Could this be the last X- Men outing for Jennifer Lawrence ?
What kind of psychological place is Raven at when Apocalypse begins?
Raven’s disillusioned about the system, and very much on her own. She’s like a one- person army going around the world helping mutants in need. But she’s not letting herself get close to anyone. Then she starts to bond with Nightcrawler. She saves him in the opening, then they’re together for much of the movie. And she comes to connect with all the new kids, becoming a leader for them.
In the comics she’s Nightcrawler’s mother, of course – is that something you touch upon?
It’s not something we explore in this movie.
Is this an emotional film?
There’s a lot of emotion in it – a lot of emotional closure for Raven’s character. She reunites with Hank for the first time in a long time. And she reunites with Charles, and deals with a lot of unresolved conflict with him. His world view is more challenged by this film than any of the other movies, so there’s emotional drama in that storyline.
Is this your last X- Men film?
You never say never. I love the family of these movies, the cast and crew. We all treated this movie as the end of a trilogy, but you never know…
