Is she good or bad? Either way, Mystique/Raven Darkhölme has been a major part of the ‘X-Men’ movies, first embodied by Rebecca Romijn and more recently by Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence. The newest flick in the franchise, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be no different as we already know she plays a huge part as an underground mutant freedom fighter.
In this new clip, she returns to Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters, where she and Charles (James McAvoy) have a tense reunion.
For a sneak peak at the new film, watch below:
Lawrence is expected to have a big role in recruiting Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Angel (Ben Hardy) and has been shown, in previous trailers, to be considered a full-fledged X-Man. In the comics, Mystique is mainly a villain and is Nightcrawler’s mother, but I wouldn’t expect that to be part of the movies. Now her villain turn? That may play a role in this film, since as we saw in the later-set ‘X-Men’ movies, she was part of Magneto’s Brotherhood.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
Are you looking forward to the last (?) go-round for Lawrence, McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult? Or do you think they may return for future installments?
