C’mon! As if 2015 wasn’t already promising enough with the next Avengers film and Ant-Man in store, with the promise of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange in the not too distant future… Marvel fans: I have yet another announcement for you! A Gambit solo film has just been announced by Fox for October 7, 2016.
The role, previously portrayed by actor Taylor Kitsch, looks to be potentially played now by People magazine’s 2012 “Sexiest Man Alive” – Channing Tatum (according to a little birdy who tweeted today “How do you say October 7, 2016 in Cajun?).
No news about a potential storyline yet. Will they be playing off anything set in X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Or will they ignore all previous references to Gambit and start fresh? Don’t get your Marvel underoos in a bunch – we’ll keep our ears to the ground!
