Jennifer Lawrence Wants Mystique to Join the Guardians of the Galaxy
Passengers is now officially less than a week away from premiering. However, co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt have more in common than just the rapidly approaching sci-fi film; they also have roles as prominent Marvel characters, albeit in totally different fictional universes. Of course, Pratt is Star Lord, the almost fearless leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Lawrence is (or was?) Mystique, having played sizable roles in all of the main X-Men films in the McAvoy/Fassbender era. In a recent promotion for Passengers, the two discussed their comic book counterparts, and if it was even a remote possibility that they could get their way, Mystique would be joining the Guardians for some high-action space adventures.    



Though the two are obviously kidding around, the probability of this crossover ever happening rests slightly above zero. Of course, with the rights to the mutants still being held by Fox, seeing Mystique and Star Lord on the same theater screen is virtually an impossibility, unless the MCU and the X-Men universe are able to strike a deal. From all indications, however, there is little chance of that ever happening.    

There's been some talk about whether or not Lawrence will reprise her role as Mystique; though reports have been circulating that she will, it doesn't seem like she's particularly enthusiastic about it. In the video above, she plainly says she "won't" play Mystique in the X-Men films. Whether that was simply intended as a joke (she won't play an X-Men character in an X-Men film but she will play an X-Men character in a Guardians film), or if it was meant soberly is somewhat unclear. On the other hand, Pratt will be reprising his role as Star Lord in the upcoming year, as James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is due out on May 5th.  

Passengers hits theaters on December 21st.
