Jennifer Lawrence may not return for another “X-Men” film. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actress blamed the body paint she used for her role of Mystique.
“It’s just the paint [fumes],” she said. “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,' ” she said. She also added she loves working with the director Bryan Singer and loves working in X-Men films and that is why she not is entirely rejecting the idea of doing another X-Men film. “I don’t want to not be asked,” she added.
Lawrence will be seen as Mystique in the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse.” It is not known how her character will progress, but from the recently released pictures, she may have a sequence with Quicksilver(Evan Peters). Also, she will sport a new black and gray costume.
In the comics, Mystique is born with superhuman abilities. She is a shape shifter and can mimic the appearance and voice of any person. Her natural appearance includes blue skin and yellow eyes and she is an X-Men foe. She is understood to be more than 100-years-old and is the mother of Nightcrawler. She also has an adopted daughter, Rogue. She abandons Nightcrawler but nurtures and raises Rogue.
Meanwhile, it is not confirmed if the characters of “X-men: Apocalypse” will return in future X-Men films. Screenwriter and producer Bryan Singer, hopes to bring back the characters but he is not entirely sure. “I just wanna finish this movie and then figure out the next one. 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,” he said.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” opens May 27, 2016. It also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Josh Helman, Lana Condor and Ben Hardy.
