You may have just drooled over those recent Matt Bomer shirtless pictures, but come July, you'll get to see him take it off - take it all off yet again - in the sequel Magic Mike Xxl. I visited the set last year with a few other reporters, and when we chatted with Bomer, we made sure to find out if his character, Ken, would be talking this time around - you know, more than one line. The sexy star opened up about what else we'll learn about his character, as well as the unlikely movie he compares this one too. Check out Bomer's interview, then find out what Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello had to say on the set. Popsugar: Considering your character, Ken, doesn't have many lines in the first Magic Mike, how much more will we hear you speak this time? Matt Bomer: Well, I mean, »
Joe Manganiello is getting wet and wild in the pages of Details! The actor is featured in the magazine's June/July issue, posing in a wet shirt. Luckily, Manganiello has no objections to being objectified for his good looks. "Why would I? I don't think men care why women like them, as long as they do. That's the point of the nerd in high school who makes it big," the Pennsylvania-raised actor says. "You work that hard for a reason. You want to have access to the dating pool." However, according to his Magic Mike Xxl co-star Channing Tatum, there's more to Manganiello than big muscles. "Everybody sees Joe as the physical specimen he is—you can't miss that. Unfortunately, »
Filming on the project aims to begin this Fall with screenwriter Josh Zetumer's first draft already turned in. However getting a helmer hasn't been as smooth. Last month came word via Heroic Hollywood that "Foxcatcher" helmer Bennett Miller and "Noah" director Darren Aronofsky were both offered the directorial gig. It was a gig both apparently turned down.
Today, Meet the Movie Press (via ScreenCrush) reports that both "The Raid" film series helmer Gareth Evans and "A Most Violent Year" director J.C. Chandor were also apparently approached about the gig and turned down the job.
Tatum and the film's producers are obviously pursuing filmmakers with strong cred, but we've learned with a previous "X-Men" film, namely Gavin Hood's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," an auteur can get burned badly by a studio superhero film. "Gambit »

Ryan Reynolds is currently in Vancouver shooting the long-awaited Deadpool film. This fact alone is news enough to joyously celebrate. So what could make an R-rated Deadpool film even betterc A Wolverine cameo, of course! While giving an interview for the Australian news outlet, News.com.au, Reynolds was asked if we could expect an appearance by everyone's favorite mutant, Wolverine. "God I hope so, that would be really nice," Reynolds said. "I dunno, we'll see. It seems like he's open to it, but it's gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else." This is obviously too good to be true! In March, Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, posted a picture on Instagram insinuating he was going to film X-Men: Apocalypse and then suit up one final time for the third Wolverine film. This would lead you to believe there's no chance we could see Wolverine in Deadpool, rightc I wouldn't rule it out. »

Fox cannot be stopped. After getting their mojo back (note: unrelated to Mojo, long-time Marvel villain who runs deadly reality shows on a far-off planet named for him) with regards to the X-Men films, they’ve since announced a plethora of follow-ups to surprise hit X-Men: Days Of Future Past. First up, direct sequel X-Men: Apocalypse with Bryan Singer behind the camera again.
After that, though, they’re expanding into all sorts of spin-offs. Wolverine’s getting a third solo film – apparently Hugh Jackman’s last turn as Logan – and Deadpool will finally get the movie Ryan Reynolds has been waiting for. Channing Tatum, meanwhile, is going to play Cajun nuisance Gambit in his headlining flick.
Most recently – and most intriguingly – amongst the studio’s recent announcements was that they’d be making a New Mutants film. Everyone was predicting an X-related TV series in the near future, »

While trailers for Magic Mike Xxl ably demonstrate his near-superhuman physique, Channing Tatum's thoughts are turning toward another character with true comic book origins: Gambit, the X-Man he'll be playing in an X-Men spinoff movie next year. "Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it's killer," he told Empire magazine (Zetumer's script is based on a treatment from longtime X-Men comic book writer — and Gambit co-creator — Chris Claremont). "None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the X-Men world. But we're going to be

Will it just be about Gambit's Thieves' Guild days or might it go darker and depict the Mutant Massacre?

Channing Tatum is set to star in the upcoming "Gambit" film and there's a chance he will first make an appearance in "X-Men: Apocalypse." During a recent interview with Empire magazine, Tatum spoke about the solo "Gambit" movie. "Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it's killer," he said. "None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the 'X-Men' world. But we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies. It's always about saving the world (laughs), but maybe we're going to shift things a little bit. There's so many ways you can take [an origin story]. You could do it like 'Batman Begins' or a different take and go the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' route. All I can say is, I'm super excited." "Gambit" is set to hit theaters on October 7th, 2016. "X-Men: Apocalypse" will be released earlier on May 27th, »
It cannot be denied that cinema is currently awash with superheroes, and is certain to stay that way for many years to come, if studio release slate announcements are anything to go by. While the partnerships between Warner Bros and DC, and Disney and Marvel respectively are uppermost in the minds of most fans, the reality of comic book film adaptations is less straight-forward, with different characters belonging to different studios. For example, while the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be considered to have begun with Iron Man back in 2008, 20th Century Fox was way ahead of the game, enjoying success with an X-Men franchise – beginning in 2000. That franchise has so far generated seven movies, with a further six planned. Those upcoming films include spin-off titles for Deadpool and Gambit.
The character of Gambit is a mutant with a heavy Cajun accent and a shadowy personal life. He first appeared in »

We know that Hugh Jackman is set to don the claws for one last time in 2017’s third Wolverine movie, but as yet we’ve not heard whether he’ll be portraying the fan favourite mutant in Fox’s trio of 2016 releases: X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit.
“God, I hope so. That would be really nice. I dunno, we’ll see. It seems like he’s open to it, but it’s gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else.”
Are you hoping to see Jackman back as Wolverine for a cameo in the Deadpool movie? Let us know in the comments below…

Channing Tatum takes centre stage in the new issue of Empire - out on Thursday, May 28 - with Magic Mike himself answering our queries in The Empire Interview. Some questions, as you may have suspected, concern his upcoming Gambit movie, one of the new standalones spinning off from Fox's X-Men universe."I love Gambit," says Tatum exclusively in Empire. "I grew up in the South; my father’s from Louisiana. We’d go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that. And he always felt the most real of the X-Men to me. He’s kind of a tortured soul and he’s not a good guy. But he’s not a bad guy, either. He walks his own path. And of course he plays cards and drinks and is a martial-arts badass! »
Channing Tatum has revealed that his solo Gambit X-Men movie will be an origin story, according to SlashFilm. Score. The actor was talking about the project in the most recent issue of Empire and mentioned that its first draft is done. "[I]t's killer. None of us were sure how [Josh Zetumer] was going to deal with the X-Men world," he says. "But we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies. It's always about saving the world, but maybe we're going to shift things a little bit." Zetumer is reportedly working off of a treatment penned by Gambit's creator, Chris Claremont. The Ragin' Cajun, as Tatum pointed out in his interview, is not exactly a straightforward superhero; his badass kinetic energy control is offset by his vice-driven sketchiness and penchant for thievery. Naturally, Tatum is pumped because that makes for some fun acting, but also because he »

Channing Tatum is going to create a new portrayal of the mutant Gambit for a film centering on the character, with a chance that we’ll see the guy in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse when that film opens in May 2016. We figure this version will pretty much wipe out the one played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: […]

2016 is shaping up to be a big year for Fox and its X-Men franchise; not only do we get X-Men: Apocalypse and the long-awaited Deadpool, but the studio also has another spin-off in the works, with Channing Tatum set to take on the lead role in Gambit. Speaking to Empire in the latest issue of the magazine, Tatum offered up a few words on his preparation for the role of the Cajun card-throwing mutant, as well as an update on the film’s progress.
“I love Gambit,” states Tatum. “I grew up in the South. My father’s from Loiuisiana. We’d go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that. And Gambit always felt the most real of the X-Men to me. He’s kind of a tortured »

Over the course of their various incarnations, the X-Men movie series has typically stuck to the task of tackling immense threats to the world. While that.s all well and good for those team-dynamic films, it.s starting to sound as if Channing Tatum wants to break that mold a bit with his upcoming solo shot in next year.s Gambit. Could we be seeing a different take on the origin film? In an interview with Empire Magazine, Channing Tatum implies that his character, Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit, may require a film that has his character approaching the mutant film universe way that.s uniquely his own. As Tatum states: None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the X-Men world. But we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies.

In a time where pretty much every flavour of pornography ever made is only a few clicks away, the idea of a studio pushing a film as 'racy' seems laughable. From the underwhelming light bondage of "Fifty Shades of Grey" to the first "Magic Mike" film, what equates as racy (asses, a hint of pubes, some basic gyration) feels almost quaint.
So skepticism is naturally there regarding promises about "Magic Mike Xxl," the upcoming sequel which aims to give us what the first film's marketing promised and the film itself ultimately failed to deliver - plenty of male bump and grind.
Former "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello, who plays Big Dick Richie in the film, spoke with PopSugar about the sequel and talked up how the movie will shock people - at least those who think bukkake is an entree and felching is something catfish do:
"This movie is going to blow people's minds. »

2016 is a crowded and incredibly exciting year for superhero movies, but one release which is flying somewhat under the radar is Gambit, an X-Men spinoff starring Channing Tatum. The actor landed the role after making it clear in interviews how interested in the Cajun character he is, and Fox are currently in the process of hunting for a director. So, just how excited is the actor about the movie? "I love Gambit," Tatum says in the latest issue of Empire Magazine. "I grew up in the South; my father's from Loiuisiana. We'd go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that.

When we visited the set of Magic Mike Xxl, Channing Tatum made several lofty promises for this Summer's sequel, but costar Joe Manganiello (returning as "Big Dick Richie") is almost seeking to outdo him. With more definitive answers for the kind of movie this is (definitely a comedy) and how racy it's going to be (it's going to be "out there," he pledged), Manganiello has us even more excited for the movie. And not just that, in our interview with him and several other reporters on the Savannah, Ga, location, Manganiello spilled about fiancée Sofia Vergara, who was visiting him on set that day. Yes, he said the things you'd expect him to say, along with a little Tmi that might make you blush. Ready for Manganiello's antics? What are we going to learning about your character that we didn't learn in the last film? Joe Manganiello: This movie is an ensemble, »
