      ‘Gambit’ Solo Movie Will Attempt a ‘Different’ Origin Story




      Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum has been talking about his hopes of playing fan-favorite X-Men hero Gambit — perhaps in his own film — more than a year ago, though at the time it was more of a dream than a concrete plan. When producer Lauren Shuler Donner also expressed interest in Tatum for the role, it seemed there was fire to the smoke. Then, prior to the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the actor’s starring role in a solo Gambit film was confirmed.



      Since then Gambit has had its spotlight stolen by Fox’s other, recently-resurrected solo superhero film, Deadpool, arriving in early 2016 before X-Men: Apocalypse. But while doing the press rounds for his new film, The Book of Life, Tatum offered a brief update on the status of his solo X-Men movie.



      In an interview with MTV News, Tatum said he’s working with producers on the story for the Gambit film (still in its early stages) while they continue to look for a scriptwriter. He also mentioned that they want to do a “fresh” take on the character and origin story-style superhero film, but wouldn’t offer specifics.


      Read Tatum’s full quote:

      “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 want to introduce this character in a very different way. You know, when you try to do something different you never really know, right off the bat, what that is. We’re feeling our way, and really just kind of proving the concept of that person.”


      In terms of a fresh superhero origin story movie, Gambit will have its work cut out for itself. Many moviegoers — even those who wouldn’t consider themselves fans of superhero films — have seen several different iterations of an origin story by this point, perhaps even more than once for the same hero. That’s one reason why superhero films may need to turn to team-ups or event films in order to be fruitful for studios, not to mention entertain fans who may grow tired of seeing one first-act story after another.



      However, while The Avengers or the X-Men franchises may offer a hint at the direction in which the superhero genre is heading, there are still solo origin story movies slated to debut over the next few years: Deadpool, Ant-Man, and Doctor Strange, to name a few others from the Marvel canon (not to mention the half-dozen coming from DC).



      Though some fans may be sick of origin story films, these movies will, at worst, introduce new characters to their respective cinematic universes – and, at best, offer a refreshingly entertaining superhero movie experience. Where do you think Gambit will land? Is this the beginning of another solo franchise for Fox, or do you have your concerns?


      Stay tuned for more updates on Gambit as it becomes available.

      ‘Gambit’ Spinoff Gets ‘RoboCop’ Scribe; Based on Chris Claremont Treatment


      Up to now Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has been the sole X-Men to get a solo film to call his own – two, in fact, with a third one scheduled for 2017. That will change in 2016 when the long-await Deadpool finally arrives, and it looks as though the “Merc With A Mouth” will thereafter be followed by the “Ragin’ Cajun”, Gambit.


      Channing Tatum is lined up to play the latter character in a solo movie, which is now one step closer to becoming a reality. The project has reportedly gained a screenwriter in the shape of Joshua Zetumer, who finally put his name on the map this year by writing the RoboCop reboot after years of penning studio-commissioned scripts that went unused (and doing uncredited rewrites on such projects as Quantum of Solace).


      More intriguing, however, is the news that (according to Deadline‘s report on the matter) Zetumer will be drawing from a Gambit spinoff movie treatment as written by Chris Claremont. For those not aware, Claremont co-created the Gambit character – a mutant who can manipulate pure kinetic energy as he so chooses – with Jim Lee back in 1990; in addition, Claremont penned the comic source material that inspired such X-Men films as The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past.


      Claremont’s involvement is further proof that not only are the X-Men series producers serious about getting the Gambit film right, but that the spinoff may offer a more unique origin story than your average 20th Century Fox-backed comic book film would’ve back in the 2000s. The superhero movie game is continuously evolving (on a weekly basis very recently), so recruiting Claremont to help set Gambit sailing in the right direction reads as a smart strategy to help the project keep up.



      Tatum, who’s an Alabama native, has continuously voiced his enthusiasm about getting to bring Gambit and his accent to life on the big screen, as he takes over the role from Taylor Kitsch (who played the character first in X-Men Origins: Wolverine). Right now, Tatum is working on the anticipated sequel Magic Mike XXL for a Summer 2015 release date, and is earning lots of critical acclaim for his performance in the true-story drama Foxcatcher (due out next month).


      That is to say, Tatum’s career and credibility as an actor have never been better; he has his detractors, but many X-Men fans have already started to rally behind Tatum as Gambit, no less. Zetumer, for his part, wrote a RoboCop reboot that (despite its flaws) arguably offered a compelling sci-fi character story taken on its own merits; that bodes well for his involvement here, drawing from a Claremont-penned treatment. All in all, Gambit‘s starting to come together nicely.




      Next step will be to find a director for Gambit, to keep the project rolling along steadily; it’s not clear yet when Fox intends to release the film in theaters, though, which might impact the searcher for a helmsman. Director Bryan Singer has voiced an interest in having Gambit show up in 2016′s X-Men: Apocalypse, while Tatum has indicated that Gambit might pop in a solo movie before he teams up with other X-Men.



      Right now the trend seem to be shifting towards introducing comic book characters in a teamup and/or crossover movie first, then solo film second. DC is doing that with such characters as Wonder Woman and Cyborg, while Marvel Studios looks to start embracing that practice as it introduces such characters as Black Panther and the Inhumans to the big screen. We’ll have to see what happens with Gambit, though.
      We’ll bring you more information on Gambit when we have it.

      ‘Gambit’ Confirmed As Third ‘X-Men’ Movie of 2016


      All the talk from producers and potential actors about making more X-Men movies and spinoffs for fan-favorite characters isn’t just talk anymore. If Twentieth Century Fox didn’t get catch the attention of X-Men movie fans by announcing X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 even before X-Men: Days of Future Past hit theaters last summer, then they sure did with the surprise announcement a few short months ago that Deadpool would also come in 2016.


      Now they’re driving the point home by also confirming a Gambit spinoff for Channing Tatum. And the the best part is, Gambit is also coming in 2016. That’s right, we now have three X-Men movies coming in 2016. That’s more than Disney/Marvel Studios, more than Warner Bros./DC Entertainment and more than Sony for the year.


      The character of Gambit (real name: Remy LeBeau) was introduced in Fox’s first attempt at an X-Men solo character spinoff, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the creative team ignored some of the most iconic traits of the character – most notably, his unique Cajun accent. He was played by Taylor Kitsch but it’s clear that going forward, the studio is pretending that movie didn’t happen.


      Like the other X-Men character, Gambit is a mutant. He possesses the powers of controlling kinetic and potential energy through touch. He can ‘charge’ up objects and cause them explode, using a deck of playing cards and a staff as his signature weapons. Gambit’s also a formidable martial artist who also has the ability to charm people, hence his womanizing ways.


      The character quickly became a fan-fave in the early ’90s thanks to his key role in the animated X-Men cartoon on Fox which came quickly after his introduction in Marvel Comics in 1990.


      Rumors and reports that Channing Tatum would be playing Gambit for the X-Men franchise began a year ago after conversations between him and X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner began an endless cycle of questions on the topic in interviews with either ever since. We even spoke to Channing Tatum about the character’s accent and abilities while he was promoting 22 Jump Street. Now it’s finally happening and a script is already in the works by Joshua Zetumer (RoboCop) which is based off a treatment by Chris Claremont.



      • Deadpool - February 12, 2016
      • X-Men: Apocalypse - May 27, 2016
      • Gambit - October 7 2016
      • Wolverine 3 - March 3 2017
      • Untitled X-Men Movie - July 13 2018

      Inevitably sharing the same cinematic space will be the rebooted Fantastic Four series which begins this summer and had its sequel just move up alongside the announcement of Gambit.

      • The Fantastic Four - August 7 2015
      • Fantastic Four 2 - June 2, 2017

      Given the release date, it’s a safe bet both Ryan Reynolds and Channing Tatum will at least show up in X-Men: Apocalypse, if for nothing else than cross-promotion. After all, Apocalypse is being touted as the franchise’s biggest film ever and it’s too good of an opportunity not to include the characters worthy enough of a standalone films that same year.



      We can applaud Fox for quickly capitalizing on the superhero boom and making seemingly fan-driven projects a reality. Hopefully they can service Deadpool and Gambit in a way that honors the best and most important elements of the characters. Given what Reynolds and Tatum have said about Deadpool and Gambit, respectively, they’re hardcore fans of them and that’s something worth getting excited about.


      Don’t be surprised to see Fox add in even more X-Men projects in the following years if they’re ready to launch three Marvel-branded live-action features as soon as 2016. If you’re a Gambit fan, here are some recommendations from interviews with Channing Tatum:


      Fantastic Four opens August 7 2015, Deadpool on February 12, 2016, X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016, Gambit is coming Oct 7 2016, The Wolverine 3 (not the official title) on March 3 2017, Fantastic Four 2 on June 2, 2017, and some as-yet unspecified X-Men film on July 13 2018.

      Channing Tatum Talks ‘Gambit’ Script And Where It Fits In ‘X-Men’ Universe




      Twentieth Century Fox and producer Simon Kinberg may be focused on marketing this summer’s Fantastic Four reboot and simultaneously shooting X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool, while news of Wolverine 3 and New Mutants stealing our attention, fans can’t forget about the other X-Men spinoff debuting in between all of these.
      We’re referring to the Ragin’ Cajun known as Gambit, a character and project very personal to star Channing Tatum who – like Ryan Reynolds is for Deadpool – is spearheading the Gambit X-Men solo character movie/reboot with the backing of producer Lauren Shuler Donner.

      From The Web

      Much like Deadpool aims to replace bad memories of the charcters’ first onscreen debut in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, bringing the character to life with the proper costume, dialogue and tone of the comics, so to will Gambit do the same for Remy LeBeau who also had a problematic intro in the first Wolverine solo adventure where he was played by Taylor Kitsch. It wasn’t Kitsch’s fault, but the character he played simply wasn’t the fan-favorite card tossing, thick-accented womanizer from the comics.
      Gambit and Rogue

      That’s something Channing Tatum promises to deliver when he suits up as the mutant thief in October 2016 when Gambit opens in theaters in the same year as Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. In chatting with Empire Magazine (in the same issue where we saw the new X-Men: Apocalypse concept art), Tatum reiterated his connection to the character and why he’s appealing.
      “I love Gambit. I grew up in the South; my father’s from Loiuisiana. We’d go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that. And he always felt the most real of the X-Men to me. He’s kind of a tortured soul and he’s not a good guy. But he’s not a bad guy, either. He walks his own path. And of course he plays cards and drinks and is a martial-arts badass!”
      Fox brought in RoboCop screenwriter Josh Zetumer in October to pen the Gambit screenplay and he’s already complete one draft of the film.
      “Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it’s killer. None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the X-Men world. But we’re going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies. It’s always about saving the world (Laughs), but maybe we’re going to shift things a liittle but. There’s so many ways you can take [an origin story]. You could do it like Batman Begins, or a different take and go the Guardians of the Galaxy route. All I can say is, I’m super excited.”
      By “Guardians of the Galaxy route” we can only assume that the Magic Mike star is referring to the standalone nature and/or comedic tone of Marvel Studios’ space opera combined with an origin story that spans multiple time periods in the life of the character a la Batman Begins.
      More: Channing Tatum Aiming For ‘Gambit’ Solo Movie Before Joining X-Men

      How a Gambit solo film fits the X-Men movie universe is a bigger question now more than ever. Tatum got his wish of seeing Gambit’s origins in a solo story before he enlists in the X-Men although there are rumors he could cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse. That raises the question of when the film takes place in the already confusing continuity of the film series. The original Remy LeBeau (the Taylor Kitsch version) was introduced in the late ’80s or early ’90s depending on when X-Men: Wolverine took place so we’ll have to wait and see if Tatum’s Gambit is also set a little into the past or if it’s modern set like Deadpool is.

      That’s the tricky part of connecting all the films since X-Men: Apocalypse is set (primarily) in 1983. That leaves more than three decades between it and Deadpool and while we don’t yet know when New Mutants will take place in relation to these (assume the present), we made see the use of time-travel once again to alter timelines or bring characters together. After all, X-Men: Apocalypse will need to address the idea of world that fears mutants given the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past seeing Magneto drop a stadium around the White House. There’s no coming back from that, especially if a decade later Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) lays waste to the planet. Did we mention the Fantastic Four is also set in the present or near-future and introduces the concept of inter-dimensional travel?

      opens August 7th, 2015, Deadpool on February 12th, 2016, X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27th, 2016, Gambit on October 7th, 2016, Wolverine 3 (not the official title) on March 3rd, 2017, Fantastic Four 2 on June 9th, 2017, and some as-yet unspecified X-Men film on July 13th, 2018.

      Gambit: Channing Tatum’s Having Trouble Finding A Director For His ‘X-Men’ Spinoff



      No one is more excited about the potential of a Gambit-centered X-Men movie than Channing Tatum, the actor who’s not only set to headline the solo character spinoff, but is the driving force behind the project becoming a reality. It’s a situation similar to Ryan Reynolds patiently waiting years for the same studio, Twentieth Century Fox, to greenlight Deadpool – the other 2016 X-Men spinoff that he’s helping actually produce.
      Unfortunately for Mr. Tatum at the moment, he can’t seem to find a director who shares the same passion as him for the project. Where Reynolds has director Tim Miller, who’s been attached since the beginning for Deadpool, Channing Tatum reportedly has nothing but a series of “no thank you” responses from the directors he’s reached out to so far to helm Gambit.

      From The Web

      In April, Umberto Gonzalez reported that directors Bennett Miller (Moneyball, Foxcatcher) and Darren Aronofsky (Noah, The Wrestler) were both offered the directorial gig for Gambit, but each one ultimately passed. Miller of course, worked with Tatum on the Oscar contender Foxcatcher and Aronofsky is no stranger to the X-Men franchise – having been attached originally to help The Wolverine, where he would have re-teamed with Hugh Jackman.
      We’re currently at a point of time where Gambit needs to begin shooting this fall to meet its October 2016 release date. The first draft of its script by screenwriter Josh Zetumer (RoboCop) has already been turned in. Tatum, producers Lauren Shuler Donner (longtime X-Men franchise producer) and Simon Kinberg (current overseer of Fox’s Marvel universe), and the studio already know how and where Gambit fits into the larger X-Men cinematic universe – and now, they have to find someone who will play by their rules. And historically, that’s been tricky.
      Cover For Gambit #6 (2005)

      Gavin Hood infamously had a troubled time with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Matthew Vaughn was rushed with X-Men: First Class and their are reports of all sorts of behind-the-scenes problems for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four (but there’s no telling how much of that is true). Still, Fox seems to be turning over a new leaf in terms of taking their Marvel licenses seriously. That’s why Gambit and Deadpool are happening as passion-fueled projects and why the studio is putting resources behind both launching in the same year as their biggest superhero movie to date in X-Men: Apocalypse).
      According to Meet the Movie Press (via ScreenCrush), both Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption, The Raid 2) and J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, All Is Lost) were approached about directing Gambit as well; and like the aforementioned pair, they also reportedly turned down the job. We can’t verify if any of these talks actually turned into full-fledged offers, but the four names that we know about so far emphasize that Tatum and the studio are interested in making Gambit something unique and different (like has been promised), again raising comparisons to Deadpool. This is needed given the current climate of superhero movies coming out every month or two beginning in the next two years.

      ‘Gambit’ Lands ‘Planet of the Apes’ Director Rupert Wyatt




      X-Men: Days of Future Past marked the beginning of a brave new world for Fox’s mutant franchise. More than just a new timeline, that film is being used to springboard into the massive scope of X-Men: Apocalypse as well as upcoming solo movies for characters who aren’t Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, in the forms of Deadpool and Gambit.
      That latter spinoff – which will star Channing Tatum in the title role – has reportedly been facing trouble nailing down a filmmaker to take the director’s chair. A number of high-profile directors, including Darren Aronofsky (Noah) and Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher), have turned down the project, and the studio will likely need to move fast to complete the film in time for its fall 2016 release date. Thankfully for fans, it looks like that issue has now been resolved.

      From The Web

      EW is reporting that Rupert Wyatt will be directing the Gambit film for Fox. Wyatt most recently helmed the Mark Wahlberg crime drama The Gambler last year but is perhaps best known for breathing new life into an aging franchise with the 2011 prequel/reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes. There’s no word yet on what exactly the story is for the Gambit screenplay penned by Josh Zetumer (RoboCop (2014)), nor how the movie will connect with other X-Men films.
      Wyatt is a filmmaker who reads as being a smart choice to handle a relative standalone story for the Cajun Marvel character. After all, Wyatt does have experience working on effects-heavy blockbuster genre fare, and his ability to reintroduce audiences to a familiar character/concept (which is what happened with Apes) could prove to be essential here.
      Cover For Gambit #6 (2005)

      The character of Gambit was largely given a disservice with his brief inclusion in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the 2009 film viewed by many as one of (if not, the) worst film in the X-Men series to date. Taylor Kitsch played the role in that movie and went on to headline the infamous flop that was John Carter. Tatum, as it were, is reeling from similar disappointment with Jupiter Ascending, so a rebound with Gambit would be welcome news for the actor (as his first starring role since that Wachowski space adventure). Having a solid director like Wyatt onboard should only improve the Tatum-headlined X-Men adventure’s chances of success.
      Fantastic Four opens on August 7, 2015; Deadpool on February 12, 2016; X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016; Gambit on October 7, 2016; Wolverine 3 (not the official title) on March 3, 2017; Fantastic Four 2 on June 9, 2017; and some as-yet unspecified X-Men film on July 13, 2018.

      Channing Tatum Still Finding the Right ‘Gambit’ Accent


      2016 is going to be a very big year for comic book movies. As Marvel Studios unleashes two films – Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange – and Warner Bros. expands the DC Cinematic Universe with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, 20th Century Fox will be releasing three new movies: X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, and Gambit.
      Seeing as X-Men: Apocalypse is currently in production and Deadpool recently wrapped filming, a ton of new information has been released about both movies, both officially and unofficially. However, Channing Tatum’s Gambit spinoff is still in its early stages, only recently landing Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as the director. The movie has a long way to go, but for many fans, one big question remains: What will Tatum’s Cajun accent sound like? According to the actor, not even he’s sure what it’ll sound like just yet.



      Even though Gambit has incredible agility and his mutant power allows him to turn objects into explosives, his strong Cajun accent is one of his most memorable qualities. While speaking with DigitalSpy, Channing Tatum said he’s yet to lock down a specific voice for Gambit:
      It’s all being worked on at the moment. I’m from the south, so I know who to go to to find the accent. I haven’t found ‘the guy’ yet, because generally that’s how I do accents. I’ll find the person that I want to sound like and not just do a generic Cajun accent. So I haven’t found the guy yet.”

      Obviously, the accent has the ability to make or break Channing Tatum’s performance as Gambit. Even if the actor’s use of emotion is excellent, it’ll be difficult to let Gambit’s story really connect if the voice sounds off or too over-the-top. Considering he’s yet to decide on the voice, it’s safe to assume he and the other people behind this movie recognize just how important this element is.
      DigitalSpy also interviewed producer Reid Carolin and asked him just how connected Gambit will be to the rest of the X-Men Cinematic Universe. According to Carolin, they’re still working that out, but they would like to have Gambit eventually interacting with the other X-Men characters:
      You know, I think that’s sort of an evolving conversation – we’re kind of figuring that out as we go. But this is a standalone movie and it’s the story of Gambit and we’ll probably gradually integrate that character into the X-Men universe as we go. And as far as what characters from the X-Men universe make it into the movie — we’re not exactly sure yet, so we’re figuring it out. It’s still at the script stage.
      It’s safe to assume Gambit’s future – as well as Deadpool’s – will depend heavily on just how much the movie earns at the box office. Even though X-Men: Apocalypse marks the end of the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class and Hugh Jackman claims he’s done with Wolverine after Wolverine 3, Deadpool and Gambit absolutely have the potential to generate sequels and have several characters crossover. Both characters have a whole lot of history and their stories have often included several heroes and villains that Fox would be able to use.

      As for Gambit’s upcoming origin story in New Orleans, Carolin said he believes Gambit fans will be happy with the creative choices that were taken by writer Joshua Zetumer. Changes from the source material are common – movies have a limited amount of time to tell a story, but comics can take place over several months and connect to other titles and an incredibly rich history – but only time will tell as to whether or not Zetumer’s changes feel natural. 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine left many fans feeling skeptical about Fox’s handling of the X-Men properties, but X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine, and especially X-Men: Days of Future Past have restored confidence for many in Fox.
      When asked about Gambit’s classic, pink costume, Tatum seemed to imply Gambit’s movie costume won’t be as colorful as the one often seen in comics and TV shows:
      You can’t just do it how people think – you want to give it some base in reality. If you do do it, you got to make it sort of relative to reality.”
      While Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool costume is fully embracing the look from the comics – the only noticeable change being the color of the gloves – it sounds like Gambit’s movie costume will be a new look that draws some inspiration from the comics. That said, Gambit is still in the very early stages, so there’s plenty of changes that could be made before we see any images of Tatum in costume. As of right now, it’s unclear just how much Gambit’s movie attire will take from the bright look in the comics.
      Fantastic Four opens on August 7, 2015; Deadpool on February 12, 2016; X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016; Gambit on October 7, 2016; Wolverine 3 (not the official title) on March 3, 2017;Fantastic Four 2 on June 9, 2017; and some as-yet unspecified X-Men film on July 13, 2018.

      ‘Gambit': Casting Details & Production Start Date?



      Like Deadpool, Remy LeBeau a.k.a. Gambit first appeared on screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, then played by Taylor Kitsch (True Detective). Now that 20th Century Fox’s evolving X-Men universe has been (sort of) rebooted by Days of Future Past, the Ragin’ Cajun will receive his own standalone film. However, unlike Ryan Reynolds returning to the role of Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, Gambit will be played by Channing Tatum (Magic Mike XXL) and receive a “different” introduction to the franchise.
      Late last year Fox brought on Joshua Zetumer (RoboCop) to craft a script from a Gambit spinoff treatment written by the character’s original co-creator Chris Claremont. More recently, director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) joined the project, which will seemingly start production later this year for its 2016 release date.


      Showbiz 411 is reporting that Gambit will begin shooting in New Orleans this October, under the title “Chess,” and received a list of character descriptions in the film’s casting call. Reportedly, each role includes a deal for sequels, and some call for French-speaking actors:
      Louis– Male, any ethnicity, 40s-50s. Elegant and intelligent. An appealing entrepreneur with an unexpected dark side.
      Vera– Female, any ethnicity, mid 20s – early 30s. Beautiful, smart, tough, fiery and unpredictable.
      Wes– Male, any ethnicity, mid 20s – mid 30s. Aspirational but weak minded. Soulful and sensitive.
      Fritz– Male, any ethnicity, 40s – 50s. A professional thief. Charismatic con-artist. Warm hearted but untrustworthy.
      Nash– Male, any ethnicity, mid 20s – early 30s. A potent threat. Heir to his mother’s business. Malevolent.
      Willhelm– Male, any ethnicity, 30s. Dangerous street criminal. Protective and loyal to his family. Intensely loyal and violent.
      Gary– Male, any ethnicity, mid 20s – early 30s. A little simple; dim-witted and passive.
      Nonna– Female, any ethnicity, mid 20s – 30 years old.
      Uptight, corporate, vicious, sexual.
      Joe– Male, any ethnicity, 30s. He’s a gun for hire. He is the black sheep of his family. Not from good breeding but from a working class family.
      Ben– Male, any ethnicity, 20s. Just reaching adulthood. A street kid, a disaffected outsider, an orphan.
      Boris- Male, Hispanic, 20s. Charming, handsome, and dangerous.
      Clarissa– Female, mixed race, 10 – 12 years old. Ethereal and other worldly. Very expressive.
      Wolfgang– Male, authentic French, 40s. A French criminal. Must speak fluent French.
      Howard– Male, Caucasian. 50s. A refined European mobster who speaks fluent French.
      Like the production itself, many of these character names will change before the final film is released, likely to hide their connections to comic book characters. Certain descriptions on this list are too vague to guess at whether they’re based on characters from the comics – and, likely, some may not have any tie to Gambit’s comic book associates.
      The Mutant Candra

      However, if Gambit will, like Deadpool, include a handful of X-Men characters who are associated with the titular hero, then some of these descriptions are likely alluding to Marvel-based roles. For instance, Fritz could potentially be Jean-Luc LeBeau, the leader of the Thieves Guild who takes a young Remy under his wing. Additionally, Vera could be Gambit’s childhood love interest from the comics, Bella Donna Boudreaux, while Willhelm might be her brother Julien. As for Nonna, she could be the immortal mutant supervillain Candra.
      Of course, these descriptions don’t offer too much to go on, but if Gambit does start filming in October, which seems likely given the film’s October 2016 release date, then more casting information will be headed our way soon. When the cast of the film is confirmed, we’ll be able to glean more about what characters – both new and adapted from the comics – fans should expect in Gambit.


      Fantastic Four
      opens August 7th, 2015, Deadpool on February 12th, 2016, X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27th, 2016, Gambit on October 7th, 2016, Wolverine 3 (not the official title) on March 3rd, 2017, Fantastic Four 2 on June 9th, 2017, and some as-yet unspecified X-Men film on July 13th, 2018. New Mutants is also in the work without a release date.
