In the news from the world of things I refuse to believe until I see it, Channing Tatum's Gambit has a real live release date. The actor is slated to star in a film focused on the card throwing super hero in 2016.

Over the summer, the actor announced his desire to take on the role of Gambit, the Marvel superhero. A release date has been confirmed from Fox, according to The Wrap. The movie will see the light of day October 7, 2016.

It will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's also rumored that he'll appear in X-Men Apocalypse.

Gambit is a very popular Marvel character. He's been around since the 90s and has remained on top lists of fan favorites since then. He's been involved in various story lines as a main character. He's also been involved in various games, movies and television shows.

That being said, his appearance in TV and movies has always been surrounded with a lot of hype but ultimately always seems to end up in disappointment.

It's almost as if no one know what to do with him. Being such a huge face in the Marvel-verse, his roles have never quite lived up to that. Also he often appears as a bad guy for some reason. Must be that "King of Thieves" title.

As for now, there's a bit of a wait until we can see Gambit on the big screen. Stay tuned for more updates on the hero as we get closer to the release date.
