Jennifer Lawrence is all made up as Mystique in a new photo from X-Men: First Class
Even though we’ve seen glances here and there of Academy Award nominee Jennifer Lawrence painted up as the mutant Mystique, this is the first time we gotten a really detailed and close up shot of the actress. The photo is from the upcoming film X-MEN: FIRST CLASS which has our favorite mutants set back in the 1960’s before there was a big problem between Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). The skilled group is just getting to know their powers and appear to at least be on the same side, if not on the same team. In fact, it looks like Mystique is even dressed up in an X-Men-esque uniform. X-MEN: FIRST CLASS hits theaters on June 3rd, 2011.
To me this looks like the best superhero film of the summer. I can’t wait to see them all but there is a very special place in my heart for the X-Men and since this is such a new take on the characters it makes my mutant-loving heart skip a beat.
