Channing Tatum confirmed as Gambit for future X-Men spin-off


It’s no secret that one of the most beloved characters of the X-Men comics is Gambit, and with the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere in London yesterday, producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke to Total Film about bringing other X-Men characters to the big screen.

One of the characters that Donner mentioned was Gambit, and she also confirmed that Channing Tatum is set to play Gambit in a future X-Men spin-off movie. She explained that Tautm is perfect for the role, as “he’s not from New Orleans, but he is a southerner, and understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans.”

Tatum would follow on from Taylor Kitsch, who previously portrayed Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

With Gambit set to headline an X-Men film, could Deadpool also be in the queue to make his debut on the silver screen?
