Movement has been slow on the Channing Tatum-fronted Gambit solo movie that’s set to spin-off from (or into, or have nothing to do with) the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, but the big man took to Twitter to confirm a release date:
How do you say October 7, 2016 in Cajun?
— Channing Tatum (@channingtatum) January 6, 2015
Consider it locked in!
The movie is being written by Josh Zetumer, a man with the dubious cred of having written the lukewarm RoboCop reboot and there’s no director as of yet.
Gambit is in cinemas 7 October 2016 while X-Men: Apocalypse is in cinemas on 27 May 2016. You can pre-order X-Men: Days Of Future Past on Blu-ray for £15 at Amazon.co.uk and read about the comics that inspired the film with the100 All-Time Greatest Comics Bookazine.
