This week, there is a special issue of Entertainment Weekly on newsstands, featuring X-Men: Apocalypse and it’s cast. Among those, Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique. She has been a fan favorite, since dawning the blue body paint in X-Men: First Class. Taking over the role for Rebecca Romijn, who started the role in the original X-Men movie. Lawrence hasn’t decided on whether or not she would return to the franchise, should it continue, which, I personally believe, it will. I believe there will be a collabo movie with the Fantastic Four, where Bryan Singer might possibly be the director (you can see more of that rumor HERE).
Lawrene told EW, “I love working with Bryan, and I love these movies,” she says. “It’s just the paint.” She was 20 when she signed on for X-Men: First Class, she says, and didn’t care about “fumes and toxins. Now I’m almost 25 and I’m like, ‘I can’t even pronounce this and that’s going in my nose? I’m breathing that?’” But when asked if there’s a chance she could do another, Lawrence says she’s not closing the door entirely. “There is hope,” she says. “I don’t want to not be asked.” In the meantime, it’s best not to ask the filmmakers about her possible departure. They’ve got more pressing matters to deal with. “I just wanna finish this movie and then figure out the next one,” says writer-producer Simon Kinberg. “But I do think about the next chapters of these stories. My hope is we can bring these guys back. And if we didn’t then I would adjust.”
