I just read an article on IGN about Channing Tatum being confirmed as Gambit for the upcoming X-men movie.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/05/13/channing-tatum-confirmed-as-gambit

How do you feel about this?

Are you excited? Are you upset?

Personally, I feel like he's a terrible choice for Gambit. He's a good actor, but this isn't a character I can see him playing successfully.

I agree with you. I just don't see. They have what's her name playing Rogue which I was never happy about and now this? And don't get me started on Ben Affleck playing Batman. How don't know how he'll play out in the X-Men movies but I'll still support as a X-Men fan.

I barely know Gambit and Channing Tatum and I don't think that sounds like a good combination... At least he's from Alabama but there's a huge difference between an Alabama accent and a New Orleans accent. I'm just not sure how it'll work out...

i don't see it but he could surprise us. Though, the x-men movies doesn't really do a good job with costumes.

Apparently, he was also raised sometime in New Orleans, but I just don't see them having the same body type.

I can see him pulling it off. That said, I was never a huge Gambit fan. He's okay, but - meh.

Well this is the first time I am hearing this and I already don't want to see the movie because of it. Not saying I hate Channing but come on. Just because he is popular doesn't mean F-it put him in a role we know everyone thinks is badass.

Im sorry, but I do not believe it til I see it.

<.< I seriously dislike Channing Tatum, I don't think he's "sexy". I didn't mind the guy from X-MEN: Wolverine actually, I thought he fit pretty decently. Why they changing all these characters? Makes me mad.

I'm taking a wait and see approach. Days of Future Past is really excellent and I feel like the series has a lot of energy to it right now. They may have seen something in Tatum, at a meeting or audition, that we haven't seen yet.
