Jennifer Lawrence up for more X-Men so long as Fassbender and McAvoy are too

Jennifer Lawrence X-Men: Apocalypse

With the X-MEN contracts for James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence coming to an end with the upcoming X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, there's a question as to how many familiar faces will be back to continue on with the franchise. Jennifer Lawrence has had differing opinions on whether she'd return to the role of Mystique or not, first revealing that APOCALYPSE would be her last X-MEN film, then saying that she hadn't decided yet, and finally commenting that she's dying to come back for more.

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly recently, Lawrence said that she'd still love to come back but on the condition that James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender also return.

Fassbender and McAvoy and I were all talking, like, ‘Will you come back?’ ‘I dunno.’ ‘I’ll come back, if you come back.’ Fox should be terrified because the deal we made was like if one of us doesn’t come back, none of us are.

Although she seems fond of the franchise, Jennifer Lawrence has said that putting on the blue body paint for each of these movies isn't exactly her cup of tea. Lawrence also has the fortune of being one of the more steadily employed actors in Hollywood, and these X-MEN flicks take up quite a lot of time.

I would love to come back. I love the fans and I love the character. But then you realize how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is. I don’t know. I shouldn’t be that honest.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will hit theaters on May 27, 2016 and you can read a review from our Eric Walkuski own right here!

I can't stand Jennifer Lawrence. Huge ego and very obnoxious. She is horrible as Mystique.

I like how five years ago everyone admired Jennifer Lawrence as a new, talented, and cool gal. Now that she's everywhere, people can't stand her.

Her presence puts the X-MEN franchise in a weird place

When she was first cast as Mystique, Jennifer Lawrence was merely a talented newcomer who had made a couple of well-regarded movies. Now, she's an Oscar-winning A-lister who's second only to Scarlett Johansson as one of the most bankable actresses in Hollywood. That means Fox has to turn Mystique (a second-string villain character) into a sympathetic lead.
It makes financial sense for Fox to keep her, but it does weird things to the X-Men saga.

I always thought Mystique was used because her powers were a useful plot device. I hope this is their last one. With Jackman giving up Wolverine it's a perfect time to reboot this franchise.

I don't know why Fox would be terrified. If the next movie is set in the 90s then it will be ten years later. Of course they will look older. It is a perfect way to justify replacing the actors. Hell, anybody can replace Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique because she is a shape shifter. Personally, I would want to keep McAvoy because by shaving his head they are making him look older. If they had to they could replace McAvoy with Mark Strong. Easily. Mark Strong is 15 years older than James

Mark Strong is 15 years older than James McAvoy and 8 years younger than Patrick Stewart was back in 2000 when the original X-Men movie came out. I think the New Mutants movie is going to be set in present day so Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen could reprise their roles as Xavier and Magneto. There. Problem solved.

McAvoy = Win, Fassbender = Bigger Win, Jlaw = who the fuck cares. Mystique is not now or ever should have been a central focus of any Xmen movie. Xavier, Magneto absolutely. Hell Cyclops is a more central character to the Xmen than Mystique ever was, so I hate the fact that Jlaw's star power has turned a boring as fuck character into the focal point and leader of the Xmen. Its why i won't be paying to see this.

I'm still baffled as to why Mystique is the main character of the new X-Men movies.

Her character was important in the original Days of Future Past story line in the comics.

Even though I'm not the biggest fan of having Mystique being one of the more main characters in the last couple of films, I would like to see her reprise the role as long as she could. I just hope if she were to come back for more sequels that her character take a back seat for the overall upcoming character development of new characters like Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, etc.

Keep McAvoy and Hoult. Let the rest go. About time they do an X-Men movie without Magneto.

Fassbender is just as vital to this franchise as Magento as McAvoy is as Professor X. Can't have one without the other in my opinion.

They've done six movies with Magneto. Magneto didn't have quite so prominent a role in the X-Men comics.

Soloist, although Magneto is very important, he doesn't have to always be there. The X-Men lore has plenty of villains that are even more interesting than Magneto. It's like Singer has never read a comics where Magneto wasn't present.

To be honest

Its no secret I am not a fan of any of these shows keep having the same villains. I would hope they could come up with a storyline that does not have Mystique or Magneto. Lets explore other X-men characters good and bad and if you do your job right we wont miss them.
