LOGAN Star Dafne Keen Confirms Early X-23 Spinoff Plans; Hopes To Reprise The Role At Some Point

LOGAN Star Dafne Keen Confirms Early X-23 Spinoff Plans; Hopes To Reprise The Role At Some Point

Though it's looking increasingly unlikely that we'll see Dafne Keen's take on X-23 again, the Logan star has confirmed that there were tentative plans for a spinoff in place before the Disney/Fox merger.

After Dafne Keen's acclaimed performance as Laura is 2017's Logan, it was generally assumed that the young actress would get the opportunity to reprise the role down the line. Of course, that was before Disney acquired 20th Century Fox's assets in last year's highly publicised takeover.

We had heard rumblings that tentative plans were in place for X-23 to return, either in a Logan spinoff or as part of another X-Men project (X-Force seemed the safest bet), and Keen has now confirmed that the idea was on the table.

“I got told by some people at Fox that there might be another one, but this was ages ago when we were filming, and they haven't contacted me ever again,” the His Dark Materials star revealed to Elle, before adding that she is still hoping for a chance to don the claws again.

“I feel like we're just at the beginning, there’s more to be told, and it's a relay race. I come into play when they've already written and done pre-production and decided on doing the film, so as soon as they say, ‘go,’ I'll happily go whenever.”

Marvel Studios is expected to reboot the X-Men and all associated characters at some point over the next couple of years, so the chances of Keen being asked back seem slim. Then again, we recently got confirmation that Ryan Reynolds will be suiting-up as Deadpool again under the Disney banner, so you never know!
