Frankly it reeks of "let's smash random popular person into this role whether they fit the established character or not and pray it sticks when we throw it against the wall".

Roll your eyes all you like. If differing opinions bother you so much then maybe message boards aren't the proper medium for you.

You're entitled to your opinion. I just feel that this is going to be a Heath Ledger Joker / DOFP Quicksilver situation all over again. Tatum is a big fan of the character, and his primary character type is the charming, laid back playboy (i.e. Gambit). I think he's going to prove a lot of people wrong

Imo this is about as far from Ledger as one can possibly get, but time will tell.

Really, why? A guy who a lot of people are pre-judging and screaming is "not right for the role" and who may very well prove all of the naysayers wrong. Sorry, not seeing a whole lot of difference between this and the Ledger situation, or the Jackman situation, or the Hathaway situation, or the Evans situation, etc.

To be fair I don't like Channing in any role.

Channing's in the new Tarantino film, he's hot property at the moment.

I wonder if Wolverine will make a cameo in this...

He's also in the new Coen Brothers movie.

And I wouldn't be surprised if Logan pops up in the movie at some point.

Personally, I wouldn't mind the spin-offs & solos.

I watched X2 again and couldn't help thinking, "darn, I wish these characters (Jean Grey, Rogue, Cyke, Storm, Magneto, Prof X) each had more screen time". They are all great characters that already have great stories & depth in comics, so, imo, the more films or shows support the main story line, the better.

Channing's gonna kill it as Remy. And finally Gambit will be where he belongs as prominent member of the X-Men. Hated that Singer didn't introduce him and cut down Cyclops just to make Wolverine more important. X-Men are great because all the mutants bring something to the table. A proper X-Men lineup > Any Avenger you wanna throw out there. X-Men was always the coolest.

So Deadpool, X-Men Apocalypse and Gambit for Fox that year? Nice.

2016 just keeps getting crazier.

I'm thinking there might be a few more X flicks showing up in 2017 and 2018 now.

They get X-Force going and the X-Men will be in a strong position franchise wise.

Wow we know the mystery 2018 film Isn't Gambit.

Gambit In 2016 leads me to believe the mystery 2018 film could be a major x event film.

Deadpool,Apocalypse,and Gambit in same year and untitled wolverine film shortly after it in early 2017.

naysayers don't want to hear it but fox moving up the planned release date of FF2 says to me they are confident on it and when they release trailer for FF it may prove it.
Fox isn't a studio that announces release dates for sequels to films that haven't opened yet lightly.

The 2018 film could be X-Men/FF but then again it could be something else.

I will be surprised now if Gambit Isn't In Apocalypse.

Remember Bryan Singer in december 2013 chat mentioned both Deadpool and Gambit as characters he would like to use in future X-Men films and solo films for both happen to come out in same year in solo films.Yeah I know it's unlikely to be big roles In apocalypse for them but i think they both may show up In Apocalypse If nothing else in cameos.

Fox and WB have set themselves up greatly for potential success. Now if only Sony can get their house in order.

I'm a bit puzzled Fox is aiming for October 2016 for Gambit, but if Gravity can make $700M worldwide in that month, who's to say a Tatum-starring X-Men spinoff can't?

Dates are all over the place now. Deadpool is in February, Bats vs Superman in March, Suicide Squad in August, Doc Strange in November etc

These franchises need their space. Not much competition in October.

Yeah. People will see them regardless. With Fox's two solo films I imagine they will be somewhere inbetween 60-100m budget wise. Good films for them to try other options with the world of superheros getting so crowded.
