Jennifer Lawrence talks Mystique in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

This is my first post for Gordon and the Whale, and I would like to say that I am very appreciative for the warm “Whalecome” that I’ve received.

Before this year, Jennifer Lawrence’s biggest acting credit was as Lauren Pearson on The Bill Engvall Show. Then WINTER’S BONE was released, garnering rave reviews (which I don’t agree with) and Oscar buzz for her performance (which I do agree with), allowing Lawrence to be identified as a brave new talent instead of just Bill Engvall’s daughter.

Lawrence was subsequently cast as Mystique in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, and because of the talent involved (Matthew Vaughn, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Rose Byrne) the film looks to rid the taste of X- MEN: THE LAST STAND out of the general public’s collective mouth. Because the film is a prequel and has a new creative team behind the camera, no one is quite sure what the characters will look like. Lawrence has recently shed a little bit of light on her character’s appearance.

According to /Film (via Hollywood Elsewhere), Lawrence spends only 10% of the film as Mystique, and her get-up will resemble Rebecca Romjin’s from the first three X-MEN films. I hope that Lawrence breathes some much needed life into a flatlining franchise.

Are you looking forward to Lawrence's take on the character?
