Mystique Will Definitely Be Blue In X-Men: First Class

The actress talks about her make-up sessions.

We've been hearing some strange things about X-Men: First Class. It's hard to really determine how it will turn out. It's easy to overreact and assume the worst. Maybe it's wishful thinking but I'd like to think that maybe there's some hope that it will turn out to be an entertaining movie. 
 
While we've been struggling to determine how this will fit in with the other X-Men movies (I'm pretty sure they've never officially referred to it as a 'reboot'), we could have some reassurance with how "young" Mystique will look. 
 
Jennifer Lawrence appears in W Magazine (via TotalBeauty.com) and talked about a couple of her upcoming roles. She mentioned while playing Mystique, she has to undergo 12 hours of prosthetics and that the role requires her to "be in the buff" a bit. The nice thing is she seems to have a good view on how to handle herself and Hollywood.  

My job is not to be skinny, my job is to act. The business does try to type you. You can either be pretty and dumb […]But you can't say no. I'm good at saying no. 

It's nice to hear that not all young actresses cave to the pressure that Hollywood and society often forces upon them.    
 
What role do you think Mystique will play in this X-Men story dealing with a younger Professor X and Magneto set in the 60s?

Sweet glad to see them stay with her original look

Posted by ComicMan24

Interesting news.

Edited by BuddyBulson

I WAS JUST WONDERING THIS!!! like 25 mins ago i was like, i hope they explain why she is naked in the other films, and all that.
 
I think she will be Erik's find, but friends with both. but when the rift is torn, she will choose Magnetos side.

It's a Requel, a reboot/prequel like the new star trek was.
Ya I'm happy they are keeping the look also, and its also refreshing to hear a young actress, not cave and be grossly skinny like a lot of young actresses are these days. Could have to do with what they put up there nose as well ;)

Is a different actress right? 
 
She better bring her acting A card because the first Mystique was really good IMO
 





Posted by Shadowdoggy

hopefully she will meet up with Azazele at some point 
you know....for a little rendez vouz, mutant style
Posted by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: Azazel is in the movie if I remember correctly, right?
Posted by Chesapeake

Go Blue!!

Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
yes, he is 
so I'm sure they'll be hooking up before the credits roll
Posted by difficlus

no way they could have screwed up her being blue...

Posted by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: I am sure that they will have some kind of interaction in the movie.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
defintiely 
I heard someone's theory that he could be a part of the Hellfire Club line-up we'll see 
Posted by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: We will find out eventually. But I am curious.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
as am I.

Oh yeah!!!!!
"Where all my blue skins at!!!"

 
Wait a minute! Mystique in the Hellfire club? If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Just Freakin' Sayin.

@Doctor!!!!!:
no, not her 
but Azazel possibly 
I think Raven will just be lurking about and trying to manipulate things....per usual
Posted by ComicMan24

I still want to know if it a prequel or a reboot.

Posted by G-Man
@ComicMan24: I recall hearing some comparisons to the recent Star Trek movie. Maybe an alternate universe thing so they don't have to officially call it a reboot since it sure can't be a prequel. Just Emma frost being here and in Wolverine Origins doesn't jive.

@G-Man: I agree about the Emma Frost but not sure about the timeline thing.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@G-Man:
very little about X-Men Origins: Wolverine jives..... at all
Posted by Red Rum

You guys can go ahead and make this film, I'm not gonna see it. The Spider-Reboot, neither.

I hope Raven Darkholme is'nt TOO young in this movie. I thought she didnt age, but i wouldnt mind her being a little younger because this is quite a gap in years compared to the other x-men films. And if this is supposed to tie into those films, i hope this movie introduces Raven's partner Destiny...because her precognition could help tie in the previous film plots...

Posted by Journey Into Chaos

ok that's a relief. But Mystique should be played by the same actress since she's ageless.

Posted by Shadowdoggy
@irvine1345:
I never thought about it like that 
Destiny SHOULD be in, if Raven is and it really takes place in the 60's 
hmmmm, could be very very interesting if they used her precog powers right
Posted by BuddyBulson
@Shadowdoggy: 
I agree, they had her in it they could really fuck with destiny and time lines. and i was the one who said they will most likely have Azazel in the hellfire club. as a the black rook or bishop prob. im guessing the man in black is the black king. but who knows. i can not WAIT for this film.

With Wolverine Origins, it's more like "jive turkey."  
(just a little warning about some language in this clip):

this actress that will play mystique is beautiful tha the other actress of the others movie of x men and i can that this actress played mystique in the others movies of x men

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

well that is good news

Posted by Midnight Monk
@BuddyBulson: Mystique never actually has to ever wear clothes, I believe there are apart of her skin that she can shed at will. I read that somewhere anyway, seems kinda freaky to be honest
Posted by Comicgirl93

I think this gal could be good for Mystique! :D

Posted by Bruce Vain

Just like the Spider-Man reboot - I've lost allll interest in this X-Men prequel.
Posted by irvine1345
@Shadowdoggy:   definitely, and even though there stuffing this movie with a bunch of plots, they should mine as well have a little cameo appearance of rogue when raven adopts her. XD..but not diving too much into that. :T 
Posted by leokearon

This is sad, one of the few bits on concrete info on this movie is that Mystique will be blue; oh no I was hoping she would be red with purple spots
Posted by G-Man
@leokearon: Well, with some of the information we've heard so far about the movie, that wouldn't really be too surprising.

True, still this is going to be Wolverine all over again "MUTANT AWAY!"

Agreed. Nor am I going to see the Thor movie. I've lost too much fate in Marvel movies to care anymore. However, that being said, I still have high hopes for the Deadpool movie. Because they have a dedicated actor playing him who wants to do it all right.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@irvine1345:
well, maybe that could be cool 
but it would make Rogue a little too old in the movie continuity, being a kid in the 60's 
but whatevs 
I'm sure they'll make it all work
Posted by Shadowdoggy
Posted by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: Yeah but will this movie be in the same continuity as the other movies? There is no official information on this, as far as I know.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@BuddyBulson:
ah yes, of course it was you, smarty 
and I do hope Destiny is in and they use her powers well 
it could really tie this movie to the rest of the marvel u 
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
not sure 
I hope not
Posted by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: You want them to be in the same continuity?
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
no, I'd rather they didn't 
I'd prefer a new continuity
Posted by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: To tell you the truth with all these changes, I think it may probably be better in its own continuity.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
I sort of agree with that too 
keep it as far from the 616 as possible
Edited by ComicMan24
@Shadowdoggy: But you never know the movie might make sense in regards to continuity, although I doubt. I just don't want to see any time travel or alternative realities.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@ComicMan24:
yeah, NO time travel
Posted by BuddyBulson
@Shadowdoggy:  @Shadowdoggy: 
 
I heard there will be time travel/ alternative realities... showing Emma younger and being born in the future or something like that. then say all the 1st movies are in a different time line. Something mad crazy like that. but who knows they might not even go that in depth with it. let people wonder if they ever connect or not. 
 
this could be be4 the X:Men are created and the next movie could feature the original Five Lights, Hank, Scott, Jean, Bobby, and Warren. They could use Havoc and Darwin, as a Deadly Genesis plot or something, do to their death in XM:FC cuz we all know Darwin is going to "DIE" in this movie and come back at a later date. but who knows this movie can go any direction and I can not wait to see what Vaugh and Goldmen have come up with.
Posted by Shadowdoggy
@BuddyBulson:
yeah, I think they can really do a lot with the story and setting, so I'm excited to see how it will all come together 
god knows there's a lot of room for improvement
