Can you see the Gambit in Tatum?

Gambit, the Cajun card-slinging mutant famous in X-Men universe is getting his own movie, starring Channing Tatum (GI Joe) in a new announcement by Fox Studios. We’re guessing the movie will hit on the 7th of October 2016 via actor’s Twitter that allegedly said “How do you say October 7, 2016 in Cajun?”

X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner already confirmed Channing Tatum’s involvement in the spin off movie way back in May 2014. The star is confirmed to be playing Gambit, famous for his gambling habits and special powers over kinetic energy.

In an E! Online article, the producer gushes, “Well, you know, he’s a rogue—Channing—he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau [Gambit’s real name],” she continues “And he can handle the action—we all know that! And he’s got a really good heart.

He’ll be great for Gambit,” she said. “And he’s a Southerner, too! He’s not from New Orleans, but he is a Southerner and he understands that world.

Gambit appeared for the first time in cinema in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) portrayed by Taylor Kitsch.
