Remember when Friday Night Lights star, Taylor Kitsch played the card-throwing, cajun mutant? Well Fox certainly hopes you don't. In keeping with the trend to make every super hero franchise a gigantic multi-media tentpole, the studio behind The X-Men and Fantastic Four are starting their drive to introduce more and more mutants to spin-off solo films.

Their first step: nailing down Channing Tatum to play Gambit and based on his interview at the MTV Movie Awards, they're getting closer to striking a deal. (See minute 4:25).

The Instagram account revealed that Boyd Holbrook will play Donald Pierce in Wolverine 3; Pierce was a notoriously formidable cyborg villain in the MCU, who was a member of the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle. After Pierce is beaten by the X Men he goes on to lead the cyborg group, The Reavers.



Pierce might be one of two badass villains for this film though, as we've previously confirmed that Richard E. Grant is playing a mad scientist who might be potentially be Mister Sinister. Logan's being directed by James Mangold who directed The Wolverine, and it stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant as Caliban, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal.

We've known for a while that Fox has been courting Channing Tatum to star as Gambit in their ever-growing X-Men franchise, and now it's confirmed. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner had this to say at Monday Night's Days of Future Past premiere:



And now, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that audiences ill first see the Magic Mike star flinging explosive cards, in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. Soon after, audiences will be treated to a Gambit stand-alone film which is still in the very early stages of development.

Personally I feel that seeing the iconic 90's X-Man rubbing elbows with young Magneto and Professor X will be a little weird, but he's the type of character that will play both sides in the mutant debate. Where do you think Gambit will fit in?
