Channing Tatum's Gambit movie will reportedly start production in March

Gambit Doug Liman Channing Tatum Banner

Fox's GAMBIT, starring Channing Tatum as the titular Cajun mutant, was expected to head into production this past November with Rupert Wyatt behind the camera, but that all changed after the director left the comic book movie. EDGE OF TOMORROW's Doug Liman has been tapped to replace Wyatt, and it's being reported that filming is now scheduled to kick off this March in Louisiana.

You may have noticed that Tatum was sporting a, shall we say, rather interesting haircut at last night's Golden Globes, and some believe his hair-do (which you can check out below) is in preparation for the role. Will you be happy if this is how the actor will look in GAMBIT?

Although GAMBIT doesn't have a new release date yet, it will more than likely be in theaters sometime in 2017.

I just still don't get this.

I love Gambit. He's my favorite X-Man by far ever since the animated series I grew up watching. I was terribly disappointed that he never made an appearance in any of the X-Men movies but... I just don't think he deserves his own movie. Out of ALL the characters in the universe that deserve their own movies, I don't think Gambit should even be on the list. I imagine it's only being made because Channing Tatum wants to make it. Which is fine. He may do well but I certainly don't think he's right

Please don't let Fox do their thing and mess it up. I really feel like I'm rambling here. Kinda drunk.

Umm....Gambit was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Played by Taylor Kitsch. It sucked though.

How can a character be your "favorite" if you don't think they deserve their own movie?

Damn you, Mik! Obviously I finally, after all these years, put that atrocity out of my head and there you go reminding me of it again! Unfortunately, you're right.

And Jules, I know that might be confusing, but I stand by it. He's my favorite X-Man. He's my favorite part of the team. Meaning I think he should just be a part of that team. The Thing is my favorite member of the Fantastic 4, but I don't think he deserves his own movie. Because he's a member of the team. On top of that, I don't

On top of that, I don't think it's that illogical to have a favorite character and think they don't deserve their own movie. Moon Knight is my favorite Marvel character altogether and I don't think he deserves his own movie. And he's a headlining character whereas Gambit has mostly been more of a secondary character for sure. On top of ALL THAT, I think Wolverine is the only X-Men character that would ever deserve a solo movie.

There's only reason this film will work. Doug Liman. That guy is one hell of a director.

This really depends on the right script and director

As others have mentioned, Channing Tatum can be really good if the rest of the movie is in place. I'm staying cautiously optimistic for now ...

Gambit is one of my favorite comic book characters and I do think Tatum is a very solid actor in the right role. The fact that Liman signed on gives me confidence that this will be better than most people are expecting.
