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.
