Current James Bond star Daniel Craig is rumored to be playing the primary villain of the upcoming “X-Men” spin-off feature “Gambit”.
Splash Report last week shared an apparent detailed plot synopsis for the film which would have Nathaniel Essex, A.K.A. Mr. Sinister, as the primary villain.
They say “conversations” are underway about bringing Craig onboard to play Sinister in “Gambit” before reprising the role for other future X-Men movies. Of course, a lot of this will depend upon Craig’s schedule – especially with his fifth and final Bond film on the way.
Channing Tatum, who will star as the titular mutant, recently co-starred with Craig in “Logan Lucky”.
