Jennifer Lawrence says X-Men: Apocalypse will be her last film as Mystique

03.23.2015

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is beginning to sound more and more fitting as this may be the last entry in the rebooted franchise for several of the main cast. Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence have huge careers that are quickly expanding past the superhero franchise they helped resurrect, but they are both returning to see the arc continue through the next film in the series. Whether Jennifer Lawrence would return after X-MEN: APOCALYPSE was never certain, it seemed unlikely, and now we have confirmation.

In a red carpet interview with MTV for her film SERENA, Lawrence was asked if the movie would be her last X-MEN film to which she gave a concrete yes. What this means for the fate of her character is still unknown but I wouldn't rule out a possible death for her or Fassbender's Magneto if Bryan Singer truly anticipates wrapping up the franchise. It could also be possible to put the two characters on the back-burner and allow James McAvoy and the heroic team take center stage against some other foes. There has yet to be an X-MEN film without Magento (aside from the WOLVERINE spin-offs).

What new characters will be introduced beyond X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is unknown but with a vast array of foes in the Marvel Comic team's history, I don't think there would be much difficulty in continuing beyond this film if the studio sees fit. With the films raking in tons of money, I am pretty sure we won't have to wait long for a fourth film in the franchise since Fox has already staked out a 2018 date.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE hits theaters on May 27, 2016.

Sounds about right

This trilogy wraps up the prequels, then ala Star Wars they can go back to present time, or near future

Probably a little famous to be getting painted blue now - fair enough.
Still, without this and Hunger Games to keep her in the spotlight, it'll be make or break time for her.
Seems talented enough to do well without megabudget franchises though.

Not surprised

Deadpool is the beginning of a new X-Force franchise. They already said that Colossus will be in Deadpool. Does that mean he will be in X-Force?

X-Force has a lot of potential as a new franchise: they could have Deadpool, Cable, Copycat, Domino, Gambit, Angel, Iceman, Rogue, Madrox, Calisto, Psylocke (because X-Men 3 didn't happen so she didn't die), Colossus, Kitty, Pyro, Siren, Warpath, Sunspot, Blink, Bishop, Shatterstar, Canonball, Feral, Psyche (Danielle Moonstar), Wolfsbane, etc.

Most of them have already been introduced in the movies.

I do wonder what will happen after X-Men: Apocalypse, however. What if the movie is a big hit? I can see Fox going ahead with the long rumored X-Men TV series. What would be the point of casting all those new actors and not optioning them for future movies and TV? They could have Beast, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Havok, Storm, Nightcrawler, Toad, Polaris, Dazzler, Longshot, etc. They would have to explain where Xavier and Magneto are after X-Men: Apocalypse. If the TV series is a success then they could bring back Xavier and Magneto for another movie.

They've referred to this cast as being part of a "trilogy" many times so this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

It's Mystique.....

She can be any actress she wants because the Jennifer Lawrence form was always just camouflage. Fassbender is brilliant and I'd watch him play Magneto forever, but there's nothing wrong with telling other stories. At some point they have to branch out away from the core characters. Better to do that within the framework than to reboot yet again....

I think most of the First Class cast will be out after Apocalypse. You know, this new movie take place in the 80s and the first X-Men (with old Charles and old Eric) was released in 2000, and we can suppose it take place that year. So this could fit nicely with both characters like 20 years younger than the actors in X1. Then comes the third Wolvie movie, and then FOX can relaunch the saga with other mutants (like Gambit Tatum of course). Maybe McAvoy can return for another, but I think after

I still want to see the cast take on Mr. Sinister before the universe is wrapped up.

As much as I enjoyed her portrayal, I would be fine with this being her last one or if she sat the next couple of films of the side. The X-Men Universe is so vast and various with different mutants and characters that it would be a shame not to mix the lineup a bit more and breathe more life into this franchise with different mutants we haven't seen yet or haven't been written well thus far (ie Cyclops).

I'd rather watch a Mystique movie starring Jennifer Lawrence, than what I know so far about Wonder Woman.

She was waisted in DOFP. But her character isn't necessary for an X film. Kill off Magneto? That's crazy. That would be stupid. And, they will make more X men films. I guarantee it.

I'm currently reading Grant Morrisons run which I hear ended with Wolverine flat out cutting Magneto's head the fuck off. I think it would be cool for them to take it into the future next and show the charecters way down the line.

I'm not that surprised...

Does this mean her slate will be open for to be cast as Captain Marvel now? (I know a few fanboys who would be more than happy with that)
