Fox is not one to wait and see what happens with the X-Men: Days of Future Past as it continues to push the Marvel franchise forward with news that Gambit will be featured in an upcoming spin-off movie.
Just announced is Channing Tatum (Magic Mike) as playing Gambit in a not-yet-named X-Men movie. The casting was announced by producer Lauren Shuler Donner at the premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past in London.
“I think he’ll be great for Gambit.” She added, “And he’s a southerner too … he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans.”
Total Film were on the X-Men Days of Future Past ‘blue carpet’ and grabbed producer Lauren Shuler Donner who chatted all things Gambit with us.
Is this good news or bad news for Gambit fans? And can Gambit hold his own in a stand alone movie? I know there’s at least one person in the Major Spoilers HQ who is ready to buy a ticket!
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on May 23rd, with the sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse arriving May 27, 2016.
