And one genre that’s rarely explored is the superhero realm is the romantic comedy. But that could all change with, of all films, Gambit. More on the story below.

New Mutants

It’s going to be a while before Marvel Studios can find a way to incorporate the X-Men films and characters into the MCU properly. So for the time being, Fox will be releasing their current slate of X-Men films as is. That slate included three films that were to be released this year. They were The New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

However, it looks like Fox has done some scheduling shifts for at least two of the films. Deadpool 2 is getting bumped up to an earlier release, while The New Mutants is getting pushed back, way back to next year. Gambit is also getting a new release date, but who knows if that film will ever get made. Check out when these films will be released in the full story below.

Channing Tatum Would Like To Play Gambit

Gambit. The one X-Men spinoff that seems to be having trouble finding a director. After losing two of its directors in the past two years, it looked like Gore Verbinski (A Cure For Wellness) may have been the director to finally make the Ragin’ Cajun film happen.

However, you can now add him to the growing list of directors who could not commit to the project, as Verbinski has departed the project. Find out what made the split happen in the full story below.

Lizzy Caplan in talks for Gambit

Remember how Gambit was one of the X-Men spinoffs FOX would be working on? The film would follow the critical and commercial success of Deadpool and Wolverine. Even Channing Tatum, who would star as the title character, appeared at SDCC to announce that the project was in development. But the film hit multiple production stalls and was even forced to be put on the shelf because they were unable to find a director. Both Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman walked away from the project due to creative differences. However, it seems like the studio was able to settle on Gore Verbinski to direct.

With a director locked down, the film can finally start taking the necessary steps towards production. But before they can do that, they have to assemble a cast. Reports say that Lizzy Caplan is in talks to be the first to join Tatum. More on the story below.

Gore Verbinski Could Direct Gambit

Gambit is just one of those X-Men spinoffs that has yet to enter production. The film has been in the development stage ever since they found Channing Tatum to play the title role. But one of the major problems is that the project has been unable to lock a director down.

Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman were both tapped to helm during separate occasions, but both left for their own reasons. However, it’s beginning to look like Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski might be the one to steer the ship. More on the story below.

Hugh Jackman ad Wolverine In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

20th Century Fox’s X-Men film franchise has been fairly successful, grossing over $4 billion dollars since they acquired the rights to the characters in the 1990s. Despite Deadpool performing well beyond anyone’s expectations, X-Men: Apocalypse had a poor box office showing, and many of the cast’s contracts are or are about to expire. That’s not all. Deadpool 2 is currently looking for a director. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Gambit is still in a production stall.

While the studio will release Logan next year, what comes next for the franchise is still very much in the air. Which is why, according to a new report, Fox is considering giving the X-Men another reboot. Check out the full story below.

Gambit

With the long-gestating Gambit still very early in the pre-production process, and an official start date to begin later next month, it started to look like the X-Men spinoff was unlikely to make its October release date.

Now, a new report confirms that Fox has pulled the film from its original scheduled release date. However, the studio has also announced two mysterious Marvel titles.

So let the speculation begin below.

‘Gambit’ Rumor: Channing Tatum Eyes Doug Liman To Direct Title Film

SDCC 2013: Edge of Tomorrow panel: director Doug Liman rumored for Gambit

Gambit, the Channing Tatum-starring vehicle, has been through a tumultuous pre-production. Contradictory reports said that the leading star was close to dropping out of the title film to pursue other projects, but ended up closing the deal to appear as the Ragin’ Cajun. Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) would then be confirmed to play the lead female role in the film. Weeks after that casting, director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler) left the film either due to scheduling conflicts or creative differences.

Whatever the case may be, it left Gambit without a director, which in turn forced the production to be pushed back almost six months. However, there appears to be a new rumor that says Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) may be in talks to direct the X-Men spin-off. More on the story here below.

Rupert Wyatt

Just as things were finally coming together for the Channing Tatum starring vehicle Gambit, Rupert Wyatt walked out on the film. The news broke not long after Tatum officially signed on to play the title character – after nearly walking out on it himself – with Lea Seydoux (Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) signing on to play the female lead Belladonna.

Wyatt said that he couldn’t commit to the project due to scheduling conflicts but wished the team well. That sort of answer is something you always hear when it comes to news like this. Of course it goes much deeper than that, and now it is being reported that creative differences are what drove Wyatt away from the film. More on the story below.
