Default Re: Actors from original trilogy on First Class sequel with Days of Future Past

Luckily beast was a very minor thing... But xo Emma was forced for the sake of forcing.... And you can't do that
In fairness though, the mutants rescued by Xavier at the end of XMO:Wolverine were intended (at that point) to be the characters in Josh Schwartz's screenplay for the original concept of X-Men: First Class. So Emma was introduced in readiness for her to be a student at the school in the First Class film. It wasn't random or forced at the time, despite making her Kayla's sister (in order to give Kayla a motivation for her betrayal of Wolverine)

But when Singer came on board First Class, he threw that script out and conceived what became the film that was released.

So the problem wasn't really with First Class Emma Frost, but with the fact that ideas changed because there has been no overall 'grand plan' for these films.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
