Simple, I turn the TV off; then the blank screen in front of me does a better acting job of Channing Tatum in anything...ever...




Filmmagician -> RE: "How can anyone resist Channing?" (30/1/2014 4:09:10 PM)

THey CANNOT make C-Tate Gambit. People will revolt!




E.Padilla -> (30/1/2014 4:42:39 PM)

wait what? what happened to Taylor Kitsch? he was an excellent Gambit!!




MrTrick -> no no no no (30/1/2014 4:52:30 PM)

Tatum would be an awful Gambit... whilst not a major character Gambit is extremely popular and should be done right.

I think Jared Leto could do it right, his recent return to acting has won him awards and he has the look.. as well as being Cajun

That Sir is an inspired choice; I applaud you from my work chair!

What studios don't get is that guys hate C-Tate! and comic book nerds hate him more. There are more guys than girls that will see this. Don't pander to women cause they think he's cute. That's two of the main demographics that are going to see a Gambit movie. Ahhhgg. You can't give a huge role like this to C-Tates just cause "he really wants it."
I'm a huge fan. I wanted to write this movie on spec. The perfect person to play him is Josh Holloway. If they make C-Tates Gambit there WILL be a revolt. They'll shun him away like the last 50 shades of grey lead. I gare-on-tee!

Actually what a lot of people don't get is a lot of women don't like him either. That's freaking insulting you assume the only reason women watch comic book movies is to ogle the guys. Equally annoying is this "pandering to women" mentality. Please. One of these days fanboys are going to learn that awesome storylines, dynamic characters and killer effects aren't just for boys. Just because most guys will only pay attention to women in films if they're there to serve a sexual purpose doesn't mean women return the favor. And please tell me the reason men loved Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow or Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique is because they're such gifted actresses (which they are) and never once did they enjoy the sight of their bodies on the big screen. Grow up.

No, actually Filmmagician is right. The only reason for this casting is pandering to women. Also how is it fair that women get to destroy guy's films and stories, but guys don't get to destroy your dumb romantic comedies? Oh and I really don't like Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow or Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique BECAUSE they are only there to be hot, and they are not good actresses. It works both ways.

Taylor Kitsch was just perfect in the role and they shouldn't change it!




Filmmagician -> RE: X-Men Producer Lauren Shuler Donner On A Channing Tatum Gambit Movie (31/1/2014 3:51:49 AM)

I'm not assuming women watch comic book movies to ogle the guys. I never said that. But think about it: WHY cast Channing Tatum? For his vast range of acting chops? Because he's so well known to do a New Orleans accent? Cause he looks so much like Gambit? Nnnnno, because he "really wants to do it" and because of movies like Magic Mike. He used to be a stripper so, yes, women want to ogle him, cause frankly, there's nothing more to him than a body and a stupid face. So they're really not looking for the best actor, are they? They're looking for eye candy, and who's hot right now. He's hot, and it's not the male viewers making him hot.

I obviously realize there are female super hero fans, clearly. But how many? For every 1 there's gotta be 500 male fans. Maybe Marvel wants more women in the seats of their movies? Is casting Channing Tatum the best way to do that? Yeah, maybe. Is it right? No. it's ridiculous, but they need female viewers, and C-Tate will bring them in. So that, my friend, is pandering.

Maybe comic book 'nerds' hate Tatum but general male audiences do not necessarily hate Tatum. He is not as widely accepted as Gosling for example, but people won't stay home when Tatum plays a movie. 21 Jump Street featured Tatum at somewhat his peak, and men still went to see that movie, and don't give me crap about how people went for Jonah Hill, who could never draw an actual audience to the movies.

I don't hate Tatum; never met the guy - sure he is a lovely chap. Just think is a crap actor and shouldn't be cast as anything. If they were to make a film of his life he shouldn't be allowed to be cast as himself. I think he is that bad.

Although that said if he is cast it does mean, as I have mentioned in other posts, that I could then take the lady...and maybe she will do that odd moaning grunt thing she did when Chris Hemsworth took his top off in Thor 2 again...maybe...[sm=51.gif]

What utter bollocks spouted in this thread so far.

I'm a guy. I love comic books. And I would love to see Channing Tatum get this role.

He's an awesome actor who has no problems with sending himself up. Magic Mike proves he can act (and if you think all he does in that film is strip you obviously have never seen it). Gosling is just dull and boring to watch. Tatum is the man!

The site does have rules on sexism - and before you comment on my gender, I'd add I've been a comics reader longer than you've been alive. X Men isn't for 'guys' - the films aren't for 'guys' the comics have NEVER been marketed for 'guys'. It's a team comic - always has been. Even in the first days with the original tedious love triangle, the only female member was a match for most of the rest of the team. Which, I'm sorry to make clear to you, doesn't matter - what did was the quality of writing/storytelling. That's all that's ever mattered. As for Magic Mike (and 21 Jump St) it's the first time many considered Tatum could act, myself included. Which is more than Kitsch has managed in his film work.

And you and Filmmagician are missing a pretty obvious point - Gambit is young, male and going to be played by a young, male actor, a species not known for physical hideousness. So any comment you make on eye-candy will apply to anyone in the role. So your sole actual argument is you don't like Tatum. Good for you.

I know very little with regards to Gambit other than he was possibly one of the coolest looking characters in the X-Men cartoon.

Sooo,is he a interesting enough character to carry a film on his own?

Regarding sexism for suggesting women watch superhero movies to ogle the guys, how is that sexist? Does anyone out there actually think that Scarlett Johannson was cast as Black Widow for her acting ability? Shes there for guys to ogle just as Tatum is being cast due to his appeal to the ladies.
