Any geeks out there that are fans of Gambit? Hell yeah! Bryan Singer revealed in a recent interview with Cine Premiere that Gambit and Nightcrawler might be included in his upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse” flick.

The helmer said:

“I’m considering Gambit and potentially a young Nightcrawler for Apocalypse,”

“[We were] going to have Nightcrawler [in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘] and even wrote a scene, but I felt that we were forcing too many mutants in known history.”

Last year September we reported that Hollywood heart-throb Channing Tatum Would Love to Play Gambit In ‘X-Men’. It is unclear if Tatum will be considered for the role, but “X-Men” producer Lauren Shuler Donner is very excited to see the actor portray the card throwing thief from New Orleans.

She said in an interview:

“I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum. That doesn’t have to be a great big movie. It’s a thief in New Orleans, it’s a whole different story. He’s on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He’s such a sweetheart,”

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is set to be released on May 23 this year. ” X-Men: Apocalypse” will follow on May 27, 2016. “Wolverine 3” is scheduled to hit theatres on March 3, 2017.
