“I’m naked,” says X-Men: Days Of Future Past’s Jennifer Lawrence, putting it bluntly. “But when I do get to wear clothes, I love the ’70s outfits.” She will be reprising her role as Mystique in the sequel to First Class, which is set 10 years later.
Lawrence’s costume is a little different this time around. She’s wearing a body suit rather than being covered in body paint, and it’s a darker shade of blue than in First Class. It looks more like Rebecca Romijn’s version of Mystique, but that’s not the only change to the character, as Lawrence explains:
“Some of the Mystique look is a little different, but weâ€™re still using the same paint. But sheâ€™s different in this film too,” she tells SciFiNow exclusively. “She was struggling â€“ like a lot of normal humans â€“ with the way she looked, and she was covered up a lot in the first movie, but this time she is Mutant and proud.”
From the sneak previews that director Bryan Singer is happily supplying us with (via his Twitter account) Mystique is starring in some cracking action scenes, like the one below:
