So, we are pretty sure that by now the majority of you have had the chance to see X-Men: Days of Future Past, which has a mixture of the original X-Men cast with the new X-Men stars, so we will we will not be able to spoil anything for anyone. If we do, then we apologise. In the original X-Men movies, actress Rebecca Romijn played the role of Mystique, while Jennifer Lawrence has taken on the character in the new X-Men films, but which actress plays the role the best?
Well, it is fair to say that Rebecca Romijn played a fantastic Mystique in the original X-Men trilogy and got pretty much all of the character traits to perfection. Rebecca gave us that ruthless evil streak that Mystique is well-known for, along with that interestingly unique, sarcastic vibe along the way. It was a real shame that she had to be replced but needs must and all that.
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is obviously one of the best actresses in the industry but her performances as Mystique have had mixed feelings from the X-Men fans. While some feel that Jennifer plays a good Mystique, there are others who do not feel that she was believable as becoming that ruthless killer that Rebecca Romijn gave us. Either way, we love Jennifer Lawrence.
Going on what the fans and critics say, it would have to be said that Rebecca Romijn is a better Mystique that Jennifer Lawrence but we have not given up on Jennifer yet. Lawrence will reprise the role of Mystique in the movie X-Men: Apocalypse and we have no doubt that she will be able to win the critics over with her performance.
Who do you think plays a better Mystique in the X-Men movies?
