Jennifer Lawrence is reprising her role as the blue shapeshifting Mystique in the upcoming ‘First Class’ sequel “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
Talking with Sci-Fi Now, the actress says that due to her becoming proud of her mutant qualities in the first film, she’ll forgo clothing more often in the upcoming sequel:
“I’m naked, but when I do get to wear clothes, I love the 1970s outfits. Some of the Mystique look is a little different, but we’re still using the same paint. But she’s different in this film to. She was struggling – like a lot of normal humans – with the way she looked, and she was covered up a lot in the first movie, but this time she is Mutant and proud.”
The costume is a little different to her first outing as well. Whereas the actress was mostly nude and covered in make-up last time, here she reportedly dons a easier to slip in and out of body suit.
The character’s blue color is also a slightly darker shade, more akin to Rebecca Romijn’s version in the original films, due to the sequel being set ten years after events of the first film.
The project recently wrapped and is scheduled to hit cinemas in May.
