X-maniacs were treated to a bit of eye candy on Monday, as an image was leaked of X-Men: First Class star Jennifer Lawrence in her full-body Mystique suit for the hit film's sequel.

Lawrence will be reprising her role from the original First Class, a film that found her just discovering her chameleon-like powers. Now comfortable in her skin and on the side of Michael Fassbender's young Magneto, Lawrence will likely play a key role in the plot of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

This isn't the first leaked image from the set of the highly-anticipated flick. Director Bryan Singer has previously tweeted images of him having lunch with the legendary Patrick Stewart (Professor X). Speaking of the great professor, images have been released of James McAvoy as a younger, long haired Charles Xavier, as well as an epic on-set shot of Nicholas Hoult (Hank McCoy/Beast) standing alongside Hugh Jackman, the eternal face of Wolverine who will get plenty of action later this summer in his own film.

The movie's title is inspired by a famous X-Men storyline of the same name that finds the mutant heroes warped into a dystopian future where they must fend for their lives. Singer is using the time-traveling storyline as inspiration for his film, which will find First Class actors such as Lawrence and Hoult standing alongside iconic X-Men stars such as Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ian McKellen (Magneto), and Halle Berry (Storm), who were the focal point of the original X-trilogy. 

Singer certainly has his work cut out for him, as he is using one of the most beloved X-Men stories as inspiration for a movie that differs rather significantly from the source material. However, given the success of First Class and the all-star cast of actors, Days of Future Past could end up being a classic hero flick when it hits theatres next year.

Are you skeptical about the movie's plot, or do these set photos have you clawing for more?
