool.

thats not whats happening at all, Gambit simply wont be ready for October, good films take time especially one's with lots of SFX , it will get a new release date probably Feb 17 , its a good sign that its taking its time and not rushing

Agreed, seriously guys, visiting little sites with small community groups does not mean much. Its a small group like this site, only with those other places you are not going to find throngs of fans. Movie goers don't care about all this stuff. The want to be entertained.

Remember it is Tatum who made this film happen, he loves the character. He has the pull to keep it going.

Movies are not the comics.  They cost tens of millions if not hundreds of millions to produce and market so Fox would be stupid to not reevaluate things as new information such as the success of Deadpool comes in.

Prior to Deadpool, all the info was that it was going to be a big budget 100 million+ PG-13 blockbuster which several people had questioned if that made sense.  Now that Deadpool has shown you can do a modest movie with a 50-60 million budget with a R rating to boot then Marvel would be silly not to consider the impact that new information has on a Gambit film.

It also is quite possible, that they may figure they have the solo star to replace Wolverine now that Deadpool blew up so maybe they don't need a Gambit solo and they can simply just introduce him in a team movie like say X-force but there is no point worrying about that because that's just pure speculation right now.

By "Marvel", you surely mean "Fox", correct?

But I concur. It'd be absolutely ludicrous for Fox not to reevaluate their plans for the direction of the X-Men films. Who knows? This may lead to a complete genre Renaissance. Before Deadpool I think studios believed comic property based films had to be colossal budgeted, flashy, summer blockbusters to be successfully made. Using Deadpool as an example they may start green lighting more passion projects with lower budgets. Smaller budgets equal less risk of loss. But it could also be a start of over saturation of bad comic book movies due to a lack of vision. Teams like Ryan Reynolds assembled don't come along every day. To clarify, I'm not saying a comic book movie needs a big budget to be good nor am I saying low budget passion projects are the future. Just some possibilities that may come to pass thanks to this past February.

Hollywood heads have a pension for being copycat, boot licking cowards after all.

Yes, exactly. There's no way the suits at fox aren't rethinking everything after how well deadpool did. Maybe it will encourage they to take more chances on 'passion' projects or maybe they will just decide they have their new wolverine and not take anymore chances.

Post by: dcgregorya on March 03, 2016, 04:59:24 PM
My assumption is that in typical business fashion Fox will copy Marvel's widely successful model of "introduce individual heroes then pull them together into team film".     Conceptually this way each hero can be individually introduced making team films less awkward and more meaningful and provided you keep some standards around each film you're developing a very flexible set of IP to repackage and sell and rotate through.   

I haven't seen anything just yet that makes me think their strategy isn't that simple  :) .     They have no reason to collapse on Deadpool unless the Gambit film doesn't fare well.     They're probably realizing they don't want "Wolverine" they want 8 "Wolverines".

One correction, the title they have there which is likely to change is X-Men: Gambit (aka Chess).  If you are a subscriber, I believe you can login and get more info on the movie including if there are any roles they still need people for.

It should just be Gambit. He hasn't met the X-men yet, so he's not an x-man till later.

Deadpool is part of the X-men universe but he didn't have X-men Deadpool as a title.

While I'm certain "Chess" is for secrecy or something. I actually like that name. Gambit: Chess seems alright. I'd be fine with just Gambit.  However - there is a much older film with that title, so something that would his film stand out so that people find him easier than the other film would be good.

Meh... Sounds silly to me. "Gambit: Chess"? Calling it simply "Gambit" is probably whats most likely seeing as this is the first movie. In the next movie I hope its him doing a Indiana Jones act and perhaps finding something that links the X-Men universe to or puts them in contact with the Shi'Ar. Perhaps it kicks off an encounter that forces the Shi'Ar and the X-Men to work together to fend off the Brood or Phalanx. With the X-Men being the only super heroes in their universe (thanks to the toddlers that run Fox and Marvel), its not such a ridiculous idea.

Deadpool and Gambit are two new solo films, which are set in the same timeline.

Both of these films will lead up to new X-men films.

X-men Origins: Wolverine was part of the old X-men films and I rather not be reminded of how bad that film/version was of Gambit.

I feel they should just have Gambit as the title. If they want x-men mentioned then have an X-men character appear in the film. (Similar to Deadpool)

My guess is the script and the production is getting another look over since Deadpools success.

Everyone is saying "OH DEADPOOL 2 NEXT YEAR." but they would have to be starting to shoot if they want to get it into the same release spot as they did this year, so no deadpool 2 next year more like 2018...its just me thinking but maybe this is something we all need to think about

True, but difference is Deadpool was a relative unknown. I don't think I have even one friend around my age and even older (32, only one in my circles that reads) that doesn't know the name Gambit (mostly thanks to animated series, seriously that thing made throngs of fans from nonreaders). He's much more of a house hold name and can even be considered a X-Men staple for a lot of people coming out of the 90s. No one wanted to take a chance on a no name comic book character totting a once thought to be unmarketable R rating. Reynolds wasn't getting a budget, casting, getting moved, delayed, and losing directors. It was just sitting on a shelf. The script is years old and only got minor changes before shooting. I'll temper my expectations on production but still hold hope as I'm looking forward to it, especially with Limen helming.

The director is taking other jobs, ordering rewrites, and recasting from scratch reportedly. Let's just wait and see how this turns out. Could all be for the better.

So many emotions when it comes to any Gambit movie news :D, whether it be delays, casting or budget. I don't care when they start filming. I will start paying attention to the Gambit movie once they actually start producing content. There really isn't a reason why Fox can't pull out a good movie with the Cajun.
 I think they went against popular advice of introducing him in a full X-Men movie and  going straight to the solo film first.

It all remains to be seen, but I am more hopeful than apprehensive.

My point is delays don't tell you anything about how successful a film is going to be.  There is plenty of reason for Gambit to be delayed.  Deadpool fundamentally changes everything about how they view films IMO and I think it is obvious they are completely rethinking their movie strategy.  So wouldn't be shocked if Gambit is seriously delayed or put on hold indefinitely as they try and focus on Deadpool and X-force.  Perhaps even deciding to debut Gambit in X-force first instead of a solo film.  Who knows.  In the end, all this angst and worrying is pointless.  It will come out when it comes out if at all and all that will matter is whether it was good or not.  All this other stuff is stuff that goes on in Hollywood from time to time.

Their logic is pretty dumb.  No one was clamoring for Deadpool.  That is revisionist history as it took years for the movie to be made.  People only starting clamoring for a Deadpool movie once it was done filming and the marketing was so great.  So Deadpool blowing up completely invalidates all their crying about no one clamoring for a Gambit movie as it doesn't matter if they are or not.  All that matters is whether it ends up being a movie audiences want to see based on the marketing and the actual quality of the film.

The logic is dumb for the further reason that they talk about script issues and it being a mess when the fact is I don't think any of this is the result of the Gambit movie itself.  In a world prior to Deadpool, the script was said to be fantastic and a big budget Gambit movie to replace Wolverine as the star of the franchise perhaps made perfect sense.  In a world where the Deadpool movie was made for 56 million, was R-Rated, and made 740 million, a script that supports a bid budget Gambit film probably doesn't make as much sense.  That is not an indication that the Gambit film is a mess.  That is an indication that new information was provided to them and it obviously makes sense for them to revisit things because of it.

Well no one was "clamouring" for a Deadpool movie at first, but after the CGI test footage "leaked" with the caption reading along the lines of "test shot of proposed Deadpool movie Fox shelved" people went nuts. The fact that it basically hit the internet during SDCC helped I suppose. The thing spread like wildfire.

But I made the same point to Schnepp in my tweet. No one, NO ONE, asked for a Blade movie. And that thing changed the perception of comic book movies forever. It quite likely heralded in the whole genre into the new century.

I don't understand why the budget is an issue for people. If the studio wants to spend money on blowing things up, then kaboom haters!
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on March 31, 2016, 11:03:25 AM
The problem with the budget is that Gambit, while we all love him, is not as well known as Wolverine, same as Deadpool. The general audience doesn't read comics, so they may have heard about characters, but they don't know them. The studio didn't trust Deadpool to do well, so they slashed the budget multiple times and it wound up making a ton of money. They did more than break even. On top of that, it looks good for it's budget. You could easily do the same for Gambit, but keep it PG-13, which is less risky.

Also, Liman was apparently rewriting Edge of Tomorrow while on set or something like that. He turned that movie into a masterpiece.

But they are part of a recognizable brand, the MCU. People trust Marvel Studios to deliver a good superhero film. Fox has released a few stinkers over the years, and they're not as trusted when it comes to superhero movies. They're trusted more than WB, who failed when they put Snyder in charge of DCCU, meanwhile Fox is still trying gain people's love back.

A big budget Gambit film can do well and a small budget Gambit film can do well.  It doesn't matter if something is well known or not as there are plenty of movies made that are original to the movies and hence have no built in audience.  They do well based on how well the project is made and marketed and how much Star power the leads have.  The brand recognition of a Wolverine or Gambit or X-men is obviously helpful but it's not a requirement.  

Deadpool didn't make a ton of money because he is a better known star than Gambit or Wolverine.  It made a ton of money because it was a well made and marketed movie.  I have never read a Deadpool comic and neither did the vast majority of my friends most of whom don't read comics period.  That's not what drives a film's success.  There wasnt a single person I know who gave a crap about whether Deadpool got a film or not.  The fans that care about stuff like that don't make a movie a success.

What makes a movie a success surprise surprise are the people actually involved in making and marketing it which is why collider and others that say stuff like this completely miss the mark.

Well no one was "clamouring" for a Deadpool movie at first, but after the CGI test footage "leaked" with the caption reading along the lines of "test shot of proposed Deadpool movie Fox shelved" people went nuts. The fact that it basically hit the internet during SDCC helped I suppose. The thing spread like wildfire.

But I made the same point to Schnepp in my tweet. No one, NO ONE, asked for a Blade movie. And that thing changed the perception of comic book movies forever. It quite likely heralded in the whole genre into the new century.

Which still proves my point.  No one gave a cap about a Deadpool movie until a piece of marketing created interest.  It was not some spontaneous clamoring.  This movie was made because Reynolds never gave up on it not because a bunch of people were clamoring for it.  Remove Reynolds and Fox likely would not have given a crap about this just like they didn't give a cap about a Gambit film until Tatum ie a movie star forced the issue.

Exactly, but I'd disagree with your earlier statement of Deadpool and Gambit being similar. While Gambit isnt Wolverine, Wolverine wasn't Wolverine until Hugh Jackman got a hold of him. Prior to X1, people knew Wolverine in passing due to product placement, video games and advertising, but mainly because of the animated series. At that point, you could say the same about Gambit with a slight difference seeing as Wolverine was still the most popular character on that series (many would say Gambit was 2nd but no less than 3rd most popular). The seperation came when Gambit didnt make the cut for the 1st movie and then not even the 2nd (and thank goodness not the 3rd), sans a easter-egg name placement while Mystique was hacking Stryker's computer. But I digress; while Wolverine has stayed in the limelight since then, Gambit has been basically out of the public eye other than the small part in Origins and popping up in Evolution and the short-lived Wolverine and the X-Men series. However, from what I can tell from my co-workers and friends who have never picked up a single book (which is all of them), Gambit still has fans, as he's typically the 1st or 2nd name that comes up when talking about the 90s show. He doesnt have any new fans, probably very little under the age of 25-26 but those who were kids in the 90s watching Fox kids on saturday mornings still have him etched into a warm spot in their minds that pumps out the feel-good memories.

@NewSun17

The budget matters a lot and was making people nervous because of the possibility of failure is higher the more it costs to produce. If they spend 150m to make the movie and it only racks in 130m, 145m (domestic) or hell even breaks even, itll be seen as a flop. But if it does those same numbers and only costs 60, 70 or 80m to make and is critically acclaimed? Well, it's a success. Maybe not a resounding one, but it'll get a sequel and probably make another 50m on the back-end, not counting international sales.

I was onboard with the movie, still am, I'm defending it against naysayers and critics. However, I always had reservations about the budget and not introducing him in ensemble movie beforehand but it seemed like Fox was really worried about Jackman leaving and not having someone to fill the void. Limen directing helped a lot of my concerns because I'm a huge fan of his. I dont have a problem with Deadpool persay, but I dont believe he's a good fit as the main attraction of the XCU unless they are going for parodies.

Post by: albahan888 on March 31, 2016, 05:56:56 PM
Their logic is pretty dumb.  No one was clamoring for Deadpool.  That is revisionist history as it took years for the movie to be made.  People only starting clamoring for a Deadpool movie once it was done filming and the marketing was so great.  So Deadpool blowing up completely invalidates all their crying about no one clamoring for a Gambit movie as it doesn't matter if they are or not.  All that matters is whether it ends up being a movie audiences want to see based on the marketing and the actual quality of the film.

The logic is dumb for the further reason that they talk about script issues and it being a mess when the fact is I don't think any of this is the result of the Gambit movie itself.  In a world prior to Deadpool, the script was said to be fantastic and a big budget Gambit movie to replace Wolverine as the star of the franchise perhaps made perfect sense.  In a world where the Deadpool movie was made for 56 million, was R-Rated, and made 740 million, a script that supports a bid budget Gambit film probably doesn't make as much sense.  That is not an indication that the Gambit film is a mess.  That is an indication that new information was provided to them and it obviously makes sense for them to revisit things because of it.

Yeah that was my problem with them last time this came up. The first thing they did was agree that it wasn't going to make the October date and that they all thought it was inevitable that it would be pushed back. Then, for some reason, the next conclusion they decided to draw was that this meant it was cancelled and wasn't getting one of the 2 unannounced spots for X-Men movies that had been announced. I don't know how they got from it being obvious that Gambit wasn't going to make October to the fact that it didn't means it's cancelled. :-\ So I haven't gotten around to watching this one yet because it sounds like more of that. I mean they may not end up being wrong because a lot of weird delays and things keep happening with this movie but the fact that it did something you expected isn't reason to call it dead yet.

TITLE:   Gambit (aka Chess)
CATEGORY:   Feature Film
GENRE:   Action / Adventure / Fantasy / Sci-Fi / Thriller
SHOOT DATE:   September, 2016
LOCATION:   New Orleans, LA
STORY:   
The adventures of the X-Men world’s favorite mutant thief, Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit.

This is posted on IMDb Message Board by a user named as lajohn. The movie delayed only for 3 months actually. Only small number of people were aware of previous June date and they assume that it is delayed from March. Lea's name removed from Cast in IMDb, but she still has GAMBIT in her twitter profile and her last tweet posted 23 hours ago. I hope she didn't forget it there and consciously left it there.

Production starts September 2016: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3729594/board/thread/255769522

Anyway, he won't be there long. Five weeks tops, if I had to guess.

On the bright side, it's a Fox movie. Which means he isn't cutting ties with the studio. Ending the project outright would most definitely leave a bad taste in his mouth, but this shows us the studio is still on the Tatum train. Kind of like "hey, we know there are some bumps in the road to Gambit but we have another project to tide you over until we can get this straight." Just my opinion.

Especially updates where the producer that has his name on all things X-movies says they want to get it right and are continuously working on the script.

I think 10 Gambit fans would write 10 different scripts with different feeling and type of movie.
Gambit is a really comlex character so sometimes it is hard to make him fun, serious, mysterious, charming, dark and self-loathing at the same time.

That is why fans has different opinions about Asmus` Gambit.

Some fans really love it and think that it was perfect. Some like me think that it was good but not good enough. And some really hate it because it wasn`t Gambit that they were expecting.

I think the same situatuon will be with movie. One fans would say I want him to be with Rogue, others would say I want pop-corn movie about thief and third group of fans would love to see Mutant Masscare drama.
Deadpool was a great mix of humour, drama and action with some erotic. Gambit movie need to be the same great mix of different things.

Gambit is good as pg-13 charcter but he can work as R rated too. He is blowing up things. His explosions need to be like grenades smashing everything and everyone.

And not like in Origins when 52 cards into Wolverine`s chest weren`t even possible to destroy his t-shirt.

Yes, this is very true.  Trying to balance all the different versions of Gambit people have in their head is the challenge.  With a character like Deadpool, I think it is slightly easier because over the years his darker elements have been downplayed and made into something he can still make fun of.

The darker elements of Gambit like the MM is not something that you can make light of but it is something that for me drives his personality so it is something I would expect to see eventually on film.

No Creditable Source Suggests Channing Tatum Is Leaving ‘Gambit’

I’ve also checked-in with a Fox source from time to time, who has never mentioned Tatum leaving a possibility since locking-in his producing role on the project has given him a lot of creative say. This led to the hiring of his friend Reid as a screenwriter, he also had input on the hiring of Liman.

What if in sequel he is working for Sinister and infiltrates X-Men to destroy them. But during this movie he needs to decide where his loyalties really lie when he meets Rogue and finds a possible chance for redemption.

It could be a great mix of X-Men/Point Break/ and first The Fast and the Furious.

Definitely no thanks to Rogue. It'd be interesting if he ends his film in a bad way, like he starts off like normal arrogant Gambit but Bella dies and he gets kicked out of New Orleans so he ends the movie as more of a grey character with nothing to lose, maybe a cliffhanger ending is the Marauders assembling under Gambit. And so initially X-Force starts with Gambit as almost a villain because of what happened to him in his solo but he quickly comes round and joins X-Force to beat his fellow Marauders and ends the film back to his old self but more grown up or whatever. 

I'd like that.

That would be interesting. To have Sinister be the linchpin in all this. I'd be a funny twist, because Wolverine played that role for so long. The guy that went from movie to movie, but what if in a different way, that guy is now Sinister. Playing puppet master behind the scenes, if you will..

But I think a budget cut will ease the pressure when it comes to it's performance in the box office...because if it doesn't (at least) make it's money back, then there's no sequels or anymore appearances of Gambit in other X-Men movies.

I agree. That budget was a bit much. While I was excited that Fox would put that much behind it, it concerned me that that much expectation would be counter productive to its chances of being successful, at least without global sales and back end coming in.

At least it wasn't over "creative differences".  Could be worse. At this point, we'll be lucky if this movie gets made. Trying not to be too negative but, we aren't getting good news and all this does is fuel the hate at CBR. TBH - I'm so done with that (the hate, and its not just there but I digress).

Here's hoping Tatum gets this taken care of as it were. Since he's the sole reason its being made to begin with.

I've lost interest in this Gambit project.
It's probably a better idea to introduce him an X-Men/Sinister movie, and recast him with a younger actor around the same age as Scott and Jean.
Either that, or re-introduce him in the next Deadpool film.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: bigstupidjellyfish on August 24, 2016, 08:09:06 PM
So apparently Liman isn't leaving because of production issues or anything of the sort, but rather because Stacey Snider is now head of Fox (as of yesterday) and the two butted heads when Liman was making The Bourne Identity at Universal, which she was the head of at the time.

So, the "mutual agreement" was to let him leave the film so him and Snider wouldn't have to put up with each other. And I'm willing to bet that it was Kinberg who made this deal with Liman, as the two of them are buddies after they worked on Mr. and Mrs. Smith together.

Sinister is a generational kind of villain. He's basically immortal, and because he's in Wolverine 3 doesnt mean he can't be others (because it's set in the future). I think him being in Wolverine may be a good thing in the long run if he's a hit. I mean if we like the idea of him possibly being in a future Gambit movie, the fact that he's connected to the character that stole the show in Wolverine, could only help if they choose to include him (Sinister) in it.

I dunno - I think it might be looking too deeply into it. Seriously, Tatum looks bad in long hair, better for it to be short for Gambit. A good looking Gambit with short hair is better than a poor looking one because its deemed his hair should be long. IMO

Not only was Gambit's hair short in the last solo, but it was short in ANXF too. And I thought Gambit looked great.

I do hope they go with the suit from the solo, sure some iconic stuff should be there but I don't want Gambit to look too goofy on the big screen.

Some of his looks - looks great in comics but might not translate well in other mediums.

An example would be that TV show that featured Generation X with Emma Frost from 1996. The Mutant X TV (2001) took a more realistic look for the characters.

I think we all have different definitions of short and long. That solo hair was short-med on a woman, but definitely medium-length on a guy. Solo length was perfect for Gambit and much better than '90s ponytail length.

Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption... Pretty awesome pedigree. Downside that was more than 20 years ago. I would hope this guy knows what he's doing, but approaches it like he would anything else and is not so out of touch with Comic Book movies are now, he doesnt give us something like Shumakers Batman's. Directors and writers like this tend to look down on the genre typically calling it "mindless". I just hope this isn't his approach and thinks anything will work. Please keep this guy away from X-Men 92' and maybe even the XTAS. Give him Mackie, Layman, Asmus and Fabian's runs as examples please... even though I don't think someone like this is going to take the time to read several dozen issues of comic books. Kind of afraid that committee of Marvel folk are providing him info. Lot of bias there these days.

He developed and executive produced the Walking Dead which is literally a story centered around mindless zombies.  Yet he certainly infused a sense of intelligence that probably has never been seen before in a Zombie film which is precisely why that show is so well received.  Not to mention, the TV show is based on a comic and Robert Kirkman (writer of the comic) is on record talking about how Darabont respected the source material.

So I don't think he would have a problem respecting the comics and frankly if he actually is interested I would expect it to be because he sees something in the source material he can bring to the big screen that would make it unique just like he did with Walking Dead.

Yeah, I wasn't going to bring up Walking Dead because he didn't do any of the writing or direction, he was the showrunner. He got abruptly let go, I believe due to internal beef with AMC. But that's probably why he hasn't been active since then. He's still going to court over those matters.

I'm one of those people that prefer the older seasons of the Walking Dead so maybe this would be a good thing for me?  Although if it's somebody that's been inactive do we want them directing this film if they're rusty? 

Either way though, it's about time we got some news on whether or not this movie is actually going to move forward.

The showrunner is essentially the Director of the whole TV show.  The episode directors and writers are more of the footsoldiers.  He essentially put the formula together that made that show a success and AMC basically fired him because they wanted to keep more of the profits since it was the first AMC show where they ultimately owned it outright.  Their split was because they cut the budget per episode down and pocketed the difference and Darabont was upset because he felt they were overworking and underpaying the cast and crew.  As the below notes, the biggest beef AMC had with him beyond the budget was because he takes a "feature film approach to television," which is one of the reasons the show was so well received.

"feature film approach to television,"

I guess "feature film approach" can also mean; money and time. And since "time" means money in the film/tv industry, the show may have been more expensive with him at the helm.

I guess "feature film approach" can also mean; money and time. And since "time" means money in the film/tv industry, the show may have been more expensive with him at the helm.

Well here is the direct quote.  Again the main issue was the first season had a budget of about 3.75 million per episode.  Darabont obviously delivered on that as Walking Dead became AMC's biggest commercial hit and then AMC responded by cutting the budget by about 500k per episode.  And all AMC did with that savings was pocket it as profit.  You would think with a successful show, they would reward the people involved but instead they opted for a money grab.  AMC is notorious for doing this as the creator of Mad Men doesn't even talk to the guy in charge over at AMC anymore because they had a falling out.  AMC simply can't get rid of him because they co-own Mad Men.  Whereas for Walking Dead, they own it outright.  Their killing off of characters on the show also has the added effect of making it difficult for the actors to fight for a bigger piece of the pie because they can simply be killed off and replaced with cheaper actors.

An agency source says Darabont is "notoriously a pain in the ass" known for "taking a feature-film approach to television," which is meant to suggest that he didn't manage the brisk pace of television well. But an insider says Darabont's approach was what made Walking Dead special. "Frank fights for the show," says an insider. "He doesn't just do what the network wants him to do. … He's a filmmaker, and that's why the show was as good as it was." Sources with ties to the show insist it was on schedule and on budget.

Not much in the way of News, but Forbs mentioned it during an article about the state of the Fox X-Men movie franchise.

"...While Hugh Jackman may be finished with Wolverine, the successes of Deadpool and Logan have established a template going forward. Take a fan-favorite character, do a deep dive into a specific genre, keep the budget under $100 million and go for a fan-friendly R-rating. Under these circumstances, a $70m, R-rated Gambit movie, with Channing Tatum having Thomas Crown Affair-ish sexually-charged capers, might be a smart idea. Just make sure the film is tilted toward the female gaze, with that R-rating coming from male nudity from the Ragin' Cajun. It would certainly align with the unique model that served Logan and Deadpool so well-"

If you make the entire film a sexy crime/heist thriller with superheros that appeases BOTH sexes then it's win/win.  Why does it have to be one or the other?

I mean, look at Asmus' solo.  He gave both the boys and girls eye candy, it was great.

Yeah, I get the intentions, but the whole "tilted toward the female gaze"- thing isn't what I'd  want either. A steady balance is a better path IMO. If they do go the "70mil" route, I would have loved to see Doug Liman take on it. But there's more going on than just "scheduling conflicts". There's talk of a feud or disagreement between Liman and a new Exec that came in right around the time he was getting ready to re-write the script.

My hope is that Fox won't be stupid enough to target mainly women.  They should know that they'll be alienating half of their potential audience that way.  Plus don't forget that some guys would see it just because it's a superhero film or it looks good, even though they're not necessarily fans of Gambit, but they'd be turned off it was targeted towards women.  Heck, I'm really not a Wolverine fan but Logan looked awesome so I went to see it. 

You know, it's a shame that John Wick already did what it did and that Deadpool got its director. That would've been immense for a Gambit film!

So Deadpool was modeled after a black comedy. Wolverine after a Western. And Gambit may be a thriller ala 90s like the Thomas Crown Affair or sexually charged like Basic Instinct? Would something like that be better than something in the vein of Mr. and Mrs. Smith?
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Spoonz on March 22, 2017, 06:21:25 PM
Mr and Mrs Smith was okay but a bit too silly for Gambit to borrow it's tone. But I think definitely for the way that it catered to both male and female audiences, with Pitt and Jolie  the Gambit movie could use that.

How about The Man from U.N.C.L.E?  Even the remake wasn't awful. I know it's spy stuff but put a bit of thievery in there and it's good stuff for Gambit?

But definitely a thriller vibe yes, high stakes danger stuff. Like mission impossible meets oceans eleven?

Basic instinct might be a little too dark.

oh yes, but I didnt mean in tone but content... but you're probably right. Basic Instinct may be a bit of stretch, however when I did a search on Netflix for the Thomas Crown Affair, Basic Instinct came up as "related". But I agree, it's little further right on the spectrum than the Thomas Crown Affair.

Doug Liman On Why He Left Channing Tatum's Gambit

http://lrmonline.com/news/exclusive-doug-liman-talks-about-leaving-channing-tatums-gambit

Liman: “I'm all about the script, and I just wasn't feeling it,” he told us. “I've gotta connect to the script. On Bourne Identity, Matt Damon was always referring to himself as a 'script whore,' and I'm with Matt on that. It's like, you feel the script, that's everything. We make movies because we want to tell great stories. The Wall started with a contest Amazon ran, and Dwain's script rose to the top, and then it got handed to me.”

Post by: Spoonz on May 08, 2017, 09:17:06 AM
See, I knew the Robocop guy was a bad choice! Superhero films are so saturated right now you need a good script.

So this is why the delay, they're starting from scratch because the script was actually rubbish? Maybe in a way that's good, otherwise a bad movie would have been made and the nay sayers would feel justified. So they were forced to make it better. On the other hand, it means we lost a good director.

How do you guys feel at this point? Right now I don't know, people are going to trash this movie unless it's AMAZING. It's like folk want it to fail and these delays don't give me much hope.

Yeah the Robocop reboot was a trashy popcorn flick, and I guess you can say that about most superhero films as well but the ones that stand out are more than that. 

At this point, I don't think it will go ahead.  I reckon they'll just let it slowly fade out of existence and then one day somebody will make a passing comment about how it's gone.  I mean, the Deadpool movie didn't go through THIS much trouble, did it?  After the Wolverine Origins one, both Gambit and Deadpool had their movie discussions begin, and Deadpool has number 2 coming out already.

Deadpool took 10 years to get right and before that on Blade 3 Goyer had intentions of doing a DP move so it was in development even longer, i dont care how long it takes as long as they get it right

I saw at least two more, news sucks but it's getting a lot of traction. I think the attention will do one of two things. Get it scrapped completely, or encourage Fox to get a decent scribe for the film.

The Gambit movie is in a interesting place. Fox is currently in a hit or miss mode when it comes to the X-Men. X-Men Apocalypse was a surprise critical dud. Deadpool was a surprise hit. Logan did well but was Hugh Jackman's swan song. Let's face it Fox has produced more duds critically than not. It's not a Gambit problem in my problem but rather a overall a lack of cohesive vision for the X-Men franchise as a whole. Which is why the time line is a mess in the movies. Time will tell.

Bit harsh... At this point, I love Tatum's zeal but it takes more than that to pull out a good movie and Gambit has to be that, a good movie. Still think a series based on his younger years would be better but with it having to be on Fox, scares me.

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Rakkner on June 05, 2017, 05:00:38 PM
I know it likely won't happen, but I finally watched 'Logan'; and my first thought was they should include Gambit in the X-23 sequel.  (With no Tatum).  Have him be Laura's next mentor with Logan dead, and follow the theme from the X-23 book a few years back.   

I feel like it'd be an excellent opportunity to introduce the character into the movie-verse.   Give him a kick-ass role and get fans excited for a solo movie after that.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on June 05, 2017, 06:33:15 PM
I still think this movie is going to happen.   It just makes too much sense.   I think Simon Kinberg said by the end of the year they should have everything they need set and look to start production early-ish 2018.   But first they have New Mutants, Deapool 2, and the next X-Men movie to shoot.   So they have a lot on their plate at the moment so I wouldn't expect too much big news on this for a while.   


I think shoving Gambit into to someone else's movie to "try him out" is a dangerous move.   That's basically what they did with Gambit and Deadpool with X-Men Origins: Wolverine and that completely killed the idea.   If you wind up sticking him in a bad movie it could ruin things for the future. 


It's a shame there are still people who are down on Tatum.  He is so instrumental to this working.

For  sure he has won many people over as an actor now. I more so meant all the doubters of him as Gambit. The people who say things like "he doesn't have the charisma" or "he can't pull off the Cajun accent" or "he's too big". That one makes me chuckle a bit. I bet that if they were to release an early and somewhat slick promo shot of Tatum in full wardrobe and black and red eyes, half the naysayers would flip instantly.

I agree that we all might come up with different stories for a Gambit film but we'll all pretty much be on the same page on how we feel the character should be portrayed and how his personality should be and how his powers and abilities are handled. And if that is done right(the character himself) I think most of us could be flexible on the exact story they tell. It's about getting the character right first. Something FOX doesn't have the greatest track record of but has shown promise recently with Deadpool and Logan.

I think Gambit has a huge challenge as character becuase of his sad and selfloathing part and fun part at the same time.
Neko would love brighter Gambit as written by Asmus and such feeling for movie. Don would be even ok with popcorn movie if it will be succesfull and make money. Remydat would do a fun Gambit with more dark/selfloathing in third act. I would be more then ok with Gambit more as villain in drama/thriller movie about his past.

The pefect solution is really to find this golden middle between comedy and drama, so we can see fun, mysterious, cool, selfloathing and dangerous Gambit in one movie.

You said it. Gambit is all of those things. But A lot of what you mention reflects tone and style of the movie. Those character traits can all be represented in the movie but depending on the tone and over all idea of the film some things might be highlighted more than others. This is why sequels would be great. But honestly, as long as they stay true to Gambit in the scenarios given, I think we would all be satisfied.


Maybe I should just speak for myself. I have my own ideas for Gambit in a movie but I also am open to all those options you mentioned as well. As long as they respect the character and get him right.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on June 13, 2017, 12:33:39 PM
We'd have to settle on a plot, a love interest (if any), tone of the film, villain(s), era (timeline), locale(s), and budget, which kind of determines everything else, if this was a spy flick, we going for "Mr and Mrs Smith" level or "James Bond Spectre"?

We'd have to look at it from the perspective of a producer and writer and attempt to create something that honors the source material and appeals to superhero/marvel/dc movie going crowds as well as general movie going crowds. If we look at it from a nerdy Gambit fanboy/girl trying to make the perfect Gambit movie perspective, we'll be doing it FOREVER. ;)

Yikes. I like to think FOX is learning their lesson with these movies. Deadpool was pitch perfect and Logan was good(a bit overrated in my honest opinion) but I am not a fan of their X-Men movies at all. And that seems extremely ambitious for a studio who, in my opinion, has still not gotten the X-Men right. So I definitely have concern but we know FOX doesn't mind changing or dropping dates. Just as long as the Gambit movie is first in line after New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men "whatever" are finished, I'll be happy. People keep talking about X-Force like it's a definite and Gambit is still up in the air. I think Gambit is way further along in development than X-Force.

Director is rumored and main stars are just people we assume will transition from deadpool 2.


Gambit has Tatum and we know there is a script(possibly 2) and rewrites. Imdb also has more listed in the crew for gambit. X-Force would be a big undertaking and Gambit SHOULD be a much simpler movie to make and should certainly come out before X-Force.

I agree Feb 14 2019 is a great date for Gambit to come out. Early in the year like Deadpool and Logan were.

Ugh, you know, these people and all their ilk do know their films, they know the business, but really what impact do they have?  None.  They're just commentators. Ignore them if they say stuff you think is silly. 

Tatum isn't my first choice at all but he's grown on me.  Watched the trailer for Logan Lucky and it looks like he's still becoming much better of an actor.  I also watched that Hateful Eight movie the other day and I reckon he's actually better than I thought at doing the charm act. 
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on July 06, 2017, 05:49:12 PM
I can't stand those guys at Collider and I can't really watch them anymore. He says no one wants Tatum. No one wanted Ben Affleck as Batman either when he was announced. Then they released that photo of him in the Bat suit and half the people flipped. Then they did their marketing campaign and a teaser then trailers and everyone was declaring Affleck the best Batman ever before Batman v Superman even came out. Harloff and team should know better then to trust the opinion of the internet of a casting choice so early on in production. Internet opinion can change drastically further into the process. If it was one of their favorite characters they'd be much more open minded.


And to keep harping on Taylor Kitsch is just ridiculous at this point. Kitsch did the best he could but he was not a good Gambit. Not to mention he's pretty much considered box office poison at this point. The ship has sailed on Kitsch.

I was never a fan, but he has fans of his portrayal. He tried to hard imo. But he was okay enough that when that film is on TV, the only scenes I watch are his. That says something, there was some really good effects and I liked the gambling aspect. But getting decked by Wolvie was lame. 

Funny - SBB (my hubby and tech guy here) busts my chops when that film is on ... he know which section I'm watching and knows I'll change the channel when its done. LOL
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on July 06, 2017, 06:25:29 PM
If that movie is on. those are the only scenes I watch as well but it's really only because it's Gambit in live action movie form. So, I've watched that scene many many times. At the time I stood up for him and his portrayal. I give him credit for doing his best but after all is said and done, in my opinion, he is not the guy. I can literally break down the entire appearance of Gambit in that movie shot for shot and go on and on about all things I don't like, can't stand, or hate and the things I like. The bad far out ways good. And in my opinion that appearance of Gambit was a massive failure all around.


I just don't understand people who think Kitsch was great or say "Gambit was the best thing in the movie". To me that's what has helped bury Gambit as a character in the years since. People hardly remember Gambit in the movie and for fans to say Gambit was "awesome" or "pretty good" or "done well" I think criminally underscores how awesome Gambit really is. I think Deadpool got a bigger push coming out of that movie because of how butchered he was and everyone knew it and complained to no end. Gambit just kind of resembled himself and overall it was just a lame outing and excitement for him in movies just kind of faded into the background.


Thanks to Channing Tatum and FOX realizing they screwed up the possibility of establishing a major fan favorite character they are trying it again. But it's a bit more of an uphill battle than it originally would have been in part due to the disappointing showing from him the first time in a disappointing movie. These are just my opinions and feelings on the matter.




Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Spoonz on July 08, 2017, 03:01:44 AM
Well, Gambit WAS the best thing in that movie.  Problem is, it was an awful movie from start to finish so it's not a very high bar to clear  :P

I think Kitsch had the right look for Gambit and honestly I think as an actor he had the ability to pull it off. But the problem was that he really didn't know Gambit, he said in interviews he'd never heard of the character before the audition.  Now fair play to him he went out and tried to do his research but maybe he just didn't read enough issues (he only ever mentioned the issue where he talks to Storm on the roof then beats up Sabertooth), because his Gambit could've been any cocky teenager in a casino if you took away the cards and the staff.  But I think it's unfair to lay it all on Kitsch since that script and direction was pretty bad for the character.  He won the plane in a game?  Why not have him steal it? 

Anyway, I would've been curious to see Kitsch try again with a much better script and a better director.  Maybe a director who loves the character.  Everybody rips on John Carter but I liked it and thought Kitsch didn't do too badly.  Everything that came after that...pretty bad, yeah I can see what he's not in a lot of stuff these days. 

But as it is, Tatum love Gambit and seems to know Gambit pretty well so I'm happy for him to have a go.  If only we can get to it happening!!

He may not have read much, but at least he read 90s era Gambit. And let's be serious, he didn't go out and find that issue himself, he was given that book and probably more, but only read that. It says even Fox producers know what era of Gambit is the most suitable.

I find youtube comments to be very negative in general and it doesn't matter what the subject matter is ... its like the old CBR. LOL

That aside - its still on Tatum so far if we're ever going to see a film. :)

Channing Tatum Confirms He’s Working On Gambit Right Now

http://comicbook.com/marvel/2017/07/20/x-men-gambit-movie-channing-tatum/

A lot of new interviews with Tatum on Gambit. He is positive :)


Channing Tatum hopes to bring the Gambit panel in next year Comic Con in a interview with cinema blend and talks more about Gambit

Channing also mentions that there were certains thing which they weren't allowed to do until Deadpool and Logan came out. Channing adds that he isn’t ready to commit to making Gambit an R-rated film: “We’re not quite going there, because I enjoyed Gambit as a kid so I don’t want to rule out PG-13 but there are some things which might be a little Rated R.”

Channing Tatum in an interview with MTV talks regarding the delay and how Logan and Deadpool have inspired him. Channing mentions that it was the luckiest thing in the world that we had some bumps in the road and I think the bumps in the road came at the time that there was a paradigm shift in these movies," Tatum told MTV News' Josh Horowitz at a press event for Kingsman: The Golden Circle Thursday (July 20). "We got to witness and learn from two really beautiful change in guard from movies, Logan and Deadpool. It did break some ground for us and now we have to figure out what our version of that is and not just try to go and do whatever that is."

What does everyone think...should a Gambit movie be R or PG-13? Deadpool & Logan made sense, and they both worked, but I'm on the fence on this one.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on July 28, 2017, 03:07:36 PM
Shumar and Tatum have both said several times even a week ago that they don't believe they'll go beyond PG13. They might push the boundary in some places but in terms of language and graphic violence (the main reasons Deadpool and Logan got their rating), but that's it. If it goes R it'll probably be due to sexual content, but that would need to be a whole lot of it, not generally something we've seen from Tatum... outside of Magic Mike. I'd expect "Thriller-level" sexual content. Lots of it, but not lude and graphic... trying to think of a movie that has the level I'm talking about and all I can think of is Basic Instinct (not the tone, but the amount of sexual content that made it rated R. Wasn't shy on language either).
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News

Of the 3 characters, Gambit needs an R rating the least.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on July 28, 2017, 05:59:03 PM
I've always said Gambit really doesn't need an R rating. But if they decided to go that route I would embrace it. I have to say that it would be really interesting to see the physical destruction Gambit's powers could produce. That mixed with sexual scenes, nudity, and some hard language would definitely interest me. But it doesn't have to be hard R.


I liked what Tatum had to say. He said, he doesn't want to exclude kids from being introduced to Gambit because that's what he was (as most of us were) when he fell in love with the character. But depending on how everything plays out and where it takes them, they're not opposed to an R rating. That's pretty much exactly what I want to hear.

That's really what I meant to say. The damage done to a human body by a powerful projectile explosive thrown from Gambit. That can't be done in PG-13. It would be interesting but it's not necessary. I also like the idea of Gambit throwing kinetically charged objects near his enemies to take them out by fallen debris, blocking off an escape, or just knocking the foe down with an intentional near miss. None of this hitting them directly and they get up nonsense. They have to establish his powers as formidable. If it's a direct hit on a human, it should definitely be a kill.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on July 30, 2017, 12:59:05 PM
Outside of a couple instances, mostly in AoA, Gambit's explosions have typically always blown his targets BACK not up.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on July 30, 2017, 07:14:27 PM
Yeah well that's mainly because Gambit is not normally featured in comics that are allowed to be graphically violent. Gambit has used many charged projectiles to blow up objects like walls or cars etc. If Gambit hits a human with a charged brick there will be pieces of that person scattered all around. Not something they could do in the T-rated comics he's usually in but if they went with an R-rating for the movie I'd be interested in seeing a scene or two like that. A charged card blowing up a wall but only knocking a person back is not very consistent. That's why I like him using the cards in an intentional "near miss" style and non lethal way to incapacitate opponents if they want to avoid killing/graphic killing. 
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Meliorist on July 30, 2017, 07:55:12 PM
I don't know. Gambit grew up on the streets, was adopted by thieves, one of his best friends and eventual wife was an assassin. Despite all of that he doesn't kill people with his powers. I spoke with a childhood friend recently and she said one of the reasons Gambit was a favorite of her's was because he wasn't gritty and gloomy.
If they were going to show the damage his powers can cause, I would rather it be in a flashback and use it to show why he isn't dropping people like Deadpool and Wolverine. It even be a quasi innocent scene where he and Belladona are throwing knives at a tree and Remy charges one, with the knife causing massive damage when it explodes, injuring Bella. They joke but Remy is worried and makes a comment like 'Maybe I stick with cards next time' as he stares at the tree.
Give him a 'I hate/don't use guns' kind of line. A way of informing the audience that he is being nonlethal without making us have a weird dialogue about it.

I think you should get the idea of Gambit blowing people (the human form) up in a live action-movie, out of your heads. If it does happen, it'll be once, more than likely to set up the story or conclude it. He isn't going to be making human confetti left and right. That's not the Gambit character and it'd be impractical to show on something south of NC-17, much less, R.

Sometimes I wonder if my whole posts are being read. I made mention of it happening once or twice probably at the end to kill off a main baddie or two. Never implied he would be killing muthas left and right. If they go with an R rating then it is totally likely we could get a scene like that. I'm not sure where this "Gambit never kills" idea came from but I don't buy into to it. As an X-Man he is trying to do the right thing but if the situation calls for it, I can totally see him having to put someone down.

It isn't that he can't kill but chooses not to, kind of...
His first meeting with Magneto, he says he isn't going to charge the cards enough to kill but in one of the solos, he leaves a guy to a demon's mercy.


My introduction to Gambit was very low realism. A Sega game first, then the cartoon, and finally the comics. None of them took a realistic approach to what an explosion would do to the human body. We already discussed this a bit with the Cap vs Gambit fight. In the Age of Apocalypse comics, which sealed the deal on Gambit and Blink being two of my favorites, Gambit never really came off as serious about everything until he drops Colossus. Which was a pretty cathartic scene, so I can definitely see how him doing that to the main villain would also be appealing. I don't find the idea of it necessary though, primarily because I think they will mess it up.


Sure, with a Gambit movie, they have a great chance to give a rebuttal to all the people that say Gambit has stupid powers and does nothing. It is just that most creative teams seem to go for style when drawing and not give due consideration to what they are showing. Most of the time Gambit's cards cause larger explosions than grenades and the can of beans did better than some missiles but I don't see that being conveyed properly, so I'd rather them avoid it.

I don't buy "Gambit never kills" too. But this idea was shown in Nicieza's solo where Remy could blow villains into pieces with his eyes but refused to do so like in fights with NEO and Bullseye.
Gambit always was afraid of his powers so I think he will faster kill someone with normal knife then with charged card.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on July 31, 2017, 05:52:20 PM
Good stuff. For me, I feel in a movie they need to do a decent job representing his powers and the strength he possesses. He is going to be represented as a solo character and only the the third one at that in the X-Men movie-verse. He has to be a formidable solo character. Wolverine is basically un-killable with an adimantium skeleton and matching set of claws. He will always win because he is virtually unstoppable. Deadpool is virtually un-killable as well but mixed with super-fighting abilities as well as guns and swords. Third now is Gambit who can be killed and isn't unstoppable. So they have to make up for it else where like  his speed and agility and ability to escape situations.  As well as his impressive power set. That's what he has over the other two. Having him hitting mortals with projectiles and merely knocking them back isn't very impressive. He's basically useless if a more powered foe comes along.  Like I said, a direct hit from his kinetic explosive projectiles should be enough to kill a mortal or at least send them into the intensive care unit. So I see him using them for indirect hits just taking people out of the situation for the time being. Unless they want to give him a mastery over his powers in the movie where he can control the force of the explosion in the objects he charges. That could fix things.

Just off the top of my head I can think of three instances where Gambit kills. Julien Boudreaux was killed by Gambit straight up in a duel(not counting that lame retcon where it was an accident), Gambit also killed the tithe collector in the Mackie miniseries, and Colossus in AoA. I think the stuff with him not wanting to kill just depends on the writer and what story they want to tell. I honestly don't have a problem with Gambit killing the occasional foe especially if it's to save someone else. I think that's within the characters scope. Not to mention, you would think Gambit is going to be played as a morally ambiguous character in the film. If they want to get into him being more hesitant about killing, maybe that can be an arc for him that spans a few films as he becomes more and more of a "good guy".
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Meliorist on July 31, 2017, 06:55:38 PM
I get where you are coming from and agree to an extent. I do have my own bias but will be more specific; Gambit has always seemed skittish at the thought of killing with his powers and not that he doesn't kill at all. Honestly, if they tweaked the Ultimate introduction of Gambit and still ended with him using his powers to fry the brain of the bad guy, I would have no issue with it. More than that though, I would rather them emphasize Gambit's combative pragmatism, cleverness, and ingenuity. Controlling his powers to do time delayed shape charges, also awesome.


My concern is that is that with Gambit's powers, they decide to go rule of cool and it turns out like, "Hey, Michael Bay, we got this character..."

I really don't want some Michael Bay-esque popcorn flick. I want something thematic and enthralling, and outside of the Dark Knight trilogy, there aren't very many PG-13 rated super hero films like that.


Aside from the examples of him using deadly force already given, I remember him killing a clone of Scalphunter in Fabian's solo and I think I remember him killing a couple of goons and the main villain in Asmus' solo. That being said, I don't think he should have high body count in this film because that would make him too similar too Logan and Wade. Now, I would have no objections to Belle and the Assassins Guild indulging in some bloody mayhem because that's what I expect from Assassins.

Agreed on this as well. Let some Marvel movies have emotional sincerity. The characters can banter and bicker but save it for the mooks if it is in a fight. If it is Sinister/ Marauders/ Hell Fire Club, let it have drama without undercutting it with quips.

Yeah, Gambit was a better swordsman then Julien and killed him in a duel. Carey was the one who made lame retcon with charged knife.
Not sure, but I think that Tithe Collector has survived explosion in first mini and appeared in Rogue mini.

100% agree. That's definitely what I mean to imply when I say they need to display Gambit's "power set" well. They need to get into his enhanced agility, speed, dexterity, etc due to his powers. I'd love to see him dodge/deflect bullets. I'd love to see him use his staff as a boom stick. I'd love to see a time delayed charge as well. They can get real creative with his powers if they have the imagination. I want to see him use his ability to con and trick people too.  Like I said, if they gave him control over how much charge he puts in an item I'd be ok with him hitting mortals and not killing them. I hope this is at least part of the reason for taking their time with the movie. That they want to do more than a character with generic powers and really put together something unique and interesting. Honestly, not only would he be different than Wolverine and Deadpool, but he'd be more unique than the characters in the MCU.


purplevit, It doesn't really matter if a character showed up again later. Julien did too and if AoA wasn't just an alternate storyline that had an end, Colossus would be back too. Point is, for the purposes of those stories the objective was to kill. Nobody stays dead in comics. ;) No problem with Gambit killing the occasional bad guy.

You took my reply personally.. I didnt quote your post or anyone else's so this wouldn't happen funny enough. I was addressing everyone that thought it'd be okay to make Gambit rated R due to the nature of his powers. If it makes it any better, Purp feels similarly to you, but I disagree with him as well. My point had less to do with Gambit the character, and more to do with how ratings work. Violence against the human form is what counts as violence to the ratings setters. Only way to avoid that would be to cut away every time before the explosion set off. It's why you can have movies like John Wick (ignoring the language) Rated-R, but if they did a Gears of War movie (keeping the language under control) it could still be kept at PG-13. For instance, the Transformers movies stay under PG-13, but there's tons of violence and adult language and sexual situations, but that violence is padded because its fictional non-human beings and there's little to now blood spilt in the process.  If you have Gambit using his powers in a lethal manner more than handful of times (in full view of the audience), it'd immediately get a "R" or at least PG-13, and then they'd have to tiptoe for the rest of the movie to keep there. It'd limit what they could do while trying to market it. Fox still wants a leading man to take Wolverine's spot. That is not Deadpool. They cant market Deadpool to kids as a movie to take them to. Keeping Gambit PG-13 allows them to market differently, have more screenings at different times of the day. It's much bigger than you all think.

As for this "Gambit never kills" thing... who came up with that? I never did. But I can assure you, unlike Wolverine, I can recall every time he has on panel. Gambit can kill to defend his life or those around him, but he's not a killer. If any of you think otherwise, you never understood his character. He's more than his powers and shouldn't be defined by them. His powers are actually the opposite of who he is. They are brash, loud, and flashy. Gambit is smooth, charming and stealthy. It gives him depth. In a way you can say he doesnt even want his powers, at least not in the way most think. He tried to have them watered down and when he lost them after XXM, he didnt go on any journey to get them back. I can argue he adjusted and didnt really want them back all that much.


My outlook... If Gambit is going to be rated R for anything, it should be other things rather than violence. It's a new era Fox X-Men franchise, following Deadpool and Logan, it'd be expected. An R rating IMO should be because of content such as sexual situations. Now because that can easily push it up to PG-13 alone, they have room to tip it over by using language and THEN they can go over the top with a few scenes of graphic violence. But if anyone thinks it should get an R rating just due to his powers, then your asking for a movie that may not represent the Gambit you and I know, and most certainly not the one Fox, or Tatum want. It doesnt need to be Deadpool. If I'm looking at this right, they will use this as much a genre flick as they others. They got a Western in Logan, the action-comedy in Deadpool; Gambit is probably going to be something all its own. Most likely an action-thriller with healthy helpings of romance. It may even be a "caper" like the Thomas Crown Affair (but not nearly as stuffy, the main character makes things blow up lol) or crime-action-drama (again, not as serious though, still dealing with Channing Tatum here).

Noone says that Gambit is a killer or should be a killer.
I was saying that Gambit explosives must be dangerous so I added a few posts ago link from X-Factor where Gambit always throws cards near enemies.


I hated Origins when Gambit threw deck of cards into Logan and it did no damage even to his clothes. He was just thrown through wall.


I doubt that Gambit will throw a lot of cards in movie but as for me they must be like grenades. He may throw them only in cars, near people or into robots but they must make big damage.

If some characters will appear in it or sequel then it will be X-Men characters and not X-Force characters like in Deadpool.

That's the funny thing about Gambit's powers. What we saw in origins is actually within the scope of his abilities. Increasing an object kinetic potential doesnt necessarily mean "explosion". There are levels to his charging abilities. Look at his staff. Gambit charges his staff on numerous occassions, but not to explode. Increasing its kinetic potential allows him to hit an object with many times the force than he's physically capable of. When he charges a card it doesnt have to explode, but the explosion itself isnt because of it's stuffed with C4. The force coming from it a result of outward momentum, the molecules within the object moving away from each other violently creating an explosive reaction. For instance, he once charged a cage of basketballs and knocked it over. They werent moving at super speed, but once they made contact with a frenzied mob, it knocked everyone down and away like they all pushed back by firehose. Wolverine in the movie went through the wall 1; because he's effing heavy. 2; because of the applied force from the charged cards being thrown and making contact, not due to explosion. In a way, Gambit can turn his cards into razor blades, much like what happened when he threw a hand of them at Bullseye... he caught them and threw them back (still charged) and they sunk into his armored arm like they were made of metal.


And yeah purp, I get you. I responded to those pic by pointing out how the enemies are being blown away, not up. I would think that's on purpose seeing how much control he has over his powers. Gambit isn't out to kill anyone, but he also isn't allergic to the result, especially if the target has bad intentions.

The same kinetic potential was shown in Gambit short with Daken. If they will use similar visual skills for movie then we will see even more scenes in comics where Gambit's explosions don't do any damage to Cap and others.


Also remembered Gambit vs Daken fight from comics when Remy blow up Daken's hand.
If Assassins would have powers in movie then I hope someone will be able to regenerate to use similar scene on him.
It was a really cool moment that shows how dangerous Remy's powers are.

But that's my point. Because he's not defined by his powers and what they are capable of, the use of them does not denote the necessity or even the need for the movie to be Rated-R while in use of said powers. Just because he can, doesnt necessarily mean he should or world. Gambit has more potential to be deadly than he actual is. I think because he shows off what they are capable of, combined with how he carries himself, his red eyes and words, he bluffs more than threatens. He's hoping you take his warning, rather than wishing you wouldn't.

Whoa, a lot to attempt to respond to.


purplevit, we are pretty much on the same page here. I was just trying to make a joke about how no one stays dead in the comics.


DonPriceTag, I don't mean to take things personally but when you say things like, "It's much bigger than you all think", "If any of you think otherwise, you never understood his character", "I think you should get the idea of Gambit blowing people up in a live action movie, out of your heads." etc it seems at least partially directed at me because I'm bringing it up in my posts. Is anyone saying it'd be ok or a good idea to make it rated R due to the nature of his powers? All I have said is if they do go for an R rating I'd be interested in a scene where he kills a big baddie using his powers. That is a totally possible scene if the movie is R. I feel that his powers have to be represented in a lethal way so he doesn't come off useless like in Origins. R or PG-13 I think direct hits from charged objects should be fatal. In an R rated movie the scene would of course be more graphic. I've explained ways for them to use it in non-fatal ways.


I've already said, that I don't think the R rating is necessary and should probably just be PG-13. I'm just talking about the possibility of it getting an R and something I think would be interesting to see in the movie. Blowing up a bad guy in a fun R rated action movie is usually very satisfying. As far as the where the "Gambit never kills" thing came from... all I did was bring up the fact that Gambit's charged projectiles should kill mortal humans to establish how deadly he is. That was met with "Gambit's not a killer" or "he's not Deadpool or Wolverine". Never said he was. But I think it's reasonable to have him kill a bad guy or two to establish how strong his powers are. Especially now being introduced to him before he's even on X-Men or anything. I just really don't want to see him hitting bad guys with cards or whatever just knocking them down and they get back up. It makes him look weak. By the way this can be done in PG-13 or a more graphic R.


We can agree to disagree on how his powers were portrayed in Origins. I think they made him look like a chump. Totally useless against Wolverine who is a character in the movies known to get his ass kicked all the time. And I totally understand your point about Gambit's cards not exploding, but you're coming at it from a nerdy Gambit fan perspective. As we all do. But for general audiences they should probably give it some type of really interesting colorful explosion. Ya know, to help the average Joe's fully understand the powers. Also a visual that separates him from Wolverine and Deadpool. And to come back to a previous point, even without the explosion, the cards have the force to knock a 300lbs Adimantium skeletoned man across the room and straight through through a brick wall. Those cards should easily smash straight through a mortal man's chest leaving a pretty massive hole or just obliterating his entire upper torso(should've hurt Wolverine a bit more as well. Just a bit ;) ). I remember thinking that was a bit un-characteristic of Gambit.  Just because someone knows his name and knows something about his past, Gambit attempts to brutally kill them in public?

I don't think anyone is saying the movie needs to be R to properly portray Gambit's powers. Honestly, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that. So, I don't think that's something you need to worry about. If they wind up making the movie R it's probably due to sexuality/nudity and language like you said, and probably most blood and graphic violence would probably come from the villains. If that's the case I still can imagine a pretty satisfying bad guy death.

Some marauders like Sabretooth or Scalphunter would be cool too. Sabretooth would alow to show Gambit`s powers in more brutal way because he can regenerate.

Purp and several of us have been talking about this for weeks now... I also believe your adding connotation or emotion to my posts where there is none. I promise you, there is no emotion on my part. I'm not being condescending, I'm talking. If I'm talking to you directly, you will know because I'll quote your statement. You're pointing out things I said in a prior a post AFTER I quoted you. My original post was addressing your statement about "not knowing if people read your posts", as you were assuming I was talking or referring to you. I was not. Not really. I really can't help you if you think I'm taking some sort of "shot" at you. I'm not but... again I cant do anything but say that "I'm not". I'm talking about how ratings work and how willing Gambit, the character, would be to use his powers to kill without cause along with what Fox is looking for in a Gambit character played by Channing Tatum (never brought up this thing about him needing to kill a villain... I don't see how that would be different from anything else we've seen, so it's basically a given). The kind of violence necessary for an R rating isnt what Gambit is... maybe for the short period in time before he turned into Mr. Romance, but he's been Mr. Remorse much longer. If you're not talking about what I'm talking about... why are you taking anything I'm saying to heart? Especially if I'm not quoting anything your saying? I'm not combative. I like discussion and the challenging of ideas. Nothing more. And the "r" rating as it relates to his powers, I wasn't the one that brought that up. Again, we've been going back and forth for months now, it may have been Purp that originally brought up the notion and then it was brought up again recently.


I also never mentioned my "feelings" about Origins. I merely talked about how his powers worked. If you must know, I hated X3 and Origins. Watched both once and will never watched either ever again. I think you may be reading too far into my posts?

Listen, I am not adding any emotion to your posts. All I am trying to do is have a dialogue and address the idea that people feel the film should be R rated due to the nature of Gambit's powers and the idea people think Gambit's a killer using my own personal take on it. Personally, I think perhaps you are putting a bit of emotion in to my posts because I am talking to you directly. I'm just trying to understand your take on it that is still a little hazy TO ME. Trust me, it's all love in here for me and never did I feel like you took a shot at me. I just love talking about this stuff and I'm just trying to figure out your point on that it because it doesn't seem like purplevit feels that way either. Once again, just giving my take on things and certainly don't mean to come off like I've been slighted or disrespected or anything. Because I certainly don't feel that I have. :cheers:


Definitely my mistake about Origins. I thought you were defending how they portrayed Gambit's powers in that movie as a good idea. Which you were not. But take out that first sentence and it's still a decent point.

Good question. I'm really not sure. It all depends on the story they decide to tell. If I had it my way, the movie would take place after Gambit had been exiled from the guild and is out on his own. I would tell his back story in flashback. I guess there could be some assassins after him for payback. Maybe a Julien brought back from the dead. I love the idea of Candra being involved. I definitely think there should be some sort of female villain because gambit shines when he has to deal with women especially foes. But the assassins after him wouldn't be his only challenge as I still like the idea of it being a heist thriller. Maybe some shady characters he has to work with and cast Bryan Cranston as Sinister to be the big baddie in the background(for now). Something along those lines. I like the idea of Sabertooth in it but I'm not sure if they would do that.


Hey Neko, are you not holding your breath for this movie to happen anytime soon or ever?
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on August 02, 2017, 09:03:12 PM
You can't tell what's on the minds of these execs but if I were up there I'd start using Sinister. He's a puppet master. I'd give him his first appearance in Gambit and start connecting dots that would eventually wind up in an X-Men movie with a him as the headline villain. But in the case of this movie he wouldn't be known as Sinister. I'd utilize his shapeshifting for a reveal at the end. I'd have him be manipulating everything around him, possibly using the Externals as a motivation (have him chasing immortality). On the surface, make villain of the movie be members of the Assassin's Guild (to build up Gambit's world) but set Sinister up for a end credit or cliffhanger reveal.


Because of Tatum's age we aren't going to be able to focus too much on his early years. They can have his reasoning for not being in NOLA the conflict with Julian but it can't be the center unless they are going to have more than one actor (playing young him), spend a good chunk in flashbacks or mangle his backstory. Again, only because Tatum doesn't look 18, and a late 20s Gambit just getting kicked out of NOLA is kinda boring. I hope we catch up with him after years of being away. The movie can have him return and the audience can discover as he gets reacquainted.


The pure origins story is probably left to a episodic format with a young actor and cast.

Post by: DonPriceTag on August 03, 2017, 06:15:33 PM
not like they have a choice. Unlike Deadpool, who's origins began well into adulthood, Gambit's active origins started in his teens. Just not going to work unless they want half the movie to be played with different actors. Tatum and anyone around him (Julien, Bella, assuming there will be anything shot in NOLA) probably arent going to look youthful enough to be believably in their late teens or early 20s. The more time this takes (the older Tatum gets), the less likely it'll be an origins, which imo is a good thing. It also makes it less likely he'll be joining up with the current crop of younger X-Men, making it way more likely for his movie to take place in the same timeline as Deadpool and possibly New Mutants (no way New Mutants takes place in the current X-Men timeline, that being the 80s-90s).

We may not see him in his teens (although the issue where we learn why he uses throwing cards is one of my favorites), but we COULD see a scene or two of him as a baby with the red and black eyes.. a la X-Men Origins: Gambit.

Post by: JJB26 on August 05, 2017, 01:36:38 AM
I think an origins story can still work if its similar to "Batman Begins," meaning it chronicles his childhood, early 20s (yeah, I think Tatum could drop some weight and pass for early 20s) and late 20s.


As for the villain? I'd go with Julien and introduce Sinister in the after credit scenes.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: cc008 on August 05, 2017, 08:52:55 AM
Sinister's been hinted at a lot but still hasn't been revealed... and I doubt it'll come in Dark Phoenix. So maybe finally showing up in the Gambit movie could be where we see him.


Personally, I want Liev Schreiber back. He was originally supposed to be back for LOGAN, but they ended up not using him. So he's obviously game to reprise the role.

Channing Tatum thanks Deadpool and Logan for helping Gambit ‘buck the system and do something different’

http://metro.co.uk/video/channing-tatum-doing-gambit-1522421/ (http://metro.co.uk/video/channing-tatum-doing-gambit-1522421/)

Channing admitted that the film is still moving forward but that ‘it’s not ready until it’s ready and the studios have to play a chess game with real estate and giving dates and scaring people off certain dates and grab as much real estate as they can’.
‘I’ve never told anybody when we’re going to make this thing [but] we’ve got really lucky in a way, it’s been a blessing in disguise because we were making a certain type of movie that was really hard to reinvent and you get a lot of push back when you try to do something different,’ he added, ‘but then Deadpool and Logan came through and lit a stack of dynamite in that door and blew it off for us so now we’re going off and really able to buck the system and do something different.’

Channing Tatum Reveals Why Gambit Will Be Different To Any Other Marvel Movie


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iczej0h3qcA


Tatum: We rebooted the entire thing. It shouldn`t feel like a big superhero movie and that`s my hope for it. It will feel more like a very tiny sort of New Orleans, crazy, just insane film.

Not a big super hero movie is fine, he's more of a 'street level' type character. Not so sure about 'very tiny'...
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on August 26, 2017, 01:14:26 PM
I also agree that it doesn't need to be a superhero movie. I think it needs to lean in a James Bond or Indy Jones sort of thing but more grounded to New Orleans.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News

With the last update we got a few months ago I have assumed we won't be getting any real news until possibly the very end of this year. At least we now have confirmation that they are hard at work at it. With them finishing up the script and getting the story pieces together as we speak it really seems like we shouldn't expect real news just yet. I'm still thinking hopefully by the end of the year.

Why Channing Tatum Loves Gambit So Much
https://www.cinemablend.com/news/1699969/why-channing-tatum-loves-gambit-so-much (https://www.cinemablend.com/news/1699969/why-channing-tatum-loves-gambit-so-much)

Tatum: “There wasn’t a comic store, but the cartoon was on TV and he was this cool Cajun guy, and he was the easiest person to play as a kid because you could just unscrew the broom handle, get a pack of cards and wrap a bandana around your head. We had a lot of fun throwing cards and trying to take our friends’ eyes out across the living room. He is just cool, man. He is one of the few superheroes that has an actual culture to him. He doesn’t talk like a vanilla American. He is from a specific geo-location, New Orleans, which is a really specific thing.”
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on September 19, 2017, 11:32:36 AM
This is one of the many great things about this show. It really got a lot of kids interested and a lot started looking into the comics. Even me, I liked comics but this show definitely started to get me focusing more on X-Men. It was a simple transition. For the most part you could go from watching the show and then go pick up an X-Men book and pretty much get what was going on. Kind of brilliant.


Honestly that's a big misstep in my opinion today with comics. Marvel currently has such popular movies but if you were a kid and decided to pick up some current comics you wouldn't understand anything or anyone. It seems like it would just be a turn off.

Didn't Gambit interact with the New Mutants during Second Coming in Limbo? That whole Deathbit thing? But I like the idea. If it's real... I think if it wasn't someone would have been able to disprove it before publishing it or after. I'm not betting on it but sometimes this is done intentionally to get a feel for the fan response. Have no clue if this, is that. But CBR and Screenrant both reporting it gives it a bit more cred.

Interesting. If this is true and that is an accurate description of the script it seems like an early version. And I have to say they seemed like they were on the right track from the beginning. I remember after the first script was written and went around to actors and agents there was a buzz that it was a good script. So I'm very interested in what it looks like now and how they feel they've improved it.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Nekobaghira on September 26, 2017, 07:02:10 PM
Wasn't there some time where the script wasn't right? Its so confusing. Wished there was more concrete news for the film.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on September 27, 2017, 06:33:21 PM
If I remember right, the news was first that Chris Claremont wrote a treatment and then Josh Zetumer wrote the screenplay. I remember a couple sources saying that it was a good script and they started auditioning Rebecca Ferguson, Abby Lee, and Lea Seydoux for Belladonna and articles reported that it was a highly contested role. Lea Seydoux landed the role and I believe after this is when the rumor of Channing Tatum leaving the project came out. And even though it was reported that that rumor was totally false a few days later after he officially signed on, from that point on all the negativity and delays followed including Rupert Wyatt dropping out months later.


So I wonder if the script being reported on was this first script they seemed to be going with for a bit. Seems likely.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on September 28, 2017, 06:03:38 PM
Sure. But I believe the point we're making is if someone did read a Gambit script and leaked the plot details to these sites, then it would most likely be the early version of the script due to the fact it apparently went out to people. There was even a casting call that was online for the movie. Honestly, when there was buzz going around about the Gambit script being good, I remember thinking that the script might leak online at some point. But I haven't thought about it in a while until these alleged plot details of the Gambit movie script came out.

I have lurked on this board for like 10 years (maybe longer?), and I have been following the Gambit movie drama since day one.  I'm probably like everyone else here and have been dreaming of a Gambit movie since the early 90's.  I was blown away when it was announced that Fox was actually going to produce it.  Dream come true.


Anyway, what prompted me to finally make an account is the fact that I am ecstatic with all of the latest news of what's going on with the Gambit film.


1.  I was bummed when we lost Doug Liman, I thought he would have been a good fit.  But then I just got the news that they found a new director.  I clicked the article hoping for someone halfway decent, and when I read the name Gore Verbinski, my jaw almost hit the floor.  He is seriously one of my favorite directors of all time.  Few directors can create movies as saturated with atmosphere as Gore.  Not to mention that he proved he can do action just as well.  So pumped that he's on board (now let's just hope he stays on board, lol).


2.  Just the fact that Mr.  Sinister, one of Marvels greatest villains, will be making his debut in the Gambit film is so freaking perfect.  And I never thought about Daniel Craig playing him, but as soon as I read that I instantly realized that would be perfect casting.


3.  I'm a big fan of the rumor of all the supporting X-Men characters that might show up in the film.  If they treat the supporting cast the way the Deadpool film did, it'll be amazing.


I don't know.  I just feel things are finally moving along in a really positive direction for the Gambit film.  The wait I think will totally be worth it.

I think he's going to lose a gang of weight and rock it out to the best of his ability. I think he's going to surprise us. But this is definitely going to be a fully formed Gambit in terms of his the age he'll be portraying. I always saw Gambit as being in his late 20s, early 30s. Tatum can pull that off

I agree. He'll get cut up a little bit for the role and look the part.  And I think being full-fledged Gambit already is the way to go for the movie. If they want, they can cast a young Gambit to show flashbacks... kind of like in the Uncharted series with a young Nathan Drake.  But Gambit's always been on the older side of the X-men anyway, in my view, so the movie starting with him already at that age makes sense to me.

Yeah, he said in this article (https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/entertainthis/2015/07/02/channing-tatum-gambit/77523954/ (https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/entertainthiS/2015/07/02/channing-tatum-gambit/77523954/)) from a couple years ago that he's working to lose some muscle mass, so he's even aware that he's a little too bulky for the role.   


Personally, I hated the idea of him as Gambit when it was first announced but he's really won me over the last couple years with how dedicated he is to getting this movie made.    Throw in Craig as my favorite X-Villain and I'm sold.

It's a shame there's already a movie called Gambit because man, Chess just does NOT do it for me.  But by working title it's probably likely to change?

But yeah FINALLY!!


Working title is just what they call it during production. It's not going to actually be called "Chess"


Deadpool 2's working title is "Love Machine"

Just a working title. I doubt that'll end up the name. More than likely it'll be Gambit with a subtitle like; King of Thieves, or something

That movie you are talking about is OLD. And I've tried watching it and I could get past the first 15 minutes. I think the only worry is anyone thinking its a remake or something. :)

As working titles go, again its good. I doubt “Chess” will be the title … its too vague in general.

 
Ah, thank you! That makes sense

No problem.

 
Agree with you Don, it will be more Xmen sounding as far as titles go.

I'm kind of thinking they will attach the X-Men name to the title somehow.  I feel like the GA isn't super familiar with Gambit and Fox will want to associate him with the franchise as a whole.  Of course, now that I'm thinking about it, Legion, The Gifted, and New Mutants don't have it either, so who knows.


I do hope it has a subtitle like King of Thieves though.  That would be so bad ass.

It's an old film, yeah, I've never seen it.  BUT they did a remake sort of recently, starring Colin Firth I think.  Funny story, I was lurking on some forum or another, maybe CBR, and somebody absolutely LOST IT because they saw that there was a Gambit movie coming out, in just a few short months.  And everybody was like, no dude, nothing to do with the X-Men, but he wouldn't accept this at all, he was overcome with joy that there was a Gambit movie coming out, even though everybody was telling him it's something else entirely.  Plus, no casting, no buzz, nothing, but somehow it was coming out in a month or so. Some people, huh?

Collider talks about it at length during their show. I remember Schnepp saying it was "dead" just a while ago and how no one wants to see a Gambit movie. No Schnepp, you 80s rose-colored glasses wearing snobs don't want to.

Audition tapes are weird because more often than not we don't see the two characters interacting with each other. We get stuff like this, where we see one character and then hear Rando #1, in a totally different accent nonetheless, probably a producer or casting member, and there's negative chemistry between them lol

Haven't posted in here in a while. A lot of stuff going on and I'm all over it. Here it goes.


February 14th 2019 is a perfect date for this movie. Pretty much exactly what i was hoping for. That has been a successful time of year for movies like this. So we can assume filming will start sometime early 2018. By the end of this year they should have most pieces in place for production and casting.


I would really like to hear confirmation on Gore Verbinski from FOX themselves soon.


Don't worry everyone, this movie is not going to be called "Chess". This is the same working title from the first go around. I would expect them to just call the movie "Gambit". It fits the best and no one is going to confuse it with another film. I highly doubt they will put "X-Men" in the title. That would just be an awful decision and defeat the whole purpose of what they're trying to do by establishing Gambit on his own. Personally I think they are going to line up the Gambit film with the Deadpool movies. Just a much better idea at the moment.


Great find on that audition tape purplevit. Really fun to watch. I kind of liked her. Auditions like that are odd and don't necessarily represent what the finished product would be. I wonder if there is any truth to FOX still liking Lea Seydoux for Belladonna. And if there is any truth to Candra being in the movie, that is very interesting. A Gambit movie with Belladonna, Candra, and Sinister in it?... Sign me up.


I really hope it's mostly good news from here on out. This production really can't afford anymore bad press at this point.

Gambit Movie Recruits Mad Max Costume Designer


http://screenrant.com/gambit-movie-costume-designer/


Omega Underground is reporting that Beavan has joined the Gambit team and will be providing the costumes for Tatum’s namesake, among other mutant characters in the movie. Beavan not only won her second Oscar for her Mad Max: Fury Road costumes, she has also provided the striking outfits for several noteworthy period dramas over the years; ranging from Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies to Best Picture Oscar-winner The King’s Speech.

Hmm, I don't agree here. I want Guilds to have unique costumes that will show who are thiefes and who are assassins among them. So Gambit in costume won't be ridiculous there.

I agree that I would like Gambit's "operating" outfit to be some sort of Thieves guild armor/gear for when they're on the job. That way his look can easily translate over to an X-Force movie or whatever and still make sense as his "combat" gear with other heroes in superhero suits.

Agreed. Plus it'd mean Craig as Sinister for a wide array of X-Men films. Not just the Gambit ones. Imagine a movie with Craig as Sinister pulling the strings, Schreiber back as Sabretooth, and Tatum's Gambit?

Oh god that sounds amazing.  The X-Movies in general could use another recurring villain or 2 like that since Mystique and Magneto are both basically good guys now.  Maybe not as prominent as those two were in the original X-Movies, but Sinister pullings strings behind the scenes, like you said, would be great
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News

Nothing official about Craig. In fact someone tweeted about how that rumor was untrue. Don't know who it was or if what they tweet is valid but some article quoted it. We will see though. I agree another big name would be great for this movie. No better character for that than Sinister. And easily a role that can transition to other movies.


There's been some speculation that Candra being the baddie in this Gambit movie is a set up to use the Externals in the X-Force move. That would be pretty cool. They could also throw Sinister in there and they could both segue into the Externals for X-Force.


Actually Verbinski hasn't been officially confirmed yet either but that seems to hold more water right now than Craig. FOX never officially confirmed Doug Liman either but we do know he was officially on board at some point.

Maybe the closer we get with more and more info coming out we will finally start to see more optimism and not so much negativity all over the place.


On imdb I used to get out my frustrations on posters who would say stupid things like "Gambit's a minor character" or "Nobody wants this film" because there are  a lot of dumb comments like that. Imdb was a good place to set people straight but now there is really no place for that anymore. I'll just have to read dumb comments and deal with it now. But oh well, on with the movie news! This should be a fun ride for us.

I think once the big roles start to get filled things will really start moving. I think they'll wait to see who's playing before they start putting together sketches and concepts. I believe the big fish will be whoever get's the Sinister role, and then Bella seeing as she'll most likely be the love interest here. I'm really interested in seeing what kind of style they'll be using in terms of costume and set design.

‘Gambit’ Hires Coen Brothers Production Designer Jess Gonchor

Omega Underground has learned that the studio has hired Oscar-nominated production designer Jess Gonchor, best known for his work with the Coen Brothers.


His credits include True Grit, No Country For Old Men, Inside Llewyn Davis, Burn After Reading, Live By Night, A Serious Man, and Moneyball. Jess has previously worked with both Gore Verbinski and Channing Tatum on films such as The Lone Ranger, Foxcatcher and Hail, Caesar!


Gambit is expected to begin filming sometime between January and February with some of the production filming in New Orleans. Fox has slated it’s release date for February 14th, 2019.

Another great hiring for this project in my opinion. The article makes mention of filming beginning January or February. Definitely seems like they are going to utilize Mardis Gras for the movie. Which just seems like a great idea for a sequence in the movie.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: anya on November 01, 2017, 08:36:27 PM
Every movie set in New Orleans is required by law to have at least one Madi gras scene. ;) of course, Jan and feb are probably the only months they really can film in New Orleans, because after march it's too hot and the cameras will melt.  ;D 
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on November 02, 2017, 05:37:04 PM

This is crazy news. Even if it does go through the transition might not take place for a couple years. And I don't see how Marvel/Disney would not want Channing Tatum's Gambit a part of their universe. I believe this movie will happen regardless. We will see.


Personally, I like the idea of Marvel Studios having a hand in the X-Men movies. The X-movies have been getting screwed up for far too long and I feel Marvel Studios will handle them with love and care.

Oh I don't think Tatum is going anywhere. If it happens I think they'll retain his contract but roll him into the X-Men. I don't think the first thing Marvel would do while reintroducing the brand is put out a Gambit solo where the concept of Mutants in the MCU doesn't exist... Unless they play into the whole multiverse angle and allow the X-Men universe to remain and then start doing crossovers or at least cameos via Doctor Strange. But I highly doubt we'd get any more hard R movies like Deadpool and Logan.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: Rakkner on November 06, 2017, 10:43:13 PM
I'm kind of torn which way I'd like this to play out.  On one hand, the X-Men joining into the MCU would be fan-freakingtastic.  I think I'm in the minority on this board, but this deal could mean we lose Tatum, which I'd love.  I'm just not a fan of his acting.  Although I am fully on board with his movie as he has shown dedication to the role.


On the other hand, Fox has stepped their X-game up lately.  Logan and Deadpool were incredible, The Gifted is great, the story/plot of Apocalypse was awful, but the casting choices, outfits/colors were a step in the right direction.  Losing a Gambit movie would suck though.

New Thor was terrible movie. Everything was like from Lego and in bright colors. Just for kids.
I don`t wont such trash X-Men.


It made loads of money, which mean the Marvel comic publishing division will survive for the foreseeable future.


Disney buying Fox is amazing news for the X-franchise, but I'm a bit wary of having fewer, bigger production companies. That's not good for anyone but Disney.

I'm kinda torn about all this as well. On one hand, I'm glad it seems the talks have stalled bc I'm okay with Fox doing it's own thing. On the other, I can't help but feel that if Disney had acquired the rights to the X-Men, we'd see a resurgence in video games, action figures, cartoons, etc.

You're being too paranoid. He's merely making the point that they first and foremost set out to make a good movie and let everything fall into place from there. He's not implying they don't care if the movie flops or isn't financially successful.

We (Gambit fans) as a group already know there will be detractors, but you really can't dismiss the enthusiasm.  Tatum lobbied, has put his "investment" in and I think that is great.

I will say, Channing Tatum was never my "ideal" for Gambit, but I'm in the - "you like the character and want to do right by him. Bring it!" group.

He's completely won me over from the get-go with his positive attitude and Tatum hasn't let up, he's been patient and working it through. Gotta love that.

Though initially I was sceptical about Channing Tatum playing Gambit, over time I’ve grown to love his enthusiasm about it and the effort he’s putting in to make this happen. I’m hopeful, and if there’s a good script with the right actors playing the right roles, this could make for a interesting and ‘box office material’ film.

For some reason I got the picture of Lee Pace in my head as Sinister. I remember him from Guardians of the Galaxy where he played a villain with looks slightly Sinister-like. And I’ve seen him in Halt and Catch Fire. He seems like a good choice for the role. He’s tall and can look imposing. I might be completely wrong, but somehow he looks the part.

Here you go Nevaratoiel. I'm sure you know him from something. He's a very popular actor.


Hey purp, going by the casting call, the character that appears to be Sinister is mentioned to be aged 40's-50. I think Cranston fits that. Cranston is not exactly who I envision exactly for the part but I could see him doing a good job. Personally I feel the role of Sinister show go to a bigger name type of acot. I think that just makes sense all around. Not that I personally need that.


I do really like the idea of Daniel Craig though. I can really see him doing a good job.

Nah, that'd be the best kept secret in the world unless the big bad in the movie is Sinister and it's revealed at the very end in sort of psyche-out. Deadpool 2 is basically finished with principal shooting if the teaser didnt say enough. I believe they are in post production at the moment.

Chis Claremont wrote the original treatment. Josh Zetumer who wrote the Robocop remake, wrote the first screenplay. Which was rumored to be good. Then Reid Carolin, Tatum's producing and writing partner(who wrote and produced the Magic Mike movies among others) did rewrites on the movie. This is what I know as far as the writing for this movie goes.

I saw him as well on that, he did mention before he only gets in shape for movies that require it otherwise he does not work out, because I bet money they will have him take his shirt off in the film lol It's Interesting, I always tought CT was popular -or are comic book fans always this really critical about casting?

Deadpool took it on the chin for a real long time. Add on top of that all the hate he got from comics readers for being this mainstream hit with all non-comics readers.

Liman's reasoning:
“I never formed a connection. Many of these movies, I don’t have the connection on day one, but I find the connection,” Liman said. “I just never find it. I don’t always find a connection. I want to make a movie that, if anybody else made it, it would be different.”

Well the movie is sure going for a stylized approach. Kinda surprised they aren't passed this point. Typically they wait until they have an idea of what the characters are going to look like (casting). Unless if it's heavily CGI, that is, which it is not from what I can tell. By "heavy" I mean movies that are like 75% animated where it doesn't matter who you cast because they are basically doing voice acting or motion capture.

Interesting choice. Not sure I've seen any movies he's worked on that the cinematography was especially good. Maybe The Ring?

I'm willing to bet you're right. Gambit's never really struck me as a hard R character anyways.

I mean, with how popular Deadpool and Logan were I could see it (especially if Deadpool 2 is successful, which I'm betting it will be). On the other hand, though, I think they're going to want Gambit to be as accessible as possible since he's not exactly as popular as Wolverine or Deadpool in general. Idk. Fox is in an interesting place right now, especially since the talks of them being bought by Disney has been picking up steam again
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on November 29, 2017, 12:00:57 PM
Best bet is to get Gambit in production before ownership switches hands. As long as contracts are signed and work is begun, the movie will be completed. But if this Disney purchase goes through before they start shooting, production may be put on hiatus or shelved indefinitely.

Been awhile since I have seen Logan, but I assume the R was for gore/violence/swearing.  Some will disagree, But I dont see Remy as a big swearing type.


I think you can get away with quite a bit under PG-13 though.

It's nice to have a confirmed start date. It's funny too because recently I was thinking that I wondered if they would begin in March instead to give themselves an extra month for pre-production. I really can't wait for this to start filming and Comic-Con 2018 should be exciting for us.

Quote
Transaction to include 21st Century Fox’s film and television studios, cable entertainment networks and international TV businesses
Popular entertainment properties including X-Men, Avatar, The Simpsons, FX Networks and National Geographic to join Disney’s portfolio
Expands Disney’s direct-to-consumer offerings with addition of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment content, capabilities in the Americas, Europe and Asia; Hulu stake becomes a controlling interest
….

 
The agreement also provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool with the Marvel family under one roof and create richer, more complex worlds of inter-related characters and stories that audiences have shown they love.

The key is now ownership of the Xmen is back at Marvel, their stuff may get released under the Fox banner but now Marvel will have control, which they have wanted for some time now.

It makes me a little nervous that Gambit could at best be delayed at worst cancelled.  Saying that, I would love it if he was part of the MCU but hopefully Disney/Marvel make him a central focus. 


On the other hand, I wonder if Marvel comics will start taking the X-Men seriously again.  Maybe with a Gambit film they'll start sincerely trying to push him in comics.

'X-Men,' 'Fantastic Four' in Flux After Fox-Disney Deal


The long-gestating Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum is finally due to begin shooting in late February 2018 for a February 2019 release. What will be the box-office threshold for Disney to consider that movie a hit, thus warranting a sequel? The answers will lie in a re-evaluation of the projects down the line to see how and if it fits into a broader Marvel strategy, according to sources.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: wantutosigh on December 15, 2017, 08:21:33 AM
And M is right. Before this deal officially goes through it has to go through a regulatory review first to make sure it doesn't violate any antitrust laws. This will last anywhere from 12-18 months. Disney has said they expect it to take 18 months. So it's not like Disney can just start cancelling whatever they want right away. The Gambit movie could very well have come out already and the review will still not be done.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: cajunpirate on December 15, 2017, 08:47:10 AM
The movie has two big names attached to it...Tatum and Gore Verbinski, who did the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies (downside, he also did The Lone Ranger). I'd be shocked if Disney scrapped it, considering it is slated to start filming in early 2018 (I think pushed to March now, but did they really want to be in New Orleans in February around Mardi Gras anyway? Just getting rooms for everyone would have been a nightmare).


On the plus side, this should free up the 'freeze" on Gambit merchandise. Funko, for example, could not do certain X-characters, as Disney put a freeze on them. I remember reading Gambit and Nightcrawler were two of them 

Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: DonPriceTag on December 15, 2017, 09:39:15 AM
I think what changes is expectations. This is a Marvel property now and making 300m may not be acceptable anymore, on the plus side, nor will they want to put out a measly 100k or less. Disney makes investments, not gambles (funny!). Buy Hollywood folk are indeed bringing up Gambit and Multiple Man as in danger of being shelved simply because of not being in production. However the acquisition isn't an overnight thing. It could take months or even a couple years to go into effect due to lingering deals and contracts. I think worst case scenario, they push forward with reintroducing The X-Men and mutants into the MCU and hopefully keep Tatum on in the role. Bad news is, it'd push the date again and make Tatum even older to start which may not be what they want to get into if Disney wants a long running franchise out of it. Fox may not have wanted to reneg on the IMAX deal, but Disney is like the Honey Badger. Honey badger don't give a @&$#.

Haha! Me too.


Point here is this movie is getting made. The deal isn't official until the review is approved. Which will take a while.


The only thing in danger is what happens after this movie comes. Channing Tatum wants a franchise and to continue to play the character. If the movie doesn't do well and doesn't mesh with what they want to do they could just kill Tatum's Gambit and move on. The future of Tatum's take is what is in possible danger. Not his present.


 Campea and others are comparing the Gambit movie situation to Multiple Man, X-23 etc.The Gambit movie production isn't comparible to those others. Gambit is ready to film in 3 months. Multiple Man and X-23 are just vague ideas at this point. X-Force is too but nobody is saying that's in trouble.


Just people speculating about stuff they don't know much about for clickbait purposes. Campea disappoints though because I  feel like he should know more.

“Basically Fox — 20th Century Fox Studios — has some interesting tentpole opportunities, we obviously are going to continue to support that,” he said. “What they’ve done obviously with Avatar, and what they did with Deadpool, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Planet of the Apes is another one. We’ll stay in that business. Not all of it will be branded anything other than what it’s branded today, as a for instance. How much we will create under that banner, we’re still uncertain. It’s going to take a while from a regulatory perspective. They’ll continue to develop in that period of time and at such time as we close this deal and have control, we’ll take stock and really look carefully at what their slate looks like going forward and how many movies it would make sense to make.”


That is what we need to hear! I would be very mad if Disney get canceled the movie before filming starting in 2 or 3 months.

It's said the regularly process will take up to a year to complete. While the deal is sealed, nothing will be concrete until it passes government sanction and scrutiny. Gambit movie should be safe as long as they allow that which is in motion to stay in motion. Not just their movies but TV and Cable channels as well.

Agreed. And 20th Century Fox is not going to stop doing business because of this deal. It will continue as it is expected to do. Whatever projects they're working on or have started should stay the same. Companies don't stop doing business because it was bought by another.

Later projects may get a review or change in status but by then, the merger will be much closer to done.

Yup 100% right Neko. Fox is still in the business of making money. So long as they have these rights, they'll make movies that they believe will make them money. Gambit will. X-Force will. I would love to see Franco get his shot at Multiple Man before the rights shift back too.

Gambit movie has hired Tom Struthers as the stunt coordinator and Academy Award-winner Joel Harlow as the makeup artist.


Tom has previously worked on Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Black Panther, Infinity War, etc.
Joel has worked on Logan, Black Panther, Inception.


Katrissa 'Kat' Peterson also joins the crew as the visual effects coordinator. She has worked on Guardian of the Galaxy vol.2, Black Panther, Iron Man, Captain America: Winter Soldier.

Paneo01, You seem quite worried and I understand. But this movie is getting made and that's awesome for us. You can't pay attention to posters on the internet who are tools. There has been nothing but false negativity reported on this movie so of coarse everyone wants to slag it off.

Well, no. X-Force and Franco need to accelerate and get into production. If they aren't committed by time Disney gets through, they'll be in trouble. Gambit has already hired people and signed contracts. XFO and MM don't even have scripts. The same with the planned New Mutant's trilogy. The first one is done, but if they don't start production on the 2nd within the year, its in trouble. Seeing as the first movie doesn't even come out until 2018, I doubt they are going to start the ball rolling on a sequel before they know it'll make money in the theaters and on the back-end (DL and disc sales). What annoys me about the future is the X-Men. They are finally getting into their more sci-fi phase and it looks like Dark Phoenix will be the last of it as I doubt Marvel is going to go cosmic during their first couple of outings or even come close to touching another Phoenix story. I expect them to do more grounded story lines. So I might get my Operation Zero Tolerance, X-tinction Agenda  and X-Cutioners Song movies. The only space story under Disney I think we'll see is the Phalanx Covenant because it's so much unlike anything else that's out there.

‘Gambit’ 10 Week NOLA Shoot Confirmed – Budget Reportedly $155M :D


http://omegaunderground.com/2017/12/18/gambit-10-week-nola-shoot-confirmed-budget-reportedly-155m/


Late last night, we reported that Gambit would spend 10 weeks shooting in New Orleans starting in March. Along with undisclosed other locations expected as well.


This is now confirmed by NOLA.com, who confirmed our report and added that Gambit’s budget is around $155 million.


Channing Tatum is playing Remy, while Lizzy Caplan is in talks to play the female lead.


Gambit is set for release on February 14th, 2019.

 "Gambit is a "Obscure" character?
https://screenrant.com/gambit-production-budget/ (https://screenrant.com/gambit-production-budget/)
Quote
Given Deadpool’s popularity as a character and Hugh Jackman’s many years as Wolverine, it would be odd for Fox would commit such a sizable budget to a relatively obscure character like Gambit. What’s more, Gambit and his backstory hardly lend themselves to a massive blockbuster. While Remy’s mutants powers will certainly take more work than those of Deadpool or Wolverine, it’s unclear where the rest of the money will be going, assuming the $155M number is accurate.

The movie will lack the name recognition of Spider-Man and Wonder Woman and the Marvel Studios name that helped-Doctor Strange

Thats not a bad thing in regards to releasing movies under 20th Century Fox brand name. It is a brand and from a marketing point of view, Disney should keep it and use it for material that is not "Disney"esque. I mean R stuff and other things that Disney is more careful about. I know there is fear with Disney's ownership but ... they do branch out without the name to make money.

And I could see them releasing it under the FOX name as a way to hedge their bets/test the waters with the character. If it fails, they can reboot the character and blame it on FOX. If it succeeds, they can say they say it's another Deadpool situation where they bring the character over from the Fox Universe (this is assuming they bring all of the X-Men to the MCU)

Do you know this to be true? Because they are making it seem like this is a "new" report. I have to admit it does seem very high. I just find it odd that it is the exact same amount that came out the first time around when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct. The amount hasn't changed a bit because it would seem that they made some changes to the film. Just like when they released that casting call a few months ago. It seemed like it was the exact same casting call that came out back when Rupert Wyatt was directing. Are they finding old info and releasing it as "new" leaked behind the scenes info now? I do have to admit that all crew so far have been top notch hirings. If this is the budget, get ready for the douche's on Collider to NEVER SHUT UP about it.

Exactly. Even though these articles know this is an old figure, they are still reporting it and flipping about it being so high. This is the type of coverage this movie has gotten the whole time.

I also see what you mean about the casting list.

Yes, we need confirmed news from CT or the studio etc, not old stuff brought back up or speculation.

For sure. Even when that figure came out in 2015 it was never confirmed by the studio or CT or anybody of importance so I was skeptical of it even back then let alone now. But it won't stop people from talking about it. I won't even watch Campea or Collider until something official comes out because that's all they're going to talk about until that happens.

Budgets are funky things in the film industry. Does 155M mean for the film, or for the film AND advertising? Nothing is really clear in any recent article. Honestly 155M for the entire thing seems an entirely reasonable swing for Gambit. 155m FOR Gambit number 1? One can only dream


-cough Banshee- -cough secrets- -yetthda-



My main hope for the film is to get a good visual aesthetic and not let the plot swing around into to many corners. Just tell a good story, a measured spectacle and a few really good lines moments. Anything else will just be the tadow. I feel good about looking forward to this movie.

Most advertising budgets equal, or in Deadpool's case, double the film's production budget. So unless they are going to give Gambit a 55m production budget and 100m in advertising, I doubt this number includes advertising. But I'd kinda of like that. Give or take 10m (70 prod, 80 advertising), I think they'd be a bit safer, but most tent poll movies like this spend 100 to 200m in advertising alone.

Probably not but Marvel now has a vested interest in the Gambit movie doing well. Marvel might promote Gambit heavily in comics/cartoons/games to go with the movie. And if the story allows, Tatum's Gambit might be a character they shift right over into the MCU. In what fashion that is remains to be seen. If they were smart they wouldn't attempt to connect Gambit to the Singer X-Men world and have it set more in Deadpool's universe. But I believe FOX will push this movie pretty hard themselves assuming production goes well and they feel good about it.

Blah blah blah, all I heard is the fight coordinator from my favorite Marvel movie is going to be doing my fav characters movie. I'm happy. Everything in Winter Soldier was so hard hitting and fierce, not to mention practical. Can't wait to see what they have in mind.

Lol, good perspective... I wonder is Cranston is in the running at all for sinister...


On the other topic, I would think that any money the movie makes would eventvo to Disney once they take over the assets, so one would think they should want it to do well. But I guess it all depends on what their overall plans are for rebooting the whole franchise.

This brings up something that I haven't really seen discussed here at all. Let's say the Gambit movie does well and they decide to carry on Tatum's character to the MCU. Potentially, we would have a Gambit who is pushing 40 (Tatum will be 38 when the movie comes out). This wouldn't be a problem for me but what if they try to do an O5 movie where the team is all in their teens? How would y'all feel about a potential universe where we have a 40 y-o Gambit and a 20 y-o Cyclops? Feels weird to me.


Of course, this is all just speculation - there are a lot of different ways the universe could go - but I wanted to hear some other thoughts.

yeah he's older, but if he drops weight he'll be able to pull off late 20s early 30s, which is Gambit's age range... how long he'll be able to do that is something else entirely.

That's fair. I'm probably just over-thinking it this early before anything is even announced. I don't question Tatum's love for the character or his commitment to this movie, but I'd hate for them to integrate the character into the MCU only to have 1) Tatum get burnt out on it and leave, in which case we'd be out a Gambit or 2) have a Gambit who is significantly older than the rest of the cast. Sure, if the O5 is in their 20s, I'd be fine with it. But teen O5 and a 40 y-o (hell, even a 30 y-o) Gambit is weird imo.


Again, though, just speculating.

This is just a bunch of nonsense that you just have to expect in this day and age. Gambit isn't exactly the most PC character on the planet so of coarse you will have idiots like this feel it's there duty to point it out. A character who is a bit of  a womanizer and sweet talks woman is a big target in today's climate. "A woman should write him", he's creepy", "The way he treats Rogue is not okay". This is all a bunch of agenda filled garbage and we know it.  That's all this is and it's not really worth any of us paying attention to.  I think it speaks volumes when you look at all the female fans Gambit has had over the years. Probably more than Rogue. But somehow the very idea of Gambit is offensive. BULL****! :gambit:


I don't care about the "Nobody wants this movie" crap either. Nobody was clamoring for Iron, Captain America, Thor, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, or Guardians of the Galaxy either. But those movies were made and people loved them. That's how movies work. The main character doesn't have to be a household name to make a good film that people like.

I don't think there are many people who care, it's just those who do want him to be bi are really vocal about it. Personally, I've always read him as bi but it wouldn't break my heart if it was never explicitly stated.

I've envisioned him acting that way if he -really- needs something for a job, but in all his history and backstory I don't recall it ever really being shown, or really even hinted.


However, with what they did to Iceman, and the complete backlash to just sort of shoehorn in that he was gay - it left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths, mine included. If it was a gradual reveal, I wouldn't have minded... with hints thrown in here and there before the reveal. But it was just sort of BAM - gay. Introducing characters that way is fine too (Northstar), but I don't think if there have been any suggestions or hints that it is needed.


Especially not now, with the potential MCU/Fox merger... not a great time to rock the boat.


PLUS, seeing how well Deadpool did as a movie when they stick to the source material? Yeah, it's typically a formula for success. Do the legit thing first, -then- experiment.

No kidding. Marvel's editorial said no to Asmus in going in that direction for Gambit. Why its deemed to be so important for his character I have no clue.

Bring him back to his glory days, I don't need his sexuality changed when he's not even the character we know and love.

Right. He's not above flirting to try to get what he wants (see: Daken) but that's just it--it's an act.

I remember people used to joke about Iceman being gay, but the way that was handled in canon was so clumsy.

Its being spun like it's some detriment or slight to the character or LGBT community, when the editor that said "no" is gay himself. He saw it as unnecessary, and I agree. How I see it, it's a little too on the nose (just like "Black Panther and the Crew"; black superheroes, that all seem to know each other, in the hood saving the day. For real? Really? I mean really? Who thought that was a good idea?! I'm a black man, and I'm saying that was a cringy idea). The well-dressed slender man that wears pink and purple turns out to be bi-sexual... Bit of stereotyping imo.

I also agree, that that change isn't necessary and my view has nothing to do with LGBT nor would I think it would be a slight to Gambit. And I agree on the stereotyping, that isn't necessary either. While I'm thinking of it, not all good looking men are bi or gay - some of them are hetero (gasp). LOL

There is plenty of characters than can and do represent, its how its written that is failing.

I wasn't going to chime in on this but since we're still talking about it I'll throw in  my two cents. To me, Gambit is one of the worst choices to make bi-sexual. Gambit is the quintessential Ladies Man. I don't know how you guys feel but I always felt like Gambit was totally in love with women. He's a pure ramantic Romeo type. All his great chemistry comes from female characters. Whether they be partners, love interests, or villains there is definitely a rapport his character naturally has with females. He really doesn't have any interesting or deep connections with any male characters. Outside of having a competitive rapport  with other men simply due to their alpha male status's. Not even any real bromances to speak of. But he is fully interested in the ladies. That we know for sure. Making him bi just comes off like bad fan-fiction they pulled out of the blue. Why? Because he is sexual? So because he is sexual they have to make him into both sexes? Is it to make him more with the times? More diverse? To cater to bisexuals? It seems insulting. To everyone. I just don't get it. It makes no sense.


And I am not a fan of how he is depicted sometimes as a "pretty boy". When I think of Gambit I think of a ruggedly handsome type with a smooth style.

I would disagree with this.  He had pretty great chemistry with Daken in the crossover between X-23 and Daken.  He just doesn't have any long standing relationships but usually has shown good chemistry with a Wolverine or Bishop when they actually bother to write him with other guys. 

While I don't necessarily want him to be bi, I don't know that I would care if he was provided it was done right.  I kind of view it that if he were bisexual it would be along the lines of how Lucifer is portrayed on the TV show.  Usually seen with a ton of women and in love with a girl but not opposed to the occasional hook up with a guy.  I just would never see him in any sort of long term relationship with a guy.

And it's all the same stuff anyway. This particular one was either written by someone who read comics in the '80s and loves Kitty and/or b.) presents the idea that Kitty deserves her own movie more than Gambit, because we need more female superheroes rather than another cis white male. (Which isn't wrong, but I don't see why one has to be done in favor of another.)


As for the movie itself, my only reservations at the moment are CT (but I *am* going to give him a chance) and Jeff Zetumer--I'm worried because he hasn't done much, and apparently the RoboCop script wasn't very good.

Verbinski news is nuts. Expect a new Gambit director announced shortly as Fox is intent on sticking to that start date from what I've heard.

I've lost my enthusiasm over this film about a month ago. I'm almost 100% certain that the X-Men movies will be re-booted as soon as 2019-2020, which makes 'Gambit' almost pointless. 
Not saying this film won't be made. None of the articles have stated that, and Verbinski was in talks to direct it, not sure if it was ever official?
Personally I'd rather see Gambit introduced in an X-Men film, then again, we might have to wait 3-4 films for that to happen. So yeah, it's a strange situation...

Gambit is seeing its release date move from Feb. 14, 2019 to June 7, 2019. The Channing Tatum vehicle just lost its director  — Gore Verbinski exited Thursday — and the search is on for a replacement.


But studio insiders believe the project, which is described as having a heavy comedic tone as it revolves around a heist, will do better as a summer Marvel movie.

They're pretty deep in pre-production. Leitch was announced few weeks after Miller left Deadpool sequel. Expect news soon.


Additional Gambit note: Hearing Fox intends to bring the film to SDCC, so that's another reason I wouldn't expect any further delays.

What do I do now? Just give up? No one has been more positive than me about this movie. What am I supposed to think now? This is the last thing this movie needed. Even if all will be fine and new director comes in and back on track, this last piece of bad press is very damaging. I thought it could easily rise above the bad press it had already gotten but this definitely hurts. If it's not going to happen just let me know now and stop torturing me!!! Three years of this is just upsetting and cruel.


They never officially announced Gore Verbinski which had me skeptical because it was the same thing with Doug Liman. But at this point I thought it was good to go on the director side of things.


I love the crew they've assembled too.


FOX clearly want to make this movie. What's the problem?!

Exactly. Deadpool and John Wick 1 were made by director debuts. Both movies are success, have awesome action and are among my favourites action movies.
If they will go with someone new for Gambit then I would be ok with it.


If movie would be bad then big name director won`t save it from critics either.

At this point, I don't even care if this movie is good.  I just want it to be made.  The fact is even if it stinks then more likely, Gambit just gets rebooted anyways.  I would almost prefer a teen Gambit TV series like FabNic suggested.


But in the interim, I want this movie to be made just to see what Tatum's vision of Gambit looks like.


As for this causing bad press, as long as they nail the marketing and trailer then it won't matter.

I agree 100%. I want to see Tatum's vision because the guy deserves a shot at it after all the hell he's been through to get it made, but I don't necessarily want his Gambit to be the MCU version (I want someone unknown and younger for that). Gambit would be perfect for a tv series.
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News
Post by: remydat on January 12, 2018, 12:10:14 PM
Yeah a teen Gambit series showing his Thieve's Guild years would be great and there would so much to explore.  Just a quick example.


1st season can be Gambit about Gambit joining the TG and meeting Bella culminating with Bella and Gambit finally getting together at the end.


2nd season can be Gambit and Bella navigating their families and the warring between the two Guilds with a mysterious benefactor hinted.


3rd season can introduce Candra as benefactor, Sinister as a Guild client, and other mutants ending with the Wedding.


4th season can be Gambit exiled and being hunted by the Assassin's Guild with him meeting Genevieve and Frenzy for the first time.


5th season can be him running around with Scalphunter, love triangle with Genevieve and Frenzy culminating in Genevieve's death at the hands of Sabretooh


6th season can be him working for odd jobs for Sinister and trying to hunt down Sabretooth.


7th season can be him starting the Marauders ending with the MM.


Of course just rambling here but so much story material to work with.

Its almost too late for restructuring and headbutting. If the time table stays true, Disney won't have any actual control for some time. Fox has plenty of projects to keep rolling. They have to keep going because of prior agreements.

I don't know, its crazy. I want the movie.

I'd take something akin to Runaways for Gambit on TV. I like your ideas Remydat. :)

Oh, yeah. That's right. I mean at this point they might as well use him if the X-Universe is going to be rebooted anyways (that is, if Gambit is part of that universe). I could, however, see them pulling a switcheroo and subbing him for a villain who is very similar to keep their options open for if they do decide to integrate Tatum's Gambit into the MCU

Of course, I am biased but a movie Gambit in his late 20s, early 30s and a TV gambit that is a teen going through his time before the X-men makes perfect sense for me.

Dang, hadn't even thought about that. Don't get me wrong, I admire his passion for the character and the movie but I could see that being counterproductive at a point. Is it still on track to start shooting in March? Seems like a tight timeline if they haven't announced a new director yet
Title: Re: Gambit Movie News

Too many cooks in the kitchen I guess.  Sounds like Tatum needs a director who understands Tatum is ultimately in charge.  Time will tell if his influence has a similar effect as Reynolds.


He probably needs a young director like Miller as even with Miller we saw what happens when a director achieves success.  He and Reynolds clashed on DP 2 in a way Miller likely would not have on DP when he was lesser known.

 @misskubelik  Why doesn't Channing Tatum just get Soderbergh to/direct GAMBIT and let him turn it into an X MEN HEIST movie. Surely someone in Hollywood gets how this is the solution right.

It's already a heist movie from what's been said of the script. And if it's not, it's a little late in the game to go changing the script. Doing it once or however many times just chased off their 3rd director.

I think if Soderbergh was interested in Gambit movie then he would be announced before Wyatt and Gambit would have been released 2 years ago.

Cool fanart pic with Tatum as Gambit. Found it from some video review and made print screen.

Yeah the art is cool but the video not so much. The guys from this channel are not Gambit fans at all. I watched it yesterday because I wanted to see what kind of nonsense they would come up with this time and they didn’t disappoint. The video's purpose is to mock the movie saying that it could only be salvaged it if it were “a redneck musical directed by Steven Soderbergh, starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey (who they don’t even mention again). It’s really ridiculous. All the directors dropping out and delays took a toll and it’s not without reason there has been too much pessimism.

I didn't watch that video. That is why I posted only pic.

Anybody read this? IMO it actually makes a few valid points.  https://www.comicbookmovie.com/x-men/gambit/editorial-why-the-gambit-movie-fell-apart-and-what-21st-century-fox-can-do-next-a157095

 I’m so tired of "Gambit is not popular enough to carry his own movie" argument. Marvel has proved it not true repeatedly.

Harris kind of retreads a lot of the same stuff we've heard like "Gambit's usually known as part of the X-Men, not on his own" or "He's not as well known as Deadpool or Wolverine" and then doesn't really offer any ideas of what they should do next other than "Pull the plug on it". Also, it's kind of annoying how he (and Josh Wilding - the author to the article he linked to) seems to think that just because the movie would have a comedic tone, that it means it will most likely be and outright comedy. Iron Man had a heavy comedic tone imo but it wasn't an outright comedy by any means.

...WTH? Deadpool was not mainstream before his movie. No one outside of comic book readers and whatever children were watching that Spiderman cartoon had ever heard of him outside of a couple video game appearances. Gambit was part of one of the most influential TV shows of a generation. Prior to the Deadpool movie, Gambit had a way larger fanbase than Deadpool. That's a fact. Deadpool broke through with that movie and if they can do that with an obscure character like that, a well known one will slay if it's done right. as bad as Wolverine Origin's was and how small a part Gambit played in it, he stood out in the film as a bright spot.

So true. I know a lot of people disliked Kitsch and his accent, but I personally really liked him

Kitsch was fine.  The problem was the character he played was not Gambit just like Reynolds didn't play Deadpool.

They played characters that were like cousins to Gambit and Deadpool.

I get where you're coming from but I don't think Gambit was nearly as bad as Deadpool

Yeah wasn't saying it was bad.  Just saying it really wasn't Gambit.

They wrecked Deadpool in that movie. I really felt for his fans. Kitch was okay as Gambit, the effects with his eyes, and the action sequences wasn't too bad with the exception of Logan knocking him out for comedic effect.
