Alice Eve to play Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class

by Matthew Price Published: June 28, 2010

The Heat Vision blog reports that Alice Eve, who recently starred in “She’s Out of My League,” has signed on to play Emma Frost in “X-Men: First Class.”   Eve had also been a candidate to play Captain America’s love interest in the “Captain America: First Avenger” film.

The “First Class” film will feature a younger incarnation of the well-known mutants.  Michael Fassbender has signed on to play Magneto, and James McAvoy to play Professor X.  Matthew Vaughn will direct.

Emma Frost, aka the White Queen, began as an X-Men villain who was a member of the Hellfire Club and led a group called the Hellions against the New Mutants.  But she later became a mentor to the young mutants of “Generation X,” and later became a key member of the X-Men during Grant Morrison’s “New X-Men” run.

She’s a telepath and in the comics is currently involved with Cyclops, aka Scott Summers.  And even for a comic-book heroine, she tends not to wear a whole lot of clothes.
