Donner has announced that Tatum will be Gambit in a future movie. Donner said that Tatum is a rogue, rascal, and just like Remy LeBeau. She also chose him because he can handle the action and is a southerner.
Tatum says that Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. “I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him.”
