RAVEN GOOD­BYE?

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…
