In a week that's seen Bryan Cranston (Godzilla, Breaking Bad) confirming that he was never approached about the role of Lex Luthor for Batman vs. Superman, director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder have spoken about leaks, with Deborah stating that: "Things get leaked so often these days, it's a shame because even casing announcements, or whatever, you're in the middle of a process and sometimes they're so off base -- and then it gets picked up by multiple »

Could Hugh Jackman be done with his iconic Wolverine character after 14 years and 7 different movies? During IGN's visit to the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which hits theaters May 23, the actor revealed that it's "inevitable" another actor will eventually take over as Logan, though it isn't clear when this transition to a new Wolverine will take place, since producer Lauren Shuler Donner made it clear that she wants to keep working with the actor for as long as possible.
While he has a much bigger role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, where he is sent back to the past to prevent a war that could alter their future, Hugh Jackman only had a cameo appearance in X-Men: First Class, which is set in the 1960s. Since Wolverine doesn't exactly age, due to his healing abilities, it made sense to use him instead of another actor portraying Logan. »
As we wrap our coverage of X-men: Days Of Future Past from last summer’s set visit in Montreal, we save one of the best and most informative interviews for last. Lauren Shuler Donner has built as successful career and reputation for producing some of Hollywood’s top grossing flicks, including two of my favorite classics Pretty In Pink and St. Elmo’S Fire. Although her name has been attached to to a whole slew of other hits, Shuler-Donner hit the jackpot after attaching her herself to the X-men franchise, which have grossed over 3 billions worldwide to date.
In our sit-down interview with the knowledgable and creative mega-producer, she enthusiastically talked about her involvement with all seven X-men films, the inception of First Class and filming its sequel, filiming in 3D, casting Peter Dinklage, working with Hugh Jackman aka Wolverine, working with Bryan Singer again, what’s next for Fox and much more. »

Director Bryan Singer has unveiled a new trailer (kind of) for the upcoming superhero pic X-Men: Days of Future Past. There’s a caveat in that the trailer is only seven seconds long, but it does offer quick glimpses of most of the future-set mutants from the film, including Colossus, Warpath, and more. For those unaware, the story finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer, and if you missed any of Steve’s extensive set visit coverage, click here. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, and Patrick Stewart. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd. »

Lauren Shuler Donner has been producing X-Men movies since the first one back in 2000, so if you have questions about the franchise and where it's going, who better to ask? I had the opportunity to do so last year when Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past was shooting in Montreal. 20th Century Fox invited a small group of reporters to visit the set to talk with the filmmakers and cast. During a break in filming, we landed an extended interview with Donner. She talked about her history with the franchise, how they decided where to go with the sequel, casting the actors, future X-Men movies, her thoughts on 3D, the tone of Days of Future Past, easter eggs, the Sentinels, her thoughts on how many superhero movies can be released per year, the Deadpool movie, and so much more. It's a great interview so hit the jump to check it out. »

Last year Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) expressed his interest in taking on the role of Gambit in a potential X-Men movie, with producer Lauren Shuler Donner subsequently stating that she's "dying" to make it happen. Of course, we've already seen the Cajun card-thrower on the screen before, with Taylor Kitsch portraying the character alongside Hugh Jackman's Logan in the forgettable X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Kitsch has now responded to the Tatum casting talk during a chat with the Chicago Tribune.
"I would under the right circumstances,” said Kitsch when asked if he'd be up for a return as Gambit. “But if [Tatum] does it, good on him. He’ll kill it. It’s such a cool character. Whoever plays him will be a lucky guy. It is what is it, I’m not going to be like ‘Oh my God, why don’t I get to play him? »

A while back, Magic Mike actor Channing Tatum threw his hat in the ring to take over the role of Gambit from Taylor Kitsch should the card-flinging mutant ever grace the screen again. Then more recently, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner said that she'd love to get a Gambit movie up and running with Tatum in the title role. But what if the opportunity arose for Kitsch to play the character again? “I would under the right circumstances,” the actor told the Chicago Tribune while promoting Lone Survivor Foundation’s Concert for a Cause. “But if (Tatum) does it, good on him. He’ll kill it. It’s such a cool character. Whoever plays him will be a lucky guy. It is what is it, I’m not going to be like ‘Oh my God, why don’t I get to play him?’ If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. »

So, Henry Cavill in Michigan and production reportedly set to get underway, we've finally found out who'll be playing Kal-El's nemesis Lex Luthor in Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman.

Back in September, Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) spoke about his desire to portray the X-Men's Cajun card-thrower Gambit on the big screen (a role previously filled by Taylor Kitsch in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and now veteran X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has spoken briefly about the possibility, stating that she's "dying" to make it a reality.
"I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum," Shuler Donner told Empire Online. "That doesn't have to be a great big movie. It's a thief in New Orleans, it's a whole different story. He's on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He's such a sweetheart."

Channing Tatum has played a wide variety of roles in recent years, from a male stripper in "Magic Mike" to a human-wolf hybrid in the upcoming "Jupiter Ascending." Could he soon be adding "super hero" to that eclectic list? According to one "X-Men" producer, yes.
In an interview with Empire magazine promoting "X-Men: Days of Future Past," producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that Tatum is interested in playing one of the iconic mutants in his own spin-off film -- he just needs to make a deal.
"I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum," Shuler Donner told Empire. "That doesn't have to be a great big movie. It's a thief in New Orleans, it's a whole different story. He's on board, and I have to get the studio on board."
Considering how hot Tatum's career has been lately, him headlining his own superhero film certainly seems like a no-brainer. »

Back in 2009, Channing Tatum was expressing interest to play Thor or Captain America in upcoming Marvel films. According to him, the closest he ever came to playing a superhero was when Brett Ratner was casting "X-Men: The Last Stand" and wanted Tatum to play Gambit, Tatum's favorite character. Gambit, however, was dropped at the last minute. Four years later in 2013, Tatum was still talking about playing Gambit. "I would like to play Gambit. Gambit's my favorite," said the actor. "I'm from New Orleans, around that area. My dad's from New Orleans, and I like to do a Cajun accent. I could do it for real. No knock on Taylor Kitsch, though, cause I actually like his Gambit, but I've always lived around Cajun people." Now comes word that Tatum may actually get his wish, because "X-Men: producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that a Gambit movie may become reality. "I'm dying »

Speaking with Empire, Donner says: "I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum. That doesn't have to be a great big movie. It's a thief in New Orleans, it's a whole different story.

Earlier this week Empire unveiled a boatload of character images from X-Men: Days of Future Past for its very special March issue of the magazine*. But the British outlet didn't just get the exclusive on a bunch of images from the movie, it has also apparently filled the issue with plenty of X-Men-related features, including an interview with Lauren Shuler Donner, who has been a producer on every single X-Men film since Bryan Singer's original, and had some interesting things to say about a potential Gambit movie. Donner told the magazine: "I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum. That doesn't have to be a great big movie. It's a thief in New Orleans, it's a whole different story. He's on board, and I have to get the studio on...

Word is buzzing today that 'X-Men' producer Lauren Shuler Donner would love to get Channing Tatum to play Gambit in a Wolverine-esque origin story. If you think this sounds like the best course of action, click away now. We'll wait. … This is a terrible idea. "Mon Dieu," as Gambit would say. Yes, Tatum has been angling for the role since at least last year. But Shuler and Tatum are really confused over the point of Gambit in Marvel lore. The crux of problem? Channing Tatum is good at playing a man's man. Or a meathead. Or a jock with a »

Getting his big-screen debut in X-Men: Origins – Wolverine, there’s long been talk of Gambit getting his own stand-alone movie.
Now it looks like that long hoped-for film might be closer to reality than we’d previously realised.
Speaking to Empire in their latest issue, which has a pretty strong focus on the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, the franchise’s long-time producer Lauren Shuler Donner has spoken of her desire to cast Channing Tatum in the role.
“I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum,” Shuler Donner reveals. “That doesn’t have to be a great big movie. It’s a thief in New Orleans, it’s a whole different story. He’s on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He’s such a sweetheart.”
Tatum has spoken many times of his love of the franchise, »

Back in the halcyon days of yore, there were tentative plans to make a whole bunch of X-Men Origins films. Unfortunately, 20th Century Fox started it all off with the risible X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film busted and we all moved on to the next Wolverine film. It’s a shame too, because there are more X-Men than just the one played by Hugh Jackman. Characters such as Gambit, the wise-cracking New Orleans gambler and thief, made a brief appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and then was promptly forgotten by the X-Men universe.
There are a few in the business who have not forgotten about Gambit, however, and one of them is Lauren Shuler Donner, longtime producer of the X-Men franchise. She wants to make a standalone Gambit film with Channing Tatum in the lead role; she only has to convince the studio that it’s a good idea. Here »
