After his appearance in the ill-fated X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie, where he was played by Taylor Kitsch, it looked for years like he might finally get a proper movie, with Channing Tatum assaying the role.

Not only did the film's production lose its director, Doug Liman, the project was also forced to start from scratch after the team encountered creative issues with Gambit's original script back in August. The date had previously been locked in for an untitled Fox/Marvel release.

However, it seems like Gambit's ball has started rolling again, because according to a report by Deadline, Fox has just announced that the studio's scheduled Tatum's solo superhero film to hit cinemas on February 14, 2019.

The Gambit release date comes as Fox has been expanding its X-Men properties on the big screen, with 2018 seeing the release of New Mutants (set to open April 13), Deadpool 2 (June 1) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (Nov. 2). Gambit had been able to nab a director and a release date before with Rupert Wyatt as its helmsmen and a 2016 premiere, but production fell through because of creative issues.

Of all the characters in the X-Men canon, none has been so beloved for so long a time and so underserved since the '90s cartoon as Gambit, the Cajun charmer who can charge any inanimate object with energy and throw it, creating a small but powerful explosive.
