Little Girl Mystique Cast in X-Men: First Class

So... many... mutants...

 Meet lil' Mystique.

So SHH is saying that Morgan Lily, the lil’ girl from 2012, is going to play lil’ Mystique in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and I’ve officially run out of ways to say that the casting announcements for this movie are crazy. Sooner or later, they’re going to say I’m in this movie. Anyway, seeing as how Jennifer Lawrence is going to playing the older Mystique in this movie (although still younger than the one we’ve seen in the previous movies,) I’m presuming this will start with some prologue of her childhood like they did for Angel in THE LAST STAND. Or there might just be a lot of time travel in this movie, as I've speculated before.

Considering that Azazel’s in this movie, too, I’m guessing that they’re actually going down the route of making her Nightcrawler’s estranged mother. I remember watching Kurt ‘n Raven’s campside scene in X2   - - the one where he  asks why she doesn’t change shape all the time - - and wondering if the crew intended there to be a mother/son subtext.  The family ties and six degrees of separation in the mutant universe are so complex, I really didn’t fault them for excising that bit - - their relationship was just way too complicated to broach in one movie. But I suppose four or five movies allows for enough room to comfortably delve? Hell… maybe they’ll even touch on her stepmotherly relationship to Rogue too? Ahhhhh…! == TEASER ==

Continuing my speculation, I doubt they’re going to make Azazel an actual demon in this Nightcrawler-producing tryst. He’ll probably just be a demonic-looking mutant. Unless they're really going to make this as fantastical as the comics. At the point, I'd wonder how long it'd be before the Shi'ar showed up.

Enough with this film already!

Edited by ComicMan24

So I guess that Mystique won't age like in the comics where she is like 100 years old. The casting in this movie is a mess.

 My expectations for this movie could not be lower.

Azazel is a demonic-looking mutant

This movie will flop, calling it now. I can't say I'm interested at all and honestly I can't imagine many others are either.

I'm going to try to be optimistic. Here it goes.....Awesome! Totally Awesome Can't wait for this movie!!

I mean if you think about it having Mystique be as old as she really is wouldn't translate well.

Posted by Zghost

Didnt they learn that less is more and more is less from every other movie out there.  I am an avid comic movie person but this just sounds horrible, next thing ill hear is they will somehow end up in the savage land with kazar fighting skrulls.

For some reason, I'm thinking the costume design for her in this film will be slightly less... naked.

maybe i wouldn't be mad if she was pretending to be a little girl to get the hold of somebody for a strange experience

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the finalized cast photo for X-Men: First Class:

Posted by Tsakura

WoW another Movie to make fun of. I wonder who's story line they will mess up this time?

Posted by Lovingdamnation

I have a feeling this move is going to be topping my list of poor choices by movie makers. I really really want to get behind these movies and sometimes I do but the writing/production teams always seems to be in over their heads. Just pick one thing and adapt it! no one comicfan or otherwise is going to want to see over reaching junk.

She looks like a cutey!

Posted by bingbangboom

I have really lost all interest in this movie till they actually start filming or make a trailer. I don't know if I have faith in the project anymore even with the talent behind it.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

I never thought something could sink as low as the Wolverine movie, By Odin's beard I'm afraid this may just prove me wrong.

Posted by DH69

well if theres a "lil mystique" i hope they dump the naked lizard lady look and go with hot blue skin no scales and **** like that.

lol - I'll deffinitly go see this!

Posted by AxlReznor

Will everybody just reserve their judgement until the movie is actually out? Jesus Christ, sometimes I am disgusted by my fellow geek. 
 
I am looking forward to it because of the combination of Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn... they're on a roll with Stardust and Kick-Ass both being awesome. Hopefully they can keep it up.

this could be just be one of Mystique's shape-shifts. I wouldn't take this too seriously.

true, true. A lot of these castings can be very misleading. I've said this a lot in these announcements. But characters like Arclight and Psylocke were announced to appear in X-Men 3  and only ended up having 2 minutes of screen time.

I agree. But what I find funny, is that they haven't find actors for the mutants that actually were in the First Class.
