Several images of from the X-franchise prequel set have appeared online showcasing the Mad Men starlet between takes on the UK film set.
Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, which predates the previously released X-Men films, tells the story of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Micheal Fassbender) before their respective hero and villain days. Currently filming in the UK, Gossip Cop has revealed the first images of one of the film's main cast members, January Jones, in full costume as Emma Frost; the future White Queen:
Though maintaining the character's white motif, Jones' outfit is much less revealing than her comic counterpart. It is safe to assume Frost will don a variety of costumes in the film; but based off of these images alone it appears the production team is attempting to keep the visceral aspects of the film very much grounded in both the comic book source material and the 1960s setting of the project.
X-Men: First Class is scheduled for theatrical release on June 3rd in the superhero-heavy summer of 2011.
