Not too long ago, we finallyreceived official confirmationthat Channing Tatum would be playing fan-favorite Gambit in future X-Men films. However, exact details on his role in the series have been unclear. With so many films already in the franchise, and Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox working hard to build upon their already established universe, how is Gambit going to factor into all of it?
Earlier today, we spoke to Tatum while he was in NYC promoting his new film 22 Jump Street, and we asked him where we can expect to see Gambit show up first. He confirmed that the character will get a solo outing before he appears in X-Men: Apocalypse, and that he’s hoping to do something different with the film than what we’re used to seeing with superhero flicks.
