Rumor was that it was some WWE guy in X3.

Tatum auditioned for Gambit in X-men 3 but because of the script change they took Gambit out.

Tatum then was approached for Gambit again in X-men Origins Wolverine but was unable to do so because he was tied to G.I.Joe contract and couldn't get out.

3rd time lucky for Tatum. I feel like this guy was meant to play Gambit and I can't wait to see his take on him.

I think the right beat for a Gambit film would be a generally fun film with a dark undertone as that is ultimately how I view the character.  On the surface Gambit is seemingly a care free rogue in the vein of say a Jack Sparrow but underneath it all is the dark secret he is hiding.  I would say being able to balance the two is what will make or break the film IMO.

Cassandra? do you mean Candra

Yes, my bad, Candra.

Yes. I approve this message.

I think the film should definitely not be too dark. Gambit is a fun loving, funny, free spirit, and making this film too dark would probably make it too heavy. Gambit has no problems with making fun of himself and can cover up many screw ups with comic relief.

The headsock is still a big no-no for me. It's just... I don't know... Wrong!

No problem with the image.  Funny part is ... years ago those colors were the splash page for this site.  I'm liking the image.  It's definitely a back of a card.   ;)
If we can get a better resolution of the logo, I could make a nice new splash page :) It's a cool logo.

Until more promotional material comes out, it make take a short bit to get a better resolution of that logo.  :)  I'll keep looking.

Am I the only one who loves the head sock?  ;D I think it's great on him.

I think the head sock is just old.  And after reading the Asmus/Mann Gambit solo and Gambit doing his thing without the head sock.  It's just preferred now.  While its a classic look for him to have the head sock.  An updated look is most welcome.

And he didn't wear one in ANXF either and I thought he looked great.  Again the art by CdG really made Gambit look great without the head sock.

I don't mind the head sock. I think Mann drew it in that one issue wonderfully. It looks alright when his hair doesn't look stiff.

I hope head sock will have at least little cameo.

I think the one he had in X-Treme X-Men would translate into film well. The one that just covers the back of his head but doesn't cover his forehead.

A little cameo is fine with me :)

That's a look I dig... But I'm also a fan of the long hair. (I have thing for long-ish hair)

I would be good with the XXM version of the head piece.  

Channing Tatum is a nice guy.  He helped Stan Lee after the picture was taken.
