The newest rumors are that Rosamund Pike, who was being rumored earlier for Emma Frost (who has no business in First Class) is actually up for the part of Moira McTaggert – Professor X’s ex-squeeze. I don’t know how I feel about this until I hear her Scottish accent. If she doesn’t do a good “Chahhhles,” then pass!
The second rumor is that Fox has Amber Heard in mind for a young Mystique. No word as to weather this will be a movie X-Men looking Mystique or one that looks more like the comics. I don’t know this girl’s acting ability, so you guys need to weigh in – is this a good pic? the only problem I have is that she looks very young. While this is First Class, Mystique is a lot older than the X-Men and is said to use her power to cover her age and also have a power that helps her to not age more recently. So Mystique NOW could be 100 years old, meaning Mystique 20 years ago wouldn’t necessarily look so young. Maybe I’m over-thinking it. Thoughts?
