*Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz’s daughter, Zoe Kravitz is following in the footsteps of her parents and is entering into the world of entertainment. She will be playing the role of “Angel” in the upcoming Marvel comic film “X-Men: First Class.”
Comic book fans and filmgoers who know the character and saw the last of the original X-Men trilogy, ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ are aware that Angel is a white male and was played by Ben Foster in the third film.
Screenrant.com reports, “Angel is a character we thought for sure had no chance of being in the film (‘First Class’) since he was introduced in’ X-Men 3′ as someone with no prior knowledge or ties with the X-Men. If you’re keeping track, the ‘X-Men: First Class’ movie currently only sits with two of the five actual original characters from Marvel Comics canon and one arguably shouldn’t be there. That being said, this clearly isn’t the same Angel we know but instead, the character known as Angel Salvadore.”
She along with co-star Edi Gathegi will be the only African Americans in the film.
