The X-Men franchise appears to be firing on all cylinders. With Apocalypse, Gambit, Deadpool, and the final Wolverine movie coming soon, it’s not far to surmise that many more mutant movies could be heading our way.
In an interview with IGN, Shawn Ashmore (who played Iceman in four of the X-Men movies) was asked if he’d be up for doing a Iceman solo film:
“An Iceman solo movie? If Fox would make it then I would do it. I love that character, I love the Marvel universe, especially the last couple of films. I was so excited about Days of Future Past when I heard about that – reading the script, realising the script – it was so exciting for me, so if that was ever an opportunity? Absolutely.”
He did note however that while it would be awesome, a bunch of solo films may not be what’s best for the X-Men franchise:
“The other thing about the X-Men is I think is that they work best as a team” he explained. “What I always loved about the X-Men is that it wasn’t about solo characters. I think that the characters really come to life when you put them in the context of the school with Xavier, with the team – that’s what I always loved about the X-Men. So I’m not sure if that would ever happen. It would be exciting if it did, but there is something to be said about the team.”
