In response, Ellen Page said, "I have heard that yeah! Well, I'm available! [Laughs.] I love that. Kitty Pryde's awesome. I'm super grateful to be the actress who's gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them. I would be so thrilled to play Kitty Pryde again. I really would."
Though Joss Whedon is currently working for Marvel/Disney, he has said that he'd be interested in making a solo Shadowcat film.
The film will start filming in Montreal in May 2017.
