In a sentence I never thought I'd write, Anson Mount made the wrong decision not playing Gambit. Sure, his movie would be in development hell for years, but then the studio might not be unhappy with his show. Mount spoke with Marvel's approved PR firm Valnet Inc. Presents Comic Book Resources ahead of the Inhumans premiere.

"I wanted to be Gambit for a really long time, and then Channing Tatum ruined that for me! But I think he's gonna do a great job."

Tatum has long been attached to a Gambit film, stretching back years. Not much has happened in that time, but Tatum recently said that the film is starting from scratch.

ABC's Marvel's Inhumans debuted in IMAX before debuting on television September 29. The eight-episode drama stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, Serinda Swan as Queen Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton and Sonya Balmores as Auran.
