Report: Deadpool Director Developing Kitty Pryde Solo Film for Fox

Kitty Pryde David Marquez

Despite the in-progress Disney buyout, Fox's X-Men film franchise continues to develop a slate of solo movies for some of its most popular characters. In addition to Deadpool and Gambit solo flicks, it's been reported today that Kitty Pryde -- best known by her superhero name of Shadowcat -- will get a solo movie of her own as well.

According to a report by Collider, Kitty's solo film will be developed by Tim Miller, director of 2016's Deadpool. At this time, no other information about the film, such as a potential writer or additional producers or whether Ellen age would return to the role, has been revealed.

In fact, it's entirely possible the film may not come to fruition, given the looming Disney-Fox deal, but if it does happen, she'll be the first female X-Men character to headline her own movie.

Created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne in 1980, Kitty has the power to phase through solid objects, from brick or metal walls to a person's body. She's been a staple of the X-Men since she first debuted, acting as a member of various X-teams, including Excalibur. In recent years, she hung around with the Guardians of the Galaxy, acting as their Star-Lord while Peter Quill was out as the King of Spartax. Her dalliance with space ended not too long ago, and she currently acts as leader for the X-Men's Gold team, in addition to managing the Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach.
