Speaking to HitFix about Hunger Games, the conversation briefly touched on her return to the world of X-Men. Nothing too surprising here, basically Lawerence stated that if she doesn't know a whole lot at this point but if she's written into the script then she'll definitely return.

"It's a cool thing," Lawrence said of her "First Class" experience. "It wasn't until later, [that I thought]..."I'm Mystique. That's a cool...she's kind of like a historic superhero, and that's really important to a lot of people, and these comics have been around for so long. It was a cool thing to be a part of."
X-Men: First Class is a 2011 American superhero film directed by Matthew Vaughn and produced by Bryan Singer, based on the X-Men characters appearing in Marvel Comics. The fifth installment in the X-Men series, the film acts as a prequel for the X-Men trilogy, being set primarily in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It focuses on the relationship between Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr (Magneto), and the origin of their groups—the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants, respectively. The film stars James McAvoy as Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Lensherr. Other cast members include Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoë Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till.
Announced in 2006, First Class entered production in August 2010 and finished in December, with additional photography taking up up to three weeks before the film's premiere in June 2011. Locations included Oxford, the Mojave desert and Georgia, with soundstage work in both Pinewood Studios and the 20th Century Fox stages in Los Angeles. The film received positive reviews and was a box-office success with earnings of $353 million worldwide.
