Jennifer Lawrence Open To Returning To The X-Men Franchise

As X-Men: Apocalypse closes in, it signals the end an error in the X-Men Cinematic Universe. What seems typical industry standards for superhero films are the actors involved sign a three picture deal. That means James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence are free agents after X-Men: Apocalypse.

Fassbender could be your next James Bond, and Lawrence in March of last year stated this is her last film in the X-Men Cinematic Universe. In the land of comic books, movies, and lots and lots of money, never say never. Since that March 2015 interview, Lawrence has a different opinion on the subject.

“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,” said Lawrence to Empire Magazine.

Latino-Review and are speculating that Mystique will not survive X-Men: Apocalypse and Lawrence was joking around in the interview.

X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer and stars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Lana Condor (Jubilee), Olivia Munn, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Ancient mutant Apocalypse is unearthed after 5,000 years and recruits his four horsemen; Magneto, Psylocke, Storm, and Angel. The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse try to reboot the world through destruction.

The film is set in the 1980s and we will see younger versions of previously seen characters.
