With "X-Men: Apocalypse," some of the franchise's main stars will complete their three-picture deal with 20th Century Fox, leaving future of X-Men films rather uncertain. Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult will no longer be contractually obligated to star in more X-Men movies.
Lawrence, who's clearly one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood today, was asked during a recent interview whether she would consider playing Mystique. Not sure about the studio, but her response will definitely make fans happy.
"Fassbender and McAvoy and I were all talking...Like, 'Will you come back?' 'I dunno.' 'I'll come back, if you come back.' Fox should be terrified because the deal we made was like if one of us doesn't come back, none of us are," she told Entertainment Weekly.
"I would love to come back," said Lawrence. "I love the fans and I love the character. But then you realise how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is. I don't know. I shouldn't be that honest."
Apart from McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence and Hoult, the "X-Men: Apocalypse" cast includes Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Josh Helman, Lana Condor and Ben Hardy.
The film, directed by Bryan Singer, opens in theatres in India on May 20, and in the U.S. on May 27, 2016.
