There has been a lot of talk about the future of the X-Men movie franchise, following the release of the new film X-Men: Apocalypse, with a number of the stars of the film seeing their contracts coming to an end. One such star is the beautiful and talented Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the role of Mystique in the movies, and now there have been some new suggestions about her future.
Director Bryan Singer has been giving his take on the future of the X-Men franchise, when he suggested that we could well see a Mystique solo movie in the near future, or at least we should. However, Bryan did also suggest that a Mystique solo movie could still happen without Jennifer Lawrence being involved, although we are sure fans would much prefer to have the actress back.
Singer explained, "[It's my] kind of my homage to the Age Of Apocalypse comic - everyone sort of switches roles. Obviously I didn't tell that full story, but people's sides are switched, alliances are changed. I think [Mystique's] right for [a standalone], whether it's Jennifer or not."
He added, "She has this different view of the world: Xavier can get into Cerebro and look at the world but he'd rather just teach classes and see the beauty of mutants and humans co-existing in his mansion in Westchester. Along comes Raven with a reality check on the state of the world. It opens up a lot of avenues."
With that in mind, there have been many fans who have been critical of the performance of Jennifer Lawrence in X-Men: Apocalypse, with many suggesting that the actress is performing within herself and is capable of so much more. We guess we will just have to wait and see what the future holds for Mystique.
