I'm fine with them doing a spinoff of Gambit but Tatum playing the part doesn't feel right to me.....don't know why yet but I feel it so there must be a reason.

Seems like a step down after Apes, you think they would have gotten a younger director for the role. Maybe he's just doing a penance for how awful the Gambler was.
