Jennifer Lawrence Will Say Goodbye to X-Men
X-Men: Apocalypse will be the actress' last film in the franchise
Lawrence’s debut as the blue bombshell was in X-Men: First Class, which was released in 2011. After grabbing the hearts of X-Men fans around the world, Lawrence gave a return performance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which was released in 2014.
Simon Kinberg, who co-wrote and co-produced X-Men: Apocalypse, spoke with Collider last year and hinted that the latest film would be Mystique’s last.
“I will say that X-Men: Apocalypse is definitely the close of a trilogy for those First Class characters, which isn’t to say we won’t see them in future movies, hopefully we will, but it’s a completion of an arc for them,” Kinberg said.
Kinberg also said the film will further examine the relationship between Mystique and Beast, played by Lawrence’s ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult.
“The relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore in Days of Future Past, so we’ll have an opportunity to do more of that in Apocalypse,” he said.
X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to hit theaters May 27, 2016.
