We already know a lot of the old X-Men will be coming back for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. We have confirmation on Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, and Hugh Jackman with promises of more to come. While it’s a surprise that many of the first trilogy team would be returning, a lot of people assumed the First Class cast would also be in tow. According to January Jones, who played the lovely Emma Frost, she hasn’t heard anything about returning.
The Mad Men actress spoke with Collider at the Sundance Film Festival where they asked her if she would be back as the White Queen:
I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one. Well they haven’t told me if I am (laughs). I wouldn’t put it past them though, I got the script for the first one on the airplane on the way there. It’s called Days of Future Past I think, and I think it’s more about James [McAvoy] and Michael [Fassbender] and then Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellan], and I think it’s gonna go back and forth with those so I don’t think Emma’s in those bits. I don’t know, I really don’t know.
At the end of the first film she was with the freshly helmeted Magneto in his Brotherhood of mutants, so it seemed like a good bet she’d return in some form or fashion. With production underway and major filming to start soon, the clock is ticking if they want Jones to return. What do you think? Were you hoping to see Emma Frost in Days of Future Past?
