We love Jennifer Lawrence in the role of Mystique. She totally has us forgetting about that other actress who played her in the first few X-Men movies. Although she’s a huge, Oscar-winning star, Lawrence continues to enjoy the passion of performing in the ensemble that is the X-Men universe.
She killed it as Mystique in X-Men: First Class, and judging by the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer, she has an even broader role in this next X-Men film from Bryan Singer. But, what if we were to suggest that Mystique strike out on her own?
Why should Wolverine have all the fun in the solo movie department?
As we picked up our newest issue of Entertainment Weekly, there she was on the cover in all her blue make-up glory -- and inside, an X-Men producer addressed this very issue.
"I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there's so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo," producer Lauren Shuler Donner said.
In fact, Donner admitted that Mystique is not the only character in the X-Men universe to potentially have his or her own film, or even franchise.
"There was a regime (at the studio) that didn't see the worth in (spin-offs), and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we're going to do right by it. I'd like to do Gambit. I'd like to do Deadpool. We'll see. There's a lot of really great characters."
All those X-Men solo mutant movies sound good to us!
In the meantime, check out Lawrence in action and watch X-Men: First Class online.
