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?

Ever since Jon Bernthal premiered as anti-hero Frank Castle in the second season of Daredevil, I’ve been a fan. When I heard there was going to be a series on Netflix for The Punisher, I was even more pumped. Jon Bernthal, Deborah Ann Woll, and others have been spotted in New York City filming for the new show the past few months. Though there is no specific release date, people surmise it will be sometime in the fall of 2017.
Unfortunately, the new pictures are from Getty and due to legality issues, I cannot post them directly to this page. But, please go take a look here for some Frank Castle goodness. If you do click this link, you can see a familiar Frank; that is a beat up Frank. In Daredevil Season 2, the Punisher sported gnarly looking bruises most of the time we saw him. I was getting worried with all previous The Punisher set photos when he wasn’t scuffed up.
Hopefully, we’ll get a release date soon. Since they are still filming, a relate date may not be announced for some time now. Either way, it is definitely my most anticipated Netflix Marvel show. Of course, we have The Defenders coming out this summer and keep your fingers crossed that we get a Frank Castle cameo.
The Punisher series will star Jon Bernthal, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and many more!
It’s been a couple of weeks since Kong: Skull Island premiered. Almost everyone knows the story of King Kong – it’s about as well known as Godzilla. And after the 2005 remake (featuring Adrian Brody and Jack Black), I wondered if we really needed another redo.
Kong: Skull Island had a great cast. It was a small Marvel Cinematic Universe reunion with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Brie Larson (Captain Marvel). On top of that, the film featured a diverse cast that all showcased their own stories and importance in the film.
Taking place in the 1970s rather than the 1930s, Skull Island showcases a world still fresh after the Vietnam War. We see how each character feels about the conflict and how that affects them in their journey to the dangerous island.
What was refreshing about Kong: Skull Island, was that unlike the past films, the cast never left the island. Rather than taking Kong back to the States to exploit him, the characters stayed on his turf and in many ways, became reliant on him. I don’t want to spoil too much, in case there are those who have not seen it yet. I would give it four out of five stars, just for being a fun experience at the movies. And that ending will make you happy cry.
According to Box Office Mojo, Kong: Skull Island has grossed over $139 million domestically.
A summary of TC Stark’s Reviews
You may be asking yourself, who is TC Stark? She’s me!
As a passionate lover of movies and TV shows, I decided to start this site to share my thoughts and reviews. Here, I hope to give readers honesty and professionalism with each article. I’ll also be keeping up with the latest news stories. Most of what I write will be Marvel or DC related, but I don’t like to limit myself. Since Netflix is my best friend, I find myself watching shows or films that are a few years old and I’ll want to talk about them. So, expect that kind of riveting journalism!
In all seriousness, I have been writing for fourteen years now. I have published several books on Kindle and contributed to several sites such as MCUExchange, The Source by SuperheroStuff, and iZombie Support Group. Click on the links to check out my published pieces!
The good thing is we have a lot of great stuff coming up. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Defenders, Baby Driver, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and so much more coming out in 2017. iZombie season 3 premieres on the CW at 9 pm on April 4th, so I surmise that will be my first review. If you’re a fan (which you should be), check it out with me!
Thanks for sticking with me for my first post and I’ll see you at the next review!
