Margot Robbie’s name has been doing the rounds because of her upcoming role in Greta Gervig’s Barbie. She will be playing the role of Barbie, cast alongside Ryan Gosling, who is starring as Ken. Various shots from the film’s shooting are going viral and the movie is already a social media hit. It doesn’t get better than this. Or maybe it does. According to Giant Freakin Robots, Margot Robbie is close to bagging a role in the Marvel franchise, and the role is said to be “one of the biggest” roles in the franchise.
Margot Robbie might play the role of Emma Frost
Though the rumor has not been confirmed yet, social media is rife with speculations that the role is supposed to be of X-Men character, Emma Frost. Emma is one of the most famous characters in the X-Men world, and she has played the role of one of the primary adversaries of Charles Xavier. Her abilities include telepathy and transforming her body into an almost indestructible diamond, a combination which she has used to great effect against the X-Men. In the comics, she eventually begins to support the X-Men and even manages to become co-headmistress of Xavier’s School for Gifted Children.
So, needless to say that the inclusion of the character would be a good step for the X-Men franchise, which is reportedly in the works at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
