There was a time when Fox had a full load of X-Men solo films planned, Wolverine which made it twice, Magneto which eventually turned into First Class, and talks of Deadpool and Gambit films. With the franchise heating back up, Deadpool and Gambit are being talked about again and even possibly a Mystique film with Jennifer Lawrence.
X-Men producer Lauren Donner had this to say recently “There was a regime [at the studio] that didn’t see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we’re going to do right by it. I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters.”
X-Men producer and writer also had this to say: “I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there’s so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo.”
So what do you think of the possibilities so far? Who do you want to see given the solo treatment?
