Amber Heard and Rosamund Pike being considered for roles in X-Men: First Class

Just last week, there was a rumor floating around the net that Rosamund Pike (AN EDUCATION, DOOM) was presumably testing for the role of Emma Frost in Matthew Vaughn's X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. Well, according to Production Weekly, Pike is involved with the mutant project, but instead she's reportedly being looked at for the role of Professor Xavier's colleague and confidante Moira McTaggert. This makes much more sense than Emma Frost and would actually be a pretty good fit.

And if perhaps you were somehow running low on boners, Production Weekly is also saying that the delectable Amber Heard (THE RUM DIARY, THE STEPFATHER) is being strongly considered by Fox for the role of Mystique. No complaints here.

But Production Weekly also makes a weird note regarding Michael Fassbender, saying that despite Fox's interest in the actor for the role of Magneto, Fassbender apparently isn't interested in testing for the part. The actor is also reportedly being sought after for the role of an unnamed villain in the Spidey reboot, so perhaps that has something to do with it? Fassbender's name has been all over the movie webs of late and the man certainly has a potentially busy schedule just this year: He's currently filming David Cronenberg's A DANGEROUS METHOD alongside Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley, and he could be gearing up as soon as this September for the adaptation of TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY.

Not bad casting choices, but I still don't know if this is suppose to be a reboot or prequel. I still think Tom Hardy should be Magneto though.

I really don't understand First Class as a movie, especially with how royally FOX has managed to screw themselves with the X-Men time line. What happens if this movie does good and they decide they want to make a First Class 2? The actors will eventually be just as old as the people who played those characters in the first X-Men movie, time lines are bound to overlap and I'm sure some major inconsistencies will pop up between this and the first three films.

I guess this is what you get

I guess this is what you get when you're FOX and you choose to focus on the "right now" instead of planning for movies a little down the road. Deadpool anyone?

I'm still hoping this movie washes the taste of shit and dirty hooker out of my mouth that The Last Stand and Wolverine left there.

I really hope this movie does well and hopefully it gives the X-Men a good name again, but part of me still can't get that excited for it, and the X-Men are my favorite comic superheroes. The only positive thing I am holding on to is Vaughn and McAvoy. Hopefully, I am wrong when I see the trailer.

Mandy Lane all the way!

Pike would make a great Frost, so i'm all for it. But i would love to see Amber Heard do the blue thing...it would add so much promise to the film, thats already turning out to be going pretty well...I wonder if Fassbender is Going to be Magneto though.

Not bad, Moira and Mystique make sense. They're really going young on this, that could be either really good or bad (interesting nevertheless).

I REALLY like Rosamund Pike, she's always a notable presence, even in small roles and IMO, she completely stole An Education with her wonderfully dimwitted performance. If she's in a movie, I'm certainly interested.
