When I found out they were adapting 'Days of Future Past' I was really excited that Ellen Page would get to headline an X-Men film. I know she definitely could have carried the film as well, and to suggest she couldn't is a bit unfair to her I think.
I was thinking about this, in a tangential sort of way, last weekend.
I could see Page in a modestly budgeted Pryde & Wisdom
film -- a super-hero spy caper. Not sure who would make a good Warren Ellis... err, I mean Pete Wisdom. Maybe Luke Evans?
is a success for Marvel, maybe Fox could counter with a Starjammers
Fox has a lot of characters at their disposal. They don't have to limit themselves to X-Men team movies.
