Because X-Men doesn't have enough spin-off movies already, Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique character may be getting a standalone film after Days of Future Past.

Wolverine has swiped at things and re-grown his beard of sorrow numerous times on the big screen, so it's really only fair that more of the mutants get a shot.

Lawrence is optioned for two more X-Men films after First Class (one of which is the upcoming Days of Future Past), with producers hinting that she could front a future title.

"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," producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who’s produced all of the X-Men films, told Inside Movies. "I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters."

Writer Adam 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."

Another outing as the all-blue Mystique would mean more long days in make-up for Lawrence, with the character's body-painting process recently being described as: "One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her."
