Channing Tatum Just Slyly Revealed The Release Date For ‘Gambit’ On Twitter

While we don’t have any clue what it’s going to be called, we do know that Channing Tatum was the man picked to replace Taylor Kitsch as Gambit in Fox’s X-Men franchise. Not that Kitsch did a terrible job in the mostly-reviled X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it was just time for Fox and producer Lauren Shuler Donner to take the character in another direction, especially with the success of the last two X-Men films. Because his father is sort of from Louisiana, the man we lovingly call C-Tates believed that he was right for the job, and Donner, a very wise and perceptive producer, agreed because the actor basically prints his own money right now.

Now we can add a release date to the list of things we know about Tatum’s Gambit spin-off, because the hardest twerkin’ playboy in $how Bizna$$$ty Tweeted out this oh-so-cryptic message earlier this evening…

Now some more astute people might argue that the release date was revealed earlier today, as was The Fantastic Four 2, which moves from July 14, 2017 to June 2, 2017, but I’m going to let C-Tates have this one. Now he just needs to get to work on his card throwing.
