Apparently everyone’s favorite Kinetic Cajun is on has lined up his first solo film, but who was chosen to glow purple and wear that fabulous trench coat? None other than Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum. Word is that Tatum has been officially cast as the master thief turned hero and all around Southern charmer, but the real question we have is who is going to be his Rogue?
In the comics, Gambit, or Remy LeBeau, was a New Orleans street urchin turned master thief who eventually joined up with Professor Xavier’s team of heroic outcasts, the X-Men. Gambit tended to chafe when it came to authority, and wasn’t ever really all that keen on being “heroic” but when he met fellow Southerner Rogue, he was hooked. Personally, there really isn’t a Gambit without Rogue, I mean they even made runner up in best super hero couples suited for Romance, so only time will tell if we get to see the current Rogue, Anna Paquin, meet with the X-Men’s answer to Han Solo.
What do you think about a solo Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum?
