To kick off the week, I thought I'd start with a little geekitude! There's a movie coming out called X-Men: First Class. It's all about the original 5 X-Men (Cyclops, Ice Man, Beast, Angel, and Jean Grey) when they were first learning how to be superheroes. Apparently, the story will also require a young Charles Xavier/Professor X and a young Magneto.
What I am thrilled about, though, beyond all else (though the young Jean Grey tickles my fancy) is the inclusion of Emma Frost. If you don't know who I'm talking about and/or have never read the actual comics, let me explain. Emma Frost has the telepathic prowess of Charles Xavier, the genius intellect of Hank McCoy, the strength and invulnerability of Colossus (in diamond form), and the body of Pamela Anderson...when Pamela Anderson didn't look like a middle-aged crack whore.
In short: she's bad ass.
Originally, Frost was a villain in charge of a rival school for mutants and the White Queen of the Hellfire Club, but then she reformed, actually joined the X-Men, and now heads up both the team and the school as headmistress. For reference, she looks a little something like this:
The actress Alice Eve (from She's Out of My League) has been cast to play the White Queen. And Alice looks a whole heck of a lot like this:
Hey Bryan Singer! Would you mind getting back to this franchise, please? The last two movies sucked balls, and the fans would love it if you would yank the X-Folks out of the proverbial shitter. K Thanks! Wow...I just followed the word 'proverbial' with 'shitter.' I really am a pretentious ass, aren't I?
Oh, wait... I did it again.
What do YOU think of this casting choice? Are YOU going to give the X-Franchise another shot after they murdered Wolverine & X3? Comment, Tweet, or Email!
Love and Lyte,
