Channing Tatum Reveals More Info on Gambit and Says He Won’t Appear in X-Men: Apocalypse. We have known for a while that Gambit will make his solo debut on screen. However, we won’t be seeing him in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse according to Channing Tatum.
While doing an Ama at Reddit to promote his new film Magic Mike Xxl, a fan asked if Tatum’s Gambit would be appearing in upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. “No ma’am, or sir. I definitely will not,” the actor replied when asked about his character possibly appearing in Bryan Singer’s film.
It will be the second standalone character. And I just really think because Gambit is »

Back when word first reached us that Fox was interested in getting Channing Tatum on board as Gambit, producer Lauren Shuler Donner suggested that X-Men: Apocalypse would be the perfect place to introduce him. Once Tatum was officially on board, that still seemed to be the plan of action - but recently the actor stated that a solo outing might be a better option than having the Cajun card-shark debut with the other mutants in a team-based movie. Now, during his Reddit Ama, he finally confirmed that we definitely won't be seeing a Gambit cameo in Apocalypse. The other day we found out that Rise of The Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt would be helming the Gambit movie, and Tatum also comments on that, before once again expressing their intent to do something different with this character. Are you glad we won't be seeing Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse »

He.s ready to star as the Cajun mutant who is arguably the most popular of the X-Men among fans (second to Wolverine, of course).

He has producers in Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg, who are both experienced in working with 20th Century Fox.s Marvel properties. Now, if only he could find a director. It.s not for lack of trying. According to multiple sources a slew of big names have been offered the director.s chair but they keep turning it down. According to Umberto Gonzales both Bennett Miller, who directed Tatum in Foxcatcher and Darren Aronofsky, who was once tapped to direct The Wolverine, have both passed on the job.

It cannot be denied that cinema is currently awash with superheroes, and is certain to stay that way for many years to come, if studio release slate announcements are anything to go by. While the partnerships between Warner Bros and DC, and Disney and Marvel respectively are uppermost in the minds of most fans, the reality of comic book film adaptations is less straight-forward, with different characters belonging to different studios. For example, while the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be considered to have begun with Iron Man back in 2008, 20th Century Fox was way ahead of the game, enjoying success with an X-Men franchise – beginning in 2000. That franchise has so far generated seven movies, with a further six planned. Those upcoming films include spin-off titles for Deadpool and Gambit.
The character of Gambit is a mutant with a heavy Cajun accent and a shadowy personal life. He first appeared in »

Josh Boone, director of The Fault In Our Stars, is set to write and direct The New Mutants for Fox as an expansion of the X-Men franchise. Boone will co-write the adaptation of Marvel’s The New Mutants comic-book series, released in the 1980s, with Knate Gwaltney, and Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner have signed […]

According to reports, director Josh Boone ("The Fault In Our Stars") will co-write a screenplay and direct Fox' next "X-Men" movie spinoff "The New Mutants", for producers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner, based on the Marvel Comics' 1982 teenage superhero team , created by writer Chris Claremont and illustrator Bob McLeod:
"The New Mutants" were teenaged students of 'Professor Charles Xavier' and his 'School for Gifted Youngsters', much like the original 'X-Men', who had since grown into adulthood.
Original members included 'Samuel Guthrie' aka 'Cannonball', a mild-mannered Kentuckian and eventual co-leader, who became invulnerable when rocketing through the air;
'Xi'an Coy Manh' aka 'Karma', a 19-year-old Vietnamese girl and the team's original leader, who can mentally possess other people's bodies;
'Danielle Moonstar' aka 'Mirage'/'Psyche', a Cheyenne who can create visual empathic three-dimensional illusions;
'Roberto da Costa' aka 'Sunspot', a Brazilian who gained superhuman strength fueled by sunlight, »

20th Century Fox has closed a deal with filmmaker Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) to co-write and direct a new stand alone X-Men spinoff entitled The New Mutants. The filmmaker will co-write the screenplay with Knate Gwaltney (Kidnap), with Simon Kinberg set to producing alongside Lauren Shuler Donner. Here's what Simon Kinberg had to say about Josh Boone coming on board in a statement.
"We're so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe, and so excited to do it with Josh, who is uniquely suited to tell this story about young characters."
This adventure will introduce a new crop of mutants, although it isn't exactly clear which ones will be used in this adaptation. First introduced in a 1982 Marvel graphic novel, The New Mutants received their own monthly comic book in 1983, with the team comprised of much younger mutants who all attended Professor Xavier's school. »
So confession time: of all of the books Marvel has ever published about any of the characters in the X-Men universe, "The New Mutants" remains my very favorite. Part of that was timing. I was 13 when the series began publication, and I was already a fan of the X-Men. My best friend at the time was a comic nerd the way I was a movie nerd, and he knew my tastes well enough that when the book was about to launch, he urged me to make sure it was on my pull list. It blows my mind that Chris Claremont was basically forced to create the series under duress. From the moment the book launched, I was all aboard for the story of a group of kids who were recruited to attend Xavier's school. At that point, the original X-Men were all adults, and this was a chance for Marvel »

Boone’s “Fault in Our Stars,” starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, was a surprise hit for Fox, with over $300 million in worldwide grosses on a $12 million budget. He’s also attached to direct Stephen King’s “The Stand” for Warner Bros. and has said that the studio is planning a four-part franchise.

Deadline reports that Fox has closed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars helmer Josh Boone to co-write and direct The New Mutants, yet another spinoff which will expand the world of the X-Men. Specific plot details haven't been revealed at this stage, but it sounds like it will focus on a new crop of young characters. While X-Men: Apocalypse is introducing younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, and Storm, you have to imagine that they'll be taking over the main X-Men franchise. It wouldn't be that surprising to see them show up here though. Regardess, Boone is set to co-write with Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner. Boone has been linked to the big screen adatation of Stephen King's The Stand, while the site mentions that he's among those who have been considered for Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man reboot. He'll next direct The Vampire Chronicles, »
As part of its effort to grow the X-Men into an expansive cinematic universe, Fox has inked a deal with The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone to co-write and direct The New Mutants, a standalone spinoff that will introduce a new generation of exceptionally gifted youngsters who could potentially join forces with the X-Men in future films.
Though Boone, who made his debut with romantic drama Stuck in Love, may seem like an odd choice to delve into superhero territory, he’s been a hot commodity for years now and is hard at work over at Warner Bros. on an ambitious, multi-film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand. The helmer reached out to King and became friendly with the writer, who also set Boone to work on an adaptation of Lisey’s Story. »

Fox is moving forward with the X-Men spinoff, The New Mutants, and has hired The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone to helm the picture. According to Deadline, Boone will co-write the screenplay with Knate Gwaltney (Kidnap), and Simon Kingberg and Lauren Shuler Donner, the stewards of the X-Men movie franchise, will produce. I'm honestly a little surprised that it's taken this long for Fox to move forward on an X-Men spinoff that isn't based on a solo character. I understand if they didn't want to pull focus from the current X-Men movies, but now that Apocalypse is looking more and more like the end of a chapter for the franchise, I'm wondering if the studio is now going to seriously branch out and start launching other teams. The X-Men comics have no shortage of spinoff teams, and this could be Fox's response to Marvel and Warner Bros/DC's crossover films. »
