Rumour: Deadpool director developing a Kitty Pryde X-Men spinoff movie

If rumours are to be believed, Deadpool director Tim Miller is eyeing a return to the X-Men universe, with Collider claiming that he is currently developing a movie based around the X-Men character Kitty Pryde, played by Ellen Page in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Now, if there is any truth to this rumour, it remains to be seen how it will be impacted by The Walt Disney Company’s takeover of 21st Century Fox’s film assets. It’s been said that it is “business at usual” at Fox for the time being, and that the likes of Gambit and X-Force remain part of the studio’s slate.

That being said, Miller is currently prepping his Terminator reboot with James Cameron, and presumably once he’s finished with that, Disney and Marvel Studios will have made their decision as to how they plan to handle the X-Men moving forward.

"Deadpool" Director Has "Kitty Pryde"

  • SneakPeek
According to reports, "Deadpool" director Tim Miller is developing an "X-Men" spin-off feature, based around the Marvel Comics' character 'Kitty Pryde' aka 'Shadowcat':

The character debuted in Marvel's "Uncanny X-Men" #129 (January 1980) created by John Byrne and Chris Claremont.

A 'mutant', Kitty Pryde possesses a 'phasing' ability that allows her, as well as objects or people she is in contact with, to become intangible. This power also disrupts any electrical field she passes through and lets her simulate levitation.

During the Marvel mini-series "Kitty Pryde and Wolverine" she is renamed 'Shadowcat' and after joining 'Guardians of the Galaxy', assumes her fiancé's superhero identity as 'Star-Lord'.

In the Fox "X-Men" film series, Kitty was portrayed by Sumela Kay in "X-Men" (2000), Katie Stuart in "X2" (2003), Ellen Page in "X-Men: The Last Stand" (2006) and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (2014).

Kitty Pryde Movie in Development with Deadpool Director

Kitty Pryde Movie in Development with Deadpool Director
It looks like Tim Miller, the man who directed Deadpool, is currently developing another X-Men project for Fox. This time, he's tackling fan-favorite character Kitty Pryde and developing a solo movie for her. At the present time, it's unclear how far along this movie is in the development stage, but the report does caution that there's no guarantee this movie will ever see the light of day, for various reasons.

With the caveat out of the way that this Kitty Pryde movie is merely being developed and not definitely going to be filming, Tim Miller is said to be "hard at work" on the project. It also isn't clear if he's writing the movie himself, or if he's just developing the idea and will bring on a writer later on in the process. It is being reported that, if all goes well and this movie makes it far enough to

X-Men: Kitty Pryde movie in development

David Crow Jan 10, 2018

20th Century Fox and Deadpool director are developing a Kitty Pryde movie in the studio's X-Men universe.

Whatever may or may not happen when the Disney-Fox deal concludes its long regulatory review process, it appears to matter little to the development side of 20th Century Fox, which seems to be proceeding with business as usual, including in the development of yet another X-Men spinoff, this one starring Kitty Pryde, aka Shadowcat. Further, in news that should intrigue fans, the project - which would still be in its early stages - has Deadpool’s Tim Miller attached as a potential director.

Indeed, the news comes via Collider, which reports that Miller has been developing a Kitty Pryde movie at Fox for some time as producer, and is leaving the door open to also direct the film. This might come as a surprise to some fans who are

Deadpool Director Tim Miller is Developing a Kitty Pryde Movie

According to Collider, Deadpool director Tim Miller is currently developing a Marvel movie that revolves around the X-Men character Kitty Pryde. The movie project has been and is currently in development at Fox. Who knows if the Disney merger will affect that, but according to the report, the project hasn't been affected yet. I'm sure it will eventually complicate things. Fox and Miller just don't want to sit around and wait to see if Disney is going to shut the project down or not.

Kitty Pryde, who is also known as Shadowcat, Ariel, and Sprite is a mutant who has the ability of "phase", which allows her to pass through solid objects, disrupt electromagnetic fields, and even levitate.

I've always liked the character Kitty Pryde who was played by Ellen Page in the X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Day of Future Past. I doubt that Page will come back for the role,

A Kitty Pryde Spinoff Movie Is In The Works With Deadpool’s Tim Miller

Renown X-Men character Kitty Pryde (Aka Shadowcat) has been earmarked for her own spinoff at Fox.

Collider has the scoop, revealing that Tim Miller (Deadpool) is developing a potential solo movie for the all-powerful mutant. Exciting though that may be, the outlet goes on to stress that, due to the historic Disney-Fox merger, Miller’s project may never take that definitive step into production.

Couple this with the director’s stacked schedule (read: The Terminator and…Sonic the Hedgehog) and it’s important to keep our expectations in check at this early, early stage. A Kitty Pryde movie is in development, but if history has taught us anything, it’s that just because a project sparks into life at a major Hollywood studio – 20th Century Fox, in this instance – doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll see the light of day. And let’s face it; the impending Disney buyout will surely complicate matters further.

New X-Men: Dark Phoenix Images Tease Death, Destruction and Pain

New X-Men: Dark Phoenix Images Tease Death, Destruction and Pain
Some brand new photos from X-Men: Dark Phoenix have arrived online and they're pretty revealing. First and foremost, the identity of Jessica Chastain's villain, which has been pretty mysterious up to this point, has been revealed. Sort of. While there's still plenty of mystery left to unravel, her character has been given a name in this latest batch of photos, and that name is simply Smith. As for what that tells us? That's a bit more difficult to say, but what it does tell us leads us to believe we could be in for a bit of a surprise.

It was previously thought that Jessica Chastain is going to play Lilandra from the world of the X-Men comics. That later was debunked, so we were left with the mystery of who exactly her character is. This photo, which shows the character standing upon some rubble, doesn't tell us much,

Sophie Turner talks X-Men: Dark Phoenix, praises director Simon Kinberg

The latest – and potentially final – instalment of Fox’s main X-Men franchise is set to arrive in November 2018, as long-time franchise writer and producer Simon Kinberg takes a second stab at one of the most popular X-Men comic book arcs in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Unlike X-Men: The Last Stand, Kinberg finds himself in the director’s chair this time around for what is his directorial debut, and actress Sophie Turner – who portrays the pivotal role of Jean Grey – has been full of praise for the filmmaker:

“Simon has been the brain behind X-Men for years, and it’s really exciting to have what feels like one of our own rise up and take hold of the franchise, and direct it in the way that he sees it,” said Turner. “I have to say he’s one of the best directors I’ve ever worked with. He’s so passionate and collaborative.

The New Mutants Simply Don’t Care About The X-Men, And Here’s Why

In a feeling shared by those of us who sat through X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: Apocalypse, the characters of The New Mutants simply don’t care about the X-Men. Of the three X-Universe films due for release in 2018 – Dark Phoenix, Deadpool 2 and The New Mutants – the latter looks the most interesting, as it’s a straight horror story about mentally unstable teenage mutants struggling to control their powers.

But though they may be having a tough time now, surely it’s the ambition of every mutant to one day don the followed X-uniform, right? Well, apparently not, as in an interview with USA Today, director Josh Boone said the following:

These kids could care less about being X-Men. They’re so (messed) up and have had such horrible things happen, they’re just trying to figure out how to get out of this situation. We

Magneto Gets Captured in New Look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Magneto Gets Captured in New Look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix
It looks like Magneto isn't going to be having his best day in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The future of the X-Men franchise is a bit uncertain, given the recent Disney purchase of Fox. But X-Men: Dark Phoenix is definitely coming out and is set to hit theaters on November 11. The movie will hopefully manage to make up for the disaster that was X-Men: The Last Stand. Now, a brand new image of Michael Fassbender's Magneto in Dark Phoenix, in addition to some new plot details, have been revealed.

The image was released without a lot of context, but we see Magneto laying on a dark, cracked and broken landscape. He's also seen better days, looking rather beat up. There are several figures standing around him with guns and flashlights. Are the mutants going to be hunted like dogs by humans in X-Men: Dark Phoenix? Did Magneto do something to

Kingsman Director Is Ready to Save the DC Movie Universe

Kingsman Director Is Ready to Save the DC Movie Universe
Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn seems poised to direct a DC movie in the not-too-distant future. The question remains, what movie? Vaughn admits he's met with Warner Bros. to discuss a "few things," but remains vague. However, in a new interview, he says he loves DC and would rather take on a franchise that's on a bit of a downswing, for reasons that actually make quite a bit of sense. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I do love the world of DC, and I've been talking to them at the moment about a few things. It's more fun getting involved with franchises when they're on the down, because then it's easier to make a good film. So if I got involved with a few of the superhero films out there that have been disappointing, it's going to be... if I do Ok,

Kingsman Director Matthew Vaughn Would Rather Work With DC Than Marvel

Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn previously helmed a movie based on Marvel characters with 2011’s X-Men: First Class, but for his next superhero outing, he wants to switch over to the DC side.

Vaughn was chatting on the IGN UK podcast when he explained his thoughts on why he would much rather work within the still-forming DC Extended Universe than the firmly established Marvel Cinematic Universes. As well as revealing that he’s currently in talks with DC over some mystery projects, Vaughn made clear he likes the comfort blanket of working with franchises that are on the ropes over those that are flying high.

“I do love the world of DC, and I’ve been talking to them at the moment about a few things. It’s more fun getting involved with franchises when they’re on the down, because then it’s easier to make a good film. So

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is Tribute to X-Women, Female Strength

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is Tribute to X-Women, Female Strength
Last week was quite a big one for fans of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix, since fans got their first look at the Dark Phoenix that consumes Sophie Turner's Jean Grey character. We also learned about a huge twist that apparently comes halfway through the movie, along with more details about Jessica Chastain's mystery character, who is an alien shapeshifter and not Lilandra, as previously believed. Writer-director Simon Kinberg, who makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix, revealed in a new interview that he wanted this movie to focus on not just Jean Grey, but the other important female mutant characters as well. Here's what Simon Kinberg had to say below.

"I really wanted to acknowledge the strength of the women in the comic and in the actresses that we have and the central storyline demands it."

X-Men: Dark Phoenix to serve as a tribute to the women of the team

After the Dark Phoenix story-line was largely blotched in X-men: The Last Stand, Simon Kinberg will have the opportunity to redeem himself with X-men: Dark Phoenix, which will much more appropriately put Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) front and center. But it won't just be Jean Grey under the spotlight, but also the other women of the film as well, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and the... Read More...

Simon Kinberg on course correcting the X-Men series with Dark Phoenix, confirms Genosha

After more than a decade serving as writer and producer on 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise, Simon Kinberg now finds himself behind the camera for the latest chapter of the main series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Earlier in the week we saw some first look images from the movie – Fox’s second attempt at adapting The Dark Phoenix Saga after the disappointing X-Men: The Last Stand – and now Kinberg has been chatting to EW about the movie, stating that he intends on course correcting the series after mistakes made with the previous chapter, X-Men: Apocalypse.

“I think we took our eye off what has always been the bedrock of the franchise which is these characters,” said Kinberg. It became about global destruction and visual effects over emotion and character… One of the things I went into this film wanting to do is obviously focus on the characters and give them

Simon Kinberg talks X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Jean Grey’s transformation

Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s first look images [which we have for you here], long time X-Men writer-producer and debut director Simon Kinberg has been talking to Entertainment Weekly about next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and more specifically Jean Grey’s transformation into the Phoenix.

“Jean absorbs those solar flares and then hurls them back out into space,” said Kinberg. “That’s what triggers, awakens, creates this Phoenix force and voice inside her. What appears to the world to be another heroic victory by the X-Men in saving stranded people in space we realize is the the thing that begins the unraveling of Jean and the unraveling of secrets Charles told her.”

So, while we’re getting to see the X-Men in space, it seems that – as with Kinberg’s first attempt at The Dark Phoenix Saga, X-Men: The Last Stand – the Phoenix will be part of Jean Grey, rather than the

‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ Director Simon Kinberg Admits ‘Apocalypse’ Failed Because It Put VFX Over Characters

‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ Director Simon Kinberg Admits ‘Apocalypse’ Failed Because It Put VFX Over Characters
Simon Kinberg has been with the “X-Men” franchise ever since he co-wrote the 2006 entry “X-Men: The Last Stand,” which means he’s pretty good and telling which installments strike a chord with fans and which end up being disappointments. Ahead of making his directorial debut with “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” Kinberg admits to Entertainment Weekly that the previous entry, “X-Men: Apocalypse,” was not the franchise’s best.

Kevin Feige Created a Plan For an X-men Cinematic Universe For Fox That They Didn't Use

Before Kevin Feige was the president of Marvel Studios and was overseeing the Marvel Cinematic Universe that he played a huge role in creating, he worked with producer Lauren Shuler Donner on the early X-Men films for Fox. He worked his way up from an assistant to an associate producer when the X-Men made their big screen debut in 2000. By the time X2 was released Feige worked his way up to co-producer, and then served as executive producer on X-Men: The Last Stand.

Early on in the process of the development of these X-Men films, Feige worked with Donner on developing a plan on how the X-Men film franchise should play out. But, Fox didn't end up going with the plan they presented. During an interview with Vanity Fair, Donner expressed how proud she is of Feige and his accomplishments, and that's when she shared this little tidbit of information:

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Has a Huge Twist Fans Won't See Coming
Following the new photos from X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which offered our first look at Jessica Chastain's villain character, new plot details have surfaced. The latest report from Entertainment Weekly teases that the movie will feature some of the biggest set pieces in X-Men franchise history, the mutants' first trip to outer space along with, according to EW, "a massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise." Sadly, no further details were given regarding said twist, but James McAvoy revealed that this is the darkest X-Men movie yet.

"This is probably the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven. There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering."

While nothing about this twist has been revealed, there was a rumor that surfaced last month which revealed that writer-director Simon Kinberg intends to show just how powerful the Dark Phoenix is, by having
