Jennifer Lawrence says she's "dying to come back" for more X-Men movies

03.30.2016

X-Men: Apocalypse Bryan Singer Jennifer Lawrence Evan Peters Nicholas Hoult Banner

Last year Jennifer Lawrence said X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will be her last X-Men flick before later saying that she hasn't decided yet if it will indeed be her final time playing Mystique. But it certainly sounds like the actress has made a decision, based on the comments she made during an interview with Empire.

While speaking to the magazine on the set of the upcoming comic book movie, Lawrence said “I am dying to come back. I love these movies, I love being in them. I love ensemble movies because it’s not on anyone’s shoulders."

Obviously this doesn't mean that Lawrence will definitely return for any future installments, however it does seem like she is open to the idea of reprising her role as the blue-skinned shapeshifter. X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will mark the end of the "First Class Trilogy," but Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy may have signed on for more mutant movies, and I'm sure Fox would also love to have Lawrence around for another X-Men film or two.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is due out on May 27, 2016.

J-Law: "I don't want to play Mystique any more."

Fox: "Fine. We're going to make Wolverine 3, Gambit, New Mutants and Deadpool 2 next and then later do some X-Men and X-Force movies."

J-Law: "I can't wait to do more X-Men movies."

Seriously, though, guys, tone down the comments. Two years ago, Jennifer Lawrence was dearly loved by horny fanboys everywhere and now people are turning on her as I predicted they would. People have such an intense love-hate relationship with major

Money, money, money!

She only wants to come back for more because Hunger Games is over and Joy flopped. She needs a new franchise to latch on to rack in some dough. She's terrible as Mystique.

This the perfect cast to throw in the faces of all the SJW's out there. A half naked women is actually getting old! and men, yes you heard it, men want the producers to focus on other characters. Ah the oppression.

But yes less Mystique please, she is cool when the story calls for her but if you want to wrap the whole movie around her just give her a franchise of her own.

God, no!

I love Jennifer Lawrence and I like Mystique but together, they just don't mix. Mystique is a good character when she's allowed to be a duplicitous bitch. The transformation from blue villain to non-blue hero is totally unwelcomed.

Let us practice healthy cynicism. Jennifer Lawrence needs to let us (potential entertainment consumers) "know" how great that X-Men: Apocalypse is going to be. Therefore, she would be unwise to disassociate herself with the X-Men franchise. Fox might feel that such action denigrates their product. So, of course, she is going to say "oh, what lovely movies are the X-films, and I love being part of them."

Potentially, she enjoys her Mystique role; perhaps, she does not. Like any professional,

Enough

Please stop. Please kill off Mystique. I don't mind the character, but she is way too much a focal point because of some actress. We're not going to see Xmen movies because of some actress playing Mystique. For the love of God, focus on the core characters that make up the team. I think I vomited in my mouth a little when I saw Mystique giving a pep talk to the Xmen. Ugh.

I would love to see her back (along with everyone else from First Class), but I would like to see her character take more of a backseat in the next couple of films and build up Cyclops, Jean, and Storm in the way that they were in the comics, and animated series.

I hope Fox realizes that people aren't flocking to theatres because Lawrence is Mystique. In the comics she was never the focal point, she was actually depicted way better in the first two X-Men movies. Considering Singer has said he's coming back after Apocalypse, I really hope they cater the story line with Cyclops establishing himself as the leader.

Hard pass on this one. I know studios would love to put Jennifer Lawrence front and centre on a movie poster so the audience will flock to theatres like junkies running over to their crack dealers going out of business sale. But they've taken this character too far. In First Class, when she was still just an up-and-comer, it worked to include Mystique as the movie was trying to show how the battle lines were drawn between Prof. X and Magneto. But the higher her star rose, the more Fox

But the higher her star rose, the more Fox wanted to use her in the X-Men films, which meant making Mystique (a relatively low-key to nothing character in the comics) the prominent character of the movies. After Apocalypse comes out, do they really need more of her character? Can we not start showcasing some of the classic characters we all grew up with?

Honestly, I'll never understand why they choose to make Mystique the main character for new X-Men movies. Jennifer Lawrence may be good in other movies but she's not that good as Mystique.

Please. No!

She's the worst part of the First Class movies. Sucks that since she's become such a big star that they think they should cater their stories around Mystique. Fucking Mystique!!! A secondary character, if anything.
