Channing Tatum will play Gambit in future X-Men movies.

The casting was confirmed by producer Lauren Shuler Donner at an X-Men: Days of Future Past event on Monday (see below).

Tatum has been discussed for the role for months, but it’s now official.

It’s not clear at this point whether Gambit will have his own stand-alone movie, or debut in X-Men: Apocalypse (planned for 2016), or elsewhere.
