Ellen Page Is Keen On Playing Kitty Pryde Again

She played Kitty Pryde in "X-Men: The Last Stand," she'll play her again in the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past"--Now actress Ellen Page tells Vulture that she'd be happy to play her again… especially if writer/director Joss Whedon asked her to suit up.

Whedon suggested the idea of a Kitty spinoff movie starring Page back in 2009, but the studio wasn't interested. Should he ever come back to that idea (considering his other Marvel commitments--the chances are very slim), Still, Page says she'd be "so thrilled" to do it.

She adds:

"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."

Post production on the sequel is now underway on "X-Men: Days Of Future Past". The film hits screens May 23, 2014.

It's funny hearing her say this now when she almost passed on the role for being "too big" way back when.
