We reported last week that an actress was believed to be up for a new superhero role and it seems she could possibly play a different role. Production Weekly is reporting that both Amber Heard and Rosamund Pike are being considered for roles in X-Men: First Class.
Our report last week indicated that Pike could be gearing up to play Emma Frost, but this new story reveals she's actually up for the role of Moira McTaggert, Professor X's assistant. The site reports that there is "strong interest" from the studio for both Pike and Heard, who would be playing a young Mystique.
Interestingly enough, the site listed that there was also strong interest in Michael Fassbender for Magneto, as we also reported last week, but apparently Fassbender is refusing to test for the role. Our earlier report also indicated that Fassbender was also up for a villain role in the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot.
The site is also saying that Aaron Johnson is being eyed for an unspecified role in the film, which could put him in the same situation as Fassbender, since we also reported last week that Johnson could be a top contender to portray Peter Parker in the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot.
