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.

    I can’t wait for this movie to get released so I can rush right out and not see it.

    Yes, gambit was a really stupid character….right up there with Cable.

  3. A standalone Gambit movie…
    If there’s a more boring idea out there, I never heard it.

    Meanwhile, FOX refuses to do what the people ask for: a Deadpool standalone movie. Just brilliant.

  4. “Sup. I’m Gambit. I tap into the energy of an object after touching it, then I turn that into kinetic energy. I have no idea what I just said. Wanna see my abs?”

  5. Let’s face it, no one was going to watch this movie anyway.

  6. What’s with these Hollywood fucko’s constantly recasting the superheroes. Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and now fucking Ben Affleck all playing the Dark Knight. Except for Adam West, that’s 6 guys playing Batman in less than 30 years. Wait at least a decade between retirement for Christ’s sake. Now we have Channing Tatum taking over Gambit for Taylor Kitcsh. So a pretty boy takes over for a pretty boy- Genius Casting! Just imagine how shitty Indiana Jones would have been if he had been played by 4 different actors. Just imagine how EXTRA shitty the fourth one would have been. And before some supercilious Hollywood intern lurking this forum calls me out for being a non-professional talking shit, I say “go eat a dick.” I saw “The Player”, I know the score. Making movies is not rocket science or medicine. All you have to do is sit in a meeting room and say shit like they did in the Flintstones. “Who’s baby is that? What’s your angle? and I’ll buy that.” But I agree with everyone else who says this movie will suck.

    • “They should have just stuck with Taylor Kitsch!” That’s your argument? Were you also bitching about how they recast Sabretooth for X-Men Origins: Wolverine?

      “They should have just kept Tyler Mane, and not let Liev Schrieber take over the role!” – said no one, I’ll bet

      • No where did I type “They should have just stuck with Taylor Kitsch!” If you had read my words, I wrote “So a pretty boy takes over for a pretty boy” which should have demonstrated my contempt for either choice to play Gambit. My point is for the iconic characters like Batman and, yes Gambit, whom I consider one of the iconic characters of the X-Men universe, is for Hollywood to perform their due diligence with their casting choices and cast with the future in mind. Harrison Ford, Christopher Reeve, and Christian Bale all committed actors who rose up to the challenge to play legendary characters multiple times.

      • I’m no comic-book freak, but I don’t think Gambit rises to the level of Superman, Batman, or Indiana Jones. Hell, even Hannibal Lecter was recast from Brian Cox’s initial performance.

        Liev Schrieber was like the best character they cast yet!

        And Idk wtf they did with the old gambit, but they should have got someone good. IDK who but if i was making the movie id find a billion better people than this megadouche…id rather see like jacky chan or justin bieber, or miley cyrus in drag…anything better then this. How can people be so stupid and clueless? Making a bad x-men movie takes soooooooooo much fucking skill, HOW CAN THEY RUIN THESE THIS BAD!! They can fuck up every batman, spiderman, daredevil, elektra, the flash, the fag, i dont care if they invent new gayer superheroes….but gdi do they have to fuck with Gambit? Or Xmen? This is the gayest thing I have ever heard. Someone please just kill channum tatum first!

      • Liev Schrieber was fucking awesome as Sabertooth.

      • Liev Schrieber was the best thing about that horrible abortion of a movie.

  7. That’s perfect, because no one likes Gambit anyway.

  8. Bringbackbabalu

    Wow I just randomly was googling xmen and found this news today, odd it would be on here. This dumb cunt should be euthanized now before she can make this abomination!


    ps-georgio wtf planet do you live on? let me guess you like cyclops or hugh manjack?

  9. Um, no Fish, it has been confirmed that Tatum wil show up X-Men Apocalypse first…it’s not in any sort of limbo
