Like most writers ... they say things but either don't follow through or can't via editorial. Who knows. LOL

Yeah I remember him saying that too. Real shocker it didn't happen  :crazy2:

You can't take anything a writer says these days with out a grain of salt. You never know what their endgame is. It's pretty annoying. That's why Asmus was so awesome.. he was always honest and upfront with us.

I do like their idea of Sinister and Gambit as mentor and unwilling protege.  It would be kind of cool if they built a Gambit franchise around Sinister being his long term antagonist as it would give it something a lot of the other X-men films don't have.  I suppose you could say Charles vs Magneto but Magneto flirts with being good too much whereas this would be more of a pure good vs evil with the evil continually pushing Gambit into bad decisions.

That was a fun read! The Sinister angle seems like it would be the most rewarding for Fox, story wise. It would give them a chance to present a schemer and experimenter whose depravity surpasses, from the movies, Stryker's.

It would be pretty awesome if they went for a cleverness and not just persistence in a hero. They could do something like having the Thirty Six Stratagems as the basis of Remy's action, revealing it at the end sort of like Ocean's 11; a quick series of scenes showing the prior reckless actions, that Gambit is prone to, all had a purpose. If they have the book in the original Chinese, they have a quick way of showing two different characters took the time to learn another language; Gambit and whomever reads it. Which would be a cool way to introduce another of the X-Men.

This would also be a chance to portray it as the deeply flawed, all too human character vs evil

I seriously have no patience for it lol.

Having said that, it's  a good "15 ways" for a Gambit movie haha.

I think the writer of the article has been lurking around here the CBR Gambit thread. Too many similar ideas. But it was oddly positive for CBR written Gambit-piece. I kept waiting for "but... " part that often accompanies adulation of the character.

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'm still just surprised it isn't Brett White that wrote it.

I think I mentioned it before, but I've always thought Sinister would be a good addition to a Gambit solo film. IF executed well of course. :)

There are a lot of relationships with big name characters that Gambit has that could work well in the movies... and help add some recognizable faces/characters as well.

I think they have to be careful not to put in too many characters and relationships in one film. There is so much material to work with that it's hard to lose sight and make it a mess. I'd go for the Sinister story with flashbacks of his history with his family and the guilds. And that leading into a new story in a sequel, tying in with the X-Men.
