    I hate the thought of Channing Tatum playing Gambit. Gambit was my absolute favorite X-men, and Tatum is completely type – cast and acts exactly the same in every movie. Taylor has a sexiness about him that Channing can never even possibly begin to harness and completely fit the role of Remy to a pinpoint!

    Horrible idea Tatum was a horrible choice they should of kept Taylor. Hopefully I’m wrong Gambit was my favorite character. When are we going to get a Bishop movie

    I shudder to think what it would sound like if Tatum attempts the Cajun accent. Terrible casting. I don’t think they got the character quite right in “X-men Origins: Wolverine,” but Kitsch definitely had the look and a bit of the attitude. I hope something happens to stop this movie from ever being released. I’m a huge Gambit fan and would hate to see his movie join the ranks of “Catwoman,” “Elektra,” and “Batman & Robin” in terms of bad comic book movies.

    I look at it like this….Taylor did a Great job playing Gambit and I know Channing Tatum will deliver. Both men are Great choices to play Gambit. Let’s just Trust Bryan singer. He hasn’t let us down yet. He’s already delivered us Deadpool, Blob, 2 good deliveries of Saber Tooth and one good Gambit. So keep faith that and hope he’ll bring us another successful Gambit.

    I am a big fan of Marvel especially the X-Men character’s and i didn’t think Taylor did a good job but that’s what i think. I would like to see Channing Tatum play the role of Gambit it will suit him and gambit is one of my favorite character’s along with Wolverine.
