As announced by Variety, the Gambit solo movie gets an official release date of October 7, 2016. It will be Fox’s eighth X-Men movie and stars Channing Tatum as the Ragin’ Cajun himself. Tatum will first play Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits theaters May 27, 2016.
Gambit has been one of the most popular X-Men since he first appeared in 1990, evidenced by how popular and expensive his debut in Uncanny X-Men #266 has always been. He is able to manipulate kinetic energy, typically by tossing around charged playing cards, and had a romantic relationship with Southern belle, Rogue. Gambit’s only other appearance on-screen was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
