Sophie Turner has said that she “would kill” to return to her X-Men role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Game of Thrones star debuted as telepathic mutant Jean Grey in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, taking over the role played by Famke Janssen in the original trilogy of films.
Throwing the film series further into doubt is Disney’s recent purchase of the X-Men characters as part of their 20th Century Fox acquisition, sparking talk that they could soon join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Speaking to Variety, Turner said: “I don’t even know what the deal is, whether Disney wants to continue on the X-Men journey. I would always be down to go back to that character and that cast and that experience. We had the best time on those movies. I would kill to go back.”
Turner’s two X-Men films featured an ensemble of Hollywood A-listers including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.
