Remember when the rumors and reports said Channing Tatum was interested in playing Gambit? There were some immediate reactions against the idea. As the rumor became fact, it seemed people started warming up to the idea of Tatum playing the Cajun X-Man. Tatum even appeared at San Diego Comic-Con with other cast members in the X-Men Movie Universe. A new report says Tatum's chance at being Gambit may be coming to an end.

According to The Wrap, a source has informed them the deal is in "jeopardy" as Tatum is planning on leaving the production. It's not clear what the problem is and a source says Tatum's reps are still in active discussions but apparently "something is up." Director Rupert Wyatt may soon be on the search for a new lead in order to make the October 7, 2016 release date.

Gambit was a project Tatum was enthusiastic about. Tatum and his producing partner, Reid Carolin, have been planning on Tatum's directorial debut soon and he is set to star in 23 Jump Street so these could be factors coming into play. We'll have to wait for an official announcement for further information.

With a $150,000,000 budget and losing their star leading man leaving the project I would be worried for this movie.

Meh. Its not good news, or bad news either. He could have been a good Gambit, but I never thought he was PERFECT for the role. He should come on over to DC and be Guy Gardner! I think he would be a better Guy than Gambit.

Gambit is one of my favorites but I can't understand the need for a solo movie, the character can't even keep a solo issue going for very long.

With good reason, even if people don't like Tatum, losing the lead so close to the release date since I thought the movie was supposed to be scheduled for next year, is pretty bad

Why is Gambit getting a solo anyway?

Probaly just because Tatum showed interest in portraying the character.

So what now?

Gambit is one of my favorites as well and i definitely can see the "need" for a solo movie - The more material with Gambit the better. I find this news unfortunate.. i was completely for Tatum having the job, hope the problems get worked out.

The best guess I have is "90s nostalgia".

Probably because of his longstanding in-depth continuity with Marvel Comic and his wide range of rogues.

@kidchipotle: That statement would hold true if characters like Aquaman and Cyborg weren't getting their own films. I'm not a Gambit fan by any means nor do I care if he gets a film. But if Aqualame and Cybore can get films so can Gambit.

@darkdetective27: They let him produce it and gave him all the creative power in that movie with a $14m budget.. having an income of 100m is not bad. I guess fox didnt let him handle the full creative control for Gambit.

@darkdetective27: They still earn $.. he might drop out because of creative control and differences.. there is always Marvel and DC if he wants to be on another CBM.. not a total loss. :)

@lone_wolf_and_cub: A movie about a hero in the ocean and Atlantis, a movie about intense robotic action (new age of films), and a movie about a man and his cards. Don't compare the first two to the last

@phocracker: When has anyone ever cared about Cyborg? Who are his villains? When has he held his own series for any significant time? When has Aquaman not been a laughing stock? How many people even know any of his villains? Give me a break if they can get movies so can Gambit. Don't act like either Aquaman or Cyborg have any sort of major popularity. At least Gambit has ties to one of the biggest and most popular teams in comics. The Xmen, you may have heard of them right? Being tied to the Xmen>>>>>>>>>>>>being Aquaman or Cyborg. Checkmate son.

@vinomonster: You know I thought about it a little more and he might work really well as Shazam. He has the build and his face kind of looks like he did in the old Captain Marvel comics. I might be crazy but I think it could work. WB get working on it.
