That's okay, January. We weren't hoping you'd return.
I was. I want the least amount of change as possible. We need more consistency even if that means bringing back a few sub par actresses/actors. I fu#king can't stand loose ends. And if Singer/Kinberg just drop her character from the FC world, then that will leave us with a loose end. The characters absence, and however they try to explain it, will just come off as cheap and sloppy.

I agree 100%
It would be like Lando not returning for ROTJ or something. I mean the movie ended with her joining Magneto...there's no other way around that. I hope crying fans who didn't like January didn't convince the producers to drop her. I HATE recasting..I had just posted this elsewhere....

For all we know, the majority of FC cast isn't returning if we're just going by the reason that none of them have been contacted yet.. chances are they have and are just denying it because they're under contract not to say anything.

At least JJ knows the title of the next X-Men movie and what is going on with trilogy cast members returning, maybe she knows more than she is letting on. I can't see them cutting out Emma Frost since she is the only one that can take on Xavier. If Emma returns I'm sure JJ will reprise.

Notice how she doesn't say anything about wanting to be in it, she just "doesn't know". I think it's a clue that she's already in and denying knowing anything about DoFP.

She does seem to know details about the film, more than Patrick Stewart did, so ... maybe she's playing.

If they did have Emma in it, it wouldn't have to be January. Avengers still had consistency, despite having a different Banner. That was because the character was the same, and it would be the same for Frost.

She's just not a very good actress. I thought that flat delivery of hers on Mad Men was just part of her character, but then I saw how she acted basically the same way in everything else she does. She had the same problems in XFC that she does in nearly every role she plays.

True, but for me personally I don't want change nor do I feel like Jone's was that bad to warrant a change. I want to see the same person. If Frost is going to continue to be in these films then IMO we should, for continuity sake, be stuck with Jones for better or worse.

Absolutely. Because then when watching First Class and DOFP back to back, it would be...pretty lame to have two different white blonde women pretending to be the same character. I hate it. Ugh.

How is it pretty lame? It's not even hard. Did you have a problem with Banner in The Avengers? Did that ruin the movie for you?

If not, then having someone replace January shouldn't be hard to accept.

I'd be down for an actress who actually looks like Emma besides being white and blonde, and can actually act the part.

Things like this should be taken seriously enough to know when a recast is needed, and not dragged down by continuity. I'd understand if they were rebooting the character completely, but if it's the same character with someone else playing her better then I don't get the problem.

I thought January was "meh". I don't think she was awful. I prefer her to Foster's portrayal of Angel.

Exactly. This film WAS my most anticipated movie. Now with every new piece of news I find myself caring less and less.

No thanks, I hate recasting. Get her back and put her in the film.

Jones' acting in First Class was some of the worst I've ever seen.

I remember rumors that she was sleeping with Vaughn. Was it confirmed he's her baby's daddy?

Maybe the sleep with the director thing didn't work on Singer because, you know.

Was she that bad? Seriously? IMO change is annoying. I like things to stay consistent from start to finish. When I think about these X-Men movies I don't want to have to think about multiple versions of the same character from the same time period within the story. Its an unnecessary mess IMO.

and a recast would mean the THIRD actress to play Emma to date.

That would be a horrible decision.

If one movie shows a poor version of a certain character, IMPROVE the role in the next one. It can be done with the right writer and director.

Bryan and Kimberg, with Millar support, can make a better job with January, even if she isnt a Oscar winner type of actress.

Many actors from most franchises arent Oscar worthy, yet the studios made sure the characters were done justice. So... Im sure Fox, Singer and January can do it too.

The same with many other characters of the franchise to date, like Cyclops, Rogue, Angel, Colossus, etc, etc.

Continuity is a magic. It shouldnt be broken..

By that logic, then casting Ellen Page as Shadowcat in X3 was a horrible decision. And Aaron Stanford as Pyro. And Kelsey Grammar as Beast. Continuity isn't "magic" nor is it necessary when it comes to casting, and this franchise proves it.

Exactly. Jones isn't wining any awards. We all know that. But at least give Singer the opportunity to work with her. And how about giving the character something to do this time around. With First Class, the Frost character wasn't onscreen/involved enough for JJ to truly be a disappointment IMO.
