While speaking with Yahoo Movies at San Diego Comic-Con with her fellow co-stars, Jennifer Lawrence let slip that she would be open to doing more X-Men movies. According to the three actors, all of their contracts expire after X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 26th, 2017.
In the interview, Lawrence began in her usual joking manner when asked of the possibility:
“I told Fox not to not ask me,” while Michael Fassbender responded, “Because you want to have the option to turn them down?” and Lawrence responded again with: “I kind of want to bait them with a text and then when they call me, I go, ‘Don’t call me!’ and then hang up. I don’t know — I love doing these movies.”
It would be no surprise for Lawrence to continue as the X-Men movies were partially responsible for her spark of popularity in Hollywood with audiences. She went on and continued about how much she loved the franchise. The studio would really have to up the ante, as the Hollywood Reporter reported on a rumor of Lawrence being payed $20 million.
