Apparently Josh Whedon, in an interview, that wants to see a solo Kitty Pryde movie.
Ellen Page, and me, would love to see that too!
I imagine with Whedon’s clout he now has, I bet he could really make this happen. I am sure he rather not become the comic book adaption writer / director guy while in this phase of his career, but he could probably push FOX to do it. Plus, I am sure Disney Marvel has him on a specific contract, so he can’t direct another studio’s comic book adaption.
A Kitty Pryde movie could be made, for like, no money. Not Chasing Amy no money, but a budget of 20 million, max, could do it, I bet.
Just open up Shadow and Flame, and start filming.
Throw Hugh Jackman in the beginning of the film, to wish her luck, warning her that Japan can be quite dangerous.
Have Lockheed in it, of course, and don’t have her try to explain why he is there, just imply they met on a previous adventure.
Though I am not sure if this would keep Lockheed from being in a Pet Avengers animated film. Maybe they could do a deal like they have with Sony. Disney Marvel owns animated Spider-Man, and Sony owns live action Spider-Man.
Which maybe Disney Marvel already has that deal with FOX, as both X-Men and Fantastic Four have shown up on both Ultimate Spider-Man and the Avengers cartoons.
How come Disney Marvel didn’t make their first animated film, Pet Avengers, is beyond me. Or why they choose Big Hero Six. Like their legion of fans had to be awoken from 1998, and told the news, and then had to tell them that they have to wait three more years. Can Sunfire even be in that movie?
I am sure that Chris Eliopoulos would love to have a giant truck of money be dumped on his front door, and he deserves it too! But maybe just write him a check. The marketing, action figures and plush animals alone will make the film’s budget back. And sure, I just want this film so I can have a plush Lockheed, but who doesn’t!?!
Back to the Shadow and Flame adaption, you will also have to briefy explain away the Ogun plot from Kitty Pryde and Wolverine. Which the reason why we can’t make that movie is that I’m sure FOX has a limited amount of times they use Jackman as a lead as that character. But they could probably do all of his scenes in a week, as he is there for the big moments, but Kitty carries the plot.
In Shadow and Flame, they could swap ou Silver Samurai, or go the James Bond route and tell the audience, it is a different guy now, and that is that.
They could make two movies, Kitty Pryde and Wolverine; and Shadow and Flame, that would be awesome, plus it would work as a trilogy and they are all sequels to each other and the Wolverine film. It all works out. Just throw Lockheed into Kitty Pryde and Wolverine, to make that movie even better, plus, they are going to make changes regardless, might as well make a change that would get people excited.
