You can take a deep breath - Matthew Vaughn isn’t ruining Emma Frost by making her wear too many clothes in X-Men: First Class.
”The costumes are insane,” Jones told the LA Times. “It’s a lot of very body-conscious stuff. If you look at the comic book, she’s barely dressed. She’s got quite the bod, which is very intimidating.”
That intimidating bod won’t be covered in make-up or prosthetics; Jones says that her character’s transformations into diamond form will be (unsurprisingly) handled with CGI. But beyond the flesh, Jones seems to have a handle on who Emma Frost was as a child, although she makes no mention of who she is when the film is happening.
“Emma was a bespectacled, mousy child who had this power when she was young that she couldn’t quite harness, the telepathy, the mind-twisting stuff,” Jones said. “She had a falling out with her father and went her own direction.”
Incredibly, X-Men: First Class still has a month of shooting left. That’s amazing because the film is coming out in June, meaning Vaughn is going to have just four months of post-production to get what is surely an FX-heavy show into fighting shape. We’re certainly rooting for him at this end.
