LOGAN Director James Mangold Says A Spin-Off Film For Dafne Keen's X-23 Is In The Scripting Stages

Though it sounds like it's very early days, director James Mangold has confirmed that a Logan spin-off focusing on Laura/X-23 (Dafne Keen) is officially in the works at 20th Century Fox. Check it out...

The popularity of young Dafne Keen's ferocious take on Laura in Logan meant a spin-off was pretty much bound to happen at some point, and now director James Mangold has confirmed that a solo X-23 adventure is indeed in the works.

Mangold, along with Hugh Jackman and producer Hutch Parker, sat down with THR to discuss Logan's Oscar chances, and provided an update on the status of the highly anticipated X-23 movie.

It seems the success of Wonder Woman may have been responsible for giving the project that little extra push towards development:


“Patty [Jenkins’] success with [Wonder Woman] only solidifies more for studios that there’s less to fear with a female protagonist,” says Mangold. “The more that keeps getting hit home, that ends up giving me more space turning around and going, ‘Well here we are with a female protagonist. That’s incredible. And what are we going to do with her?’ And that’s where we are with that [the Laura script] right now, dreaming.”

It sounds like they may not have even settled on a way to reintroduce the character yet, but many fans will be hoping to see Laura interact with the mutant characters of the main X-Men timeline.

Perhaps a certain time-travelling Deadpool 2 hard-case could work something out?
