Is a “Mystique” spin-off in the works?
Entertainment Weekly may have just discovered a potential spin-off for Fox’s “X-Men” franchise.
While talking to “X-Men: Days of Future Past” producer Lauren Shuler Donner she stated, “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. I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters.”
While Deadpool and Gambit aren’t news writer and producer Simon Kinberg, who is tasked with developing a shared cinematic universe for Fox, stated, ” 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.”
