[News] ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’: Jennifer Lawrence Says Mystique Is Mutant & Proud

The X-Men comics and movies have always had a certain amount of subtext related to the treatment and persecution of minority and the pressure for mutants to remain “closeted” in human society, and this will almost certainly be a strong theme running through the upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. Based on a comic arc wherein the mutants are rounded up and either killed or sent to internment camps, the movie will also show the early days of Magneto’s Brotherhood of Mutants, which includes Mystique.

Raven was seen struggling with her identity a great deal in X-Men: First Class, since she spent her youth actively disguising her true appearance in order to blend in better with society. After a reprimand from Eric about the division of her concentration making her weaker, she started to come around to the idea of using her natural form, and even considering it beautiful rather than freakish.

Jennifer Lawrence in a recent interview spoke a little about her wardrobe (or lack thereof) in X-Men: Days of Future Past and how it reflects the changes she’s undergone as a character, in particular her newfound acceptance of the way she looks.

   “I’m naked. But when I do get to wear clothes, I love the ’70s 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, too. 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.”

 Though Mystique is wandering around naked, X-Men: Days of Future Past will manage to dodge an R rating thanks to some skillful application of blue scales.
