Jennifer Lawrence says she is dying to come back for another ‘X-Men’ sequel, but doesn't know if that's possible.
In just a few short months, 20th Century Fox's X-Men prequel trilogy will come to a close, when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27. Aside from spinoffs like the uber-successful Deadpool and upcoming projects like Gambit and The New Mutants, the studio hasn't said much else about the future of this franchise.
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique in this superhero series, revealed in a new interview with Empire that she is dying to return to this universe after X-Men: Apocalypse. "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."
Jennifer Lawrence played Mystique in 2011's X-Men: First Class, set in the 1960s, X-Men: Days of Future Past, which takes place in the 1970s, and X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set in 1983. During an interview from March 2015, the actress stated that X-Men: Apocalypse will be her last movie in the X-Men franchise. However, during another interview in July 2015, she said there is still hope of playing Mystique once again.
