Hollywood A-lister Jennifer Lawrence has confirmed that she is done portraying the role of Mystique in the latest ‘X-Men’ film trilogy. The actress made the reveal during a MTV interview at the premiere of her latest film, ‘Serena.’
‘X-Men: Apocolypse’ is set to hit theaters next spring, but Lawrence quietly announced that ‘Apocolypse’ will be her “last one.” Lawrence took over the role as Mystique in the ‘Days of Future Past’ film sequence, dominating the role as a younger, more innocent version of the blue-skinned mutant. The role of “older” Mystique was portrayed by model and actress Rebecca Romijn. Rumors had been abundant that Lawrence would star in a Mystique spin-off, but those rumors were pretty well quashed with Lawrence’s simple response during the interview.
Fans at Anastasia Date note that Lawrence did not elaborate further on her reason for her departure from the series or about the rumored spin-off film.
Is this an indication that the younger ‘X-Men’ stars, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender, could see their famed roles on the chopping block soon? While there has been no confirmation that McAvoy, Hoult, and Fassbender will see their on-screen portrayals come to an end, Lawrence gushed about a modification to her role early this month.
“I get to wear a bodysuit for ‘Apocalypse!” Lawrence happily reported. “No CG.”
The actress originally underwent six to seven hours of make-up application per day while filming ‘X-Men: First Class.’
