Halle Berry would do a Storm-centric X-Men film "in a heartbeat"

07.09.2015

With all the great and wonderful characters which inhabit the X-Men universe, you'd think Fox would be cranking out more X-Men films focused on individual characters. Aside from the pre-existing Wolverine-centric films, the rest of the X-Men Cinematic Universe has primarily dealt with the whole team. Is there a chance for more films based on individual X-Men characters? Storm actress Halle Berry hopes that there is because she would do a Storm-centric X-Men film "in a heartbeat."

Halle Berry, who is at San Diego Comic-Con to promote the second season of Extant, was asked by Deadline if she would be interested in doing a Storm movie:

In a heartbeat. In a heartbeat I would do a Storm movie. I love that character through and through. So if that ever became an opportunity for me if it’s before I’m 65-years old I would absolutely do that.

Berry has appeared as Storm in X-MEN, X2, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST with Alexandra Shipp appearing as a younger version of the character in the upcoming X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, so Fox obviously wants to keep Storm around. Halle Berry urged the fans to speak up if a Storm film is something they'd like to see.

Well, I think they should do it. If the fans want that the fans need to speak up and I’m sure it would be a possibility. If Fox felt like they could make money off of a Storm movie I’m sure they would do it.

While I do like the character of Storm, I haven't always been convinced by Halle Berry's portrayal of her. The franchise seems as though it has been afraid to give us the bad-ass mohawked Storm many of us want, although Alexandra Shipp did shave her head last month, teasing that a mohawked Storm may finally be in our future. With both DEADPOOL and GAMBIT in the works, the likelihood of more X-Men characters getting their own standalone films seems possible.

Are you interested in a Storm-centric film and would you want Halle Berry to return to the role?

Storm is supposed to be one of the strongest X-Men characters in the comics right? Halle Berry though has never really brought nothing to the character at all in these movies, in fact she makes her seem downright boring. I'm not sure who is to blame more, the writers or Berry.

Storms

RuPaul, Grace Jones, Iman.
Granted, older Storms, but these ladies are crazy and dramatic enough for Storms eccentricities.

nobody cares

Would she do a Kenyan accent? Or an American one? Or just whatever she feels like that day on set?

Halle Berry did an absolutely shitty job of portraying the character. I'm not sure if it's entirely on her or if it's a combination of her and the scripts/direction she was given. But at this point in the X-Men movies, her portrayal is too far gone for her version of Storm to be any good. I say write her off and start fresh with Alexandra Shipp.

Recast Storm, go for the mohican hair look and have her running an X-Men team - that'd be cool. Berry as Storm was always one of the worst elements of Singer's movies.

Ya, but no thank you. Storm has always been a fine character in the comics, but even in them she wasn't a stand alone character. She has some neat back stories, but NOTHING that screams, solo movie. Halle Berry should be fortunate enough to have played the character this many times considering it should have went to another actress.

No one wants this.

First off, Storm is an interesting character in an ensemble story. Not by herself. Secondly, Halle Berry is not, nor has ever been and will ever be STORM. She was miscast from the beginning and has played the character so inconsistently and differently in each film it boggles the mind. She's one of the worst actresses "working" today.

Don't worry Halle the fans won't be speaking up - especially if you're in it. I mean it's clear from this you ain't exactly getting great movies by the bucket loads nowadays are you? And you've already proven you're a terrible leading lady in Catwoman as well being a mindfuck of useful information - 'do you know what happens when a toad gets struck by lightening?' No storm do tell - 'the same thing that happens to everything else' - oh right, so nothing special then

I agree with almost everything you are saying, however, you must be aware that the line about Toad and lightning is taken out of context as in the original script there were several lines throughout the film that built up to that line that if they hadn't been cut would have made the line make a lot more sense.

Agree with the rest though 100%

Meh

Would be the 1st X-men movie I would not be seeing in theaters. It's time for her to move on from the part, please.

It would make sense.

Of the core group, STORM is the only one who hasn't had her own subplot in any of her 4 appearances.

If there is any X-Men character that I would want to see get his or her own film it's Cyclops.

And Berry was sorely miscast as Storm. Singer should have cast Angela Basset instead.

How about a movie with Storm, Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean, Ice Man, Rogue, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye? Have the villains be Arcade and Grandmaster and introduce the idea of a multiverse. In fact, they could call it X-Men / Avengers: Contest of Champions. They would recast any actors who ask for too much money to do it. That's all I've got.

I like your idea but I'd love the villain to be Mojo and all of your cast have to fight to the death to beat Mojovision.

So, basically, Storm versus Thor, Wolverine versus Hulk, Cyclops versus Captain America, Jean versus Iron Man, Rogue versus Black Widow and Ice Man versus Hawkeye. Have Grandmaster and Arcade be two of the Elders of the Universe and have them be told that the fate of both of their worlds depends on them doing what the Elders say. Basically, they would need Beyonder level powers. I suppose they could call it X-Men / Avengers: Secret Wars then. They could also add Colossus, Kitty,

Mojo actually works better because the key would be for the X-Men and the Avengers to fight and team up for ratings. And Mojoworld is already an extradimensional place so the idea that Mojo could bring the X-Men and Avengers together is plausible. It is also plausible that people in the Mojoverse would have been watching the X-Men and the Avengers, that Mojo has been spying on these groups and showing their adventures as reality programs. The demand in the Mojoverse to have the X-Men and

Yeah, exactly, and Mojo knows that just X-Men fighting X-Men won't boost his ratings as much as wants so he teleports The Avengers to fight against X-Men in Mojovision and start the game. It could be a survival course something like The Running Man movie or something. This could actually be the plot of new X-Men movie, hehe. One can dream.

Sure.

While we're at it, let's include Anna Paquin's Rogue in it as well. Ya' know, to see if we could reach supernova levels of disinterest from fans around the world.
