Channing Tatum recently attended CinemaCon in Las Vegas to promote Magic Mike XXL where he was also asked about appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse.

MTV caught up with Tatum where they assumed Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse was a done deal. However, Tatum cut them short and stated what he was trying to say was that he wasn't sure if Gambit would be appearing.

"I was about to say I don't think I want to introduce Gambit until you can explain who Gambit really is," Tatum offered.

From Tatum's comments, it doesn't seem as if Gambit not appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse is definitely set (he could always be playing coy), and at this stage in the game, if Gambit's role is still up in the air, more than likely it's not that large of a role as X-Men: Apocalypse is due to start filming any day now.

"X-Men: Apocalypse" has a May 27, 2016 release; the "Gambit" movie is due out October 7, 2016.
