Jennifer Lawrence has been a bit "Daniel Craig" on whether or not she would reprise her role as Mystique in the next X-Men film. While filming X-Men: Apocalypse, she said it would be the last time she would play the role. Then almost a year later she said he would love to return. At this point, anything could happen.
During the press junket for her upcoming film Passengers with Chris Pratt, she was asked about joining the Guardians of the Galaxy universe with her co-star. Lawrence said she would love that and she might choose doing a Guardians movie over doing another X-Men film. The actress said:
I won't be Mystique in the 'X-Men' movies, but I would love to be Mystique in 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' I wonder if I could do that.
Pratt quickly jumped in at that point, saying:
It just happened. This is a binding legal contract.
Her response was joking and the odds of that happening are of course almost impossible, but it would be interesting to speculate just how the shape changing mutant would fit in with the space-traveling band of misfit heroes.
