LOGAN Star Dafne Keen Is More Likely To Return For An X-23 Solo Outing Than One Of The X-MEN Movies

Following the events of Logan, most of us assumed we'd be seeing X-23 (Dafne Keen) again as part of an ensemble film, but it sounds like the studio has other plans for the fan-favorite character...

It's pretty much a given that we'll be seeing Logan actress Dafne Keen reprise the role of Laura/X-23 at some point, but it may not be in the capacity most fans would expect. It was generally assumed that 20th Century Fox would now come up with a way to reintroduce the character as part of either X-Force or The New Mutants, but it sounds like the studio has other plans.

During an interview with IGN, producer Hutch Parker suggested that any current conversations regarding Laura are leaning more towards a solo adventure for the ferocious young mutant:

"Yeah, I mean, look -- I don't know definitively, but in terms of the stuff we've been talking about, it's not sort of slipping her into the background of another movie. It's looking at that character, which is a great character and has a pretty interesting run within the comics, to find a story that we think she could carry or certainly be kind of majorly significant within.

That's the only kind of thing that Jim as a storyteller, a filmmaker… that's the way his sort of process works. And the way his mind works in terms of what he would aspire to. Which isn’t to say that the studio couldn’t have a conversation about something else, but the one that we've been kind of discussing loosely and kicking around is more likely to be its own film."


Does this mean we'll see X-23 continue her journey post Logan? One would assume the ultimate goal is to eventually find a way to sync up the timelines and have Laura be a part of the main X-Men saga, but who knows - perhaps the studio is happy to hold off on that for the time being and follow her adventures in 2029 for a while longer.

What do you guys think the best course of action is? Let us know in the usual place.
