Channing Tatum took part in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) to promote his new movie Magic Mike XXL and during it he answered questions pertaining to his upcoming Gambit solo film and X-Men: Apocalypse.
When asked about Gambit, he started things off by saying how happy he was that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt had come on board. "We finally found someone that I really do believe wants to make Gambit," Tatum said. "it will be the second standalone character. And i just really think because Gambit is not the most popular or the biggest hero, I think there's a really unique opportunity. Marvel's done a lot of great movies that have made a ridiculous amount of money, and it's always good to figure how to change the form."
Most people still think the Cajun, card-tossing mutant will make a cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse despite Tatum repeatedly denying it. He was asked once again if Gambit will appear in it. "No ma'am, or sir. I definitely will not," Tatum replied.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27, 2016 and Gambit comes out October 7, 2016.
