CBMB: Lizzy Caplan Joins ‘Gambit’ X-Men Movie

By Muuka Muyumba

Emmy-nominated actor Lizzy Caplan has signed on with Fox to star opposite Channing Tatum in the upcoming Gambit movie. Gore Verbinski is slated to direct the first solo outing for the Cajun hero named Remy Lebeau who wields energy blasting powers.

Caplan is no stranger to the Marvel universe having played a lawless ne’re-do-well in the Item 47 short for Marvel Studios. That short is said to have convinced some at Disney that Marvel could do a TV series around the world-saving of S.H.I.E.L.D. Caplan is well known in comedy circles having come up as part of the James Franco/Seth Rogen scene of actors for some time. She has starred in such shows and films as Cloverfield, Mean Girls, Freaks and Geeks, The Night Before, and the Academy Award nominated 127 Hours.

She garnered great acclaim in Masters of Sex where she was allowed to stretch her dramatic muscles with Michael Sheen earning an Emmy nomination. No word on who she is playing, but fingers crossed for the introduction of a new Rogue!

Fox is looking to February 14, 2019 debut for the Gambit feature.
