    Default Le Diable Blanc: Amour et Appréciation de Gambit

    Prince of the Thieves Guild, the snake charmer, the Cajun gambler, the mysterious rogue with a dark past, Gambit is one of the most popular X-men ever! Blaming himself for the infamous Morlock Massacre, Remy Etienne LeBeau tried to redeem himself by becoming a mutant superhero. By numerous occasions he proved himself as a man of honor avec cœur d'or, wich is, heart of gold, that is not only capable of serving for the good, but of genuine love as well. Marvel's top ladies man, he was the one to say 'there's more t'love than th' physical'. So find some love in your cœur for this fabulous monsieur! It is shameful that there is no Gambit thread on CBR forums at this time. This is the all-new, all-awesome Gambit Appreciation thread! (Constructive criticism is accepted).

    Young Gambit was so hot he already looked like Leo Dicaprio at his best!



    And when he became older he was pure Johnny Depp!



    But then Gambit was one hot bastard in Wolverine and the X-men!

    You just can't not love him!



    Gambit played by Taylor Kitsch! Admit it, he was one of the very few good things about the movie!


    So appreci-freakin-ate!

    P.S. It's late and I tried my best <3.

    At least this appreciation thread was made with more than "Lets talk!" in the first post, unlike most new ones these days. It makes me like Gambit a little more.

    This is one of the better crafted appreciation threads, even if it is for a d-list character. Bravo.

    i wonder why Remy didn't get an invite to be a Dark X-Man.

    'Bout time ole Gambit got a thread. When I look at the Z-listers that have threads sometimes.... Seriously, I hope there's good stuff ahead for him so there'll be plenty to talk about here.

    And I agree, I really enjoyed Gambit in the Wolverine movie. That, and most of the actors doing a good job still allowed me enjoy the movie, in spite of a decidedly weak script.

    This reminded me of Gambit's original core, and why I liked him: Cool, mysterious loner in a trenchcoat, a N'awlins native and a sleight-of-hand-master. Throw in some really well-done action scenes with the staff and a 'Han Solo' moment near the end and they really had me hoping the X-movie franchise will continue and we'll see this incarnation again.

    I just really hate how the 616 Gambit had all the mystery sucked out of him. Even writers that genuinely tried to give him stories outside of the X-Men usually just wound up with "Gambit's stealing something. And along the way he tosses some cards and winks at some girls.". There's gotta be more to do with him than that!

    All eyes on Mike Carey now...

    Carey mentioned on his facebook a few weeks ago something about talking to Nick (I am assuming Nick Lowe) and said he thought he had plans for him due to there conversation. So not only do we have what ever Carey is planing but maybe marvel has plans for Gambit as well out side of Legacy.

    I didn't think movie gambit was that great. Come on he wasn't as mysterious as he should have been, he was like that fairy godmother aiding the main character when they need it. Was kindda forced for me.

    I love Gambit, but the movie one I thought didn't do much justice for the character.

    Brett P: Granted but then she goes into space......and gets merged with the almighty Griffin Force.

    You mean compared to the drek they did with characters like Rogue?

    While I agree they forced the character a bit to place him in the Wolverine movie compared to what they did to other characters like Psylocke's brief non-appearance to force her into a movie and then Emma's similar one in Wolverine, Gambit's was one of their better cameos. And certainly compared to the complete destruction of main characters like Rogue and even Cyclops (who I don't even like and think he got shafted by the movies), it was at least nice to see one character I wanted to see in an X-Men movie get it half right.

    Naira: Nice thread but don't you think a good Gambit clip from the movie not a Wolverine one with Gambit in it would have been more appropriate for a Gambit thread?
