Jennifer Lawrence: ‘X-Men’ Bosses Should Be ‘Terrified’ About Our Contracts
Entertainment| | By Sara Wilkins
The movie bosses behind the X-Men movies will be sighing with relief after learning Jennifer Lawrence wants to return for more franchise films.
The actress has portrayed Raven, aka Mystique, in two X-Men movies and returns for this month’s X-Men: Apocalypse, but fans of the film series feared the new film would be her last.
Co-star James McAvoy recently suggested the film’s leading stars were all hoping to come back for at least another film, and now Lawrence appears to be on board.
In a new Entertainment Weekly interview, The Hunger Games star says, “(Michael) Fassbender and McAvoy and I were all talking like, ‘Will you come back?’ ‘I dunno.’ ‘I’ll come back, if you come back.'”
She laughed, “Fox (movie studio bosses) should be terrified because the deal we made was, like, if one of us doesn’t come back, none of us are.
“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.”
Meanwhile, McAvoy confessed he has no plans to walk away from his role as Charles Xavier any time soon – and he hoped Lawrence would join him in more X-Men movies.
During a recent interview with French website L’Internaute, McAvoy said, “I’ve heard… people have said she’s not into it, stuff like that. She’s always said to me that she would think about it. I hope she does, because I love working with Jennifer. You know, we’ve been, like, an extended sort of family, in a weird way, for six or seven years now.”
The two stars first teamed up for X-Men: First Class and McAvoy would love to make more X-Men movies.
“If they want me to, I’ll do more, yeah,” he added.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27.
