Gambit / Re: Gambit Watch 2021

I've been saying this for a while. But I think the uptick in Gambit merchandise and talk about Gambit outside the comic books suggests that the MCU has plans for the character.

Funny, we've waited years for Gambit to finally get a pop. Now in the last 12 months he's had about 5 or 6. I think he's getting a black light pop as well.
He's popular and prominent enough in the merchandise world. Hopefully the MCU and maybe even a new animated series will help things.
I've given up on the comics, it's just never gonna happen...and no one one buys comics anymore, so he's better off getting a push in other media.
Agreed. The writers they have are terrible. I don't like the direction or the lack of care for history.

While I may not be being books, I still get a mailer from my local comic shop.
Women of Marvel #1Way of X #1 (features Nightcrawler on the cover).
I don't know much about them but I think we've got a few Nightcrawler fans here.

X-Men / Re: X-Men reboot?

So, what are you guy's predictions? How are the X-Men or mutants for that matter going to make it into the MCU?


An off-the-wall idea I have after watching Falcon and the Winter Soldier is using the displaced people that remained on earth during the snap. With people/ animals decreasing by 50% all over the world - borders were basically abolished. Countries and territories welcomed new residents to help rebuild. When half the planet's population returned - most of those people that had built new lives for themselves were displaced and placed into refugee camps, and quarters, not unlike ghettos. As we've seen in the show - they aren't pleased and that sentiment grew into the Flag Smashers.


Now, I'm still holding onto the possibility of the MCU continuing to borrow from Marvel Universe 1610 (the Ultimate Universe). In that universe, the x-gene was artificial, developed from experiments on Logan (patient zero). A sort of retro-virus was created and it spread like a disease infecting people and rewriting their DNA. In Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we learned that diseases spread rapidly in these camps due to poor conditions. What if someone deliberately or mistakenly infects people with a retrovirus? By having people from all over the world mixed into these camps - it would ensure that mutants are, for the most part, equally dispersed and not concentrated in one area - thus mimicking natural global proliferation.


Those infected wouldn't just have to deal with their new condition but also have a built-in distrust of "outsiders" and already dealing with feelings of disenfranchisement. It'd most likely fast-track "villains" and groups like the "Brotherhood" created by people who were without power - now having it.  I also noticed an "X" on one of the gates of the GRC compounds. If it's used enough throughout the camps - I could see it co-opted by them as a reminder of where they came from as opposed to being Xavier's name or for the "X-gene", which may not even be called that.


Then there's always the Multiverse of Madness just scrambling everything up... Not as lazy as saying "they were always here" - but still pretty lazy.


What are your thoughts?

I'd go all in and give Gambit his own film right away. Disney knows he's popular enough and he has the narrative scope for 3 solo films. The lack of appearances throughout the Fox era gives him the advantage of bringing something new to the table. Don't make the same mistake that Fox did when they decided to introduce Gambit in a film based in the 70s revolving around Wolverine...where he ended up stuck in that timeline. Think bigger.

Hmm... Put it this way... If Gambit ends up in the Deadpool movie there's no chance Feige will allow the writers/producers to damage the brand. It's why only the fringiest of fringe characters were heavily featured in those movies as gags. All the other characters were treated with respect or just made passing cameos.

Fringe characters: Bedlam, Shatterstar, Ajax, Negasonic, Vanisher, Rusty, Blk Tom, Copycat, Painkiller etc.


Mains (protected): Cable, Domino, Juggernaut, Colossus, whole XMA cast.


Gambit would fit into the later list. Used but held in high regard. Juggs got the hardest rub out of them, but he was also a villain - so, yeah.

If Disney plans on making money off of the Gambit brand - they'll protect it. Full stop. On the plus side, if Deadpool 2 is any indication, the 3rd will have a great budget. So any use of Gambit that is indeed protected, will undoubtedly look really good on screen.

Him wanting the character in the movie (allegedly) and him actually being in the movie are two different things. I don't think it would make much sense introducing Gambit as a side character in a movie about Deadpool. One thing about Disney is that they recognize and exploit potential when they see it. I'm sure they realize that Gambit could be another Deadpool (in terms of popularity and success) if they play their cards right. I think they'd find a smarter way to introduce him. But we'll see. Aren't these the same people who reported that other stuff about Tatum?
Agreed. Apples and Oranges at this point.


I don't think the source is credible anyway. One source and nobody else is rehashing it? yeah, okay, filler article for click bait, I think.
