Jennifer Lawrence isn’t sure if she’d return as Mystique in future X-Men films


Fox has been making a lot of money off of the X-Men films. It’s a successful franchise with different actors rotating in and out. Jennifer Lawrence has been a major player in the recent films, and her three-picture deal ends with X-Men: Apocalypse. Will she consider reprising her role as Raven/Mystique in future X-Men movies? In an interview with EW, it sounds like she’s ready to move on.

“[Co-stars Michael] Fassbender and [James] McAvoy and I were all talking,” she said. “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.”

She has had a complaint about playing Mystique, and that’s with the full-body makeup process.

“You go in and you realize you’re rock bottom and like this sucks and it could not suck more,” Lawrence said.

She’s still grateful for the fans and the character, but what’s more important to her is time.

“I would love to come back,” she said. “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.”

Do you think she should return as Mystique?
