More X-MEN Casting, Some Confusion
From SuperheroHype and other online sources comes even more X-MEN: FIRST CLASS casting news, some of it a bit perplexing.
January Jones (MAD MEN) will apparently play the role of Emma Frost, although Alice Eve had previously been announced as cast as that character.
Teen actor Bill Milner will play a younger Magneto and 10-year-old Morgan Lily (2012) will be the young Raven Darkhölme, aka Mystique. (Jennifer Lawrence will play the adult version.)
Some reports say 22-year-old Zoë Kravitz (Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet’s daughter) has been announced as protraying Angel — though in the comics (and X-MEN: THE LAST STAND) Angel was the male character Warren Worthington III. Perhaps she’s actually playing another role?
Will update when the dust settles.
UPDATE: It’s possible Zoë Kravitz is going to play the fairly recent X-MEN addition Angel Salvadore, aka Tempest. If so, they’re really playing fast and loose with the comic book timeline.
