In one New interview in Variety magazineChanning Tatum revealed that his hopes of playing X-Men member Gambit in a planned future movie were canceled after Disney/Fox merger — and he’s been so traumatized that he’s boycotted Marvel’s Avengers movies ever since.
“Once Gambit Tatum told Variety. “I turned off my Marvel machine. I was not able to watch any movies. I love that character. It is just too sad. It was like losing a friend because I was too ready to play with him.”
Tatum and frequent collaborator Reid Carolin – who wrote and produced both Magic Mike film – spent four years developing Gambit for the 20th century. It was originally supposed to be released in October 2016but was dropped from Fox’s release schedule earlier that year, then officially canceled in 2019. Based on the X-Men character of the same name – a brilliant thief who can manipulate kinetic energy – the film The theoretical gambit will aim for a break , R Rated Tone , more in the spirit of Deadpool movie than other Fox X-Men projects. It will also not be connected to X Men the clip. Tatum loved Carolin’s script, especially the main character’s fashionable personality.
Tatum describes: “They would call him ‘blooming’ in his description. “I won’t – he’s just the absolute best. He can pull anything out. Most superheroes, their costumes are utilitarian. Batman already has a belt. Gambit was like, ‘No, this thing just flies, man! This damn thing went down the runway in Paris last year. ‘ He only wears outrageous things because he loves fashion. ”
