The wonderful Jennifer Lawrence is at the height of her game. An Oscar under her belt, an incredible slew of films coming out and the love and respect of critics and fans alike for being a class act. She will next been seen in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", reprising her role as the strong yet vulnerable Katniss Everdeen. We will also be reunited with her portrayal of another fantastic femme fatale as Raven/Mystique in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

The character of Mystique is a fascinating one indeed and we got a taste of her backstory in Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class". She was originally a friend and companion to Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) before eventually embracing her dark side and going over to Magneto's (Michael Fassbender) team. We got a glimpse of the evil assassin Mystique in Singer's earlier "X-Men" films, as played by Rebecca Romijin. Now Lawrence reveals that we will start to see even more of the evolution of the character with this new film.

Lawrence stated, "We find Raven, she's split off from Eric and Charles and she's kind of her own agent. She has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody and it will be her first kill basically, and because we've seen her in the future and what she becomes and this is kind of a turning point for her."

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
