In the aftermath of X-Men: Days of Future Past, a whole bunch of spin-off films were on the horizon for the X-Men universe. Such films included Deadpool, Logan, New Mutants, X-Force, and other “First Class” sequels. One film that was planned was a solo film featuring everyone’s favorite card-throwing Cajun, Gambit. The planned spin-off would feature Channing Tatum as the title character. The film was planned for a Spring 2017 release. However, out of nowhere, the project’s start date was pushed back and then later taken off the proposed schedule. After that, the film’s director Doug Liman left the project as well. Many started to lose faith that the film would ever get made as it’s still in “Development Hell” territory. Many feared that the film will never get made and probably be shelved.

Today, we got our first official image from the production team, along with a whole slew of new rumours, hints and tantalising factoids. Let’s dive in. (more…)
