During an interview with Total Film to promote his new movie, White House Down, Channing Tatum was asked whether he would be down to join in on the superhero fun. He said that he would and starts to mention that he would like to play Gambit.

“I really haven’t had many superhero movies. There are a lot of superheroes out there, so yeah. I would like to play Gambit. Gambit’s my favorite. I’m from New Orleans and around that area,” Tatum said. “I like to do a Cajun accent. I can do it for reals. No knocking on Taylor Kitsch, because I actually liked his Gambit, but I always live in and around Cajun people. I would have liked to see Gambit as a women-loving, cigarette-smoking drinker. He was the punk rock of all the superheroes.”

So what do you guys think of Channing Tatum as Gambit? Do you think he can pull it off?
