Juno star Ellen Page has said that she would love to star in a spinoff film of her X-Men character Kitty Pryde.

Page will reprise the role of Pryde in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past following her performance in X-Men: The Last Stand.

In an interview with Vulture, she responded to Avengers director Joss Whedon who said recently that he thinks Kitty's character should get a solo movie: "Well, I'm available! I love that. Kitty Pryde's awesome."

She added: "I'm super grateful to be the actress who's gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them.

"I would be so thrilled to play Kitty Pryde again. I really would."

She didn't find it difficult to return to playing Pryde years after X-Men: The Last Stand: "Maybe because the first one was so long ago, maybe because it was like an eight-year difference, but it didn't feel like there needed to be an adjustment period.

"Bryan [Singer], I don't know how he pulls off everything he does in a day. I really don't! He is really great with actors and really wants the truth of the performance to exist, to sort of elevate that kind of a film, which I feel he did with the first two X-Men movies.

"He was sort of the first to take that kind of a spectacle of film and tell a deeply, deeply human story."

X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on May 22, 2014.
