Channing Tatum over superheldenfilm Gambit


Channing Tatum zal Gambit spelen in de X-Men-franchise. MTV sprak de acteur over zijn ambities:

“Creatively, we’re starting to chug forward. Obviously there’s nothing [official]. There are only conversations and dreams right now, really. I’ve been pretty vocal about wanting to be the part of Gambit for a very long time. It’s a weird, pinching-myself moment that we’re even having the conversation.”

Oorspronkelijk was gepland om het personage te introduceren in X-Men: Apocalypse, maar mogelijk gaat dat veranderen:

“We’ve talked about it being a standalone, first, and actually trying to change the ‘hero, superhero movie.’ Because Gambit is not your typical hero. He’s a thief. He walks on the gray. I’m hoping we can change it a little bit, and then ultimately feather into the other ones. The machine of the Marvel world is so ginormous that it’s literally like climbing a mountain, getting one of these movies made, and all of the pieces that go along with it.”
