It was already speculated that the kinetically charged mutant Gambit will be making an appearance in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, but actor Channing Tatum has mentioned the possibility of a solo movie that will relaunch the character for the new generation.
“We’ve talked about it being a standalone, first,” says Tatum, “and actually trying to change the ‘hero, superhero movie.’ Because Gambit is not your typical hero.”
“He’s a thief,” he continues. “He walks on the grey. I’m hoping we can change it a little bit, and then ultimately feather into the other ones.”
Tatum admitted that it’s just speculation at this point, stating that “obviously, there’s nothing written… there’s only conversations and dreams, really, right now.”
