Channing Tatum seems doubtful Gambit movie is happening now

September 17th, 2018 by Marc Comments

For what seems like forever now, Channing Tatum has been optimistic that his long-over due Gambit movie was still happening at 20th Century Fox.

Honestly, there’s been so much going on with the movie’s productions – it’s happening, it’s not – it has a date change, it has another date change – it has a new director, it has another new director – you can follow it all here if you need to catch up, we almost lost our way trying to keep up.

However, one constant throughout the whole thing has been Tatum’s enthusiasm and confident in the movie in which he was set to join the X-Men universe as the titular character.

However, now Collider’s Steven Weintraub has said he was talking to Tatum about the project and, well, things sound like they’re taking a dip with it: “He said nothing new to report and he’s got no idea if and when they’re making it,” reports Weintraub.

If this is true, then it seems that, as we suspected all along, with the Disney buy-out of Fox’s movies, we may see no more X-Men adventures. Still, that means he may to open to play him in the MCU if that happens.

Honestly, at this stage of the X-Force movie joined the ‘not going to happen’ camp we’d not be surprised. Disappointed, yes, but surprised? Sadly not.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
