Channing Tatum Is Officially Confirmed As GAMBIT


Earlier this morning producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that after months of campaigning for the role, Channing Tatum has officially been cast of Remy LeBeau aka GAMBIT. Head inside for more!

“Well you know he’s a rogue, Channing. He’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that. He’s got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he’ll be great, he’ll be great for Gambit, and he’s a southerner too, he’s not from New Orleans but he is a southerner and he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans.”

Bryan Singer had already hinted that he wanted to bring the character in for X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 so we’ll probably get sort of a cameo (maybe) and we’ll be getting a solo movie after that.

FOX has a date set for an untitled Marvel movie for July 18, 2018 and Gambit could be that movie.

Gambit was created by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee in 1990 and has the ability to charge energy to any object he touches and he’s known for being a bit of a thief.
