As of writing this article, Channing Tatum’s stunt double Joel Adrian is listed on the official Deadpool 3 IMDB page under the credit “Stunt Double: Channing Tatum”, which in IMDB lingo means stunt double for Channing Tatum.
The Magic Mike star himself has yet to be added as an official cast member, however, this potentially means that the recent rumours were true all along that Tatum will appear as the iconic Marvel Mutant known as Remy LeBeau aka Gambit.
See below for a screenshot of the “Stunts” section from the Deadpool 3 IMDB page.
Channing Tatum Cast In Deadpool 3 Rumours… Confirmed?
Although this may be exciting to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tatum’s casting has yet to be officially announced or debunked by the studio or the third Deadpool movie’s cast and crew.
However, it is at least safe to assume that stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman will be bringing Tatum along for the ride since he lost the opportunity to play the character back when 20th Century Fox held the movie rights to the X-Men franchise, now 20th Century Studios.
Gambit Most Likely Tatum’s Deadpool 3 Role, If IMDB Page Listing Is Accurate
After all, the three did attend a San Diego Comic-Con with Stan Lee and various live-action X-Men franchise cast members one year, with Tatum who expressed high excitement in taking on the role that was previously played by Taylor Kitsch in Origins: Wolverine.
Regardless of how accurate this new IMDB data is, speculation that additional Deadpool 3 casting rumours bear more truth to them is more than expected to heighten across social media platforms and forums online.
As aforementioned, the data presented on IMDB is currently still present on the Deadpool 3 IMDB page as of writing, it may be removed at a later date.
Deadpool 3 releases in theatres on May 3, 2024.
