My nightmare has come to fruition.









OK so it's not that bad but I just don't like him for the role honestly...

This is my nightmare...

Hopefully it's a solo movie so I can just skip it, instead of having to watch him in a group movie.

I'm not interested in seeing a solo movie, so I hope he appears in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Likely he appears In APocalypse and reaction to him In that will detmine if a solo film moves forward.

Tatum's popular right now and will draw attention. I hope he does well in the role!

I'm willing to give him a shot. It will come down to how the character is written. If he's represented as a womanizing scoundrel with lots of cheesy one-liners (while maintaining a non-campy quality), then he could work. I am a die-hard Gambit fan ,and as such, I am happy to hear that Gambit will finally be in a proper X-men film and get his own film. My favorite parts of the ultimate dud X-film, Origins, are the scenes with Gambit in them. More Gambit on the bigscreen,makes me tres happy mes amis!

I am somewhat fine with Channing as Gambit, though I am not here for a solo movie when there are so many more deserving characters. But maybe he will interest me enough in X:A that I may check it out.

Apparently, he'll be introduced in X-Men: Apocalypse, and then potentially get his own spin-off film later. As for Tatum, the times that I've had problems with him is when they try to make him a straight-up badass. But Gambit isn't a straight-up badass anyway. Tatum has good comedic timing and he can be charming, both of which are traits that Gambit is known for. Plus, he's good with the ladies (another Gambit trait). I'm willing to at least give it a shot. I wonder if he'll end up being one of the Horsemen in XM: Apocalypse?

If he was part of an ensemble cast, fine. Solo? Ehh... pass.

Though, I still think Kitsch got a bad wrap.

I agree. There was absolutely nothing wrong with his performance. It wasn't his fault he was introduced in a bad film.

If I had any say in the matter I'd say he should go on a super SUPER lean diet for this role. Muscle is less important here than litheness

Physically we know Tatum will be up to task. I wonder how his Cajun accent will sound? That will probably be critical for fans and audiences in selling the character. I'm not sure if Tatum has the range, but he can do it.

What does everyone hate about Channing Tatum? I have only ever seen him in This is the End. I plan on watching White House Down and 21 Jump Street tonight.

Is he really that bad?

My problem with Tatum is that he is the same character in every damn film. I can't think of a film I have seen him in that I truly felt like he was the character. I'm willing to give him a chance but damn...
I really wish they would have gotten Kitsch back.

WTF is this?! Taylor Kitsch's Gambit was probably one of the best things about the Wolverine movie. They got it right with him. I don't care about his box office failures afterward because they are irrelevant.

Gambit is a clever, sneaky snake-in-the-grass who knows when to be a good guy. Channing Tatum is an eager golden retriever with a dumb jock vibe.

Horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE casting choice.
