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.

Also did a bit of a Gambit accent while saying hello to the crowd.  Link you say? Of course!

Thanks AnimatedPhil.  There is some running joke about not being the guy wearing the shirt of  .... the clip is for a band.  But it applies to anything.

Of course I'm teasing but it was fun seeing Tatum in a Gambit shirt.

English is not my native language so I would never understand Tatum words when he was doing his accent. But sometimes it was hard for me to undestand Gambit from XTAS too)

Gambit for XTAS - was easier to understand when not referencing himself in third person.  And I think Potter over acted with accent as well.  Yeah, I know, blasphemy.  

And even though English isn't your primary language there are those whose language it is and couldn't understand him.  Any number of things, the register of voice too low, the recording too low, using poor wording to get the idea across.  

Not sure how many retakes was available in the 90's either.  The 90's rejuvenated the animated cartoon.  In the 80's it was done as cheaply as possible and its noticeable.  More flat art as opposed to moving art.

I understand Tatum fine when he is doing interviews so I hope that in movie without translation I will understand his accent too)

IMO - the accent should be light.  However, with the film being set in New Orleans - Tatum has to do the accent well enough to be understood and not sound like he's got marbles in his mouth.  It's probably why he's looking so hard for a person to coach him.  He wants it right for the area and I appreciate that as long as all of us can understand him, it will be fine.

hes going too southern hillbilly or Deliverance with it instead of French Cajun, in the comics he keeps getting mistaken for French or he used to because of his accent

The thing about the accent is that does he want to sound like the comics/TAS, or does he want to be accurate? Someone with a Cajun accent isn't going to be mistaken for European French. He shouldn't have a heavy Cajun accent--he grew up in New Orleans, which has its own accent.

I hate the headsock, but don't mind the XXM look.

CT's accent shouldn't overshadow his performance.

What's funny is.  I never heard a true cajun accent until I was in college, so I went almost 20 years without knowing and thinking that XTAS Gambit was how all cajuns spoke.  lol.

But I think that if he keeps a good southern twang with a mix of french in there, it will be good for a mass audience.  As long as it stays consistent throughout.

But I do agree that it shouldn't overshadow his performance.  I'm excited for each little step we get. 

I'm thinking costume reveal has to be the next step.

Well with 2 and half months to go until shooting I think concept art is gonna start creeping up from somewhere pretty soon, cause they may already have their cast figured out and we wont know more until some photos from the shoot shows up
Looking for my forever Gambit rper, message me :)
