It's official! Channing Tatum is Gambit! Despite reports that the actor was wanting to back out of the project, THR confirms that Channing Tatum has officially closed his deal, making him part of 20th Century Fox's Marvel family. The film will open in theaters October 2016.
Most expected that the actor would eventually sign his deal. And fans were shocked to hear that he wanted out. The project seemed to be falling apart as sources close to the production suggested that Fox and Channing Tatum couldn't come to terms on the contract. While that is now proven untrue, it is said that the studio and the actor did hit a sensitive spot in negotiations. That sensitive spot was not disclosed to the public.
News of Tatum’s official involvement in the “X-Men” spinoff lays to rest the rumors that the project was falling apart.
Tatum has been tied to the superhero pic for some time as producer and star. He even appeared at Fox’s Comic-Con panel with the cast of “X-Men.” Details on the extent of Tatum’s involvement in future “X-Men” projects are still under wraps.
“Gambit” is slated for an October 2016 release.
Tatum is repped by UTA.
The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family
In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.
Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #1 (2001)
Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Colors by Jc
Published by Marvel Comics
Back in 1972, Marvel’s most iconic character got a second solo title. With a twist. It was called Marvel Team-Up and featured Spider-Man (and sometimes Human Torch) meeting and fighting crime with a variety of guest stars, both famous (X-Men) and obscure (Werewolf by Night). This stories acted as fun standalone superhero adventures while also introducing readers to the wider Marvel Universe in a pre-Wiki era.
Ultimate Marvel Team-Up was launched by Ultimate Spider-Man writer Brian Michael Bendis and his editor Ralph Macchio (He didn’t act in Karate Kid.) to introduce important Marvel characters to the Ultimate Universe without taking time away from Spider-Man’s personal stories in Ultimate Spider-Man. The book also was a showcase for a smorgasbord of comics talent, who normally wouldn’t draw Spidey, the month’s guest star, »

Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #1
Written by Sam Humphries
Art by Alti Firmansyah
Colors by Jessica Kholinne
Published by Marvel Comics
In Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #1, Peter Quill finds himself separated from his fellow remaining Marvel heroes on the life raft (after the events of Secret Wars #4) and as a lounge singer in Manhattan. The sight of Star-Lord (or Steve Rogers as he goes by now) singing songs from The Little Mermaid and Sleeping Beauty is quite hilarious (and a tiny bit emotional in one scene) and will definitely have fans racking their brains for which Disney prince Chris Pratt should play. The main plot continues the Secret Wars-wide theme of certain characters finding “anomalies” that prove that maybe Dr. Doom isn’t a god, and the universe has been around longer than him. The main plot of the comic rests on the fact that Kitty Pryde and Star-Lord had a »

Published by Marvel Comics
I would like to begin by welcoming you to my new weekly column “The History of the Ultimate Universe” where arc by arc, issue by issue I will break down each comic set in Marvel’s Earth-1610. The Ultimate Universe was created by Marvel president Bill Jemas and editor-in-chief Joe Quesada in 2000 to bring Marvel’s greatest superheroes to life in a way that would be more accessible to new fans, including teens and young adults. Basically, Jemas and Quesada allowed their creators to build the Marvel Universe from scratch and attempt make it more relevant to the early 21st century.

“Ant-Man” demonstrates both the power of the Marvel brand and what can hold it back.
The film’s $58 million debut would have been a strong start for nearly any other company, but for Marvel, which has fielded a dizzying number of blockbusters, it is something of a disappointment. “Ant-Man’s” opening ranks below the numbers that films centering on Captain America, Thor and Iron Man put up during their launches. More importantly, it failed to top the $60 million domestically that most analysts predicted it would make this weekend.
There is a crucial difference, however, between “Ant-Man” and other superhero movies. In the Marvel universe, Ant-Man is more of a utility player than star attraction. Given the dubious pedigree, it’s doubtful that many other companies could have made a movie about a man with the powers of a household pest and enjoyed stronger results.

It’s a common complaint from comic book fans whenever the first images of their favourite characters from a new movie are released: “they don’t look like the comics”.
Even going back as far as Bryan Singer’s X-Men, there were those in the comic book community who bemoaned the fact Wolverine was not in the classic yellow suit, or that Cyclops wasn’t clad in blue, or Storm wasn’t in white. Daredevil’s suit looks like it’s left over from a bondage party, Thor isn’t wearing his trademark helmet, Superman is missing his red panties. The list goes on.
But what people seem to forget is that these are movie adaptations and interpretations of comic books, not literal translations. And, as such, things are going to change.

Aside from being co-creator of many of Marvel Comics. most iconic heroes and villains, comic book legend Stan Lee also has another prestigious title: the king of cameos. In most Marvel movies, you can usually catch him on screen for a brief moment, sometimes even getting to deliver a humorous line. While his decades-long list of cameos is diverse, from the TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk to May.s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Lee just revealed he.s really psyched about what he.ll be doing next year in X-Men: Apocalypse. When asked by a fan what his favorite cameo has been so far last Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con (via Business Insider), Lee admitted that while he loves them all, he particularly liked the one he did "for the next X-Men movie." This led to the panel.s moderator whispering something, presumably about how he.s »
The X-Men movies took comic books seriously, exploring themes of isolation and prejudice present in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Marvel creations. It's fair to say that without the X-Men movies there'd be no Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy.
To mark X-Men's birthday, Digital Spy dived back through all seven franchise instalments to present a (non-definitive) ranking:
7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
Oh, Fox. If this is how you try to make up for The Last Stand, we need to have a serious talk. Logan's origin story proves, at best, an unnecessary and forgettable outing that could have been so much more.
For all his hard work, Hugh Jackman couldn't elevate this film above its poor script, by-the-numbers storytelling and laughably bad CGI. Now »

One of the staples of pretty much every single Marvel film, whether they’re from Marvel Studios, 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures or Sony Pictures, is a cameo from Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee.

One of the staples at Comic-Con every year is Stan Lee, who made an appearance during 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel and was part of the massive superhero selfie, with the casts of Deadpool, Fantastic Four and X-Men: Apocalypse. The comic book legend also appeared at an "ask me anything" panel, where he was asked what his favorite cameo was in all of his Marvel movies. He revealed that his favorite is the one he just filmed, for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, which is "different" than any other cameo he has ever shot. Here's what he had to say below.
"I did a cameo for the next X-Men movie. When you go see the next movie when it comes out, and see my fantastic cameo, you will say, 'I remember he told me about it here.' It's a different cameo in that it has one additional thing in it. »
At the end of Fox's panel on Saturday at the San Diego Comic-Con, Stan Lee made a surprise appearance to take a photo of all the superhero actors - from Deadpool, Fantastic Four, and X-Men: Apocalypse - on stage. However, Channing Tatum then showed up much to the delight on the 7000 strong crowd, and moderator Chris Hardwick proceeded to take an epic selfie of the many actors. A video has now gone viral of what happened when the whole thing was over though. As you can see, the 92 year old creator of the X-Men struggles to leave the stage, and while the rest of the actors all start heading off the other way, Gambit star Channing Tatum leaps into action to help Stan out. That's pretty awesome of him, eh? Then again, what would you expect from someone who writes emails like This? Be sure to let us know your »
