In an interview with empire magazine, Tatum talked a little about the style and direction Gambit will take, saying;
“Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it’s killer. None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the X-Men world. But we’re going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies. It’s always about saving the world (Laughs), but maybe we’re going to shift things a little but. There’s so many ways you can take [an origin story]. You could do it like Batman Begins, or a different take and go the Guardians of the Galaxy route. All I can say is, I’m super excited.”
From his comments, it sounds as if we’re going to get a marriage of Batman Begins and Guardians. As grim and dark as Batman Begins, yet as fun as Guardians? Or probably somewhere in between, either way I’m all about it.
As far as the writing goes, Josh Zetumer hasn’t really done a whole lot. Although the Robocop reboot was much better than it should have been. Not sure how much the script had to do with that, but it certainly didn’t hinder it.
Overall I’m pretty stoked for this movie. Come on 2016.
