There is little we know about 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse, except that it will close out the trilogy featuring the younger characters from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and that it will be set in the 1980s. While promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Jennifer Lawrence revealed in an interview with IGN that her character Mystique should be in hiding, following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
"She's very complex. She's a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to her opposite race. I don't really know where she's going to go. I've had a few conversations about where we'll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere."
We also reported last week that the sequel will focus on Mystique's relationship with Michael Fassbender's Magneto, while also addressing her burgeoning romance with Beast that fans saw grow in both X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, since Mystique left with Magneto at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past, it remains to be seen how that will affect Mystique and Beast's feelings for one another.
We reported last month that Tom Hardy is being eyed to play the villain Apocalypse, while director Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg are also seeking actors and actresses to play a young Jean Grey and a young Cyclops. Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are in the mix to play Jean Grey, while Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothée Chalamet are in contention for the Cyclops role.
