Despite reports that the actor may drop out of Fox's upcoming "X-Men" spinoff, The Hollywood Reporter says Tatum has closed a deal for the role. News that Tatum may not play the card-wielding mutant broke after contract negotiations reportedly hit a snag. Tatum's level of involvement in the "X-Men" franchise was one of the major points being discussed. But it looks like the impasse wasn't as bad as previously thought since everything has finally been worked out. Back-and-forth with top stars is "normal" for negotiations, THR reports.
Now that he's definitely on board, we can probably expect more awesomeness to come.
