Last week Rick Famuyiwa was announced as the director of The Flash. However, the ‘Dope’ Director’s Twitter account hinted at his involvement in the DC universe long before it was announced. Speculation started when he started following a number of DC Twitter accounts. Now he started following a familiar face; Channing Tatum.
Right in the middle of following DC Comics actors and movie accounts, Famuyiwa followed Channing Tatum. It’s pure speculation, but it does seem like a rather odd coincidence that Famuyiwa would randomly start following Tatum, right? The Gambit movie was originally supposed to take place this year, but filming was delayed and the studio pulled the movie from its previously-announced release date of October 7, 2016. In a shocking twist, it seems that the actor might have left his Gambit project in favour of a role in the DC Universe.
