Ellen Page would love to return for Kitty Pryde film, but will she be an unlikely choice to lead the new film

X-Men franchise star Ellen Page reveals that she would love to return for Tim Miller’s upcoming Kitty Pryde movie, just don’t expect Page to be the studio’s pick.

Speaking to Cinema Blend to discuss her movie The Cured, Page stated that “I loved playing Kitty Pryde, and I think one of the things I always felt was I wish I could have done more. My experience in the films wasn’t necessarily that extensive and she is such a great character. I don’t know anything about the movie to be honest with you, but yeah, of course, that’s something I’d love to do, but I don’t know.”

Miller won over fandom with his R-rated Deadpool film, but now has his sights on a Terminator project and will be tied down to that project for the next couple of years. Since the logistics of bringing together Fox’s Marvel properties with Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe still needs to be worked out after the recent buyout, these projects are speculative at best.

Page is a 31-year-old actress, not carrying big name films and seems unlikely to be cast as the lead in the future film. The Juno star landed a role in Christopher Nolan’s Inception and returned as Kitty for the 3014 X-Men: Days of Future Past, but her resume doesn’t exactly warrant Marvel Studios headlining.

Other than teaming with comic writer Brian Michael Bendis, there is little known, so this is in very early stages of development.

Screen Rant did note that “considering Pryde’s complex relationship with Wolverine in the comics, her own movie could at least tease the return of the clawed Canadian to the world of the X-Men or even connect the FOXverse and the MCU.”

Moreover, a possible Kitty film could re-introduce a new Wolverine to step into Hugh Jackman’s shoes for a presence in the MCU.

Added all together, assuming the Fox and Disney merger goes through, Miller’s schedule, Kitty could get her own film in five or six years, just not with Ellen Page as the lead.
