The rumor mill is churning yet again and with it come whispers that FOX is allegedly considering Daniel Craig to play the role of Mr. Sinister in their upcoming movie production of Gambit.
The news trickles in from Splash Report that Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. Mr. Sinister, will be the film’s feature villain and that Craig’s name has been thrown around in regards to potential choices.
Whether or not the Bond actor is as open to the possibility of appearing in the film still remains to be seen.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine sawÂ Taylor KitschÂ as the right fit for the role of Gambit but rumors suggest that in the upcoming feature filmÂ Channing TatumÂ may get the nod. Â Kitsch was quoted as saying, “If he does it, good on him,” telling the Chicago Tribune. Â “He’ll kill it. Â It’s such a cool character.”
Whichever way FOX decides to go in regards to casting fans will still have to wait until late 2018, possibly even sometime in 2019 for the film’s debut.
