First reviews are starting to appear - this one is very spoilerific:

Thankfully most of the others seem to be a fair bit more positive so far, especially Variety and Hollywood Reporters.

The Channing Tatum casting is real. They've been working on that for the past couple of months since Lauren Donner suggested wanting him for Gambit a few months ago. I'm okay with it and think he fits the part and should do a great job with it.

I've a feeling this story has inflated or misinterpreted a quote but then again Variety is pretty reliable on these things. They're reporting that Channing Tatum is confirmed for Gambit for AOA:

Are they... "rebooting" Gambit?

Most likely yes since they recast and have been ignoring most of "Origins".

Is it confirmed that he's getting a solo movie? I can think of very few characters that I have less interest in.

I hope he can do the Cajun accent.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

X-Men movies finally as incomprehensible as the comics

“Our next movie introduces Cable, Cyclops’s son with a clone of Jean Grey who was raised by a cult in a dystopian alternate future led by his half-sister from a different dystopian alternate future and infected with a techno-organic virus before travelling to the present day to fight his evil clone Stryfe.

“It’s the kind of classic story we can all relate to.”

Bring it. I love convoluted alternate dimension time travel stories with evil clones!

I love Cable but his history in the comics is far too convoluted to be filmable.

I read that wholly unironically.

Yeah, I would never have guessed it was supposed to not be a serious announcement. I was excited for a second that mayb we were getting Cable in a movie.

I have to agree. I'm a big fan of Cable, but they would have to rework him a good bitto make him fit in a movie, and the end result probably wouldn't be worth it.

It will be tough explaining how two dead people gave birth to someone.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Probably the easiest way to manage it would be to say he's the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey from an alternate future and leave it at that. His whole thing is being a big badass soldier from the future, anyway, which shouldn't be that hard to sell onscreen.

It's been said before that Stephen Lang would be a perfect Cable.

He's an alternate future Wolverine in the Ultimate Universe. They could always go that route and still have a version of Wolverine after Jackman leaves.

Recasting doesn't necessarily mean rebooting. No matter what happens with the time travel, Gambit in 1973 should be the same person we saw in Origins, just earlier.

The Wolverine referred back to Origins and also led into DOFP with its stinger. Thus, DOFP and Origins are in the same continuity.
