This all sounded great. They seem very confident in this source. A Gambit series on Disney + or hulu would make me so excited. Sounds like Kevin Feige wants to make hulu a real player now and could use this series to help put it on the map. A series is a great way to introduce Gambit before putting him in a movie. All I can say is, if it's true that Kevin Feige is a big Gambit fan, then that is great for all of us.

Lords of the Long Box Rumour: Gambit series is planned by Disney.

Characters being reserved for it. Probably Disney + or even Hulu if darker. Very early in concept.
Kevin Feige really likes a character. He wants to do like a modern take on Maverick. It is going to be based in Nola.

Characters that Marvel wants to use for an upcoming Gambit MCU Series:
-   Thieves and Assassins Guilds
-   Etienne Marceaux – Probably a flashback
-   Marauders
-   Candra
-   Pig
-   Bella Donna Boudreux


Gambit Series to be kind of a modern western set in NOLA.
Tatum is definitely not playing. Probably a younger actor.
Rogue is tied up to Captain Marvel. Probably won`t appear.

Thanks for the info. I'm still not quite convinced yet, it all sounds like rumour/speculation, and the big comic/pop culture sites aren't writing anything about it. So...we'll see. If Feige is a big Gambit fan, then that's a huge positive.

I will say this, the MCU seem to cater for fans and listen to what they want. Whereas Fox were much more self-indulgent and a lot less ambitious. So who knows? A live-action Gambit will do a world of good for the character, and if that happens it'll reflect well on print material as well.

A Gambit series based in NOLA... Why didn't we come up with that? Sheesh...
Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

I remember way back when with Nicieza writing the Gambit solo, he was in a chat about the character and was asked if they should make a movie. He said, that he would rather see Gambit in a TV show set in NOLA. That it would work better for the character. I don't have his exact words, heck, I don't even have that saved anywhere anymore. He definitely thought the character would benefit more from the small screen than the big screen. :)

According to this source they have they want to make NOLA something of a hub of activity for the mcu going forward. If true, you gotta tell Gambits story.


If they are researching storyline and characters for this show, I hope they talk to Nicieza and pick his brain. Not just Claremont.

They need not only Nicieza but also Steve Skroce. Skroce worked on Matrix and can make anything visually awesome.
