We got our first taste of what's in store for the next 'X-Men' film, 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' in the post-credits scene for 'Days of Future Past,' which previewed the all-powerful villain in his early years in ancient Egypt. With a release date set for May 2016, director Bryan Singer and his writing team have been putting together the script, and while little is known about the plot, an Instagrammed photo of the current treatment reveals that The Four Horsemen will indeed have a part to play.

We've been talking about Channing Tatum starring as Gambit, the popular X-Men character, for years and years now. Tatum even auditioned for the part in 'X-Men: The Last Stand' before the character was eventually cut from the film. But, after all that talk, it's finally confirmed: Channing Tatum will star as Gambit in an upcoming 'X-Men' spinoff movie.
Gambit has been a fan favorite 'X-Men' character ever since his first full appearance in "Uncanny X-Men #266" back in 1990. You would think that would lead to fast track to the big screen, but Gambit's road to cinematic stardom has been shaky at best. The character made a brief appearance in the horrible 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (played by Taylor Kitsch), but has since not been re-introduced to movie audiences. That could all change as Channing Tatum admits he's met with the 'X-Men' producers about the part.
The announcement of 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' a film that would undoubtedly see one of the most famous villains of the 'X-Men' universe rise to the big screen, came as a delight to fans of these Marvel characters, even with director Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' waiting to be released. We still have a little over a month left to see the sequel to 'First Class,' but 'Apocalypse' is already looking to up the ante.
There once was a time when many X-Men spinoffs were proposed - including Magneto, Gambit and Deadpool films - but none actually happened. With a new regime at Fox, the 'X-Men' producers want to revisit the idea of mutant spinoffs and they have a new character in their sights: Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique.
