Jennifer Lawrence Talks Mystique’s Place in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Following the end of 2011’s X-Men: First Class, Mystique (played by Jennifer Lawrence) was aligned with Magneto, setting up their future with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. But where will she be at the start of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past? Not together, apparently. Speaking with IGN, Jennifer Lawrence mentioned where we find Mystique at the start of the film.

“We find Raven, she’s split off from Eric and Charles and she’s kind of her own agent. She has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody and it will be her first kill basically, and because we’ve seen her in the future and what she becomes and this is kind of a turning point for her.”

Hitting theaters on May 23, 2014, the anticipated film stars Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till.

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past ? to save our future.
