X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) star Ellen Page has said she would love a spinoff film for her character Kitty Pryde.
Page originally played Pryde in X-Men: The Last Stand and will reprise her franchise role along with Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry in director Bryan Singer's Days of Future Past sequel.
The actress recently discussed Avengers director Joss Whedon's love of the Kitty Pryde character, and his suggestion that she deserves a solo movie.
"Well, I'm available! I love that. Kitty Pryde's awesome," Page told Vulture.
She continued: "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."
Page also discussed the process of revisiting Kitty Pryde several years after shooting X-Men: The Last Stand.
"Maybe because the first one was so long ago, maybe because it was like an eight-year difference, but it didn't feel like there needed to be an adjustment period," she explained.
"Bryan, I don't know how he pulls off everything he does in a day. I really don't! He is really great with actors and really wants the truth of the performance to exist, to sort of elevate that kind of a film, which I feel he did with the first two X-Men movies."
"He was sort of the first to take that kind of a spectacle of film and tell a deeply, deeply human story."
Page previously revealed that she never expected to be reprising the role of Kitty Pryde in the next X-Men film.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will debut on May 22, 2014 in the UK and on May 23 in the US.
