    sorry for the topic change...

    but, according to Jennifer, if she has, for example, 10 scenes, 1 will be with the Mystique form.

    mmm, I suppose well see her real form being a child too, so that would be 15%, lol

    Maybe they had to cut down on the number of transformation scenes to save money :awesome:

    This will be like X2, except we will see her in human form through out and then a scene as Mystique like Grace scene in X2.

    I figure that's when she decided to side with Erik after Charles picked Moira over her !

    Then that is not like X2...that is the exact opposite of X2.

    If she is a minor character then that is fine but she played a pretty prevalent role in X1 and X2 and I think she is one of the main characters in this so 10% is pretty saddening:( I understand it is her powers but it would be like having a Spider-Man movie where Mysterio was Beck 90% of the time and only Mysterio 10%.

    I have a feeling by the end of this film, the X1 scene where she sabotages Cerebro is going to have a completely different feel to it.

    Well this is clearly a very different type of X-Film or even super hero film. Otherwise we wouldn't have only four returning characters from the other films (unless you count Moira in her blink-and-miss-it-cameo and Emma Silverfox). In the context of the film I feel it wouldn't make much sense for Mystique to be blue for most of the film and it probably has something to do with her X1 comments about people like Kelly making her afraid to go to school as a child.

    If they are best friends, the first trilogy will be kind of weird now, since Xavier and Mystique NEVER had a scene together.

    That's kind of sad, for me at least.

    I actually like the idea of Mystique being in human form for most of the film. It makes the most sense and it will be really effective when we finally get to see her true self. Its also interesting that they are making Charles and Mystique best friends. I'm interested to see how that plays out. Im so excited for this movie...I just hope it doesn't get "fox"ed ...so to speak.

    I agree. I kind of feel this film is going to have a pretty tragic tone overall.

    Obviously we''ll have Xavier and Magneto breaking up.

    Xavier's relationship with Moira probably won't turn out well given their comic history and the fact she's absent in the trilogy.

    Xavier and Mystique being best friends and then devolving into their non-relatonship in the trilogy.

    Then there's the fact that most of the younger mutants aren't in the main trilogy, which kind of makes me think something bad is going to happen with them. Even if it's just them ditching Xavier or joining Magneto's Brotherhood.

    yes, all seems to end bad.

    I kind of like it, really. I like the drama on the superhero movies, so I have the feeling this will be one of my faves, if not my fave.

    Another interview:

    Apart from your stint on “The Bill Engvall Show,” people know you as a serious indie actress. But coming off “Winter’s Bone,” you did a very glamorous photo shoot in Esquire that got a lot of attention, and then you signed on to make “X-Men,” which was kind of a seismic shift in your career approach. Are you deliberately working to change perceptions?
    Yes and no. It was a seismic move, and it did change people’s perceptions. But the truth is, I can’t do as many indies as I want and do as many studios as I want, but I can do a studio and do as many indies as I want. Do you know what I mean?
    Wellll ....
    [pause] Let me try again. I have a cold so I’m not thinking clearly. Basically, I’m always going to be able to do the little movies that I love. And it was time to move to a studio and do a bigger movie. I do love “X-Men,” I loved the script, I think Matthew Vaughan is a fantastic director, James McAvoy is one of my favorite actors, and Michael Fassbender as well. I was the right move.
    I saw an older interview where you railed against the major studios and said you’d lost patience with them.
    Well, yeah. I had read a lot of crappy studio scripts when I said that. But that’ll teach me to never say never. Again, this is a total learning process, and I didn’t know what I was talking about.
    It became big news on the Internet the other day when you mentioned that you’re only blue in 10 percent of the movie.
    Yeah. My publicist said, “Don’t say that today.” But it’s true, I’m not really blue for that much of the movie. I just don't know why that one quote took over the world.
    That blue bodypaint can be pretty eye-catching ...
    Well, it’s still there. Just not as much.

    The movie is an X-Men origin story?
    Yeah. It’s a prequel about the founding of the school. And it’s set in the ‘60s, so it’s fun to wear those clothes.

    I don't understand why Mystique being blue for only 10% of the movie is a big deal, anyway. It's not as though she said she won't be using her power for 90% of the movie. She simply said she won't be blue. That's a good thing, in my opinion. It's something different. Also, I can't remember who said it but, I agree and think Mystique will embrace her true form when she breaks ranks with Xavier and joins Magneto.

    thanks.

    its curious that Fox doesnt seem to want the sexy Mystique look that much, I mean, everyone know genera audience love that kind of things in movies.

    I suppose she has many scenes on this movie, so its normal most of them are in others form.

    Im really interested on her role. Hope to see at least one dramatic scene with Jennifer.

    They aren't playing up most of the few familiar remnants from the old trilogy. It's like the Anti-Wolverine. Which is kind of cool, but also kind of worrying for me in terms of how big the interest will be.

    Curious? Not really. It's not as though Fox maintains a quota of female nudity that must be met in order for a movie to be released. Mystique isn't blue because evidently the story doesn't call for it. And would anyone want the studio to intervene that much? I don't think so.

    I mean..

    she is one of the most visual characters on the trilogy, and one of the most visual of this prequel, at least from what we know.

    that's why I find it a bit curious.

    But of course we have Beast, and I think they are going to give him more blue screentime, mostly because that will be her FOREVER look.

    So I can understand that Mystique wont be blue the same as Beast.

    We had a couple of reports with a nonfurry Beast I think so I'm wondering how often we'll even see blue Beast in this film.

    Most likely won't be furry until the last act is my guess. Hopefully at least. Would be cool to see his accident in live action.

    Me.

    Look...I want a naked blue chick and a lingerie hottie romping around the entire movie. 10% just seems small to me. I don't want to see her blue for only one scene. I truly hope she is her true form more than once. If it is only once...I will be a very very very sad panda bear.

    The story could call for 100% blue Mystique or 0% blue Mystique...that is the magic of writing. I just hope that they didn't write it that way because of budget constraints. Mystique is very pricey to show transform as Jennifer mentioned, it takes a long time to get her in full makeup and that is all very costly as well. We will see...but I just hope that they use her time very well and meaningful.

    So I take it Xavier has no idea who she really is when they're walking through the streets of Oxford as best buddies. His empathic abilities get lost on Mystique?
