Jennifer Lawrence broke the news this week that the next X-Men movie, titled Apocalypse, will be her last of the film franchise. J. Law, as you may know, plays the mutant Mystique / Raven Darkhölme in the current franchise but after the release of X-Men: Apocalypse she won’t appear in any other X-Men Movies:
“It is my last one, actually, yes.”
There were rumors that she might star in her own Mystique movie spin-off but her statement seems to deny that that will happen. This does make sense. Now that Jennifer is an Academy Award-winning actress, she can be done with the kiddie movies and work exclusively in more serious roles. She will likely star in every David O. Russell movie that that man makes from here on out so … yes, I understand. Still, it’ll be sad once she leaves the role. J. Law makes an excellent Mystique, as is evidenced by the photos collected in this gallery. Who ever slips into the latex and blue paint next will have some very big shoes to fill.
