“It’ll Never Happen Now”
Tim Miller’s Kitty Pryde movie isn’t happening. The Deadpool director sat down to talk about his latest flick, Terminator: Dark Fate when he was asked about possibly working with Marvel Studios on future projects.
Earlier this year, before Disney bought 20th Century Fox, the rumour mill was alive with the story that Miller would be directing a Kitty Pryde stand-alone movie.
Miller doesn’t think it will ever happen, nor does he think he’ll be asked to direct any movie for Marvel Studios, which now holds the rights to the X-Men movie franchise. Miller said –
“I love the X-Men. I don’t expect Marvel to call me and say, ‘Come do the X-Men,’ so I’m not waiting for that. I was really excited about my Kitty Pryde movie. Fuck, I love that movie. It’ll never happen now.”
While we won’t be getting a Kitty Pryde spin-off film, we have seen her on the big screen before, appearing in the first two X-Men movies in minor roles, before Ellen Page took over for X-Men: Last Stand.
Page’s take on the character was never a major part of the previous X-Men movies, but then again, this was likely to be an alternate version, as it was supposedly set in the same universe as Dark Phoenix and would have taken place in the aftermath of that picture.
There’s currently no word on whether the Kitty Pryde film will be rescued, though, with Marvel Phase 4 looking full, chances are the movie has been abandoned for good.
Would you still like to see a stand-alone Kitty Pryde movie in the MCU?
