Channing Tatum led “Gambit” Film Coming October 7, 2016

We know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for a Gambit film set in Fox’s X-men franchise. Or at the very least you’ve said “Eh, that could be decent.” Either way, it’s not a terrible thing, and since life seems to be occupied by terrible things lately, I’m choosing to get excited for it.

I have very, very low standards right now.

Tatum was revealed to be cast to play the Cajun member of the X-men in a solo film a while back, but everyone was expecting a 2018 release date. Well, according to Channing Tatum’s twitter account, it’s coming a bit sooner than that:

So Hooray! I guess! This isn’t a bad thing at the very least!
