Codename: Gambit!

This is the first news I've heard on the Wolverine movie front in MONTHS (and it makes me oh-so-happy): The reason I want to move to Texas and pretend to still be in high school, aka Hottie McBadBoy (Taylor Kitsch), has been cast as Gambit in the upcoming film.

Coming to a theater near me in 2009 (woo!)

This is doubly awesome news because, as I may have mentioned above, he makes me think inappropriate thoughts. Also, he will be playing Gambit, one of my absolute favorite X-Men characters (who was inexcusably absent from the three previous X-Men movies). Gambit has such a rich back story and his entanglement with Rogue was so epic that I'm still not completely over the fact that Singer and Ratner didn't see fit to have him show up at all.

Oh, Remy...you got the shaft. But not anymore!

But it's okay, because this egregious oversight has finally been corrected. Wolverine also stars (besides Hugh Jackman, naturally) Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds and Will.I.am and will start shooting this month in Australia.

There is so much pretty in this movie I kind of don't know what to do with myself.

If the script sucks (David Benioff, I'm looking at you), I will crack some skulls.
