Channing Tatum Still Calls Marvel Studios to Make ‘Gambit’

There were quite a few projects that ended up on the cutting groom floor due to the Fox merger with Disney. While there’s always the shame about losing out on what could’ve been, there are also some projects that already seemed a bit doomed from the get-go. New Mutants managed to survive the ordeal and there was also a Channing Tatum-led project that was just about to get the camera rolling when the merger happened.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Tatum got a chance to reflect on the project that never got a chance to get made, and he believes that they didn’t like “the tone of the movie” at the time. Not just that but he also holds hope they might want to make it after all.

It got swallowed up into Disney by way of Marvel when they bought Fox…and ultimately I just think that the tone of the movie we wanted to make was very far from what they wanted to do—or, you know, maybe they’re waiting to see how they do it with us or without us.

He also highlights that while he’s trying to “spiritually, emotionally” let go of the project, he and his team still call Marvel Studios “every once in a while” to potentially get the project going.

We call every once in a while, but we’ve got to spiritually, emotionally, kind of mentally let it go.

It seems very unlikely that Tatum will get the chance to bring this project to life, but there would be some fun in having him at least play the role in an upcoming multiverse storyline. Mutants aren’t likely to have a major franchise in the Multiverse Saga outside of Deadpool 3, but there’s a good chance they could give him a cameo in that film or even in Avengers: Secret Wars later down the line.
