Lady Gaga is reportedly in the running to play an X-Men character in a forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

According to a new report, the popstar and A Star is Born actor is wanted to portray Emma Frost, also known as the White Queen.

Rumour site We Got This Covered, which has reported correctly on Marvel casting announcements before, claims that Marvel Studios are eager to work with Gaga when the X-Men join the MCU.

The X-Men franchise is currently separated from the core canon of MCU films, although Marvel has revealed that it intends to one day welcome the famous mutants into the fold.

In the original comics, the telepathically powered Ice Queen initially appears as an enemy of the X-Men, before undergoing a redemption arc and eventually becoming a leader of the group.

The character was previously played by January Jones (Mad Men) in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class.

As well as her successful music career, Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, has garnered plenty of acclaim for her work in film and TV.

In 2016 she won a Golden Globe award for her part in American Horror Story: Hotel, and her 2018 Star is Born performance earned the singer an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
