Agreed! Its time too introduce more bad-ass villains!

No i dont think a Mystique film would be good as her past is too random and you wouldnt be able to fixate on one particular story without breaching into anoter mutant origins.

However if you did a Nightcrawler movie, Mystique could play a very prominant role.

it doesn't seem like she spent enough time on her own in this movieverse to really have enough of a story to fill a solo movie

I don't think Lawrence would sign up. But Donner I guess is interested...

“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,” says producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who’s produced all of the X-Men films. “I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters.”

“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.”
No surprise the top three on this poll. Nice to see Storm though.
Quote:
According to a recent poll on EW.com, readers most want a Deadpool flick (24%), then Gambit (21%), X-Force (19%), Storm (17%), Mystique (11%), and lastly Magneto (8%).
Looking forward to the day when she says "we are making..." instead of "We'll see...".

Fox isn't stupid. They lucked out by getting JLaw before she became the huge mega-star she is now.

But a solo Mystique film? No. As far as I know, Mystique has never really carried her on comic. She works better in ensembles. Would I like to see a Brotherhood of Evil Mutants movie with Mystique as the lead character? Yes. That would actually work .

Mystique has carried her own solo comic very well. A solo could be cool, but I agree we don't need this and she works more then fine in ensemble. More of the same and Fox needs to switch it up, Mystique has had plenty of screen time. I don't think Fox will get Lawrence past her contract for one more X flick either. Unless they pay alot.

I heard that she had plans to take a break from acting once she was done with her Hunger Games contract too so yeah, it's unlikely.

Which makes her perfect for a solo movie, she's already got exposure. Not to mention the Oscar-winning actress who's currently playing her. Sorry, but they're not going to just introduce a lesser-known mutant and then give them their own solo movie at the same time. Not going to happen.

They are only going to give spin-offs to those who have first been In team films.
Jennifer Lawrence's populaary is only reason a Mystique film Is even been
talked about. If Gambit shows up In APocalypse maye they will spin-off him off Into his own film. There Is enough mythology with Gambit with thieves and assassins guilds to sustain a solo film without other X-Men. With deadpool he has been able to sustain long running solo books but they may first want him
In good film to forget about origins version first. So eather showing up In X-Men film or third wolverine first or whenever X-Force Is made.

It would be a waste of money. Team films and solo films with characters worthy of carrying his/her own franchise should be the priority.

its the producers job to look at the wider picture and possible other movies they can get out of it, obviously there is a big chance it won't get made like there is a chance gambit and deadpool wont get made even though they say they would like to do it

Thank you! I'm glad the producers see the potential in the same way I did when I started this thread many moons ago. I knew there was too much vocal nay-saying by the haters here, and not enough vision for what a good film this could be with the right story and filmmaker. Bring it!!!

- Is there enough source material to mine for this film? Decades of backstory available... Yes.


- Would it make for an interesting diversion in the genre? Villain/anti-hero story with a female lead... Yes.


- Would it feature a talented and bankable star? Lawrence is a great actress, a rising star with a seemingly ever-expanding fanbase... Yes.


I'm down for this. Somehow I doubt it'll be more than another pitch on the pile marked "maybe someday" though. Would be particularly cool if Rebecca Romijn shared screen-time on it imo.

The most important thing Fox can do for their franchise as a whole is release new properties that will not only expand the universe, but also be able to deliver sequels/reboots for the unseeable future by grabbing a new audience on top of the one they have. They won't be doing themselves any long term favors by sticking with the same character focus over and over. That's not expanding.

A Mystique film will be a one shot. She has her place within the main actors of the series and is now the female lead getting plenty of development. Ahead of multiple A list X-Men. We know how she started and how she ends. The key here is branching out into the unknown. Not the actress cash grab, that will only help the studio for a short amount of time.

If Lawrence is not in Apocalypse, then I could see this being a solid idea for Fox's sake to hold her for one last film given her popularity. Otherwise this franchise is gonna risk even more over saturation with the characters it chooses only to focus on.

There's a strong demand for the focus to be on other returning/New characters. They need to take that into consideration the most to avoid franchise fatigue. Which they are currently doing their best to get out off. Mystique is a great villain, but sooner or later the actual X-Men or other X teams need to be the ones branching out and getting the screen time people want.

If "Jennifer Lawrence Passion Project" means "film directed by David O. Russell" then I could see it.

Nothing wrong with that though. Great perfomances and films.

She is in such high demand that she can lock herself into any film she wants, can only imagine the offers she gets. She's probably gonna want to pick a project that's more personal or has a Director she wants to work with. Happens alot. Her run on Hunger Games and X-Men ending in the next few years. Would be very surprised if she signed on for more big budget franchises.

If there's a film centered around Mystique, I'd rather it be X-Factor. She led Freedom Force and the second X-Factor (of which she was a member) claimed her as a member.

The rest of the team can be Multiple Man, Rictor, Forge, Polaris, Gambit and Layla Miller and Mystique would be dealing with Valerie Cooper as her superior with Cooper being this military brass type who's frequently at odds with Mystique over how the team is run and has to report directly to the President.

Moreover, X-Factor would go for a tone similar to Peter David's first run on the title. By that I mean almost a full-on comedy. This story needs to be really, really funny with how the characters interact with one another.

As far as this Lawrence/Mytsique spinoff idea goes, I'd be fine with it as long as FOX pushes forward with these other(more deserving) spinoffs. Give me X-Force/Deadpool FIRST.

Possibly, that could very well be true. But we can still piece together her origin and where she ends up much better then other characters. Which I guess is more my point. After this new tril, I think it's time to move on with a new focus and female lead. Plenty of X girls out there in need of screen time, good and bad.

I agree. My gut feeling is that they are gonna use XMA to ease Jean Grey(back) into the focus.
