X-Men Origins will "reveal the origins of the Wolverine character and introduce other mutants not yet seen in the "X-Men" franchise." Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine himself. According to Variety, Kitsch will play Gambit, a "card-throwing character" that Fox and Marvel have wanted to add to the X-Men franchise for a long time. has the role of John Wraith, "a mutant who has the power to teleport, and is another test subject of the Weapon X program that created Wolverine and other mercenaries."

Reynolds is cast as Deadpool, "an assassin with self-healing powers." The studios have eyed this character "for some time with the idea of spinning off [Deadpool] into his own film series should the character prove popular among moviegoers." So . . . next up: X-Men Origins: Deadpool?

I'm excited that Ryan Reynolds is going to be in the movie and man it's about time they introduced Gambit. He was always one of my favorite X-Men.

hmm ryan as deadpool? Not sure if I see that, but I won't miss this movie!! I'm stoked for Gambit finally. I'm just praying rogue isn't in it. I can't stand the girl that plays her. Rogue was tough and sassy, that girl is wimpy and annoying. AmyH - Deadpool is a bad guy, but he's always been a funny, sarcastic guy so Rya might be a good fit. I just hate to see Ryan as a bad guy, I love him too much haha! YAY X-MEN!

omg he's going to make an awesome gambit! ok i've never seen his work but he's sure good looking enough and he seems like a bad boy, which is great. i love gambit i wish he was added to xmen sooner. i want him to be with rogue... i think they should cast another girl to play her; i didn't really like anna paquin as rogue

Is Ryan Reynolds character a good guy or a bad guy. Either way he is toooo hot! Those movies are pretty good and this just seals the deal with me.

I wonder if they're going to leave Reynolds pretty or if they're going to grotesquely disfigure him just like the character in the comics.

I think Kitsch looks like the perfect Gambit. Gambit was always my favourite X-Man - can't wait to see him on the big screen!

Oh, this is awesome! Gambit! I was wondering if he would ever be in a movie! Didn't he and Rogue hook up at one point? Probably impossible now with how young she was in the movies.

Ok I love the X-men Movies, and in them most of the men end up shirtless, I hope Ryan ends up shirtless at some point. :D

Huh. Taylor Kitsch does not really look the part of my fav "Ragin' Cajun," but the X-men movies have not let me down yet, so I'll give him a shot... just let it be known that there will be a lot of sore people out there if someone ruins Wolverine, Gambit, and Deadpool all at the same time -- throw in Batman, and it'd be the hottest concentration of comicbook guys EVAR.
