‘X-Men: First Class’ Casting News

January Jones is in and Alice Eve is out as Emma Frost in ‘X-Men: First Class.’  The reason? Scheduling conflicts, which is starting to become the “irreconcilable differences” of casting.

Also joining the team are Zoe Kravitz as Angel, which she’ll undoubtedly play with androgynous chic considering Angel is originally a male character, and Bill Milner as a young Magneto.

If you’re no longer keeping up with Matthew Vaughn’s marathon casting, Jones, Kravitz and Milner now join James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon, Michael Fassbender, Oliver Pratt, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne.

    It’s so odd that they cast Zoe Kravitz as Angel, like you said, it’s a male character in the comic books. I heard that she would be playing Storm, which has to be better than Halle Berry (I’m not a fan, lol)

    I’ll chalk it up to the “They are making their own interpretation of X Men”, but it’s still odd to me.
