Back in March, Jennifer Lawrence suggested that she’d be calling time on her role as Mystique in the X-Men franchise, describing next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse as her “last one.” However, it seems she may be contemplating a change of heart, with the Oscar winner telling Yahoo! Movies that she’d consider a return to the mutant superhero franchise.
“I told Fox not to not ask me,” said Lawrence at Comic-Con. “I kind of want to bait them with a text and then when they call me, I go, ‘Don’t call me!’ and then hang up. I don’t know. I love doing these movies. I want them to ask me, and then I’m just going to see how I feel in the moment when they ask. It might not make a lot of sense to a lot of people, but I feel like I’ll know when they ask. If I get a pit in my stomach and feel like I’m going to throw up, I’ll say no. And if I don’t, I’ll ask how much they want to pay me.”
