Romantic scenes don’t usually include a character saying, “Go ahead, take the blood.” This new clip from X-Men: First Class shows a scene in which Mystique, played by Jennifer Lawrence, says just that to Nicholas Hoult‘s Hank McCoy, and does so while they sit on a barely-subliminal sexual set. The clip is a follow-up to yesterday’s excerpt introducing McCoy to the gang, with Mystique immediately intrigued by the scientist well before he grows blue fur and sharp fangs. It’s the third clip released from the film so far, and Mystique has appeared in all three.
Some of this clip, which obviously comes from Access Hollywood, could be considered spoilery, but it’s vague and free enough of context.
Though they’re supporting characters in the ensemble cast of First Class, both Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Houltare currently filming lead roles in high-profile projects due next year. Lawrence is playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, director Gary Ross‘s anticipated adapation of the popular novel by Suzanne Collins. Hoult, meanwhile,will portray the title character in Jack the Giant Killer, the 3D fantasy adventure from Bryan Singer, the responsible for the first two X-Men films.
Singer’s has a story credit and is an producer on X-Men: First Class, which is directed by Matthew Vaughn. The prequel stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Lucas Till, Rose Byrne, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones, and Zoe Kravitz. The June 3rd release date is just around the corner, so you start working on those Wolverine-style muttonchops right about now.
