'She is, in some ways, the child of both Erik and Charles.'

The upcoming 'X-Men: Apocalypse' blockbuster is set to focus even more on Jennifer Lawrence's developing Mystique character than previous films in the franchise, co-writer Simon Kinberg said in an interview with Adam Chitwood.

Kinberg, mentioned that the story would show how the relationship between Mystique and the Beast evolves over time.  Beast is played by Nicholas Hoult, who is Lawrence's off-screen boyfriend as well.

"The relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn't have a lot of time to explore in Days of Future Past so we'll have an opportunity to do more of that in Apocalypse," Kinberg told Collider.

The first movie was shown to be Magneto's story, while the second film 'Days of Future Past' was set to delve more into Charles Xavier's story and past.  The third film is set to show how each of the two influence Mystique in her choices as a mutant.

"Part of what's really interesting about Mystique's character is that she is, in some ways, the child of both Erik and Charles," he told the site. "She grew up with Charles and then she sort of became a woman with Erik, so her being the cross-pollination, if you will, of those two philosophies and those two men is something we can explore in the movie, too."

The third X-Men movie is set to be the final in a trilogy for the First Class characters.
"I will say that [X-Men: Apocalypse] is definitely the close of a trilogy for those First Class characters, which isn't to say we won't see them in future movies, hopefully we will, but it's a completion of an arc for them," he said. "I think that the friendship between Erik and Charles, which has always been so integral to the franchise, is something we're continuing to explore and hopefully deepen with Apocalypse."

Kinberg Also went on to speak about how they were going to make sure they have an even bigger set with better special effects than the previous two films.

“There are some very big set pieces.  I don’t know what the budget’s gonna be because we’re still a ways away from budgeting the film, but I can say that Fox has a lot of creative confidence in the team that made Days of Future Past—myself, Bryan, Lauren Shuler Donner, Hutch Parker.  All of those people are coming back so in terms of a sandbox they’re definitely giving us a lot of room to play creatively and take chances the way that we took some chances on Days of Future Past, and do some radical things just as I think we did some radical things in Days of Future Past.”
