For those of you who’ve been waiting to see Jennifer Lawrence wearing a body suit and dressed up as Mystique on the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, then today is your lucky day, as director Bryan Singer has revealed a picture of the Oscar winning actress.

Singer posted the picture of J-Law on Twitter, accompanying it with the caption "First look: #JenniferLawrence as a vengeful #Mystique. #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast". The big news is that it is a change from the body paint that she wore during X-Men: First Class – with Rebecca Romijn also going for the paint look in the original X-Men films last decade. Lawrence’s picture is one of numerous posted by Singer on his Twitter.

The film has been in some stage of development since 2006, with pre-production finally getting under way at the end of 2011. The superstar cast is going to feature Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender among others. Filming only got under way for the film, which is scheduled for a 2014 release, with some of the locations being used so far including Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.
