AceShowbiz - Bryan Singer thinks Mystique a.k.a. Raven Darkholme, played by %cJennifer Lawrence% in "X-Men: Apocalypse", should get a standalone movie. With "The Wolverine 3" and a "Gambit (2017)" solo film on the docket, Bryan believes it's the right time for a Mystique feature.
"I think [Mystique's] right for [a standalone], whether it's Jennifer or not," Simon told Empire Podcast, "She has this different view of the world: Xavier can get into Cerebro and look at the world but he'd rather just teach classes and see the beauty of mutants and humans co-existing in his mansion in Westchester. Along comes Raven with a reality check on the state of the world. It opens up a lot of avenues."
Jennifer's three-picture deal with Fox expires with "X-Men: Apocalypse" and so do %cJames McAvoy% and %cMichael Fassbender%'s contracts. However, the actress recently expressed her interest to return to the franchise.
"Fassbender and McAvoy and I were all talking. Like, 'Will you come back?' 'I dunno.' 'I'll come back, if you come back.' Fox should be terrified because the deal we made was like if one of us doesn't come back, none of us are," she told EW, "I would love to come back. I love the fans and I love the character. But then you realize how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is. I don't know. I shouldn't be that honest."
