Speaking with Latino Review, the actor once again reiterated his interest in Gambit, saying he’s “super-hyped” to play the character. But from his perspective, getting into Gambit’s card-charging skin won’t be an easy feat, especially where dialogue is concerned.
“He’s got a serious Cajun accent,” he said. “I don’t know if you’ve heard a Cajun accent before, but we’re going to have to have subtitles sometimes. He has almost a Jedi mind trick thing, that I want to try and put in — because he speaks Patois, and so I’m going to have to learn Patois. It’s going to be very hard. But we’ll see.”
Previously, Tatum said he wants to pursue a "Gambit" standalone movie before tying the character into the proper "X-Men" films; however, other reports indicate he will factor into "X-Men: Apocalypse," due in theaters on May 27, 2016.
