Entertainment Weekly reports that 20th Century Fox could be planning a spin-off for Mystique. The latest X-Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, opens on May 23.
When asked about it, producer Lauren Shuler Donner said "There was a regime [at the studio] that didn't see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we're going to do right by it. I'd like to do Gambit. I'd like to do Deadpool. We'll see. There's a lot of really great characters."
Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) plays a big role in the plot of the new film.
Producer and writer Simon Kinberg added: "I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there's so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo."
The next film, X-Men: Apocalypse, will arrive on May 27, 2016. Wolverine will get another film on March 3, 2017.
