But there still may be hope.

Channing Tatum might not join the "X-Men" universe after all.

According to The Wrap, the "Magic Mike" actor is possibly planning to exit his comic-book film "Gambit." The site is reporting that the deal is falling apart between 20th Century Fox and Tatum. The actor is also on board the project as a producer with his producing partner Reid Carolin, but it's unknown whether or not he'll stay attached if director Rupert Wyatt places his star.

There's still hope, however, as The Wrap reports that Tatum's reps are still in negotiations with the studio. The Huffington Post could not immediately reach Fox or Tatum's reps for comment.

Last year, it was revealed that the actor would star as the titular "X-Men" mutant in his own film. Tatum also appeared at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month to promote "Gambit."
