Channing Tatum Is Officially Gambit

Remind me to buy Photo Boy a pony.

Channing Tatum has been rumored as the new Gambit after he openly threw his name out for a part that wasn’t even being cast or in development. But fortunately for him, FOX is in the business of pretending the two shittiest X-Men movies never happened which is why producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed to Total Film last night that Channing is officially signed as Gambit for what sounds like his own solo movie presumably because X-Men: Apocalypse has to be in limbo thanks to Bryan Singer allegedly forcing underage teenagers to jack off on his chest. Then again, it’s not like they can’t bring back Matthew Vaughn, and maybe even January Jones so Xander can finally have a little brother to compete for his mother’s hate with. Kids need a sibling.
