Wolverine, Gambit & Synopsis Revealed For X-Men: Apocalypse?
The info may not be 100% accurate as it comes from a reported casting call website, but it's possible a plot synopsis as well as the involvement of Wolverine and Gambit may be confirmed for X-Men: Apocalypse.
There has been no confirmation Hugh Jackman will be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse - the actor only recently stated he is done with Wolverine following the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine.
Regarding Channing Tatum and Gambit, Tatum seemed reluctant to join the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse as he recently said he didn't want the character to be introduced this way.
Of course, at the same time, everything could be a done deal, and we'll see both actors in the movie.
