'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit' gets a release date for 2019

Gambit always was known for being a romantic, so it's only appropriate that his movie is opening on Valentine's Day.

Alternatively, it could just be that they're attempting to ape the success of fellow X-Men breakout movie Deadpool, which released on the same date past year to massive box office numbers.

Channing Tatum will star as Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit, the mutant who has the ability to convert the potential energy into kinetic energy often using energy-charged playing cards as projectiles. Tatum himself turned up at San Diego Comic-Con way back in 2015 to tease the film, but since then it's gone through two directors (Ruper Wyatt and then Doug Liman), script changes, and all other kinds of development hell.


However, it seems like Gambit's ball has started rolling again, because according to a report by Deadline, Fox has just announced that the studio's scheduled Tatum's solo superhero film to hit cinemas on February 14, 2019.

The 20th Century Fox has also confirmed on Thursday that Pirates of the Carribean filmmaker Gore Verbinski will be directing the X-Men spin-off.

The film joins fellow X-Men films X-Men: The New Mutants (April 13th, 2018), Deadpool 2 (June 1st, 2018) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2nd, 2018) as films from the franchise with release dates.
