Charming Potato Is Lobbying For a Solo Gambit Movie. No Human On the Planet Is Complaining
Even though Channing Tatum’s turn as Gambit in the next X-Men movie hasn’t been officially officially confirmed, it’s happening. Tates told MTV,
Creatively, we’re starting to chug forward. Obviously there’s nothing [official]. There are only conversations and dreams right now, really… The machine of the Marvel world is so ginormous that it’s literally like climbing a mountain, getting one of these movies made, and all of the pieces that go along with it
*shudder* Literally, you guys. LITERALLY climbing a mountain.
Okay, ignoring that. Focusing on this nugget instead:
We’ve talked about it being a standalone, first, and actually trying to change the ‘hero, superhero movie.’ Because Gambit is not your typical hero. He’s a thief. He walks on the gray. I’m hoping we can change it a little bit, and then ultimately feather into the other ones.
I don’t know who “we” is. I wouldn’t be surprised if “we” is Tatum and his mirror, but he’s gonna spread that rumor till it sticks. I’d like to go on record saying I am absolutely 100% okay with this.
