According to a report from Collider, Tim Miller, the man behind Deadpool, has set his sights on another famous mutant for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise. The director apparently is developing a Kitty Pryde solo film! Keep in mind that although a movie is in development, it may not make it to production. Also, there’s the $52.4 billion merger to remember. This could very well cause the film to hit development hell and never see the light of day, but I am still excited for the possibility of this project!
With female-led solo films on the rise in the comic book community, there’s no better time than now for a movie like this. I almost wish the Marvel/Fox deal didn’t go through just yet because I think Fox might be on to something and I really want this franchise that I hold so dear to make it out the trenches with no help.
The last time we saw Kitty Pryde on-screen was in X-Men: Days of Future Past played by Ellen Page. I personally loved what Page brought to the role and could definitely see her leading a solo film for the character. This is a step in the right direction, considering that Kitty Pryde is the current leader of the X-Men in today’s comic run.
What do you guys think? Are we here for a solo Kitty Pryde movie? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
