Gambit: Recently, producer Simon Kinberg talked about upcoming X-Men spin-off projects. He says that Deadpool 2 will comment on "superhero movies. The sort of glut or saturation of these movies and the proliferation of sequels is definitely something we’ll play around with.” As to delays on Gambit, which will star Channing Tatum (above), Kinberg says: "When you have these movies that need a very special and unique tone, it takes a little while to find that tone … we want to make sure that we capture that voice on the page. … I think we’re really close right now."
