  • "Gambit was the only superhero I really followed.… He was the most real to me: smoking, drinking, women-loving, thief. He just looked cool to me. I've always loved him. And obviously he’s Cajun."
  • "I’ve been pretty vocal about wanting to be the part of Gambit for a very long time. It's a weird, pinching-myself moment that we're even having the conversation. We've talked about it being a standalone, first, and actually trying to change the ‘hero, superhero movie.’ Because Gambit is not your typical hero. He’s a thief. He walks on the gray. I’m hoping we can change it a little bit, and then ultimately feather into the other ones."
  • "You know, I don’t know if I’m at liberty to say. But I don’t think I want to introduce Gambit until you can really explain who Gambit is."
  • "This is the last contracted one for now, so we’ll wait and see what the guys come up with. Simon Kinberg’s writing this one again, and Brian is directing, so it’s going to be a good crew. There’s some cool stuff."
  • "I love Gambit. 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 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!"
  • "Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it's killer. 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 liittle but. 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 Guardian of the Galaxy route. All I can say is, I'm super excited."
  • "No m'am, or sir. I definitely will not [appear in Apocalypse]."
  • "We finally found someone that I really do believe wants to make Gambit. He will be the second standalone character. And I just really think because Gambit is not the most popular or the biggest hero, I think there's a really unique opportunity. Marvel's done a lot of great movies that have made a ridiculous amount of money, and it's always good to figure how to change the form."
  • "We're so early in it. I really have some things in mind, but who knows -- it's pretty fluid at this point. I do believe that Rupert and I have the exact same vision of what we want to do. We want it to be different. I think Gambit is a really specific sort of character to not do some of these other things that some of the other superheroes kind of have to do. It's who they are. I think his character lends itself to doing something maybe slightly different."
  • "Who knows? You never know what time it's going to be set in."
