Jennifer Lawrence Is Suddenly Very Interested in Doing More X-Men Movies

Hey, remember when Jennifer Lawrence said X-Men: Apocalypse was going to be her last X-Men film? Well, not so much any more. She's now "dying to come back" for another X-flick, which should be good news for every fan of cinema's best-loved, practically naked blue shapshifter. I imagine either Fox pulled the proverbial (or literal) dumptruck full of cash to Lawrence's Hollywood estate, or at the very least that they are in negotiations for said dumptruck; certainly Fox wants as many X-Men movies as possible, as well as for the incredibly popular actress to star in all of them. But my question, as always, is this: Where the hell does an X-Men franchise stuck in the past go next?

Could Bryan Singer get one more movie out of the current franchise? Would it be set in the '90s? Would, given the movie's recent love of adapting key comic storylines, the story be about the X-Men's biggest foe for that decade, Onslaught? Would, given Apocalypse's acceptance of the comic costumes, the costume designers look to the X-Men's most iconic '90s outfits? Because I would do some horrible things to get this in live-action:

OK, I've solved it. The next movie is X-Men: Onslaught and it's going full '90s. I imagine Bryan Singer has already thought of all of this himself, but if he hasn't, he's welcome to the idea because it is awesome. Fox, please contact me and I'll tell you where to deliver my dumptruck full of money.

    You don't become one of the highest paid women in Hollywood by saying no.

      I think part of saying no would be the fear that you'd get type cast as Mystique forever. Not that she'd need to fear that now...

      But she's also able to command a MUCH higher salary now compared to the other X-Men films.

    I hate her so much and I can't figure out why. J-Law, not Mystique.

      Is it because she's not your wife? Cz srsly, she's pretty great.

        Nah man I really, really dunno what it is. Something about her just really irks me.

          It's called overexposure. I'm sort of getting the same vibe.

    problem with Jenny as mystique is that shes too young to be nightcrawlers mother, where if they were to go with her original actress it would be perfect.. plus i find her more attractive than Jennifer Lawrance

      gawd damnit I'm reading through the new jedi order series and each time tycho comes up I think of you

        I just see THAC0 and shudder. *shudder*

        hehe.. whats funny is that i my name was a mistake, it was actually ment to be tycho, but not from the expanded universe but from Bungie's Marathon. it was the name of the 3rd AI alongside leela and Durandle

    Talentless millennial shit wanting to stick around while a franchise gets dragged through the mud and milked.
    I see nothing wrong.

      Bitter much?

      If you don't like the movies, don't watch them.

    Its because after Apocalypse the X-Men/Fox franchise are joining the Marvel Avengers universe.

    So we're going to have to endure more Katniss yipee.

    Jesus no... she's terrible as Mystique. & the more Fox spend on her the more desperate they are to make the films as much about her as possible.
