The Rise of Shadowcat?

With the next X-Men film being titled Days of Future Past, there are a few questions that are going to come up. Mainly, how closely will it follow the original plotline of the legendary story from the comics? It seems pretty close. The older and younger version of Professor X and Magneto will be represented by their respective actors. And of course Hugh Jackman will be Wolverine. In the comic, it was Kitty who was sent back in time to change the future. So where does all this stand?

It appears we will get the story we are hoping for. Ellen Page has been confirmed to reprise her role and it has already been confirmed that time travel will play a big role in the film. So will this mean her role, as Kitty, will be brought more into the spotlight? I hope so. Mark Miller, Fox's Marvel Consultant did say that "Kitty Pryde fans will not be disappointed." We only got to see a little of what Page could do with the character in X-Men: The Last Stand when she took over the role. She did very well with the limited amount of screen time she had. The Last Stand and Inception proved that Page could step out of the world of indie films and handle the weight of Hollywood sci-fi blockbusters. Now she may have the chance to prove that she can lead one. So, Ellen Page, sci-fi action star?
