Secret X-Men Movie 143 Gets Deadpool Director Tim Miller

20th Century Fox is expanding its X-Men franchise even further, with a secret project called Dark Phoenix story that is being adapted into the X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie, and Days of Future Past, which was turned into the 2014 movie X-Men: Days of Future Past. There was an Uncanny X-Men Issue #143, and, when coupled with a report from January, could mean that this project is actually a Kitty Pryde movie.

We reported in January that director Tim Miller was developing a Kitty Pryde movie, although no further details were given. While Kitty Pryde, a mutant who has the ability to become intangible and pass her body through physical objects, debuted in X-Men #129, she was the main character in X-Men #143, which was published in March 1981. The story followed Kitty Pryde who was alone in the X-Mansion over Christmas, as she is forced to deal with the N’Garai Demon, a creature which made its X-Men comics debut in that issue. While there is no confirmation that this project could be an adaptation of X-Men #143, it certainly is interesting, considering this news coupled with the rumor from last month.

20th Century Fox was originally set to release three X-Men movies this year, but the studio gave The New Mutants a new 2019 release date, pushing it almost an entire year, from April 13, 2018 to February 22, 2019. The studio also moved up Deadpool 2 a few weeks from June 1 to May 18, although X-Men: Dark Phoenix will stay put in its November 2, 2018 date. Gambit was also pushed from February 14, 2019 to June 7, 2019. It’s possible the studio could slot this project into a late 2019 date, although there isn’t any indication as to when this project could be ready to start production.

Tim Miller is currently in pre-production on the latest Terminator movie for Paramount Pictures, which original Terminator director James Cameron is shepherding. The filmmaker will get the rights back to the entire Terminator franchise in 2019, 35 years after his groundbreaking 1984 film The Terminator. Brian Michael Bendis is best known for creating iconic Marvel characters like Miles Morales and Jessica Jones, and while he recently switched to DC Comics, this mystery movie will mark his return to the Marvel fray.
