Dark ‘X-Men’ Spinoffs Continuing With Kitty Pryde

http://bloody-disgusting.com/?s=GambitBeing that Wolverine was always my favorite comic character, I’ve always enjoyed seeing him bond and act as a father figure to various characters, including Elsie-Dee, Jubilee, and especially Kitty Pryde. The latter is getting her own movie, accord to THR, who writes that Deadpool director Tim Miller and Brian Michael Bendis, one of the biggest authors in the comic book world, are teaming for the next X-Men spinoff.

The duo are developing a project called 143, which will be set in the X-Men universe. Bendis, who wrote various “X-Men” comics during his almost 20 years at Marvel, will write the script, while Miller will direct.

143 is a code name for the project which sources say will focus on the character Kitty Pryde, a mutant who can phase through objects. The character was played by Ellen Page in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand and 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. 

The project’s code name is a reference to Uncanny X-Men No. 143, one of the earliest Pryde stories and her first solo adventure in which she faces a demon alone in the X-Mansion. The issue, by her creators Chris Claremont and John Byrne, was published in 1981.

This is the next of the dark X-Men spinoffs, following New Mutants (Feb. 22, 2019) and the forthcoming Gambit, which is in pre-production with Channing Tatum starring.
