January Jones Unsure Of Return As 'Emma Frost' In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

January Jones Unsure Of Return As 'Emma Frost' In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Despite having a major role in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, Mad Men actress January Jones currently has no idea whether she will be asked to reprise the role of 'Emma Frost' in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Read on for details!

Despite her critically acclaimed performance as 'Betty Draper' in AMC's Mad Men, January Jones's take on 'Emma Frost' in X-Men: First Class was met with something of a mixed reaction from fans and critics alike. At the conclusion of that movie, the character was seen alongside 'Magneto' and his Brotherhood of Mutants. Regardless, she told Collider at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival that we probably shouldn't expect to see her return in the highly anticipated sequel.

"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 and Michael and then Patrick and Ian, 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."

So, while she doesn't completely dismiss the possibility of making a return, it is a little strange that she hasn't been contacted about that by Fox at this point (especially as production is already in its early stages). The film is obviously going to be pretty packed out as it brings back the likes of Hugh Jackman's 'Wolverine', but could this mean that we won't see a few of the other characters introduced by Matthew Vaughn? How do you feel about the possibility of there not being an 'Emma Frost' in the sequel? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

She's tidy, but she was easily the weak link in the cast of first class. Much like cobie smulders was in the avengers.
cmay13 - 1/23/2013, 4:49 PM
Thank god she is one of the worst actresses in hollywood. If only Alice Eve had stayed on as frost for the first one..
CavEl - 1/23/2013, 4:54 PM
Did Fatty lose all her fattyness from the last season of Mad Men? Damn, she was fat in Mad Men.

And no, I'm not talking about a woman with meat on her bones. I'm talking fat...

I don't know if it was a fat suit or not, but o_0...

@ SpiderGuy - No, bro, Scarlett Johansson was the weak link in The Avengers...she was terrible.
thewonderer - 1/23/2013, 4:55 PM
She is so hot

oh well, ya'll dont watch Mad Men
DrDoom - 1/23/2013, 4:57 PM

I agree with you. Scarlett Johansson should never have been Black Widow. Considering how uniformally excellent the cast was, she stood out very much. As for January, she honestly was nothing like Emma Frost. She should have watched the Wolverine and the X-Men show to learn how Emma Frost is supposed to be.
PsyGuy - 1/23/2013, 4:58 PM
ugh. hope to never see her again.
BruceLeroy - 1/23/2013, 5:01 PM
You can tell this chick smashed her way into many of her roles. She's a pretty terrible actress.
Spideyguy94 - 1/23/2013, 5:03 PM
@PatriotsSuperguy I didn't think she was too bad, she was much worse in iron man 2, although she's nice to look at.
CoolantTech - 1/23/2013, 5:05 PM
I would only accept her back as Emma frost on 2 conditions... if she became a better actress, and Gain some [frick]ing weight! neither of which will ever happen im sure
BrownandYellowWolvie - 1/23/2013, 5:06 PM
horrible actress! i've seen better acting in a high school play. get rid of her!
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/23/2013, 5:07 PM
Who we need in the sequel

Professor X x2
Magneto x2
Beast x2
santoanderson - 1/23/2013, 5:07 PM
It's too bad women in Hollywood can't get acting implants, because January was [frick]ing horrible in First Class.
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2013, 5:08 PM
I thought she had a very odd body shape in the last movie
RAWRG - 1/23/2013, 5:09 PM
god hope she gets recast. bad actress PERIOD
ATrueHero1987 - 1/23/2013, 5:23 PM
If it's one thing that people who liked or didn't like X-Men:FC, most of them said that she was the weak link in that movie! I remember even Matt Fraction saying something like she was terrible.lol
marvel72 - 1/23/2013, 5:30 PM
she was shit in x-men first class.in the comics emma frost has the ability to transform into a diamond form,january jones gave a wooden performance nowhere near a diamond one.
gambgel - 1/23/2013, 5:31 PM
Emma should be on this sequel.

At least a shorter appareance to keep the continuity with First Class.

She isnt one of the best actresses of current industry, but thats not a reason to drop the character.

I think all the cast from FC should be back. even if the movie is more complex this time, but if Fox wants to create a new franchise with the new cast, all the actors should appear again. They can develop the characters a little bit, and on the next one, to focus much more on this cast alone.
TayDee - 1/23/2013, 5:37 PM
Some people are crazy. Sure her role in IM2 was unnecessary but she was excellent in The Avengers. And all the Maria Hill bashing needs to stop. She is second command to Nick Fury so her role was spot on
ATrueHero1987 - 1/23/2013, 5:40 PM
Too bad Alice Eve didn't want the role. I wonder if Alice still wants to play Invisible Woman??

SN: I liked how in X-Men: FC, when Emma went diamond, her clothes changed into diamond as well.smdh
ricko8687 - 1/23/2013, 5:44 PM
I thought Cobie Smulders was very good ion the avengers she didn't exactly have a large part but she worked , with what she had
marvel72 - 1/23/2013, 5:45 PM
i'll be honest with ya,fassbender & mcavoy were the only two good performances in the movie.

if the cast from the original trilogy & the sentinels(may appear)weren't in the sequel i probably wouldn't even be interested in the movie & that's from a massive x-men comic book fan.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/23/2013, 5:47 PM
call me crazy but imho i say she did alright. you fanboys are lusting for the oversexed, ass cheeks in white thong, titties popping out of corset, whorish looking comic book emma frost. sorry, not gonna happen in a pg cbm. jones played frost like an ice cold annoying bitch, faithful to her comicbook origin, i.e. the ice cold bitch villianess from claremonts days.

and no!!! scarlett was meh in avengers but not the weakest link, that [frick]tastic honor goes to colbie. maria should have died not coulson.
xXkryptoniteXx - 1/23/2013, 5:50 PM
She wasn't hot enough to be Emma frost.
MisterMagurlypse - 1/23/2013, 5:54 PM
No way.....in hell. I repeat, No Way.....In Hell. Should she return.

I second KamenRiderJ22's nomination of Michelle Williams. Awesome actress, beautiful, very classy.
LorenzoVonMatterhorn93 - 1/23/2013, 5:59 PM
shes hot. and awesome in mad men
Luminus - 1/23/2013, 6:00 PM
Wow, the hate for Scarlett is ridiculous. Her performance in Avengers was fantastic.
marvel72 - 1/23/2013, 6:06 PM
@ Thunderking

XD hahahahaha so true have you notice the bit where erik confronts shaw for the first time & emma knocks him into the water.

keep your eye on emma,she has her hair in a pony tail then transforms into her diamond form & her hair is straight then back into human/mutant form & her hair is back in a pony tail.
XavierLehnsherr - 1/23/2013, 6:07 PM
She must be incredible in bed to keep getting acting jobs.
TheSoulEater - 1/23/2013, 6:07 PM
I didn't like her performance as Emma
RPD - 1/23/2013, 6:12 PM
First Class was garbage anyway...
marvel72 - 1/23/2013, 6:15 PM
@ thunderking

i see it on a movie mistakes programe in the uk.
CavEl - 1/23/2013, 6:17 PM
Scralett Johanson is [frick]ING TERRIBLE!!! ARE YOU PEOPLE MENTAL?!! She's lucky she has a body that won't quit or she'd never get work in Hollywood.

Cobie (What the [frick] is a cobie, BTW) Smulders was okay, but bad? Hell no, she wasn't given enough to be bad.

At least we can all agree that the women were the weak links in the Avengers.
DrDoom - 1/23/2013, 6:21 PM

Her other projects are of no concern to me. Regardless of what she has done or will do does not change Scarlett's performances in the Marvel movies, which have been completely lackluster. Black Widow deserves much better.

ATrueHero1987 - 1/23/2013, 6:29 PM
@Thunderking lol, exactly!
kevberg - 1/23/2013, 6:31 PM
Liz Hurley as Emma....seriously...nobody plays bitch better.
marvel72 - 1/23/2013, 6:44 PM
@ kevberg

not a bad choice i would like to see any of the following play emma frost.

-amber heard
-charlize theron
-diora baird
-michelle williams
-malin akerman
DrDoom - 1/23/2013, 6:50 PM

I think you need some lessons in reading comprehension. Patriotsuperguy was NOT saying that Black Widow's role was unnecessary, nor is he a 'misogynistic prick' at least shown from his comment. He's saying that the PERFORMANCES from the women in the movie were the weak links. The legitimacy of that statement is debatable, but you clearly missed his point. Also, her other projects would be of concern if we were casting her, but we're not, are we? She's already turned in her performance, and in that regard, we're judging her performance in The Avengers based upon its own merit. It would make zero sense to judge Scarlett's performance in The Avengers based on how well she acted in Lost in Translation.

Bloody hell.
ahhmynuts - 1/23/2013, 6:54 PM
she has great tits tho
Pooh - 1/23/2013, 6:57 PM
Wasn't impressed by January Jones's performance in First Class. I was expecting a lot more. The White Queen is a powerful, influential character. She's one of the most powerful telepaths/telekinetics in Marvel Comics. I don't like the new diamond ability though.

Pooh - 1/23/2013, 7:12 PM
I liked Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2, but I thought her performance in Avengers was forgettable.
