Rebecca Romijn Reveals If She Would Play Mystique in the MCU’s X-Men Lineup

Posted 2022/04/22 13 0


Back in 2000, Rebecca Romijn caused quite a stir with her appearance as the blue-skinned shape-shifting villain Mystique in the original X-Men movie. Having appeared in the first two sequels and having a short cameo in X-Men: First Class, the role was also played by Jennifer Lawrence as a younger version of the character. Now with Patrick Stewart seemingly set to reprise his role of Charles Xavier, or a version of him, in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is not surprising that Romijn has been asked whether she would return to the role in the MCU.

During a recent conversation with, Romijn was asked if she had any desire to reprise her role, which most of the time saw her wearing a strategically placed set of make-up applications and not much else. To her credit, the near-50-year-old former model seemed to be more than up for the challenge, despite it being well over a decade since she last played the character, but only if Marvel Studios wanted her. She said:

PeraMovies News VIDEO OF THE DAY

“I don’t know if they would ever want me back. I mean, that was quite a few years back when I played that character, but I would love to, yeah, absolutely. It was a fantastic franchise to be a part of. I’ll love that cast until the day I die. We had a great time together. And yeah, I would absolutely be open to that.”

While it seems unlikely that Romijn would be asked to reprise her role in any long-term capacity, the fraying of reality in the MCU at the moment means that anything is possible. Even with a new line-up of X-Men coming soon, there is always potential for older variants to make brief cameos at any time.

Marvel Studios is Taking its Time Rebooting the X-Men Franchise

The merger of The Walt Disney Company and 20th Century Fox in 2019 meant that Marvel Studios had their lost franchises like Deadpool, Fantastic Four and X-Men all delivered back to them to be used as desired in any future MCU projects. While Ryan Reynolds has teased the MCU future of Deadpool and Marvel itself has hinted that the Fantastic Four will be arriving in the next couple of years, the X-Men’s return has been spoken about very little other than many rumors about who could be taking over the role of Wolverine from Hugh Jackman.

There is a lot to be considered when it comes to bringing the mutant group into the MCU, and like everything Marvel Studios has a hand in, nothing is rushed. That means that there is groundwork to be done first to allow the X-Men to integrate with the existing characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a pretty full slate of movies already expected to arrive in the next two years, it is likely to be well into 2024 or 2025 before we see a sight of the X-Men being fully incorporated into the Marvel timeline.

In theory, Marvel has already been teasing mutants for some time, with Evan Peters appearing as Wanda Maximoff’s brother in the false reality of WandaVision and several other mutants being hinted at throughout the Marvel Universe. With Patrick Stewart’s Professor X making an appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, more questions about the mutant world are coming.
