Rebecca Romijn, who's known for playing the shapeshifter Mystique in the original trilogy (2000–2006) of Fox's X-Men movie series, also made a brief cameo in X-Men: First Class (2011). In 2007, she married actor Jerry O'Connell, who's well-known for his roles in Stand By Me (1986), Sliders (1995-1997), Joe's Apartment (1996), Scream 2 (1997), and more recently, Star Trek: Lower Decks. From what we've seen in their interviews, it's clear that couple love having fun together, and at Houston's Comicpalooza, O'Connell showed his silly side again by cosplaying as Mystique.

In the Instagram post's caption, Romijn joked, "Who wore it best? Last time I invite @mrjerryoc to @houstoncomicpalooza." Check out the post here:

While O'Connell's Mystique costume isn't as brilliant as his wife's Mystique look, it's a hilarious nod to her iconic X-Men role. Sadly, there's no official confirmation of Romijn's possible return as Mystique in Deadpool & Wolverine or any future X-Men project. In 2011, Jennifer Lawrence took over her role as the younger version of Mystique in X-Men: First Class despite Romijn's brief cameo.

Rebecca Romijn opened up about her bad experience working with X-Men: The Last Stand director

In an interview with The Independent last year, Rebecca Romijn said that she had bad experiences working with Brett Ratner, the director who replaced Bryan Singer for 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, revealing that she had "major issues" with the filmmaker.

“I was not happy working with him,” Romijn said. “But he’s been cancelled. I haven’t spoken up about anything with regard to #MeToo, because I had two major issues with two directors I’ve worked with – and both of them already got theirs, one of them being Brett Ratner.”

However, the 51-year-old actress didn't share any further details since Ratner had already been "canceled" after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct. “I didn’t feel like I needed to say anything," Romijn continued. "I know the two people that I worked with had it coming, and they got theirs. I’m not gonna... I don’t need to say anything else."

When asked about Bryan Singer, the director of the two X-Men films before X-Men: The Last Stand, Romijn said that he's a "fantastic filmmaker" despite being known as another controversial director.

"It was amazing watching him work," Romijn continued. "And you have to decide if you want to try and separate those two things. I know that the other cast confronted him about things. But I was not a part of that. I wasn't there for it, so I can't really speak to it."

We can expect Marvel Studios to announce its upcoming X-Men project in the near future. The only update we got Michael Lesslie, the script writer of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, was reportedly tapped to pen the script for the upcoming X-Men movie.
