Halle Berry will likely return to the role of Storm in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Mar. 1, 2013by:

A couple of weeks ago, Bryan Singer speculated on the return of Halle Berry to the role of Storm for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST:

I can't say. I don't know yet. And it's not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it'll make sense. But I love working with her.

Shadow and Act recently spoke with Berry, and this is what they got from the actress:

"She did confirm to me that she would be returning in the role. Most likely. Practically 90% sure. And she nodded a lot too. I can't say, and neither could she say that it's definitely a done deal, and that the contracts have all been signed, with all the "i"s dotted and the "t"s crossed."

The site added that, "a few details that are still being negotiated which she couldn't get into. But since she did tell me that the film starts shooting in April, it's highly unlikely that talks are going to suddenly and horribly fall apart at this point, and the producers have to scramble to find a replacement at the very last minute."

Do you care if Berry returns to the role? Or should they be looking elsewhere?

Also, the story for those unfamiliar, "alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future."

A big "MEH" to all this news

She can't be playing that big of a role in this movie if they're only starting to finalize the deal now and filming starts in April. I feel the future cast will be given no more than 25 minutes screen time throughout the whole movie, giving the original cast nothing more than cameo appearances but enough screen time that we get a sense of their character.
I am far more interested in seeing what happens with Cyclops. Are they bringing back Marsden? Or are they going to recast with someone

Ugh.

My interest in this project just went down several thousand notches. Peter Dinklage would do a better job playing Storm than Halle Berry.

No Berry! No Singer!

No No No!!!!!! Singer needs to stick to giants and stop messing up my Marvel comic book movies, or go ruin DC some more with another terrible sequel to Superman. Also he needs to actually read about the characters he is making a film about (and I know writers have a big part in this) but "reverend" Stryker (not General) should have been a completely different person in the 2nd movie. I'm not saying he is a terrible director but his x-men movies have been bland and definitely needed a breath of

I'm not saying he is a terrible director but his x-men movies have been bland and definitely needed a breath of fresh air...enter x-men first class. This movie was a welcome change and not tainted by Singer, but low and behold he returns to make a great growing trilogy into a steamy over the top turd by putting every character in the Marvel x-men universe in one movie and destroying any chance of a story. Plus time travel already...ugh. Anyway here's to zero expectation.

Stop The INSANITY!!

How in the heck does she still get put in movies. This is terrible!! My opinion they need to recast and try to breathe life into what should be a strong X-Men Charecter.

Anyway

I'm okay with this. I'm sure she realizes it is her last time playing Storm so her ability to negotiate is zero.

Irony

The whole point of X-Men: First Class was to recast roles so they didn't have to pay a lot of money to bring all these people back for X-Men 4.

Of course she'd return since Berry's been in mostly shi**y movies lately. So why not return to her best role?

Storm could be unstoppable, but isnt.

I agree Berry's Storm was always a little boring, the character has some devastating powers that always seem under-used. With as devastating as weather has been in recent years, you would think that would be sufficient evidence that Storm can create any of that chaos. She was one of the superpowers attached to the Living Monolith... Storm is bad@$$. Hopefully Singer/Berry step it up a notch

Meh...

Yeah...she's easy on the eyes and all. However, her latest PR is bad and I could care less about her returning to the role.

Ain't she moved to France yet?!

Ugh, do we have to? Worst part of all three movies. Pick an accent, please

Does anybody like Storm? Really? Her powers are even dumb - why would an X-gene allow someone to control the weather? If she was magical, fine, okay. I can believe mutants with psychic powers and even eye-lasers, because at least they're all from the person, and are about as scientific as any comic book character. Exactly how do genetics allow you to change atmospheric pressure hundreds of miles away from you?

Magneto, Storm, Ice Man, Pyro and Jean Grey all basically have the same power: they are all telekinetic; Magneto specializes with metal, Ice Man with water, Pyro with fire, Storm with both water and air and Jean with physical objects although as Phoenix she was also able to manipulate things on a molecular level and do everything that the other telekinetics could do.

Glad to hear she is coming back since I love the fact that Synger is doing his best to connect all of the films together and having the continuity continue with all of the characters returning from previous films with all of the same actors coming back to play all of these same characters.

Now all I want is confirmation on Marsden and Jansen to return for this film so we can have Cyclops and Jean back.

We should only see the older Storm in the future setting. And she should be played by Angela Basset....

Fun drinking game

Watch X3 and take a drink everytime Storm has a pointless line of dialogue or is summarizing what just happened a few moments ago.

As for the casting, i wish she would get replaced, with all the names and mutants attached to this thing, having her will just force more screentime, a dumb story arch, and pointless dialogue from her character.

Yay.

Whilst I'm no big Berry fan (or hater, though obviously casting Storm could've gone better originally), I'd rather the continuity stuck instead of a re-cast, seeing as they've gone THIS far to try and match these X-Men universes up

I believe that's the blurb from the original comic book story.

You're assuming that continuity is a concern with these movies. I can understand why, as logic would seem to dictate that would be important. But let us remember that Fox just wants money. They obviously don't care too much about the scripts.

Good to hear but

They really need to figure out how to bring back jean and Scott, killing them off was a HUGE mistake, and cyclops never got his dues in the movies

I wish they would replace her. She wasn't particularly good in the films and thought she was too good for them after her Oscar win. It would be cool to see a different actress play Storm. It's not like you wouldn't recognize the character.
