Deadpool director Tim Miller has been confirmed to be developing a new X-Men spin-off on the character Kitty Pryde for Fox.

Kitty Pryde is the youngest person to join the X-Men, she was first portrayed as a “kid sister” to many older members of the X-Men, filling the role of literary foil to the more established characters. During this time she occasionally uses the codenames Sprite and Ariel, undergoing many costume changes for each codename until settling for her trademark black and gold costume her abilities include the 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 miniseries Kitty Pryde and Wolverine, she is renamed Shadowcat, the alias she would be most associated with, and transitions to the more mature depiction of her subsequent appearances. She was one of the main cast of characters depicted in the original Excalibur title. After joining the Guardians of the Galaxy, she assumes her fiancé’s superhero identity as the Star-Lord.

Fox seems to be carrying on as normal with the Disney acquisition of certain assets hoovering over them not putting them off their stride, however, there is no confirmation that this movie could be given the green light once the deal has all gone through.

Miller is currently working on the untitled Terminator Reboot which will see the return of Linda Hamilton to the franchise after she was last seen in 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, she will be reprising her role as Sarah Connor, the film is due for a 2019 release. Miller is also producing the Sonic the Hedgehog movie down at Paramount.
