There's another X-Men horror film coming and the plot sounds fantastic

There's another X-Men horror film coming and the plot sounds fantastic

For starters, back in January Collider reported that Tim Miller was rumored to direct a movie centering on Kitty Pryde of the X-Men. According to Deadline, Deadpool director Tim Miller and acclaimed comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis were teamed by Fox to develop an X-Men film, titled 143. During his time at Marvel, Bendis was tapped to write the now-integral post-credits scene to 2008's Iron Man which initiated the integrated Marvel Cinematic Universe, and also served as part of Marvel Studios' Marvel Creative Committee from 2008 to 2015. This is a reference to 1981's Uncanny X-Men #143, which contains Kitty Pryde's first solo adventure in the comics.

143 will be a return for Bendis to X-Men characters; his previous comics work in the franchise includes the New Avengers/X-Men crossover, House of M, as well as All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men.

Kitty Pryde has already appeared in a number of the X-Men movies, most notably as played by Ellen Page in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, but she also made small cameos in Bryan Singer's earlier films, played by Sumela Kay and Katie Stuart.

This isn't the first we've heard of a potential Kitty Pryde movie. He recently transitioned to DC Comics, but found plenty of success at Marvel, including the creation of the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man. While his long history with Marvel characters does seem to make him a natural fit for this project, I'm really disappointed that they didn't choose a woman for either the director or the screenwriter of this film.




Kitty Pryde is a fan favorite character.

Of course, as I wrote when this movie was first announced, the Disney-Fox merger will nearly inevitably complicate this film's journey to production.

As for the movie, there's virtually no info, other than it is now operating under the codename of "143".

But what do you all think?
