NeXt-Men: 8 Spin-offs We Want To See More Than Gambit

With X-Men: Apocalypse almost upon us, and Deadpool close behind, we’ve been following the X-news pretty closely. The only other officially announced film in the Fox series so far has been Gambit, starring Channing Tatum and Lea Seydoux. Gambit is a bit of a surprising gambit (yeah, we went there) and interesting choice for a spin-off film, considering the new canon, following the events of Days of Future Past, which rewrote the timeline and pretty much erased Taylor Kitsch’s turn as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So we can certainly get behind bringing the fan favorite character to the big screen.

With that being said, in our eyes there are a number of characters and teams who deserve their shot on the big screen a little bit more than Remy LeBeau. While we have nothing against Gambit, there are already a number of properties that have been partially set up in the X-Men’s Cinematic Universe, including a number of characters we just want to see more of. Today we are going to take a look at a number of these potential spin-offs that we would love to see, starting with someone we hope to see in another rumored spin-off.

Adapted: 5 Classic X-Men Storylines That Would Make Great Films

Aspects and characters may change in the translation, but the important pieces of the original storyline are generally always carried onto the big screen. Some of the more obvious examples are 2004’s The Punisher, which pulled heavily from Welcome Back, Frank by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.  X2: X-Men United took characters and plot from God Loves, Man Kills by Chris Claremont and Brent Anderson, and Watchmen was nearly a direct panel-by-panel adaptation of the comic, almost to a fault.

10 Comic Books Best Suited For The Small Screen

With all the news lately regarding different comic book adaptations heading to TV, I couldn’t help but notice a lack of ‘superhero’ content in the shows. Which is fine, some of the stories like 100 Bullets and of course the smash hit The Walking Dead are great without featuring powers, costumes, any of that.

But that’s not what I’m listing today. I understand the problems with bringing brightly colored costumes and powers every week to the general public, which is made clearer by the numerous attempted hero pilots and TV shows, some of the worst ones we listed here. But there are some heroes out there that I think are perfect for TV.

Here’s the Top Ten Superheroes Suited For The Small Screen:
