So the casting of Channing Tatum as Gambit is a little farcical and will surely awake the Kracken of internet ire on every message board. Not much we can do but sit back and hope. Live action aside, Gambit is still the ragin’ Cajun and this terrific is worth the price for your collection. The mutant created by Chris Claremont & Jim Lee continues to be a fan favorite and Marvel Select does a top-notch job with its iteration in plastic form. Not only do you get streaks of purple kinetic energy but the figure is also replete with his famous playing cards and staff. Very cool bonus points there. As for the live action version of the silver-tongued mutant, we’ll have to wait and see what happens. A steal at just $25.
