Jennifer Lawrence is pretty popular these days. If she’s not turning in Oscar worthy performances, than she’s duel wielding huge franchises like Hunger Games or X-Men. So it’s little surprise that earlier when speaking to MTV, Lawrence had stated that she will be done with the X-Men after Apocalypse.
Lawrence confirmed in no uncertain terms that “Apocalypse” marks her final ride with the “X-Men” movies. “It is my last one, actually,” she said, with no further elaboration.
Well there you go. There were rumors of a “Mystique” spin-off but it looks like that’s never going to happen, at least with Lawrence. When Jennifer Lawrence appeared in X-Men: First Class she certainly wasn’t the rock star that she was today and I felt like the importance of “Mystique” was heightened because of the actress and not the character. Not that it’s a bad thing, another example is Wolverine being the most important thing ever in the X-Men movies because of Hugh Jackman.
