Jennifer Lawrence may headline her own blockbuster franchise with the “Hunger Games” films, but for many genre movie fans it will be her turn as X-Men villain Mystique with which her name will always be associated. However, four years after her debut as the blue-skinned shape shifter in “X-Men: First Class,” the star indicates she’s preparing to embark on the final chapter in her Marvel mutant career.
“It is my last one, actually, yes,” Lawrence told MTV News when asked if “X-Men: Apocalypse” will be her last film in the franchise.
Lawrence’s statement makes her the second mutant to announce their departure from the Fox franchise in recent weeks. Earlier this month, Nicholas Hoult told a SXSW audience that the upcoming sequel will be his final appearance as the X-Men’s Hank McCoy, aka Beast. Hoult also indicated that his character’s final story arc will be closely entwined with Lawrence’s Mystique, following up on the pair’s “First Class” relationship.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” is slated to arrive in theaters February 18, 2016.
