News of Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie has become redundant, what with all the times it was allegedly going to “begin filming early next year.” Today, X-Men series producer and writer Simon Kinberg offers another update on the delayed spinoff, assuring fans that it’s still very much in development and they have every intention of hopefully, maybe, possibly filming it next year — but hey, ask again in six months and we’ll see what’s up then.

When you hear talk of the standalone Gambit movie, most — well, pretty much all — of it has the word “delay” in there somewhere. The movie started off strong: Channing Tatum signed on for the title character, it had a director, and everything looked good. Then, the first delay happened, it lost director Rupert Wyatt, got a new one, and was delayed some more. But fans of the trickster need not lose hope yet: X-Men producer Laura Schuler Donner says Tatum is still signed on to do a standalone Gambit movie in the future. We just don’t know when.

The future was looking bright for the X-Men franchise after Bryan Singer revived it with First Class, but after this summer’s Apocalypse, it’ll take a lot to get the mutants back on their feet. The upcoming Wolverine solo joint Logan will see Hugh Jackman comb his hair into ears for one last ride, but after that it’s anyone’s game. Today, we hear there’s a new X-Men movie shooting sometime next spring, but which one is it?

Some movies just seem destined to never get made. It’s been two-and-a-half years now since people first reported that those Channing Tatum rumors surrounding Gambit had some basis in fact, and while many comic books fans are excited to see the lovable Cajun rapscallion get his own movie, it seems that the production rumors and casting and hiring process was doomed to spin on well past the point where Tatum was young enough to still play an action hero.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Post Credits Scene Revealed

When Bryan Singer’s latest X-Men adventure was screened for critics a few weeks ago, there was no post-credits scene attached to the end of the movie. In fact, several of the critics at the New York screening booed loudly after they sat through the entire closing credits only to find... absolutely nothing at the end. But now that the movie is out in theaters internationally ahead of its U.S. debut next week, it’s clear that there is a post-credits scene that was held back from early screenings. Sneaky, sneaky. If you can’t wait and want to know what’s in the scene, here are the details.

Gambit has had a few…problems. There were the rumors that Channing Tatum was going to walk over budget disputes, then Rupert Wyatt left the film without a director, eventually replaced a couple months later by Edge of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman (reportedly Tatum’s top choice). With an October release date approaching, it seemed a bit crazy that Gambit could be ready in time, but now it appears that the latest X-Men solo spinoff has been given a reprieve as Fox has yanked it from their schedule and set release dates for two additional, unnamed Marvel projects.
