Villain who caught Gambit's card is from previews for All New Wolverine 18.

Gambit already did huge explosions in it.
And he definetely wasn't trying to blow soldiers into pices. And Gambit was throwing it into them

Ok... That doesn't really help matters as it says more about the status quo. It begs to reason that this approach isn't an isolated incident. And trust friends... I'm perfectly calm. To be in other status would say I had expectations. I'm basically a battered woman. An affection starved man living on hope

I still positive about Gold :)
Silva posted a lot of good sketches with Gambit and only 1 possibly negative.

I like the cover and I liked that RB Silva is drawing the issue. I'm a little apprehensive of the content hinted at because I just want Gambit to be shown as confident.  If he has a lead on this new villain and gets caught in snag and the X-Men find out, fine. But don't sacrifice his competence as a master thief, h2h specialist, and grown ass man.

If he's written well and sticks around then I'll gladly pick the book up.

Thing is.. I'm not unrealistic. I'm not asking for Gambit to save the day or be some sort of symbol of awesomeness. But I am requesting a degree competence that is comparable to the people around him. Gambit is not a screw-up that needs to be saved every time we see him... I'm just tired of him being portrayed as some kind of loser, third-rate character. This guy along with a handful of others helped keep Marvel afloat during his first decade of existence. Just sucks that these old-guard writers continue to dump on him just because theyd rather focus on other characters. I'd rather him stay in limbo than keep popping up just to make others look better. There is an entire generation of readers that have seen Gambit be what we know him to be.

I understand your frustration.  Gambit is drawn awesomely, he looks cool, the book seems to focus on him, sounds great. 

BUT it does say that he needs saving and that what he does best is get in over his head.  We can't blame anybody for being cautious, Gambit really is written as a bit of a punching back these days. 

I'll be cautiously optimistic though because what else can we do at this point?

Super tragic story but it still find it hard to believe that in any reality Wolverine was able to wipe out each and every X-Man in a single go... I'd buy him tracking them down individually over time but that's even a hard sell because the longer it'd take the more prepared they'd be. Just too many powerful characters to fell by a slasher IMO.

Yeah the concept may be a questionable, but I'm enjoying the hell out of the book.

Sure thing!  For those who don't read OML, which seems like mostly everyone, the next arc will be Logan basically traveling through his past. I'm REALLY hoping when the time comes in the point of Logan's past, we'll see him interact with Gambit. I think OML and Gambit together would be so much fun and hysterical because YOU KNOW Remy would rag on him for being so much older.  I know, I know, it's just another guest appearance and a wish and we haven't done real well with those recently.. but I'd still enjoy it.

Now that made me thinking about Old Man Logan together with Old Man Remy (Witness). That could be interesting but no writer cares/knows for the second old man.

I've always been interested in those types of characters... Old Man Logan, Witness, they finally introduced and Old Man Wade of sorts in Deadpool. Give me these types of characters over the de-aged ones any day .

Per CBR  the film is still in 'active development ' and they hope to be ready to shoot next year. Can't link BC potato phone, but I wanted to alert y'all.

Here ya go:

http://www.cbr.com/channing-tatum-gambit-ryan-reynolds-deadpool/?utm_source=CBR-TW&utm_medium=Social-Distribution&utm_campaign=CBR-TW&view=list

I know a lot of this is just more words and we've heard these types of words before... but the comment relating Tatum to Gambit and Reynolds to Deadpool and Jackman to Wolverine is EXTREMELY refreshing to hear, encouraging, and major respect points towards Tatum.

It's become a passion project for him and that's the best way to make the movie. I wouldn't be surprised if he got advice from Reynolds or Jackman to hang in there and keep pushing for it. Glad it's working.
