  • "I knew of him, but I didn't know the following he had. I'm sure I'm still going to be exposed to that. I love the character, I love the powers, and I love what they did with him. I didn't know that much, but in my experience, it was a blessing to go in and create my take on him. I'm excited for it, to say the least."
  • "I'd love to go darker. Gambit in Vegas was fun but, I want to go into the Thieves Guild part of his story."
  • "There were strong rumors a while ago, but I haven't heard or seen anything tangible anyways. I know if we do it, it'll probably be down the road and we'll do it hopefully a lot darker. I'd love to play him again, but it's a matter of doing it right, too. There's no point in just doing it for the sake of doing it. You gotta kill if you're going to do it, so we'll see."
  • "I'm done with Gambit."
  • "I would [play Gambit again] under the right circumstances. But if Tatum does it, good on him. He’ll kill it. It’s such a cool character. Whoever plays him will be a lucky guy. It is what is it, I’m not going to be like ‘Oh my God, why don’t I get to play him?’ If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. And if not, I’ll move on. If they cast Tatum, I wish him nothing but the best. I hope he kicks the crap out of it."
  • "Um…no, I didn’t have a go. Ever since we finished the movie, it’s never really been an option. But no, I wish him nothing but the best. It was a fun character to play, and I learned a lot working with Hugh and had an amazing time in Australia. I’m sure they’re doing their own thing with it, and I’m sure Channing will be great."
