Nothing is confirmed yet, but with this news spreading like wildfire, it seems like it is true.
Channing Tatum will no longer be Gambit.
It is unclear exactly what went wrong. Actresses were just being tested with the leading man. It is also unclear whether Tatum will still be producing the film.
This news seems really surprising. Tatum has championed this film similarly to what Ryan Reynolds did for Deadpool. Tatum planned on producing and acting in the picture. He has been talking about it on the press circuit. He even went to SDCC. I just don’t understand.
Who caused this? WHO CAN I BLAME FOR CHANNING?!
