Channing TatumChanning Tatum‘s new movie in which he’ll star as X-Men character Gambit has gotten a release date (October 7, 2016) from Fox, the studio producing the movie. After Fox made the announcement yesterday, the actor tweeted last night: “How do you say October 7, 2016 in Cajun?” Gambit is a mutant from Louisiana who can infuse objects with energy and have them explode. He’s also a thief and a womanizer and his name comes from his ability to manipulate playing cards and his fondness for gambling.

Although at first it was announced that Gambit would first appear in be introduced in the followup to Days of Future Past: X-Men: Apocalypse, there’s now talk that if he appears in the film, it’ll only be a cameo and his first substantial appearance on the big screen will be in his solo film, which does not yet have a title. The script will reportedly be written by Josh Zetumer from a treatment by Marvel writer Chris Claremont, who created the character.
