First Look at Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique on the X-Men: Days of Future Past Set


Here’s your first look at “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence trying the blue paint on again from the set of Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. I don’t think anyone is still going to confuse Lawrence for Rebecca Romijn even in the sequel, but hey, maybe she’ll grow into the tall former supermodel by the third prequel.

Singer titles this tweet as “Jennifer Lawrence as a vengeful Mystique”, which sounds interesting, since the last time we saw Mystique, she had gone off with Magneto, thus fulfilling the character’s arc. As you’ll recall, the first time we saw the character (as an adult) in Singer’s “X-Men”, she was already a member of Magneto’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Why is she “vengeful” in the “Days of Future Past”, though?

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” also stars Peter Dinklage, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Patrick Stewart, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Omar Sy, and Hugh Jackman.

Mystique and company return next year July 18, 2014.

    Like that the bulgy forehead-thing from the first movie looks to have been either slimmed down or removed altogether, cuz that’s all I’m looking at–the forehead and nothing below the neck. But has I wonder if Jason Flemying’s Azazel will show up at all. If the Fox Cinematic Universe is planning to show Mystique and Azazel to be Nightcrawler’s parents, “DOFP’s” 70’s setting would be about when he should’ve been born

      Unfortunately I don’t think that they’re going that route. It’s a shame because it was set up for it to happen. From what I know of the casting both Azazel and Nightcrawler will not be making the cut. Their teleportation character in this one will be filled by Clarice Ferguson aka Blink who will be played by Bingbing Fan.
