Jennifer Lawrence Posts ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ New Clip: See Mutant Fight Club Scene!
Jennifer Lawrence has posted a new clip from the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse on her Facebook page. The clip features the full version of the “mutant fight club” scene from the trailers showing a desperate Nightcrawler trying to escape.Advertisement
According to Gizmodo, other than Mystique’s impressive fighting skills – knocking a man out cold in one swift motion – the short clip establishes Kurt Wagner’s character. He shows his well-known pacifist side, as he quickly chooses to evade Angel’s aggression rather than confront him.
He displays his classic swashbuckling style reminiscent of Errol Flynn as he teleports inside the cage. Angel, on the other hand, chases him utilizing his flight powers to catch up with Nightcrawler’s teleportation.
It is not known whether Angel is forced to participate, since it is not known how he got into the ring. Nightcrawler’s entrance, on the other hand, is pretty clear on the fact that he was placed there against his will.
Nerdist reported that the clip also highlights the heroic side of Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique. Her desire to free other mutants is already apparent during X-Men: Days of Future Past, although this is more obvious in X-Men: Apocalypse.
This, shown by her apparent disgust in the way Nightcrawler is forced to fight for other’s amusement. Having seen enough, he turns toward the generator powering the electric cage and, after knocking out the guard, shuts it down.
In this film, Mystique will rejoin with Charles Xavier to battle the first and most powerful mutant in history. They will be joined by other X-Men as they prevent Apocalypse and his four horsemen from remaking the world in his own image.
This will be the biggest movie of the mutant franchis, not just in terms of budget. The stakes are very high for the characters, with the threat of worldwide destruction a certainty should they fail.
X-Men: Apocalypse will be the last time Jennifer Lawrence plays Mystique and is set for release on May 27, 2016.
