Looks Like Emma Frost Will Be In X-Men: First Class
Why is this coming up? According to Forces of Geek (via SupherHeroHype), Rosamund Pike (Surrogates) was seen in a casting director's office (who worked as Matthew Vaughn's casting director for Kick-Ass and Stardust). That may not say much but she was seen with the recent X-Men Origins: Emma Frost comic.
Yes, that's how rumors get started. Hopefully we'll find out real soon since the movie is set to be released on just under one year now. Do you think Emma Frost has a place in this movie or should the focus be on the original five. Also, if the movie is supposed to have film locations set in Central or South America, what the heck will the movie be about?
My question is this.. is this movie based of comic based.. cause if it's movie based.. the original five will not include Angle (X3), so my assumption would be Storm, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast (Maybe) and white queen... I say that due to Wolverine Origins were Professor X picked them up toward the end of the movie...

Unless first class is a reboot it couldn't be the original five.
However movie Frost woudl be younger than Pike, right?
Characters like Emma, Kitty Pryde, Wolverine, and Storm shouldn't come in until the sequel. First Class should focus on the first five X-Men (Cyclops, Jean, Beast, Iceman, and Angel), and Professor Xavier, plus Magneto and some of the earlier members of the Brotherhood.

Only time will tell, but seeing some of this I'm not sure I'm getting any warm and fuzzy's
What a stupid idea. If they want to use Emma so badly then they should either make a White Queen or Hell Fire Club movie instead of screwing with the X-Men's origin story. On second thought after watching X-Men: The Last Stand it may not matter what they do in comic book movies anymore. Just as long as the movie sells tickets.
Actually, if this is in the same continuity as the rest of the X-films it makes a whole lot of sense (granted, it's a horrible idea)
Iceman and Angel can't be in First Class if they keep continuity.
Jean and Scott are among Xavier's first students.
It's suggested strongly that Storm and Beast could also be among the first.
Jason Stryker would have been possible, but he was frozen at the time of the Wolverine film, prior to the formation of the X-Men.
Kayla's sister Emma (we'd assume Emma Frost as she's blonde and turns into diamond) helped get the young mutants off of the island alongside Scott and Xavier.
Therefore, some version of Emma was present when Scott met the professor. It's possible that with Kayla dead, Emma might want to fight against the possibility of mutants being rounded up and experimented on by the government. She could either train with Xavier or help out as one of the teachers.
While I think it's time to pull the plug on this franchise after the last two releases (and this one doesn't promise to be any better) I know it's not going to happen. That being the case, if internal franchise continuity stays intact, Emma Frost is worlds more possible for First Class than Iceman or Angel.

"Couldn't have said it better myself!
I don't care if it's canon. I'm happy and actually my interest in the movie just jumped infinitely. With one HUGE caveat. If they try and make Emma a love interest of Professor Xavier or Magneto. You will not get me anywhere near that movie. I will never watch that movie That was the reason I never bought any of the Ultimate X-Men comics.
I thought the actress they selected for Emma in the Wolverine Origin's movie was pretty, I just hope they drop that blasted relationship as Silver Fox's sister.
hmm, if it's a real first class story, she could be in and not screw things up
but she'd better not have diamond powers before she's supposed to
she should be psychic now, and diamond later
it's sort of a huge a part of her character's development and eventual benediction
I think that they have it sort of wrong just because Emma wouldn't make sense, but that hasn't stopped them before.
Instead I think she will play Moira MacTaggert, Charles's former lover and helped create the Danger Room. That would make a better casting choice for the movie because it seems that it will focus more on the creation of the team with these "older" actors leading the way. She also had a son, forgot the name, that was a mutant with Charles that had the power to warp reality.
I'm thoroughly confused now. How old exactly are Chuck and Mags supposed to be in this adaptation? I've also seen on this site somewhere that Aaron Johnson might be Cyclops or Iceman (just a rumor i guess)....so what would the age difference be between the original team and the mentor? If Emma DOES show up, I hope it's as a villain or maybe just a cameo setting up for stories to come.
This would fit in with the Ultimate Marvel. In that universe Prof X and Emma Frost are ex-spouses.
WOuld make sense since all the reboots/cartoons/movies etc. have an aspect of Ultimate marvel to introduce chars to younger viewers.
Spectacular Spider-Man , Black Nick Fury, Super Hero Squad etc
If they're to maintain the film franchise's continuity, it makes sense that Emma is in First Class. Since X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes place before any X-Men movie so far, then Emma and Scott being picked up by a WALKING Charles falls in line with Emma being part of the original team.
This could also add to Jean joining the team and a love triangle between the three youngsters occurs. When Scott picks Jean, Emma chooses to leave (explaining why she was not part of the X-Men trilogy).
Also, seeing as how Beast and Storm had a preexisting friendship in X3, it would make sense if Beast was part of the team once and simply left to work as the mutant-human liaison to the President. We know Beast is not violent by nature so he maybe felt he can better serve his community in the White House.
And obviously, Angel can't be part of this movie (like he was in the comics) because we already know that in X3, it was the first time any of them met him. And Iceman, although part of the trilogy, was only a young student, so he can't be part of the original team.
I REALLY wish Marvel Studios will one day soon get the rights back so they can retcon this thing and do it right. I know this franchise is BIG money for Fox so I doubt they'd give it up without a fight. Here's hoping Disney steps in and gets it.
Anyone know if there is a "deadline" for Fox's rights to the X-Men films? I know that part of the deal is if they keep making movies, they retain the rights. But is there an ultimate expiry date to this deal or is it for as long as they keep making them, they keep the franchise at Fox?
The ages of all the acters are confusing
Professor X and Magneto look like there 20
Emma looks 30 if thats the actress whos playing her
Its just confusing me shouldnt Emma be a teenager if this is Xmen First Class
WTF is Emma even doing in this film she didnt join the xmen till Morrisons run
Unless they make her a villain that be cool
WOW!!!! Can we all just agree this whole thing is just one giant disaster. I totally learned my lesson with wolverine origins (and that movie had way more time to be completed). No more marvel prequel movies for me. Hopefully more people follow me lead and not go see this mess no matter how good they make the trailers look. By hurting their wallets that'll teach them to put out shitty half-assed movies. Remember they hook you with the trailers people.
I think they could set up that Emma tried to start her own school or was maybe there helping out in the creation of the X-Men like Magneto (only not as big a part as Magneto or Xavier).
Wait, wasn't ultimate Emma Frost there with Xavier at the beginning of the X-Men? Are they going the Ultimate rout with this movie too?
I think Marvel should re-obtain the rights to the X-Men... wait until after Avengers comes out. Reboot the Franchise (I know... I know.. I used the evil R-Word). Have the X-Men First Class movie come out in 2013 with the original 5 X-Men with a planned Trilogy, showing a progression in use and control of their Mutant abilities and lead into an explosive Third Movie Deadly Genesis Story-Arc, for a possible Fourth Movie, debuting the new Team, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, for a possible Fourth movie.
I was thinking something similar, but maybe do a Smallville/Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Heroes type TV drama with the X-Men that would focus on the Xavier Institute and not have costumes.
Season one would be the original 5 and establish everything, Season two would bring in mutants from around the world (Wolverine, Storm, Thunderbird, Banshee, Sunfire, Nightcrawler)
I don't want to see Emma Frost in this film, I agree with the Moira's cast theory, this would make a lot of sense, but Emma is one of my favourites characters and putting her on the initial 5 x-men would make no sense with this character: I want it to be a reboot, so Iceman and Angel with the original x-men would be perfect.
Rosamund was on a James Bond film (with storm xD) where she was names Miss Frost if I remember well, and at some point she is called Ice Queen, in fact when I saw this fil I thought she would be good as a candidate for Emma's part, but not on this film, if she is supossed to be on the same age range than Scott (both on comics and on film universe) why pick an actress that was born on the same year than James McAvoy who is playing Xavier's part...
Just a thought after wolverine movie: According to this movie, if Scott end up with Frost on this universe... that would make Wolverine and Cyclops brothers-in-law of their respective girls... lol how much I hate the mess this films are...
