When I heard there would be a movie titled Gambit scheduled for release in October of this year, I got psyched. Gambit was always one of my favorite of the X-Men and while I thought Taylor Kitsh was fine playing the Cajun mutant in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the part was very small and the movie, while entertaining, is not great. I thought to myself 'with a whole film to himself, origin story and all, this character can be incredible.' However...

Turns out Gambit is a romantic comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth. It is written by the Coen brothers so not a 100% letdown, but pretty disappointing nonetheless. Well, I guess I'll just have to wait for the X-Men reboot around 2028.
