Bryan Singer Wants Mystique Solo Movie Jennifer Lawrence Or Not

Longtime ‘X-Men’ director Bryan Singer says Mystique needs her own solo movie, whether it stars J-Law or not.

Bryan Singer has proclaimed that the blue-skinned femme fatale Mystique, currently portrayed by Hollywood “It” girl Jennifer Lawrence, is his pick to have her own standalone movie.



In a recent episode of The Empire Film Podcast, Singer tosses his pick for a solo X-flick into the mix.


I think [Mystique’s] right for [a standalone movie], whether it’s Jennifer [Lawrence] or not.


Is the ‘X-Men’ director insinuating that J-Law will not be the future of Mystique on the big-screen? Although Jennifer Lawrence took on the role of Mystique in the last three ‘X-Men’ films, her three-picture contract concludes with ‘Apocalypse, a film which is currently in theaters and receiving mixed reviews.


Back in May, Lawrence noted that while she was uncertain about the future X-film slate, she would be open to returning. The question still remains as to whether or not Singer wants her to.

Prior to Lawrence’s reign as the azure shapeshifter, model/actress Rebecca Romijn played Mystique in the original live action ‘X-Men’ trilogy.


With Hugh Jackman‘s ‘Wolverine’ and Ryan Reynolds’ “Deadpool” as the only two characters from the ‘X-Men’ universe to go standalone, Mystique would only be the third character to go solo in the Fox held marvel film cosmos. It would also follow the rising trend of solo Female superhero films.


Jackman is set to reprise his role as the lethal Adamantium boned mutant for an R-rated “Wolverine 3,” set to hit theaters March 3, 2017. ‘Deadpool 2’ is also in the works, although no concrete details have been released. As for the future of a solo Mystique film, audiences will have to wait and see if this passing thought materializes and who will be donning the blue skinned look if it does.

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
