Wait — what? Like, I didn’t even find myself excited for Channing Tatum as Gambit (despite enjoying him as an actor). And now news hits that he is leaving, and I’m…sad? What’s going on in this world. With this film. Which had already debuted Tatum at ComicCon. With my heart. Which had set itself (or so I thought) on “Tatum ain’t my Gambit” rather definitively.
Weird coupling, but I can dig it. Rupert Wyatt is the director of the surprisingly good Rise of the Planet Apes. And now he’s directing Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie. Weird couplings all around, when it comes to this movie. But I ain’t opposed.
