Jennifer Lawrence Is ‘Dying’ to Make More ‘X-Men’ Movies

Jennifer Lawrence revealed that she’s eager to star in more “X-Men” films.

“I am dying to come back,” the Oscar-winning actress told Empire in an interview. “I love these movies, I love being in them. I love ensemble movies because it’s not on anyone’s shoulders.”

Lawrence’s admission comes as a surprise, considering that last May she confirmed that the spring 2016 release of “X-Men: Apocalypse” would mark her final appearance in the sci-fi franchise. She’s played sexy blue mutant Mystique in “X-Men: First Class” (2011), “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (2014) and now in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” the latest chapter in the film series.

In the ninth “X-Men” installment, which is set a decade after the events of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the X-Men must unite to face immortal supervillain Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac), who awakens after thousands of years with a plan to extinguish humanity.

The actioner, which will be directed by “X-Men” regular Bryan Singer, will star franchise newcomers Isaac, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Olivia Munn and Lana Condor. Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Lawrence are all returning to reprise their roles.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” hits theaters on May 27.
