I don't dislike Channing Tatum. The fact that he was campaigning for the role and really wanted it gives me faith in him.

This isn't directed at Xtreme, cause he's given real defined reasons why he has problems with his casting, but Channing Tatum feels like Ann Hathaway to me. In that I always see white people disliking them for very vague reasons, when I sorta feel like they haven't done any more terrible films than other more liked stars...Tatum actually has been on a decent roll lately, compared to Ryan Reynolds when he tried to play Deadpool.

He's like a less charming (or attractive), less racially ambiguous, and less muscle-y version of The Rock...so I don't hate the guy but I do see objections to him as Gambit. Tatum isn't sleezy enough. Gambit has to be charming but bordering on sleezy. While I loved the last Gambit series, it made him too heroic. Gambit has to come off like that one straight friend who ladies initially find very hot but like 84% of them are turned off after his over-cheesed flirting makes them feel slightly uncomfortable. That's why I always felt that Rogue liking him was because she dug how forward he was, even though she couldn't touch him.

Doug Liman is leaving this to direct Justice League Dark.

This door needs to just close. I was never that excited about Tatum Gambit anyway, and it seems like nobody wants to do it. Give us some other solo thing or clear the way for New Mutants/X-Force.

Since this is stuck in Development Hell, why not just put Gambit & Mr. Sinister in the X-Force movie?

Well it isn't very clear. Singer said he would. Mangold said he doesn't know who that is. Possibly Nathaniel Essex is in it but not as "Mr. Sinister?"

Apparently Richard E. Grant isn't playing Mr. Sinister in Logan. He's Dr. Zander Rice, who merely works for Essex Corp.

The shambling zombie that is the Gambit movie lurches forward with Gore Verbinski now in talks to direct, Channing Tatum still onboard

I'm just really hoping this manages to do what Deadpool did. Get dragged through hell only to come out in a blazing fire of glory.

And Gore Verbinski has exited the film.

Fox can't get a break it seems.

Just give up on it, Fox. This has been a painful saga to watch.

If this movie ever gets made this would be a rare film where I'd like a documentary about the struggles of making the movie.

Just introduce him in one of the core group movies. It's not like Gambit really needs much of one. As far as X-Men go, everybody and their mother knows who he is.

That's not the point. They wanted a Gambit film to broaden the genres much like the MCU. DP is comedy, Logan was western, New Mutants is horror, Multiple Man would be a mystery, & Gambit would be a heist movie.

You'll have to settle for Ant-Man.
