Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique Might Get an 'X-Men' Spin-off Film!

Jennifer Lawrence will be reprising her role as a young Mystique in the upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, but get ready for maybe even more of her blue character as she might get her own spin-off!

“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,” X-Men: First Class writer-producer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly.

Jennifer will also likely appear in the next mutant movie X-Men: Apocalypse, which already has a release date of May 27, 2016.

    soy fanatico de Xmen desde niƱo y mystique nunca fue un personaje relevante en la historia de xmen esta bien que Jlaw sea popular y todo pero pienso que hay otros personajes que merecen su propia historia por ejemplo gambito ahi hay mucha tela que cortar

  • Ava

    And 1,2,3 .. The haters will infest .. She overated, so sucks, she awful, let the hating begin …. But seriously she must be really good if that’s what the writer is saying , not even the director or prodcer who has a take in a spin off.

  • pup

    Anything she’s in, would be amazing.

  • Caleb

    I have liked every movie she’s done that I’ve seen so far so if she’s as good as Mystique as she is as Everdeen , damn I’ll go see her in a spin off.

  • Sober

    hate her nose.

  • dee

    The make-up is pathetic! The costumes, and make up for this movie are laughable. I am a long time X-men fan, and I have zero interest in this movie. I wish they had rebooted it.

  • sharptonsbriefcase

    Sounds like a producer’s wishlist. Is the studio willing to pony up for her, and does she want to do it?

  • Jane

    I’m a fan, but I think she should take a career hiatus or at least take a break from blockbuster related films. She’s popular and beloved now, but in the future this could potentially hurt her image because of overexposure. This isn’t an issue with men, but for some odd reason women get a beating for working a lot in Hollywood.

  • Elle

    Why? It couldn’t be for the story. It has to be for the money.

  • Domi

    there are other character much more interesting than mistique, but i guess its because of her popularity rigth now

  • Gretchen

    she’s said she wants to take a break after THG is over so this is prob just wishful thinking rn

  • sweetness

    YES! This is a total win for her!

  • Eric

    Love her, but not as Mystique. Don’t do it Jen!

  • Celeb Spy

    They need to just stop. I stopped watching after the first three films in the franchise. Sam thing over and over again. How much can you wring out of the old ‘I don’t fit in but my superpowers make me special’? All those YA films now make me cringe! Infantile narratives.

  • really ??

    . Please … it’s not about talent .. it’s about MONEY .. she won an oscar , she’s all over the place , slightly overrated in my opinion , but i still like her . It’s never a good think to saturate the market , it usually backfires . Hope it doesn’t happened !

  • toni

    Rebecca Romijn will always be Mystique. She looks better and she acted it better. She is tall and slinky and elegant and Lawrence is just an awkward okay actress who got very very lucky.

  • LaCroix

    Mystique’s character in the comics is awesome, but Lawrence is just non sexy to me.. Romijn played Mystique closer to the comics as I remember her.. Lawrence is a decent actress, but she does not pull off sex appeal..

  • Soe

    @LaCroix: Agree with you just look at that photo of her above like a deer stuck in headlights so very not sexy! every shot of Romijn oozed sex appeal!

  • meh

    Romijn owned mystique. they’re doing this cause of jens popularity, but I think it’s best for her to take a break, she has a lot of movies on her plate as is. sometimes this strategy backfires on actresses in the long run, especially when you’re noticed more as an already successful celebrity than a true character actor, I feel like male actors have more room to transform into a variety of different characters which makes them more likeable to audiences. mystique was never that interesting in the comics, there’s other characters with more depth of a backstory. all in all they’ve done too many x-men movies with the same theme. even Hugh jackman is getting overexposed with those wolverine movies and I love Hugh.

  • Domino

    @Ava: No honey, she’s not good. She’s a product consumed by teens like you who don’t know better, and producers like earning money and milking franchises.

  • Sky

    What? She gets a spin-off? Don’t hate me, but the only reason why MYSTIQUE is getting a spin-off is because Lawrence is a big star. If Rebecca Romjin or other actress portrayed her people wouldn’t even care about her character. I love Mystique and I like the way both Rebecca and Jen played her, but seriously? This is just a lame way to make more money. So Mystique is getting a spin-off….after Wolverine…and before Magneto or Cyclops or Storm….seriously?

  • Ha

    Yeah, the actress Romjin (I don’t know how to spell her name) in the original Xmen movies played the character much better. She was sexy and owned it, it was much closer to the comics Mystique. Lawrence is not sexy. She’s a try hard. I don’t get the hype for her right now. She’s not that great of an actress in my opinion. I really don’t get it. I’m no hater but that would suck!

  • Are y’all serious!??

    I would be more interested in seeing a spin-off about STORM!!! Seriously, Mystique is not that interesting of character. I got bored in the First Class movie when it was all about her ugh.

  • storm


  • High

    she’s ugly

  • bleh

    @Ha: what i noticed in every movie that jen is in (x-men or any of O. Russell’s movies with her), the media deliberately tries to sell her as sexy and when you know that the media is pushing it with the image, half of the people get turned off by it because they see through the media hype and the other half are brainwashed teenagers that are obsessed with jen. i prefer actresses that ooze sensuality without the media hyping it tenfold, angelina jolie and charlize theron are stunning, seductive women but when they were in their heyday in their 20′s, the media didn’t do nearly the amount of PR coverage to sell them as sexy compared to jen and audiences still found them to be some of the most alluring women in the world. im not buying the sexy jen image, sorry.

  • Bio

    @bleh: all three have something in common! they had nose jobs!

  • kerry

    I am not a huge Jennifer Lawrence fan, but I can’t see her being pleased about this. I suspect the film company has her in a multi-film contract and is rubbing their hands together at the thought of the money they can make out of her, bearing in mind she was pretty much unknown when they signed her up. She is over exposed and needs to slow down and focus on more demanding, but age appropriate roles.

  • M.

    Yes!…I’d watch the hell out of anything Jennifer Lawrence stars in…she’s an awesome actress and hot as hell.

  • M.

    @Domino: No, honey….Jennifer Lawrence is that amazing…critically acclaimed, OSCAR winning and hotter than Philadelphia in August. Oh, and this is majority opinion….honey.

  • M.

    @bleh: Yeah, right…the media didn’t hype Angelina Jolie (remember Tomb Raider???). Jolie played the “I’m so hot card” into the ground and relied on her looks over actual acting. Love Theron and Jennifer Lawrence…actual actresses and both are hot.

  • um

    @M.: you clearly didn’t see Jolie’s movies before tomb raider cemented her as a sex symbol – Girl Interrupted, Gia, and others that she was critically acclaimed in and won an actual oscar for and she was genuinely really good in those movies. Jen is not on Charlize’s level, Charlize has much more versatility as an actress than Jen and Charlize and Angie have more exotic looking faces while Jen has a girl next door look. I’d prefer Charlize as mystique over Jen tbh, that would have been much better casting after romijn but they wanted a young mystique cause of the storyline.

  • kara85


    huh? when did the media ever hype Jennifer Lawrence as sexy, as goofy and funny and relatable yes but sexy?
    sure she won a couple of polls of sexiest women on the internet but that is hardly a general consensus, people have different taste and opinions of what they consider sexy, it’s not always the superficial stuff, sometimes people loves her personality and find it sexy

    what gives you the right or arrogance to think that just because you find certain people like Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron sexy that other people can’t find other people sexy.JMO.

  • nadirah

    @ high You are ugly you roach!

  • nadirah

    You’re whole face is ugly @Sober!

  • Saw Binnya

    Lawrence is fat, ugly, and that’s why she got compared with sexy Rebecca. Lawrence should not have been chosen to be Mystique.

  • Kristin

    So I love her as a younger Mystique but they’ve covered so much about her that I don’t see it being very interesting and probably have a lot of inconsistencies. I know very little about Storm from just watching the movies. I really don’t think they would have to pony up to get her to join… ‘specially with how much they make on these movies.
