Channing Tatum is still set to play Gambit on the big screen.
That’s according to X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, who confirmed the news via a Twitter exchange.
Tatum has been confirmed to play the role of the Mutant-charmer for over a year now but little has been heard in recent times of the current stance of the film. Gambit was rumoured to appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, but that never happened. Fox removed the movie from their schedule last February and little has been discussed in regard to the movie’s status.
Thankfully, we now have some sort of confirmation.
