Apocalypse was originally going to be Jennifer Lawrence's swan song as Raven/Mystique. However, she reveals why she decided to return for this film in an interview with Digital Spy.

She made a very good point in the last few sentences. I'm glad that she's coming back because Raven/Mystique and Katniss Everdeen are the roles that made me such a huge fan of her acting. Plus, if she could play the latter in four films, then she could do the same for the former. They are the roles that made her huge name in mainstream media. I also loved her performances in Silver Lining Playbook and American Hustle. Plus, it really feels more complete now that she, McAvoy, Fassbender and Hoult will have four films in this franchise under their belt like most members of the original cast did.
