James Mangold hints that an X-23 script is in development

Dafne Keen as Laura/X-23 in 'Logan'

Following the behemoth success of Logan earlier this year (and its cliffhanger-is ending) fans have been wondering what was next for Laura/X-23 (Dafne Keen). Well in a new interview with THR director James Mangold has touched on the future of the character.

Touching on Patty Jenkins success with Wonder Woman the he segues in to how this has opened the door for further female-fronted comic book movies:

“Patty’s success with that film 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.”

Would a film, hopefully starring Dafne Keen in the role once again, be something you would be interested in seeing? Is that the right direction for the Wolverine franchise to move if it is to continue?

Let us know…
