Channing Tatum took to Facebook and Twitter to announce the release date for ‘Gambit.’ Will we see as Gambit in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ in May 2016? Who knows. Hopefully we will find out soon. So, get out your calendars and circle October 7th, 2016.
Tatum told MTV in an interview back in October:
“We’re finding a writer and sort of beating it out. I don’t want to give too much away because we don’t know that much right now other than we obviously know who Gambit is. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. We’re obviously going to go to the saving the world superhero movies eventually, but maybe not for the first one.
We kind of want to introduce this character in a very different way. When you try to do something different, you never really know right off the bat what that is. We’re feeling our way into it. And really just have got to prove that concept of that person.”
‘Gambit’ will be written by ‘RoboCop’ reboot scribe Josh Zetumer. No director has been attached to the movie.
Are you guys excited for ‘Gambit’? I know CC is not thrilled about Channing Tatum playing Gambit, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt for now. Check out the fan art below by Metalblackfae.
