This has been a big couple of weeks for superhero movies, what with DC and Marvel essentially unloading their entire clips at once, announcing a ton of comic book-focuse fare for the next five years. Fox apparently doesn’t want to be left out, not with the X-Men franchise ripe for spinoff possibilities for solo films.
Deadline reported today that one of those is a go. Specifically, a Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum and written by Josh Zetumer is in the works, based on a treatment by noted X-scribe Chris Claremont. That means it’ll be high on authenticity but also possibly full of exposition.
