Looks like 22 Jump Street star Channing Tatum is pretty excited about playing Gambit in the upcoming X-Men flick.
"I would say we're going to try to do something a little bit different," says Tatum, of the raging Cajun.
"I don't know how to exactly explain it just yet, but he's a 'character' character. He's got a serious Cajun accent. I don't know if you've heard a Cajun accent but it's – I mean, we're going to have to have subtitles sometimes.
"He has almost a Jedi mind trick thing that I want to try put in where he speaks patois and so I'm going to have to learn patois [dialect] which is going to be hard. But, we'll see," he added.
Tatum definitely seems to be taking the role seriously. Even though a solo film on Gambit has not been announced as yet, fans are really looking forward to the edgy mutant in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).
A mutant and part of the X-Men, Gambit can mentally create, control and manipulate pure kinetic energy to his whims and fancies. He is also incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat, and the use of a bō.
Gambit's first live action appearance was in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Reportedly, Tatum has also been hinting at the possibility of a solo movie to reintroduce the character.
X-Men: Apocalypse, will open in the UK on 19 May 2016.
