January Jones is the real Emma Frost (and does a good job)

“X-Men: First Class” producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke to IAmRogue and cleared up the confusion regarding the other Emma Frost (played by Tahyna Tozzi) in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” She also thinks Jones did a “pretty good job” in the role.

Donner: No, she’s Emma from First Class. That’s who she was and she’s the real Emma Frost. I think January did a pretty good job of portraying her.

So there is no connection between the First Class Emma Frost and the one we see in X-Men Origins: Wolverine?

Donner: No … not really, no.

During the X-Perts Facebook campaign, Bryan Singer also said liberties were taken for the advancement of the story – which can be found in the FAQ.

“X-Men: First Class” comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray September 9, 2011!

    Well, apparently a lot of people involved with the films think otherwise. One of the official trailers for Origins specifically referred to her as ‘Emma Frost.’ On the First Class Blu-Ray extra Cerebro thing, on Emma’s video/background, there’s a picture of Origins Emma along with FC Emma, indicating they’re obviously the same character. This producer is either just trying to play it off, or is really uninformed.

    She was clearly intended to be Emma Frost when the movie was first released.

    If they want to change their minds now (assuming this is the same persons who made Origins), I guess that’s their prerogative.  Does not change the material already out there though, no more than OMD actually erased the spider-marriage from all existing comic books :)

    I have to disagree. She’s no Emma Frost.

    I must have seen a different film. The Emma I saw in First Class had none of the fire or personality that the character is famous for.

    Watch Tahyna Tozzi in an Australian film called ‘Beautiful’. She plays a manipulative little vixen who messes with the lives of those around her. She would have made a great Emma if given the chance again.

    As an avid Emma Frost fan, I didn’t like January Jones’ portrayal of her. Yes, Emma is a cold, diamond-hard woman, but inside there is a fire that burns and ignites all of her convictions. The director obviously forgot about the latter.

    i think the girl is years after First Class and that is actually Frost’s daughter and that’s how they are going to tie it in the next film
