January Jones Says She Doesn’t Think She’s in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Director Matthew Vaughn’s period superhero pic X-Men: First Class was a sizeable hit with both audiences and critics when it was released in 2011, and fans are very much looking forward to the Bryan Singer-helmed sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  We know that the follow-up will be a melding of the cast from First Class and the previous three X-Men films, with Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, and Hugh Jackman already confirmed to appear alongside James McAvoyMichael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence.

I had the chance to speak with January Jones earlier today at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival about her upcoming western/thriller Sweetwater, and with production getting ready to begin on Days of Future Past, I asked her about the return of her character Emma Frost from First Class.  Jones revealed that she hasn’t been contacted about reprising that role in DOFP, saying that she doesn’t think she’s in the sequel.  Hit the jump for what she had to say.

“I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one.  Well they haven’t told me if I am (laughs).  I wouldn’t put it past them though, I got the script for the first one on the airplane on the way there.  It’s called Days of Future Past I think, and I think it’s more about James [McAvoy] and Michael [Fassbender] and then Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellan], and I think it’s gonna go back and forth with those so I don’t think Emma’s in those bits.  I don’t know, I really don’t know.”

With Singer bringing back so many characters from the previous X-Men films for the time travel/alternate reality-geared Days of Future Past, it’s not exactly a shock that a supporting character like Frost isn’t returning.  That being said, I was interested in seeing how the character’s relationship with Fassbender’s Magneto would be further developed,  so hopefully we’ll see the return of Emma Frost somewhere down the line.

Look for my full interview with Jones on the site soon.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on July 18, 2014.
