The X-Men: First Class sequel directed by Matthew Vaughn, which Jennifer Lawrence had committed to long before The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has gotten its release date.
You’ll be able to see Lawrence reprising her role as Mystique, with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as Magneto and Professor Xavier respectively, on July 18, 2014.
Catching Fire lost director Gary Ross because Lawrence’s agreement for the First Class sequel forced her to have to film the former film first. Ross didn’t like the little amount of time he had to work with.
