ALTIn today’s dose of X-Men: First Class news, Jennifer Lawrence has been cast as the shape-shifter Mystique in the X-Men prequel. Lawrence, who is taking over the role played by Rebecca Romijn in the original series, has been nabbing rave reviews for her performance in new indie drama Winter’s Bone.

In its multitude of previous casting announcements, 20th Century Fox has reportedly been applying a misdirection campaign, reporting that actors have been cast as minor mutants in order to keep their true roles in the film a surprise. That’s probably not the case here, as Mystique would probably have a significant role in the film as one of Magneto’s henchmen.

Since we're on the verge of making a spreadsheet to keep track of X-Men: First Class casting news, here’s a breakdown of all the roles that have been cast so far.

James McAvoy- Professor Xavier

Michael Fassbender- Magneto

Kevin Bacon- possible villain

Caleb Landry Jones- Banshee

Nicholas Hoult- Beast

Alice Eve- Emma Frost

Lucas Til- Havok
