When Channing Tatum was confirmed for the role of Gambit earlier this month, the word was that his version of the character would make his debut in 2016′s X-Men: Apocalypse. But that may not be the case after all if Tatum has his way.
In a recent interview, Tatum revealed that there have been conversations about introducing his Gambit in a standalone movie — one that’ll “change the superhero movie,” no less. Hit the jump to read his comments.

It is standard procedure for a comic book movie to end with a post-credits scene that points toward the next film to come. Once the full credits roll has gone by at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past, there’s a big one. But the scene doesn’t feature anyone that casual audiences are likely to recognize, and it isn’t set in a location that is familiar to the X-Men films. So what’s it all about? We’ve got the Days of Future Past post-credits scene explained below. (Consequently, full spoilers for Days of Future Past are after the break.)

From the beginning, we’ve heard that X-Men: Apocalypse would be all about the First Class cast. But apparently, the filmmakers are still saving some room for the original X-Men.
In a new interview, writer Simon Kinberg confirmed that the classic cast would “certainly” be involved, albeit in supporting roles. Previously, only Hugh Jackman was expected to return. Hit the jump to read Kinberg’s comments.

Wolverine is at the center of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and we know there will be a third solo Wolverine film. But with Hugh Jackman aging just like everyone else, doing that hardcore Wolverine workout isn’t getting any easier. Getting in shape to play the character is serious work, and isn’t something Jackman can do forever.
So one solution seems obvious, especially if the character will factor in to both X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016, and Wolverine 3 in 2017. Shoot the movies back to back, so Jackman can get in shape once, hold it for the duration of the two films, and then relax a bit. That’s what Jackman and the producers want to do; now we’ll see if it can happen. Read More »
Until X-Men: Days of Future Past opens, we won’t know who survives and what shape they’re in. But there’s no question that Fox will be making more X-Men movies to follow it, starting with X-Men: Apocalypse. But what about the classic cast — is this year’s film their swan song, with the exception of Hugh Jackman? That’s seemed likely, given past statements from Singer such as “[Apocalypse will] introduce familiar characters in a younger time,” and the general sense that Apocalypse is a sequel to First Class.
Simon Kinberg is writing both films, and at WonderCon this past weekend he explained a few things about the intersection of X-Men: Apocalypse and the “classic cast” led by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. That is, there probably won’t be any.

Channing Tatum has made no secret of the fact he’d love to play Gambit in the X-Men movies. The card-throwing, womanizing Cajun has long been a fan favorite, but so far has only been seen on screen once, briefly, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now, with Bryan Singer teasing he’d love to bring Gambit into the next X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse, Tatum has revealed the possibility has taken another step forward toward reality. He’s met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about possibly playing the role and is already working on an accent. Read More »

X-Men: Days of Future Past doesn’t open for another few weeks, and its sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, isn’t coming for another two years. Nevertheless, inquiring minds already want to know what Bryan Singer has planned for us in 2016, and the director is more than happy to deliver.

X-Men Apocalypse is more than just that other 2016 Marvel superhero movie. The Fox sequel to X-Men: First Class and this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has been quietly building momentum while DC and Marvel prepare for battle with their big films Batman vs. Superman and Captain America 3. X-Men: Apocalypse comes out a few weeks after those two, on May 27, 2016. Bryan Singer, Dan Harris, Michael Dougherty and Simon Kinberg are all currently working on breaking down the story, which will probably deal with the super-evil mutant of the title.
In a new interview, Singer revealed a few more details on the film, including the fact it’ll be an Eighties period piece, and the logical continuation of the Seventies look of Days of Future Past, and that it will have “will more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon.” Read the quotes below.
