Fox’s X-Men franchise may long be dead after Disney’s acquisition of the film studio, especially the long-gestating Gambit project starring Channing Tatum (Logan Lucky), but producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed new details on the latter project, namely one villain’s planned appearance in it.

During a watch party of the acclaimed 2014 installment of the superhero franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Kinberg revealed that the special scene in the credits of X-Men: Apocalypse was originally setting up the introduction of iconic villain Mr. Sinister for the Gambit solo film.

We had a tease of it at the end of Apocalypse,” he said. “The Essex Corp is something that you see in a tag at the end of Apocalypse. We had talked about doing something with him, and I won’t get into the specifics of it since it’s no longer a 20th Century Fox property and now it’s part of the MCU. I have no idea what the plan is. But Mister Sinister was going to be part of the Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum.

Kinberg did also confirm that the character was never cast for the future films, essentially shutting down the rumors that Jon Hamm (Baby Driver) was set to appear as Mr. Sinister in Josh Boone’s long-awaited horror-tinged The New Mutants, which is currently set to finally see the light of day on August 28.

Gambit tore through a number of directors in development (Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman, Gore Verbinski) while struggling to get off the ground for years. The last we heard was Tatum himself was angling to make his directorial debut on the project, which he would have also headlined as Remy LeBeau from a script by his longtime Free Association production partner Reid Carolin (Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL).
