In case you have forgotten, we are supposed to get a Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum. This film has been started and stopped for a while now. We even thought perhaps Tatum would have been replaced along the way, but according to an LRM with producer Simon Kinberg, Kinberg had this to say:
Yeah, it is going to happen, and it’s just a question… Channing is, in the best possible way, as committed and as rigorous about getting the character right as Ryan was with Deadpool and as Hugh was with Logan on this movie, and so it’s been about finding a filmmaker and someone who can capture that voice and hand it off to Channing. But he’s been a really critical part of the process, and we’re hoping that the movie, probably given his schedule, will be ready to go this year and probably shoot next year.
In the meantime, you can check out Movie Craft’s Gambit fan made trailer. Fan made trailers sometimes give us a glimpse to a better movie than we get and although X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a so-so movie, people really liked Taylor Kitch’s rendition. So, please enjoy the following fan-made trailer and let know what you think of it.
And just because I’m curious, if you could recast Gambit, who would you want to see play him?
