Channing Tatum confirmed he would be playing "Gambit", an X-Men from Marvel comics by simply tweeting “How do you say October 7, 2016 in Cajun?” Gambit is Cajun and will be a little harder than saying "My name is Jeff"....although maybe if he expands on that accent, he might just make a go of it.
Although a Marvel character, "Gambit" is a 20th Century Fox spin-off from their X-Men movies, just like "Spider-Man" is put out by Sony and not the Marvel movie division.
20th Century Fox also announced that Fantastic Four 2, another Marvel Comics group, will now have a release date of June 2nd, 2017.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Just who isn't doing a super hero movie?
Marvel has released the first full size/human size (sic) trailer for Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man.
Interesting set up for Rudd's debut, even making fun of the name.
For more on Ant-Man visit EW.com.-DocFB
Diagnosis: People were making fun of "Guardians Of The Galaxy" as well. Will there be "Ant-Man" jokes that will hold when the movie debuts this summer on 7-17-15?
After "Guardians Of The Galaxy", Marvel really feels it can do whatever and put out whatever they want and it will be a hit. Case in point with the first trailer for "Ant-Man" that was released today in insect size. Even if you have the i-Phone or Galaxy S7000, you are going to have trouble seeing it.
What a telling trailer right?
What we do know is that Paul Rudd will be playing Ant-Man. The Verge blew up parts of the trailer as large screen caps that might tell more of what is going on with a few jokes at your own expense. If you can wait, you can see the "human size" trailer on Agent Carter this Tuesday January 6th on ABC.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We are still waiting for that "Dazzler" movie to be given the green light.
Gabrielle Union was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night and talked about going to Hollywood parties with Chris Rock and going to PRINCE's house for one of his legendary parties.
Gabrielle talked about being shy and telling the music superstar that she should have brought a tuna casserole to the party. Yea...no. Maybe some chamomile tea and a large size honey instead. Don't forget to check out Top 5 hitting theaters soon!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Fallon needs to work on his Prince impression. Was amazing the previous times he did it.
Alicia Keys has hooked up with Kendrick Lamar for "It's On Again" which is on The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" soundtrack. The song is produced by Pharrell, who cameos in the video.
Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Digging Alicia's look...and the song.
Chadiwck Boseman is slated to play James Brown in the bio about the funk legend's life entitled "Get On Up". The movie is slated for release later this year through Universal Pictures.
For just a trailer, it looks pretty good. Also unlike the Jimi Hendrix bio starring Andre 3000, James Brown's music will be used and performed in the movie.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Looking forward to this and the Hendrix one. This one a little more-so....
Andre 3000 is about to star in "All Is By My Side" where he plays Jimi Hendrix in this bio movie. The movie was written and directed by John Ridley who just won an Oscar for "12 Years A Slave" for Best Screenplay.
The scene surrounds Jimi's decision in moving to London. "All By My Side" will be screened next week at SXSW.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The Hendrix state was reluctant to let any of Jimi's music appear in the film so do not expect to hear any of Hendrix's music in the film.
