Last month, it was reported that Deadpool director Tim Miller is returning to the X-Men universe with a new film starring Kitty Pryde. Now, the movie has a screenwriter, and he’s no stranger to the Marvel Universe.
According to Deadline, Brian Michael Bendis will write the script for Miller’s X-Men project, which currently has the codename 143. (The Hollywood Reporter confirms that this is the same thing as the Kitty Pryde movie.) The codename is a reference to Uncanny X-Men #143, which was the first Pryde solo issue, depicting her battle with a demon in the X-mansion. However, it’s unknown if that’s the actual plot of the movie.
Bendis was one of Marvel’s most prolific comic book writers, penning many, many issues. He was also a co-creator for characters like Miles Morales and Jessica Jones. Most recently, Bendis switched over to DC Comics, where he will be writing the Superman comics.
