I recently posted the news that Rosamund Pike was going to play the saucy telepath, Emma Frost. She’s all corsets and knickers and would make for an interesting visual on screen, but Pike never seemed the right fit for the role.
Emma Frost aka The White Queen was originally a villain of the X-Men, but she eventually changed sides and ended up going out with Cyclops.
One of the top telepaths in the Marvel Universe she also has the ability to turn to living diamond making her super tough – a version of her was seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. She is also a manipulative scheming siren and if done correctly could bring an interesting dynamic to Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class.
Eve would be a good fit for the role as not only is she physically a good match for Frost she is also a great actress. Plus she is British so if they go with the plummy English tones that you get from Frost in the comic (well at least I get that) she could pull it off with ease.
If she gets the part she will join Michael Fassbender as Magneto and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier. She has already worked with McAvoy in Starter for 10. The cast is shaping up nicely and, if Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman write an adaption as good as Kick-Ass we should be in for a treat….plus Alice Eve dressed as the White Queen….did it just get hot in here?
X-Men: First Class is due out on 3rd June 2011
Do you think Eve is the right choice for Emma Frost? What other characters do you want to see in the film?
