Magneto, Mystique Get Romantic In “X-Men”

A new feature piece on Jennifer Lawrence over at THR also includes some new details on “X-Men: Apocalypse,” specifically where her character of Mystique will go in the new film:

“Apocalypse is being crafted around Lawrence’s Mystique character and Michael Fassbender’s Magneto. A source who has seen the script says Fox will take full advantage of Lawrence and Fassbender’s star power, placing Mystique and Magneto’s romance front and center.”

The cast is due on the Montreal set in April next year to work on the project which is currently targeting a May 27th 2016 release date. Lawrence is also slated to work on the David O. Russell-directed “Joy” in February.
