Speaking to MTV News, endearing beefcake Channing Tatum offered an update on the long-mooted Gambit movie which could spin-off out of X-Men: Apocalypse.

“We’re finding a writer and sort of beating it out,” explained Tatum.

“I don’t want to give too much away because we don’t know that much right now other than we obviously know who Gambit is. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. We’re obviously going to go to the saving the world superhero movies eventually, but maybe not for the first one.

“We kind of want to introduce this character in a very different way. When you try to do something different, you never really know right off the bat what that is. We’re feeling our way into it. And really just have got to prove that concept of that person.”

If we’re talking about Gambit introductions, this will take some beating:
