    A little out of nowhere, but for those saying that Channing couldn't get into Gambit shape, he just posted this...

    I'm not even saying he'd be good in the role (and that ship has probably sailed), but the man has some discipline!

Pretty much all his relationships outside of the guild are with females. So there is no reason to break something that works.


    Gambit is just someone that charms you and keeps the the story from being boring. He makes choices that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. He has no problem making a fool out of himslef to try to win Rogue's heart. Witch I think describes him well. The thief with a heart of gold. Allways in a internal battle between his different traits. Allways ready to talk himself out or into problem.




    Not really. Elements here and there.


    When writers dumb him down. In general there seems to be a problem with characters who are smart but not genius level. It's seems easier to group them into problem solvers and those that ask the, sometimes stupid questions, that move the story forward.
    When he's written as a emo character. While he might brood he doesn't do so when others, especially the ladies, can se it. Unless that is what works for whatever woman he is trying to seduce.


    Isolated to cards. He's got such a creative power that he needs creative fights. Also the gradual limiting of his explosions. Some seem to treat them as mere nuisances.


    Bring him back to a resonable power level. A typical alpha class mutant.


    Just a good hustle story with Gambit pulling some crazy scheme off.

    Sorry it's taken this long to reply LOL But I'm inundated with input from all over, so thanks for bearing with me ^_^

    I ask these questions (awesome answers btw) because I'm a part of a massive Marvel Fan collab project, designed by fans FOR fans, to brainstorm and create stories WE want for our favorite Marvel heroes! These stories will be brought to life via animation/fanime. It DOES start them as kids (long story why) but, then there's a time skip early enough and, moving forward, they'll be young adults ^_^ Also, this series is DIRECTED towards ADULTS, so regardless of them as kids, there's blood, use of guns and weaponry, suggestive themes and such. I've created a preliminary thread for everyone to join in on, and discuss this project, what they'd like to see and such! As for your answers...

    1. Starting off, Gambit is not at all a focus character, however, ever so gradually he does as it has been the request of many to give a GOOD Gambit focus story. However, that comes much later, and as a supporting member, we get plenty of highlights of his skill set, personality, hints and secrets of his dark past, loads of quips and an awesome showcase of his powers. His primary relationships are with girls in the show, however there plots showing a relationship with specific male characters, all very different from one and another.

    2. There have been others to describe him as the "thief with a heart of gold", and it is part of the mantra of his character development. He's set to be more of an antihero, with his quirks, and mischief. However, when it comes down to it, what he does benefits the team. And in the end, he chooses the team. Part of his quirks is how he handles his relationship with Rogue, and while she at first act as if she's annoyed by him, deep down, she not only loves his attention, but he's a big part in breaking down her own barriers.

    3. Don't worry, that's gonna be fixed real nicely ^_^

    4. OH yeah, that's something our writers have discussed a LOT about. In this version, Gambit's quite smart, able to figure things out, bypass all sorts of security, is very cunning and shrewd, and applies his knowledge in multiple ways. Gambit is difficult to write ONLY if you're not creative. I feel many canon writers don't know how to juggle the complexities of his character, and... honestly, I would be great if a Japanese manga writer wrote him for Marvel. Manga authors got more sense and depth with complex characters.

    5. Oh trust me, you have no idea when it comes to creativity. The chief writer is a MAJOR Gambit fan, and stated "just as Claremont saw potential in Jean Grey, its my time now to realize Gambit's full potential..." She has some insanely creative ideas to bring his powers to life, and take him as a character to new feats and levels. EVEN his use of cards, are evolved into something extraordinary.

    6. His power levels are being creatively handled. You and everyone else will like this twist ^_^

    7. He's gonna have plenty of moments like that... big ones, small ones, and mindfuck level ones lol

    Please join our main thread here for the conversation, and share more ideas and input! https://community.cbr.com/showthread...non-think-tank

Maybe sometimes they work for the X-Men? Sometimes against? Finally, answers to what his connections are to Sinister and the Black Womb project and his parentage.



    His casual charisma and doggedness, pessimism, and relative comfort in the gray of life. I love how loyal he is to the few people he loves, that he lives by his own code and ultimately has a heart of gold. That he is skeptical and hides his feelings most of the time. That heroism doesn't come naturally to him. That he is always is weighing the stakes and the odds, but loves the thrill of taking a risk. That what he wants most in life are people he can trust and that can love him despite himself. That he puts on many masks to hide his true opinions and feelings. That he has many regrets, but they don't stop him from moving forward.



    Not quite. All his incarnations have some correct elements, but none has the full story. *Amending because I was only thinking of the cartoons.* I think he was captured best by Claremont early on and again in X-Treme and The End, Fabian Nicieza in Gambit 1999, Marjorie Liu in X-23 and James Asmus in Gambit 2012.



    When he is played to be gross or creepy toward women or as the bumbling fool and team clown. When his skills are ignored and writers consider him a joke. When his accent is too France French rather than a Southern Yat or Cajun French.



    They don't have a direction for his personal character growth since he rejoined the team. They really haven't had a direction for him since his 2012 solo. I am a huge fan of his marriage to Rogue and love this development for him, but he needs purpose and interests outside of her as well.



    Show the skills he has outside of throwing charged cards. He's a master thief and has all the skills that come with that. He should have extreme dexterity and agility. Also show us the creative uses of his powers, like timed charges, disintegration, charging large objects ... also it's common fanon that he has enhanced night vision and a sort of spatial or empathic awareness due to sensing the inherent potential energy in people and objects.



    Give us a Gambit who is a little more dark, maybe even starts as a double agent and switches sides. Give us the epic romance with Rogue that no cartoon has quite been able to pull off.
    Hey there! ^_^ you already got an idea what's going on, so lets skip straight to your answers. These are awesome suggestions and insights, and they closely resemble a lot of what's already on the table, and being brought into his character.

    1. The Guild is being considerably overhauled and reworked. They're kinda like the Mafia meets Skull and Bones/the Occult, with influence in politics, the corporate world, and most definitely the Underworld. There's also exploration of their ties with entities and realms beyond the Mortal world, so that's gonna be freaking awesome. Their mysticism, their Prophesy of Le Diable Blanc, all of that is really getting an awesome face lift, and would be explored in much greater detail. One of the things that has already been introduced, is more Guilds, their connections with other organizations (the Hand was definitely mentioned), and exploration into how each of them operate. Early in the story, they'll actually be introduced, but in the shadows, with hints of who they are. Because of how well hidden they are, and the fact there's many operations for various purposes, they do in fact work for and against many establishments, such as AIM, SHIELD, even HYDRA, so we'll get loads of that

    Gambit's origins are explored in the most creative and fascinating way that this character's been needing for the longest. The plot with Sinister, Gambit's parentage... its all gonna really, really be good. Everything between Gambit and Sinister, has been well worked and partially re-imagined.

    2. Everyone talks about "the thief with a heart of gold" component of his character. Gambit shows loyalty to those he deems family, and certainly lives by his own code, which puts him at constant odds with the likes of Scott and Jean (Jean especially). Remy well guards his mind with his psionic static, and learn more ways to utilize that ability. The chief describes Gambit as an "antihero", the kind the layman can see themselves as, due to his transgressions, yet yearning to to correct them and move forward, in spite of himself. The trust thing is explored in a wonderful way, he most he's trusted on a psionic level is John Proundstar, who shares similar ideologies (somewhat), and John's genuine acceptance of Gambit for who he is, and not was, gains him a level of psionic bond that not even Jean Grey and Xavier understand. Storm he's shown to be trusting of, but heavily cautious, and Rogue he loves, but hides a lot from her, out of love and fear of losing the one person he loves the most. Its beautiful, love this plot, and you're hitting so many key points we're talking about.

    3. Trust me, this will probably be Gambit's best incarnation. I've said it before, and now again, chief stated that she wants to follow Claremont's footsteps in how he realized Jean Grey's potential, but doing so for Gambit. I believe many writers shutter at having to write him, because he's complex, and he requires a writer who has a love for complex antiheroes, has depth in storytelling, and knowledge beyond just comic stuff, such as metaphysics, psychology, and science (for his powers), and we're lucky chief writer is all three. Also... Gambit needs a writer who LOVES him, and WANT to write about him, and his story needs the imput of fans, who have good insights of his character.

    4. I HATE THAT too. I also hate his design from X-Evolution, just had to throw that out there. Gambit is humorous, not an idiot. He's sexual in nature, the chief states him being the ultimate example of a Scorpio, which are sexual in nature. But they aren't creeps, by default. I like the suave approach, from his cool, calm voice, his swagger, the way he works his accent, and how he'll use his attributes to be manipulative, should be the focus. And I agee with the accent thing... so many think he needs a French accent and like... guys, he's AMERICAN for godsake! I hope that for his adult voice, we can find someone that can capture a great Cajun/Southern accent.

    5. That is something his "evolution" brings in, which is a vast amount of direction and development for his character. Also, the Guild is going to be part of his story, as well as Doctor Strange and Doctor Voodoo. The destiny bestowed upon him during his "evolution" grants him so much to do, and also grants him a reason to love Rogue all the more. Grants deeper meaning to their relationship.

    6. We've talking about his skills and powers lol the chief writer has a multitude of ways for him to display the use of his powers, show what happens when he "overloads", and how versitile he can be. He's not just gonna be the master thief, but we'll see sleuth and stealth, his combat skills, and even low level hacking and handy work (for break ins, for example). Already, we'll get a broader scope of Gambit's powers, but its going to really explode during his character evolution. Nice knowing that about the fanon, as I know sensitivity to light is something discussed also. I like the spatial awareness, almost like Toph from Avatar, and how she used earth bending.

    7. We'll get plenty of Gambit's dark side, in various amounts and forms. The romance between him and Rogue is not just epic, but very emotional as well, and full of meaning. Not just their banter and usual antics, their relationship builds both characters considerably, AND Gambit and Rogue's relationship is key to events in the Phoenix Trilogy.

    AWESOME answers, wonderful insights and suggestions, KEEP IT UP!

    I always supported Tatum as Gambit from the start. He would be a great Remy and script was good. Sad that it never happend.

    First time I saw him was in movies like Step Up and Coach Carter. Then later Magic Mike. You gotta respect the fact he can keep it up decades later

    Hey.

    I said I wasn’t a huge fan, but after reading the script where I was only able to picture his face while reading it. Along with how bad Disney has been at casting lately, Artemis Fowl and Eternals I’m convinced Disney would cast a flavor of the month as Gambit and I’m almost convinced we could not get any better than Channing
