Amid acquisition talks going on, 20th Century Fox is not showing any signs of slowing down. The film studio is moving forward with its already set X-Men franchise movie plans, including a possible Kitty Pryde movie. News of a Kitty Pryde movie in works came to light back in February.
The X-Men phase-shifting mutant Kitty Pryde aka Shadowcat has a longstanding relationship with Colossus in the comic book storyline, hooking up and breaking up multiple times. So, it is likely that Colossus would appear in a movie based on Shadowcat if it ever gets made.
During a recent interview with Comic Book at the San Diego Comic-Con 2018 event, actor Stefan Kapicic, who plays Colossus in the Deadpool franchise, expressed his desire to feature in the Kitty Pryde movie reprising his role of Colossus. Kapicic added that he would also like to Colossus reuniting with his sister Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik, on the big screen.
“I would love, of course, Colossus to see Kitty Pryde in this version and of course I would love to see Colossus and Illyana, Magik, his sister, together in one of the future [movies],” Kapicic said. “That’s played by Anya-Taylor Joy [in The New Mutants], and I’m really a huge fan of her work. I think she’s perfect for playing Colossus’ sister.”
Kapicic said that he has full faith in Deadpool director Tim Miller who is helming the Kitty Pryde movie.
“We’ll see, that’s just a project that’s, as I know, it’s in development. I love [Deadpool director] Tim Miller and I love how this guy works, so whatever he touches it becomes really amazing,” the Deadpool actor said. “He’s working on Terminator right now, so I believe it’s going to be an amazing Terminator. Then again, I trust Tim. Whatever he decides to do regarding that with the X-Men franchise, I think that’s going to be a great success.”
The Colossus actor said that a Kitty Pryde movie without Colossus cannot be imagined, so, it is highly likely that fans will get to see the two mutants sharing screen space together in the upcoming movie.
“And it depends on the storyline, but Kitty Pryde without Colossus… it’s tough,” Kapicic said. “I think there’s a huge possibility you’re going to see Colossus and Kitty Pryde.”
Miller’s X-Men project penned by prolific comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis is currently being worked upon under the working title 143.
