Channing Tatum says Deadpool made him rethink Gambit

Channing Tatum offers update on Gambit movie

X-Men fans have been waiting for the Gambit movies for years, and though the movie's been under development for some time now, the project's made little progress with very minimal updates for the public. Flash forward to 2017 and the actor's anticipated adaptation has yet to land a definitive date on Fox's release slate.

Following yesterday's Kingsman: The Golden Circle panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Channing Tatum spoke to Comic Book and confirmed that - unlike directors Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman - he's yet to abandon 20th Century Fox's planned X-Men spinoff Gambit.

"It's a great question. I have the same question", Tatum says (watch above). "But I think that we were coming to sort of the end of that phase of it at a really interesting time, where these movies went through a bit of a paradigm shift, where the X-Men movies and the superhero movies, with Logan and Deadpool - that really broke down a lot of doors for us. So we were trying to do some things that we actually weren't allowed to do, and they just smashed down the doors, and now we're kind of giving it a rethink". "We're not quite going there, because I enjoyed Gambit as a kid, so I don't want to rule out PG-13", he said.

Created by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee in 1990, Gambit, a New Orleans native mutant, quickly became a fan favorite due to his kinetic energy manipulation abilities and penchant for stealing. The character's only big screen appearance to date (outside his name being featured as an Easter egg in X2) was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch.
