Ellen Page wouldn’t have a problem if 20th Century Fox decided to make a standalone Kitty Pryde movie at some point down the road.
The actress originally appeared as the character in director Brett Ratner’s much-maligned sequel X-Men: The Last Stand. Page recently reprised her role as Kitty Pryde in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The flick should hit theaters next year.
During her recent chat with Vulture, Ellen Page discussed the joy of playing the superhero on the big screen. If The Avengers director Joss Whedon gets to make a Kitty Pryde solo flick, the actress is willing to lend a helping hand.
“Kitty Pryde’s awesome. I’m super grateful to be the actress who’s gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them,” Page explained.
For the record she added, “I would be so thrilled to play Kitty Pryde again. I really would.”
According to Worst Previews, Whedon has had his eye on a Kitty Pryde standalone movie for quite some time. Since the Firefly once wrote for Astonishing X-Men back in the day, he developed quite an affinity for certain characters.
Although 20th Century Fox wasn’t interested in a movie featuring the superhero back in 2009, Whedon’s status in Hollywood has changed quite a bit since that time.
The website also points out that the studio tried to move forward with a Kitty Pryde project not too long ago. Apparently executives were interested in getting Juno director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody involved. The project apparently never got off the ground.
