Channing Tatum Still Doing Gambit
With so many X-Men projects taking place, we have been wondering about what happened to the film that was based on mutant Gambit? Well, Lauren Schuler Donner revealed that it’s still in the works. Could it be true? The film was suppose to be released back in October before both directors Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman dropped out of the project. However, Lauren announced that Gambit is still being made with Channing Tatum still attached to play the card-wielding mutant. The news was revealed in a tweet by Buzzfeed writer Jarett Wieselman when he said that Lauren is still working on it. It’s been a long time since we heard anything, so is it still possible that Gambit will be made soon? There’s no way to tell at this time, but there have been a lot of set backs giving lesser chances for the film to be made if anything else.

Black Panther Goes into T’Challa’s Past in the 1990s
As Black Panther starts preparations for production in Atlanta, there have been some new developments regarding the plot of the film. These new parts of the story reveal that audiences will pay a visit to the Wakandan King’s past in America during the 1990s. According to a report on the East Bay Times, we will be seeing Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa when he was younger and attended the Saint Mary’s College High School. Using the Oakland, which is a California-based AC Transit public transportation agency, Marvel will be using it’s 1990s logo for the film to show part of T’Challa’s time during America. So it looks like we will be seeing the young prince on this bus. This should be familiar with comic book fans as they know he travelled to America under the alias Luke Charles. It should be interesting to see the upcoming film delving into this part of the character’s life. With production happening in Atlanta, Marvel could be hiring an old vintage bus and putting the 1990s logo on it. What do you guys think of this development?
