I had some spare time so I found Jordan D. White at Tumblr :)

My question: Is there any hope to see Fabian Nicieza writing Gambit again? Gambit by Nicieza/Skroce is my favourite comic book series ever.

His answer: I am not in charge of Gambit, so it’s not up to me. You want to track down Daniel Ketchum.


I found it interesting because it was Jordan D. White`s idea to put Gambit vs Deadpool and he is the editor of this mini.
Ketchum is the editor for all X books and editor with Brevoort for Uncanny Avengers.
Also if I am right, Ketchum was the one fightnig for Gambit solo in 2012.

So what do you think? If Jordan D. White hadn`t planned Deadpool V Gambit then we would have only cameo in UA for Gambit?

Or he will have bigger role in UA later? I doubt really because Duggan is ignoring all Gambit questions in X-Po.

How about a mini-series requiring the top thieves. . . something like a major heist from Doom's castle? I could only come up with 4 who would fit the bill. . . Gambit, Storm, Ant-Man and Black Cat.  Not a bad "New Fantastic Four" line-up.  While Storm is the logical leader / honest and trust-worthy type, the other three make for a very unpredictable line-up.

Hey now, hold your tongue... Gambit and Storm's movie rights don't belong to Marvel. How dare you offer a story in which MCU characters interact with X-Men other than dominating them physically, socially and politically. For shame.

What was I thinking? Consider my wrist slapped.

Revised team: Ant-Man, Black Cat, Donald Duck & Goofy (from Kingdom Hearts)

Gambit & Storm can remain in limbo (at least Gambit can. . . Storm at least has a book)

Getting back to Deadpool v Gambit. If White has no control over Gambit where was it stated it was his idea for the book? It could have been something the editors through out there for a pitch and he was given the editorial job of the book.

Having pondered that, I'm just glad Gambit is in a mini. I don't care about him being in a book anymore. I'll take minis with concentrated Gambit than book where he's wallpaper or there for the sake of drama for Rogue.

I think it was stated in some interview with Deadpool V Gambit writers that it was White's idea to put Deadpool and Gambit together in book to pull con-jobs.

PREVIEWSworld: Can you both give us the scoop on how this project came together? How did you two communicate ideas/tweaks during production?

Ben Acker:  It was the brainchild of our editor Jordan D White who pitched us the idea of a story in which Deadpool and Gambit pull a con.

'Nother Cracked article, this time about films the writers are convinced will never actually get made. First on the list? Gambit.

So I guess it's too much to ask for an article that doesn't take shots at him. I do find it funny that apparently Channing is the only Gambit fan ever.

The author of the piece has been set straight by several commenters, which is nice.

Funny thing about Gambit's fan... Most of them have never read a comic book in their life. Gambit shot to stardom following his inclusion in TAS. Millions upon millions of people who are fans of Gambit questioned why he was in the first 2 or 3 X-Men movies and don't even know we were once 3 months away from shooting a solo movie. Had a co-worker out of the blue started talking about how much he loved watching him on X-Men a d thought he was getting a movie. When I told him its generally been cancelled he was very disappointed. For fun, I asked a couple other people I know and Gambit was always the first or second X-Men they named from the show. Typically second to Wolverine.
