In an interview with SciFiNow, the 23-year-old Oscar-winner bluntly says of Mystique’s fresh look, “I’m naked. But when I do get to wear clothes, I love the ’70s outfits.” (FYI, the film takes place 10 years after X-Men: First Class.)
As seen in the first behind-the-scenes shot of the actress, her character’s a darker shade of blue than in the first film in the franchise, making her look more like Rebecca Romijn‘s version in the X-Men trilogy that originated in 2000. What you don’t see is that J.Law’s wearing a bodysuit this time around, rather than being completely covered in body paint.
Jenn adds, “Some of the Mystique look is a little different… 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.”
X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to hit theaters on May 23, 2014. Is it on your must-see list? What do you think of the past/present storyline? Tell us in the comments!
