Halle Berry officially back as Storm in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past

Mar. 4, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Halle Berry's involvement in Bryan Singer's X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST has been an unsure thing up until now, as Singer has taken to Twitter to announce her official involvement.  Berry will return to the role of Storm, the famed weather-controlling mutant whom the actress portrayed in the first three X-MEN films. 

Berry joins the already "assembled" cast of returning and new castmembers, including Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Hugh Jackman, Shawn Ashmore, , Ellen Page, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and newcomers Peter Dinklage and Omar Sy, with still-rumored James Marsden, Lucas Till, Caleb Landry Jones to be confirmed.  That's quite a cast any way you shake it and with that many favorites all in one movie you're sure to have a contender on your hands.

Singer is currently enjoying the #1 spot for his recently released JACK THE GIANT SLAYER, although it's not likely to meet industry expectations.  Thankfully, he has X-MEN to fall back on, which is a safer bet to be sure. 

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is currently in pre-production with an eye towards release on July 18, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Now, if they could just get Ray Park back as Toad we could get that rematch with Storm we've all been dying to see, am I right?

With all the x-men coming into this film, you would think they'd try to bring fan-favorite Nightcrawler back.
Also, I liked Mystique and Beast better in the x-men films than first class, so I'm kinda sad Rebecca Romaijn and Kelsey Grammer (best part of X-3) probably won't be back.

Actually, tub farts are awesome. I'd rather fart in a tub all by myself for 2 hours than watch a Halle Berry movie.

Halle....

I can't take this woman seriously no matter how I try. Ever since her Oscar, she's demolished her career with sub-par movies, not to include the recent, derided Movie 43. It's like she doesn't even take HERSELF seriously anymore. Having nice tits doesn't make you an actress, lady. Honestly, I was thrilled to see myself excited for X-Men again with First Class. I'd prefer for her not to have any involvement in the next one, but oh well. Hopefully she's more of a fixture than an actual

She does have nice tits, though. Perhaps they can change her Storm costume to reflect her more feminine assets. Because there's no saving her acting.

maybe

There's a possibility Halle realizes her character is nowhere near the focus of the film and she'll do the best with what she's given. This news doesn't mean that the film is turning for the worse. I got faith in SInger and with all the good news this film has been getting with the casting (Peter DInkledge especially) having Halle Berry in it won't affect my judgement nor should it affect any fan of the X-men franchise. Trainman said it best with his reply, "Meh".

This is going to suck so bad....

I'm calling it... The Wolverine will be surprisingly good, and Future's past will be "ok." The franchise will start with Singer and end with him. What the fuck happened to Deadpool?!

So, Cyclops is *officially* back in "DoFP"?

Don't remember ever hearing of that confirmation...same w/ Lucas Till (Havoc) & Caleb Landry Jones (Banshee). But it's awesome if true.

C'mon Famke...You know you wanna do it also.

Ok, I love Halle, shes beautiful and perfect, just not perfect for STORM. Storm needs to be over-the-top, tall, larger than life. I mean, damn, let RuPaul be Storm, no really, work with me here. Think about it. Hell, Iman, Grace Jones ( I know age-group), but really.

I agree. Get a big, scary woman with great presence. I always think of Storm and Sindel from Mortal Kombat as sisters in that way. They look alike too :)

If Singer can pull this off - linking the original films and First Class - without screwing up the good work done in First Class, and without severe continuity problems, he's some sort of genius. It's a cinematic faceplant waiting to happen and I wish him luck.

Who gives a shit

She was gifted her Oscar to placate the black audience. Denzel, Halle, and Sidney Poitier winning lifetime achievement in the same year. Kind of sullies their win. Just politics. Getting stuffed by bill Thornton does not merit Oscar praise. She couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.

However Singer will use the old cast is still up in the air. But if he's just going for continuity, then he's done a good job thus far.

By the growth of the cast, this movie should be like four or five hours long.

But seriously, Marsden and Famke need to be confirmed already for this film. Two essential characters that need to come back.

Except for the part where both characters are dead. Then again, same could be said for Xavier. I mean, he's not DEAD dead, but his body's gone.

Marsden, Famke Jansen & a dead Patrick Stewart would all do a better job of being Storm than Halle Berry.

That confirms that I will not be wasting money to watch this. Unfortunately it will make tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars, Fox will continue to milk the dead cow, and Marvel will never get the rights to X-Men back.

How come? For continuity's sake Halle Berry was essential. However, I think linking two franchises together like this is pretty unique and inspired. Do you protest to the series because you want Marvel to get back the rights, and think what Fox did with X1, X2, and First Class was subpar? Granted, Wolverine and X3 were abominations, but I think Fox has done a 180 on their attitude after seeing what WB has done with the Batman series and Disney/Marvel with its superhero collective.

Are you REPORTING that James Marsden, Lucas Till, and Caleb Landry Jones are in this film or just speculating (or making shit up)?? This is the first place that I've read this.

i really haven't enjoyed her Storm, but i think if they went with her mohawk look, the character wouldn't be as annoying.

Maybe we can just fuck the story and spend 100 minutes do a casting call for the numbers of people in this movie. This movie is getting ridiculous with the amount of people in it.

She's a terrible actress. How she won an Oscar I'll never know. Oh wait, that's right, she got her tits out, didn't she? Didn't work so well in Swordfish though, did it?

Ways to make it work: 1) Relegate her to a very minor background character, like Jar Jar Binks in Episode III. 2) Maybe Storm can get killed by the bad guys in the first 5 minutes or something? I could get behind that. 3) Gratuitous footage of Storm's boobs. It would have to be a lot though.

Can't help but think what a bad move this is!

This movie is quickly moving towards being incredibly sucky! Shame that, being the X-Men and all. Doesn't seem that they learned their lesson with X-3.
