Jennifer Lawrence ‘Dying’ to Return for More X-Men Movies

Jennifer Lawrence eager to return for more X-Men Movies

Last year, Jennifer Lawrence put it bluntly when she was asked if she would be back as Mystique for more X-Men movies following this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse

“It is my last one, actually, yes,” she told MTV at the time. Now she appears to have changed her tone.

Speaking with Empire, Lawrence was asked about coming back again and this time replied: “I am dying to come back. I love these movies, I love being in them. I love ensemble movies because it’s not on anyone’s shoulders.”

It’s unclear what will come of the X-Men franchise after the release of “Apocalypse,” which sees the completion of the trilogy that began with “First Class” but also the end of many of the main cast’s contracts (including Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult). The new additions to the cast, such as Alexandra Shipp’s Storm, Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey, Ben Hardy’s Angel, Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops, Olivia Munn’s Psylocke and Lana Condors Jubilee, could become the focus of the series moving forward, but it remains to be seen. 

Currently no further films in the main franchise have been announced, but a number of spin-offs remain in development including Wolverine 3, Gambit, a Deadpool sequel, and The New Mutants
