Do you agree?
In an interview with Total Film (Via Superhero Hype, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that she thinks that Channing Tatum should play Gambit in a future film. Tatum has been campaigning for the role since September, but no actual deal has been made.
She said: "Well you know he's a rogue, Channing. He's a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that. He's got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he'll be great, he'll be great for Gambit, and he's a southerner too, he's not from New Orleans but he is a southerner and he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans."
Director Bryan Singer previously teased an appearance from Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016.
