Lisa Bonet‘s daughter, Zoe Kravitz, is heading to the big screen. Zoe just landed the role of “Angel” in the upcoming film X-Men: First Class. Now, if you’re a huge X-Men fan, then I’m sure you realize that in the last X-Men trilogy, X-Men: The Last Stand, Angel was played by Ben Foster…a white man.
According to Screenrant.com:
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.
Aww…lil mama has grown up into such a beautiful young lady, but hey her daddy is Lenny Kravitz and that man is scrumdiddlyumptious! Tee-Hee!!!
X-Men: First Class hits theaters June 30, 2011.
Tidbit: Interestingly enough, the 21 year-old Kravitz was dating Foster back in 2008.
