“X-Men” star Shawn Ashmore spoke about his love of the X-Men franchise, whether he’d be interested in an Iceman solo film and how he’d be interested in playing Ghost Rider during an interview with IGN.
“If Fox would make it then I would do it,” he said when asked if he’d be up for an Iceman solo film. “I love that character, I love the Marvel universe, especially the last couple of films. I was so excited about ‘Days of Future Past’ when I heard about that — reading the script, realizing the script — it was so exciting for me, so if that was ever an opportunity? Absolutely.”
However, due to the X-Men’s nature as a team franchise, he doesn’t think his odds at a solo film are good. “What I always loved about the X-Men is that it wasn’t about solo characters. I think that the characters really come to life when you put them in the context of the school with Xavier, with the team – that’s what I always loved about the X-Men. So I’m not sure if that would ever happen,” he explained.
Additionally, he shared what other superheroes he would like to play if he had the opportunity. “Marvel-wise, I love Nightcrawler and I love Ghost Rider and I don’t know if I’d ever get the chance to play those characters, but I’d love to see another take on Ghost Rider maybe. I love those books.”
Ashmore has continued to follow his character Iceman for some time, even taking to Twitter to comment on the announcement that young Bobby Drake is gay. “Congrats Bobby!” the star Tweeted, adding, “Omg there is going to be an onslaught of fanfic!!”
Ashmore will next appear in “Quantum Break,” a video game for which he has filmed live action sequences.
