It feels like we have been talking about this ‘Gambit‘ film for years. It’s been in development for a long time, but it’s finally getting made, and we now have an official release date from 20th Century Fox.
The X-Men movie starring Channing Tatum will hit theaters February 14, 2019. There are two other movies scheduled to be released on that same date, including Warner Bros’ comedy Isn’t It Romantic starring Liam Hemsworth and Rebel Wilson.
To learn a little more about this Gambit project, we’ll hit you with this excerpt from Deadline:
“Chris Claremont and Jim Lee created Gambit for Marvel in 1990. Otherwise known as Remy LeBeau, Gambit has the ability to charge matter with volatile kinetic energy, causing the object in question to explosively release its charge on impact. The character materialized in a short burst in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine at the time portrayed by Taylor Kitsch.”
Another day, another comic book movie. I have to imagine by 2020, the general movie audience will grow tired of these films. This is what Hollywood does. It notices that something is working, and then beats the sh*t out of it until no one appreciates it anymore.
And then in like 20 years, it will make a comeback.
