Channing Tatum has revealed that when he takes on the role of Marvel comics character Gambit for an upcoming film, it will need to have subtitles

Channing Tatum claims his upcoming Gambit movie will need subtitles.

The '22 Jump Street' star confirmed earlier this week that a movie based on the Marvel Comics character was in the works and he's now confessed that he's started preparing for the role, and thinks that people will struggle to understand his dialogue.

He said: "I would say we're going to try to do something a little bit different. I don't know how to exactly explain it just yet, but he's a 'character' character.

"He's got a serious Cajun accent. I don't know if you've heard a Cajun accent but it's - I mean, we're going to have to have subtitles sometimes."

The 33-year-old actor - who previously admitted he'd always wanted to play Gambit because they share the same heritage - wants to make his character more authentic by learning Cajun French, a language spoken in his father's hometown of Louisiana.

He added to the Latino Review: "He [Gambit] has almost a Jedi mind trick thing that I want to try to put in where he speaks patois and so I'm going to have to learn patois, which is going to be hard."
