Earlier this week both Captain America and X-Men villain turned ally Emma “The White Queen” Frost have been spotted! Click the above image for a larger view of the two.
Lets begin with Captain America. This is not a shot of Chris Evans in the costume, but rather a stunt man doing a motorcycle chase through Europe. Regardless of who is in the costume, this IS THE COSTUME. And I gotta say, I like it. Hopefully when Captain joins up in present day with the rest of the Avengers the helmet will turn into a normal mask. You can check out a bunch more pictures of the costume in action here.
Also spotted is January Jones (of the awesome AMC series Mad Men) as Emma Frost. The costume may be covered by a white coat, but it looks pretty spot on. INF Daily got the scoop and has a dozen pictures, which include January and her stunt double. Apparently they were filming some sorta sequence with Emma coming to blows with a few army types and taking off in a helicopter. I can’t wait to see her with Kevin Bacon’s Sebastian Shaw and the other members of the Hellfire Club. I still don’t know how they are going to tie this into the other movies and it is a shame that we’ll never see Wolverine being the last man standing against the club (pictured below).
X-Men: First Class will hit theaters on June 3, 2011, while Captain America: The First Avenger will be coming out a month later on July 22, 2011. I’ll be seeing both opening night.
