20th Century Fox if moving ahead with development of a stand alone GAMBIT movie following the character’s introduction in the upcoming X-MEN: APOCALYPSE film in 2016.
GAMBIT will star Channing Tatum with RoboCop’s Josh Zetumer writing the script based on a treatment by Gambit creator Chris Claremont.
The X – Men were created as a team, besides Wolverine, the Avengers and JL weren’t. Each member of the Avenger and JL can lead their own movie, while the X – Men were created specifically to be a team and work together. All Fox is trying to do is go the Marvel route. Personally I can actually see a Gambit solo film, but personally no other X – Men besides Wolverine and a Deadpool can hold their own movie.
