A picture of Taylor Kitsch as Gambit in the upcoming Wolverine movie, via Empire (the January 2009 issue is a must have!):
Many are craving for a spin-off movie dedicated to gambit, but I’m not fan of the character. The idea of a stand-alone Gambit movie with Taylor Kitsch in the lead role would make the thing even less appealing… It would be definitely better if they keep their financial resources for Wolverine 2.
So let’s focus on a real Marvel hero: Wolverine!
If by any chance you know some Fox executives tell them to forget about the Gambit movie, and bring Wolverine 2!
I am concerned about if Kitsch will do Gambit justice or not. If he plays him really well then I will be all for a Gambit movie. Gambit’s my favorite X-Man and I think that he so does not get enough credit.
Dude, Gambit has just as good of a back story… if not better! He might not have been around as long as Captain American, but battles between Thieves and Assassins in New Orleans… c’mon how cool is that?!
