Alice Eve has been cast as “Emma Frost” in Matthew Vaughn’s highly anticipated superhero flick X-Men: First Class.
The actress joins the previously announced Michael Fassbender as “Magneto” and James McAvoy as “Professor X”.
The film will chart the epic beginning of the “X-Men” saga and follow Xavier and Magneto, who turn from being close friends and allies, into bitter enemies.
X-Men: First Class is currently set to explode onto screens on June 3, 2011.
In comics lore, Frost was originally a villain called the White Queen who eventually became a member of X-Men, then a teacher at Xavier’s School of Gifted Students.
