They have now cats the role of Gambit for the new Wolverine film. Taylor Kitsch (of Friday Night Lights fame) has signed on for three films. That is great. I would hope that means that our adventures into the world of the X-Men are far from over (although, they may have a tough time getting all of those big stars to come back for each film).
Also, Smallville's Kristin Kreuk has been cast as Chun Li in the upcoming Street Fighter movie. I love her. I think she is still my celebrity crush (Sierra says I'm allowed one). However, this doesn't really make me any more excited for the movie. Somehow, I can't help but get a Fast and Furious vibe from it. We'll see.
