I think we all know how I feel about this.

#5 Posted by Pania (1759 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, I saw that when I checked around. (Liev Schrieber as Sabertooth?)

Comicbookmovie.com confirms the TV guide article.

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/news/articles/4286.asp

The IESB has been able to confirm with studio sources that Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch will be playing Remy LeBeau.

But these just went up today, so it maybe that IMDB hasn't updated yet.

Hell no. I don't care that Gambit isn't apart of Wolverine's Origin (in the Marvel U) I waited through 3 X-Films to see Gambit and now it looks like its gonna happen. The movies aren't cannon anyway and usually take alot of liberties. Nope I'm glad Gambit's finally making his big screen debut.

I hope movies don't become cannon. With more and more writers whining about continuity and taking cues from other media sources (X-23 which came from X-Men Evolution, Morrison writing Magneto as a protest against Ian McKellen's protrayal), things could get very confused.

I agree. Like in Messiah Complex when Xavier is fixing Cable, they drew him to look like the movie version (Patrick Stewart) I didn't care for that.

Yeah, the lines are starting to blur and that bugs the heck out of me because a bunch of studio people who know next to nothing about these characters or their history when they make the films are starting to influence how they are portrayed on panel. It should work the other way round.

It really, really scares me in the case of the Magneto film, since Goyer seems to think he is directing Hannibal Rising.

Nice. I've never seen Friday Night Lights, but I have to admit I'm hyped about this. I also like Ryan Reynolds as a possible Deadpool candidate. But I'm also lost as to how Gambit fits into Wolverine's past. I can see them making the jump with Deadpool, seeing as how he's a fellow Weapon X'r, but Gambit?

"I'm thinking they went with a younger actor to show a younger Gambit. I doubt he'll have a huge role. But they've been wanting to get him in for a while now. Maybe this is as close as they can get to getting him on film. I'll wait to pass judgement until I hear more about the story."

The guy who will play him, his name is Bailey Chase, and he's like 34, so I think he'll have like a pretty large role

That's just a rumor that's been floating around for a while. IMDB hasn't updated it's page yet.

I would pay 10$ to see that.

(But then I would pay 10$ to see Deadpool fight anyone.)

I'm really hoping they pull of Gambit well, man.

I've read that Ryan Reynolds has joined the cast of the Wolverine movie. Would he be the one playing Deadpool? I could also see him as Gambit... I think he even speaks French.

#44 Posted by Midnight Shadow (13 posts) - - Show Bio

Will someone please just explain to me how in the world Gambit fits in to Wolverine's Origins!? If they try to throw him in just to have him, it's going to totally screw up anything they try to pull with Rogue and Gambit in X4 if they do one. Actually, it'll probably just screw up Gambit. If he doesn't have the Cajun drawl, I'm one Southern girl who will be very upset. Death to the writer and actor who do not give Gambit a Cajun drawl.

Rogue and Gambit must be together. They're just perfect. Throwing Gambit in with Wolverine and Deadpool during WeaponX time frame makes him too old for her. It's just wrong!

Wolverine doesn't need any help looking good. Especially if he is being played by Hugh Jackman.

As Dr. Cox from scrubs would say. "Women don't get, we're just not that into Hugh Jackman." Anywho, it wouldn't suprise me if they didn't give him his Cajun Drawl, I mean Colossus was just some dude from the mid-west instead of the awesome dude from Russia!
