I love what Jennifer Lawrence has done with X-Men's Mystique. She's a great actress, and I've always liked the character. She's one of the more interesting characters in the universe because she's conflicted. She's on the villain side, but at the same time she still has some good in her. According to X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner, there's a chance that we could see a spin-off Mystique film. In a recent interview with EW, she started talking about spin-off films saying,
"There was a regime [at the studio] that didn’t see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we’re going to do right by it. I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters."
We've heard all of those names mentioned before as potential spin-off movies and Deadpool for sure needs to happen! Fox is kind of stupid for not pulling the trigger on it yet. The producer then goes on to add Mystique to that list of potential spin-off films saying,
“I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there’s so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo.”
It would be great to see this happen, but I think they need to do that Deadpool movie before anything else. That's the one fans want to see the most. It's the one we've all been waiting for, so make it happen Fox!
