Rosamund Pike as Emma Frost in X-Men First Class?

Why not, she’s already played one Frost onscreen (in the James Bond movie “Die Another Day”), so what’s one more in the old filmography? Plus, Rosamund Pike would just ooze credibility as the icy queen of the mutants, and if they can somehow convince her to slip into that … thing, whatever it’s called … that Emma Frost aka the White Queen wears, all the better! (See below for costume visualization.)

Word from geek site Forces of Geek is that Pike has tested for the role of Emma Frost in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming “X-Men: First Class”, and she might have already nabbed the role. Again, as is the case with all these mutant rumors, the word might is very important. She might have, she might not. Who knows? Actors test for roles all the time.

So who is Emma Frost? In the comics, Frost aka the White Queen is a mutant telepath who likes to dress in as little as possible, with a penchant for white (as per her name). She’s also something of a bitch, an ice queen if you will, and has been harassing the poor X-Men for years, before suddenly turning good in recent years, and as I recall, is actually now leading them. Say wha…? That’s comic books for ya, kids.

I’ve always been a fan of Rosamund Pike, and actually think she would make a pretty damn fine Emma Frost. Plus, that costume. Come on!

Cause nothing says evil like wearing almost nothing to do battle.

    She'd work but wouldn't that make her too old to be one of the X-men. They may have her running her own school as she did in the comics for a bit. She's around the same age as Fassbender, and McAvoy so that's why I say that.

    She's got that kind of face that doesn't lend itself to playing “younger”. I was surprised she's the same age as McAvoy actually. She could probably play his sister, probably even his mother.

    Exactly. So this has to be a reboot of the franchise and they're making Emma a contemporary of Xavier or something (maybe a love interest? telepathic lovers there's something you don't see everyday).
