Channing Tatum’s Gambit Dreams Have Come True


Lauren Shuler Donner has confirmed that Channing Tatum will play everyone’s favourite Cajun card thrower Gambit.

Tatum has been very open in his desire to play the character and the lucky boy’s wishes have come true, as well as a chiseled jawline and six-pack…

Here at we don’t recognise the previous attempt of a Gambit like character in Wolverine Origins: The Wolverinening, so this will be the first time Gambit will be played in a live action movie. You got that? THE FIRST TIME.

Tatum has proven his comedy chops in 21 Jump Street so hopefully we will see the trademark Gambit wit come through. Bryan Singer has hinted that Gambit will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse so only 2 years to wait until to hear the Creole Drawl. Colour me excited.

However I’m even more excited for Shuler Donner’s hint at a Deadpool and a Gritty X-Force movie. I’d kind of given up hope of a Deadpool movie but this has reignited my spark. Even if the best we get is an X-Force Movie, if it is gritty then we will be in for quite the treat.
