FAN ART: Mon Ami! Channing Tatum As GAMBIT From X-MEN
Ever since news of 22 Jump Street star Channing Tatum would be playing the role of Gambit, a.k.a. Remy LeBeau, in X-Men: Apocalypse and then given his own solo spin-off film, people have been wondering what Channing might look like as the Cajun mutant.
The story behind Channing Tatum ("Jupiter Ascending") getting the role of Gambit in 20th Century Fox's X-Men cinematic universe is truly remarkable. Think about it, how many times have you seen an actor express interest in a superhero role and actually get that role? This is the only time I can recall.
I'm sure most of you have been daydreaming about what Magic Mike might look like as card-throwing mutant when X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner made the casting official in May. Put those daydreams away and enjoy this illustration that Deviant Art member, Metalblackfae, created of Channing as Gambit. What do you think of it?
Gambit has the mutant ability to tap into the potential energy contained within an object and transform it into kinetic energy upon touching it. When Gambit thus charges an object and throws it at a target, the object releases this energy explosively on impact. Gambit is unable to use this power to charge living objects. / As Death: He can control deadly gas.
Gambit also possesses a hypnotic charm that allows him to exert a subtle influence over any sentient mind. This power allows Gambit to compel others to believe what he says and agree with anything he suggests. More powerful minds have proven immune to Gambit's charm. - Marvel Wiki
