It looks like one of our favorite X-Men characters may get his own spin-off movie after all. I was more excited about the Deadpool spin-off until I saw how FOX screwed up the character. I hope they are able to pull the original Deadpool character back at the end, if not I'll be even more pissed. Anyway back to the Gambit and his spin-off movie! It sounds like it is a possibility. I don't see why they wouldn't want to do it, he's such a great character. And he looks like he is going to steal the show in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'.
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner who has been involved with all of the X-men films has said that Gambit is one of her favorite characters. She also said that we would not see him in the 'X-Men: First Class' movie being developed because he wasn't a part of Xavier's school of mutants. But we might end up seeing him in his own spin-off film. She talks about how the idea is currently being thrown around in "internal discussions", and that "They are going to figure all that out".
I hope this all works out. Did I mention how awesome it would if Gambit got his own movie? I am more excited for that movie than I am for Wolverine and its just an idea for now. Donner also adds that they would love to have Bryan Singer to come back to direct. She says:
"Nothing would please me more than to bring Bryan [Singer] on for another movie. And, if it's like the first Deadpool or the first Gambit, I think, I mean, I hope he would be interested..."
That would be cool, but I seriously doubt he would want to come back after what happened with X-Men 3. But, never say never. So would you like to see a Gambit movie directed by Bryan Singer?
