Channing Tatum is Gambit

Spin Off Movie

At last, there will be Gambit movie. Variety is reporting that Channing Tatum will indeed play the Ragin’ Cajun, Gambit. The X-Man will get his own movie. X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner spoke about the casting of Tatum in the role.
 
“He’s a rogue, Channing — he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau. And he can handle the action, we all know that, “And he’s got a really good heart … I think he’ll be great for Gambit.” She then added, “And he’s a southerner too … he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans” (Total Film). 

So Gambit will get his own spin off movie. Donner also hinted that Deadpool (will Ryan Reynolds finally get that movie?) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) may get solo movies as well. 

Will Tatum get to play Gambit in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse? Will there be a Gambit movie before that? The third Wolverine film is currently set for 2017. What do you think Maniacs? Gambit movie? Tatum? 

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in theaters on May 23rd, 2014. X-Men: Apocalypse is slated to arrive May 27th, 2016.

 Even though Channing is overrated, he actually looks like the character.  The acting w/accent is what I'm worried about.

 I guess. I've got nothing against Channing and I don't know why folks hate this guy. But I always expected Taylor Kitch to return.

 Will Wolverine show up?

 So apparently this version of Gambit will play a lot of strip poker with his cards...  ;)

The only reason I like this is that I own a NM issue of Uncanny Xmen #266 and Xmen Annual #14...hopefully the movie increases its value ;)

I  actually thought Kitsch did a good job.  That poor kid can't win.  Not sure this is right, but I'll give Tatum the benefit of the doubt after 21 Jump Street.

I like Tatum, like him in the GIJoe movies and in that Sci Fi movie were he had the pointy ears( just saw the trailer). Think he will do good with this part, not sure why everybody hates him. Not sure gambit is a strong enough character to have his own movie. Were is the Magnetto movie we heard about?

I think Kitsch deserves another shot also.  I have liked all his movies to date whether bomb or not. 

I like Tatum mostly, and accept him as Duke, but I don't see him as Gambit, I am thinking of the trailer with the bad Spanish accent now....I know intentional but still....

Also for Deadpool, easy to fix his character from Wolverine O.  Might even give him those voices in his head which I love in the comics.  They could really do a lot with Deadpool done right, with R rating of course.

They should have given it back to Taylor.  Channing may be fine for the role...but it really is a slap in the face to Kitsch to pass him over.
