Those who grew up absorbing X-Men material, especially during the 90s, were fond of the supercool Ragin’ Cajun known as Gambit, whose mutant superpower was charging up items with explosive energy and flinging them. Gambit’s weapon of choice was playing cards, which he’d charge and toss casually while uttering one-liners peppered with New Orleans French.
It was revealed yesterday that a Rogue & Gambit comic would be coming out. However, Marvel didn’t elaborate on this until today at New York Comic Con.
Between Marvel and DC Comics, the need to have superhero movies be distinct from one another is vital. For if they all start to blend, no one will want to watch them.
Despite being named to the role months ago, and him appearing at San Diego Comic-Con recently to show off his preparation for Gambit, there were a lot of rumors going around that Channing Tatum was going to be leaving the Gambit movie via a breakdown of negotiations. Well, you can breathe easy now, as Tatum has officially locked down his deal to be the card chucking, explosive, fan-favorite Cajun X-Man, per The Hollywood Reporter.
