FOG! EXCLUSIVE! Rosamund Pike To Enlist In X-Men: First Class as EMMA FROST?

In attempt to stay a bit more accurate, I've hesitated to run speculation and rumor.

Note: I, too, had the Michael Fassbinder and Jamie Bell rumors in my inbox.

And there are two other names attached to Magneto that I might share with you later this week.

Nevertheless, one of my FOG! Operatives in Jolly Ole England passed along some fairly solid information regarding Rosamund Pike testing and very possibly being cast in the role of Emma Frost in the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie.

Apparently, Pike (who appeared in Die Another Day, An Education and Pride and Prejudice), who has been a fan favorite for the role, was spotted around Lucinda Syson's offices. Lucinda worked as First Class director Matthew Vaughn's casting director on Kick-Ass and Stardust.

And according to our operative, Pike was carrying a copy of this comic with her....

More details are promised soon (including which of Rosamund's former co-stars might be Magneto...)
