Channing Tatum Confirmed For GAMBIT Role, Should We Expect To See Him In X-MEN APOCALYPSE?

On the red carpet for the premiere of X-Men Days of Future Past, producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed to TotalFilm, that Channing Tatum (Jupiter Ascending, 22 Jump Street) has been cast as the new Gambit. His actually participation in the X-Men universe hasn't been revealed, but Bryan Singer mentioned the character for X-Men Apocalypse. A solo movie featuring Remy has been in development since X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and it seems like the studio might have a viable actor to finally head-up the franchise.

Fans of Taylor Kitsch might be disappointed but shouldn't be shocked. Kitsch post-Origins led two of the biggest box office disappointments in the last decade with Battleship and John Carter. Not exactly the type of actor wanted for a budding comic book franchise.
