Here's What the Gambit Movie Could Look Like
Gambit is one of those troubled superhero movies that seems like it's going to be cursed. The movie lost its director Rupert Wyatt and then almost lost its star Channing Tatum. But after months of bad news for the Cajun X-Man, Gambit's fortunes may finally be turning around. First came the news that Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman is close to signing on to helm the film, something that should excite fans of slick, exciting sci-fi films (i.e. all of us), and now producer Simon Kinsberg is revealing what the movie will look like. Spoiler alert, it sounds pretty awesome.

While speaking to Collider about the next X-Men related movie to hit theaters, Deadpool, Kinsberg pivoted briefly to Gambit:

Opening quote
"I mean Deadpool obviously has a very different, almost antithetical tone to the mainline X-Men movies. The X-Men movies are dramatic and almost operatic, whereas Deadpool is irreverent and hysterical and sort of a dirty R-rated comedy in many ways. And Gambit will have its own different flavor and tone to it, will be more of like a heist movie and a sexy thriller in a way."
Closing quote


We're all for superhero movies exploring other genres, something the Marvel Cinematic Universe has excelled at. And though we've just seen a superhero heist movie in Ant-Man, we definitely have not yet seen a sexy thriller superhero movie. We say bring it on, chéri!
