This one had been talked about for a while, with Channing Tatum saying he wanted to play a superhero and that Gambit would be perfect (they’re both Southerners). At the MTV Movie Awards earlier this spring he confirmed he’d had a meeting with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner over just that. Now it looks like this is getting serious, after Shuler Donner talked up Tatum as Gambit to Total Film at the red carpet before the London premiere of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. No word yet on whether this is a stand-alone pic.
