This is fucking odd.
On one hand this is good. It means Gambit WILL be re-appearing in the X-Men movies, with rumors being he might first appear in Apocalypse. It means Gambit WILL be getting a solo movie. Which means we should get into all the cool back story stuff with Gambit (Thieve’s Guild, lady’s man, maybe Sinister?). It all HAS to be an improvement over the abomination that appeared in Wolverine Origins.
But… Channing Tatum? No matter how well he is doing in the comedy front… his action movies kinda of suck. GI Joe blew junks all over the place. And Channing Tatum with a Nawlin’s accent? Seriously? Lol thinking about it.
Gambit is one of, if not my favorite, X-men. His powers are cool. His background is cool. His stuff with Mr. Sinister is cool/weird. I wanna see the REAL Gambit on screen… but it is hard to trust Fox in that regard. I really like a lot of the X-Men movies, but a lot of their characterizations are just waaaaaay off and I fear with this casting choice it is going to be way off again.
