Gambit Shuffles the Deck with Fox
Winning this months 'No one really gives a damn' award is the news that Channing Tatum's long term fantasy project, Gambit, has confirmed a release date of 14th February 2019. This could be a subtle clue as to what story the movie will be telling, as the troubled relationship between Gambit and Rogue has always been a major theme running through his storylines.
While unusual and, being honest, unlikely a more romantic mutant movie could plausibly be on the cards. The heavily horror themed trailer for 'The New Mutants' shows Fox are startinng to consider different directions for their X-Verse. With 'Robocop' reboot scribe Josh Zetumer writing the script however, the chances of the movie being a love story and/or worth 90 minutes of your life are significantly reduced. Either way, the truth will out in 2019... if anyone can be bothered to go watch the thing.
