Rosamund Pike and Michael Fassbender eying roles in X-Men: First Class
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I think the best part of superhero movies is the casting buzz that surrounds the film shortly after it’s announced. It’s fun to guess who will play all of our favorite characters. As of now, Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming X-MEN: FIRST CLASS only has one confirmed cast member and that’s James McAvoy as Professor X. But now we get rumors that Rosamund Pike might possibly be appearing in the film as Emma Frost. The reasoning is a little weak, but I guess if you see an actress carrying around comic books and spending time with the director, you can make the guess she’s in talks for the role.
There’s also talk that Michael Fassbender might be joining the film as Magneto, but the same source claims he’s in talks for the villain in the Spider-Man reboot. He couldn’t take on both roles, so he would have to choose which one to do. I like Fassbender, but I don’t know if I see him as a young Magneto.
