IF a Gambit Solo Film came out.....

#1 Posted by Sheep-Kill (617 posts) - - Show Bio

So we all finally saw Gambit on the big screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.   Some may have not been pleased with the character and some were.  I could understand that threw all the views of all the Gambit fans.  For me as a fan of the character, it was good just to finally see him on the screen after the last 3 X-Men films in which he was never shown, only mentioned by name, and numerous times he was given a scene in one of the three films but later written out in the final script.


Since the X-Men Origins: Wolverine came out, talks have been going on about solo films with Gambit and one with Deadpool.  I say why the hell not. Both Gambit and Deadpool are some of the greatest characters in the X-Men universe and they should have there stories told in depth with action as well a emotion with a kickass script not like the scripts that have been thrown into most Marvel films which I will not name (cough cough! Spider-Man 3! Cough!X-Men: Last Stand, Cough! GHost Rider! COUGH!!)

As a fan, I am so up for a Gambit film.  If they were to start in production of a Gambit film,  I would like a story that they would go further into his past but not in like a cheesey flash back sort of way.  It should be set in that one time.  I would like to see where it takes place right after the Wolverine film and where he bumps into Mr. Sinister and gets involved in the Mutant Massacre.  Give it a real gothic and morbid tone.  With great action of course.  

What do you the fans think would make a great solo film for everyone's favorite Cajun Thief?

This would be badass if it actually happens. Theres alot of Gambit's history that would serve as great plots for a solo flick.

Having Sinister an the Massacre in a movie would be freaking awesome

Gambit to me was awesome. He really reminded me of Doc Holiday from Tombstone. I thought he was great and if he had his own movie using the same characterization that they used in Origins, I would be extremely pleased.

I think Gambit would make a great subject for a full length movie. He's got a great history full of interesting stories.

Only of Taylor doesn't play him; that kid made the bloody Cajun look like a girl throughout all his screentime, and the accent was borderline trash. If they drop him fro someone who can actually protray the character correctly, then I'm good to go.

Someone has some rage. He did not look at all like a woman. The accent was not trash, it was southern. That was the only problem and it doesn't even matter.

This would be a waste of a film budget. I'd rather they make a movie that will actually be successful.

I don't think he's quite popular enough to get his own movie.


I mean, Deadpool is in pretty much everything nowadays, and Wolverine is literally in everything, but Gambit? Outside of the X-Men he hasn't had many appearances...

I'd much rather see an older Remy alongside the X-Men if they make another film.

If Gambit had a solo film, I probably wouldn't see it. I like Gambit, but I could care less to see him on the big screen. The movie would fail, just like every solo series he's ever had

emphasizes the part he likes

as for a Gambit movie, I'd love to go see it...but only because it has Gambit...after all would be said and done I'm sure I'd be more disappointed with it than I was with that Wolverine: Origins movie, and that's saying something...they wouldn't give Gambit a quality movie because he's not popular enough

I don't even think that a Gambit film will be made because few people know of him. More people know of Logan.  I actually don't think that there is much of a future for live action X-Men films.
 
LOL.

Mr. Sinister and the Marauders should appear. That would be quite interesting.

Agreed.....Sinister would be awesome on screen...and Remy too! What more can a girl ask for :)

Id enjoy this, though I don't trust them to even come close to doing it right.
