Channing Tatum to appear as Gambit in X-Men Apocalyps

Comicbook.com has dropped news that Channing Tatum could appear in X-Men Apocalypse as the raging Cajun Gambit.

Super-Scooper El Mayimbe is at it again. This time he has revealed three characters/actors that will make a cameo in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
First off, he says X-Men veterans Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry will reprise their Wolverine and Storm roles for cameos in the upcoming X-Men film. Jackman isn’t much of a surprise as 20th Century Fox always makes sure he finds a spot in their X-Men films, but Berry is a bit of a surprise as they cast Alexandra Shipp to play a younger version of Storm/Ororo Munroe.
While X-Men newcomer Channing Tatum will make his debut as Gambit, which is something that has been rumored ever since it was revealed that he was playing the Cajun, card-tossing mutant.

Gambit first appears in Uncanny X-Men #266 or Uncanny X-Men Annual #14 depending on which side of the argument you are on. (266 more commonly accepted, annual 14 is much cheaper.)

    1. LOL You can’t hate on Channing. He’s got the roots to match Gambit so he may kill it. I’m rooting for him to nail it anyway, Gambit is awesome.

      1. There’s just something about him.. he’s eye candy for the ladies but his acting to me is usually sub par. I think he’s only in movies cause he’s a good looking fella. Even my wife thinks he sucks.. but here’s to hoping he doesn’t screw up Gambit cause my wife loves Gambit.. I like Gambit.. everyone loves Gambit. 😉

  1. It’s hard to picture him as Gambit for sure. He was pretty comical in This Is The End poking fun at himself. The scene in 22 Jump Street where he realized his partner hooked up with his bosses daughter was hysterical. Gambit though, tough time seeing it.

  2. Yeah my wife’s favorite X-Men is Gambet cuz of the playing cards. And she wanted the Gambet from Wolverine origins to play him but she says she will give Channing a chance. I personally never liked Gambit. I was more of a cyclops and Wolverine kind of guy lol

  3. He was recently quite awful in Jupiter Ascending. On the other hand, he was pretty decent in Foxcatcher. Life is like Channing Tatum’s acting, you never know what you’re gonna get. lol
