Lawrence's Mystique 'spin-off plan'

Jennifer Lawrence's X-Men character could get her own spin-off.

The Oscar-winning actress plays Mystique and it seems the franchise's producers think the shapeshifter could follow in the footsteps of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and get her own standalone movie.

Producer/writer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly: "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."

X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has also indicated she would be interested in seeing Mystique in a solo project.

And she believes Gambit and Deadpool are also worthy of their films.

"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," she said.

"I'd like to do Gambit. I'd like to do Deadpool. We'll see. There's a lot of really great characters."

Jennifer will next be seen as mutant Raven Darkholme/Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
