So what will Halle Berry do in X-Men: Days of Future Past if she can't fight or fly?

04.12.2013

Halle Berry/Storm

Earlier this month it was announced that Halle Berry is three months pregnant and the father of the child is French actor Olivier Martinez. That's great news for the couple but doesn't Halle Berry know she needs to film X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST? Does she have to be so selfish?

I'm just kidding but her pregnancy will effect the film at least slightly. In an interview with the BBC her newly announced pregnancy was brought up and Halle Berry wanted to be clear that it won't prevent her from appearing in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST:

One thing is for sure, with another baby on the way mama cannot take time off.

Her pregnancy won't change the script for the film apparently but it will effect how Halle Berry's character will be shown in the film and I don't just mean the variety of ways they'll try to hide her baby bump.

Storm probably won't be as badass as she was going to be because we won't be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that. She'll be different than we originally planned her to be but I still think she'll be an integral part of this new X-Men movie.

I don't think Halle Berry will appear less in the film due to her pregnancy but none of us know how big of a role she's going to have in the first place. If Berry has an "integral part" it might just be an extended cameo that is important to the plot for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Since it seems like her scenes have been tweaked slightly it probably just means that if there is an action scene featuring Storm then she'll be hanging out in the back tossing lightning bolts instead of partaking in any hand to hand combat.

Production on X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST just started this month and the film is set to be released on July 18th, 2014.

Oh Storm.

I like Halle Berry a lot, she's just not right for this. NOt bad ass enough for this. I know it's crazy and the age range is wrong, but I'd love to see a Grace Jones, Iman, or hell, even RuPaul. The character is extreme and dramatic.

Ah the rich have it so hard.

ROFL yah like your millions of dollars and army of nannies make it tough for you to get through your day without having enough time to plow into someone with your car. Ah the rich and their disconnect from normal society.
You know someone is rich beyond measure when they continue to adopt kids, no sane person these days would have seven kids on what the average person makes.

There are so many gorgeous actresses (American and non-American) I think could give Storm gravitas. Yeah, Halle Berry was hot in the first film (wearing her white t-shirt and tight leather pants) but she couldn't 'bring it.' (She is kinda like a female Will Smith: We know them by name, but they have limited range in acting).

I think they should recast.

So I guess this means for the movie, Storm will always be seen either sitting in a chair behind a big desk, or perhaps holding a large box or a manila folder in front of her belly. Great, sounds like this one will be action packed!

Could we get the first ever CGI on screen tummy tuck! They use it for everything else, why not just paste her head onto a stunt doubles body, she could do it over the internet on skype.

Fanbois could still drool over her, but her age, pregnancy and acting skills all bring reality into the picture in ways adolescent boys of ALL ages will not be able to cope with.

Jesse, I loved your line about her being selfish. But now she needs to be merciful AND QUIT! She can always go back to being a model where her mouth can stay shut!!!

They should recast Storm with a black woman who's actually from Africa. Halle's features are too soft and westernized.

Hopefully it means Storm will die in the first three minutes. Off screen. That would be excellent karma.

meh.

I don't even think this will be an issue...bc Berry was never an issue in any of these films to begin with. She was def translated as the flattest character when brought to the screen.

Look...I love X-Men...but save for Wolverine all the characters ever do is find different ways to raise their hands and CGI does the rest.

I knew this kind of shit would happen as soon as Singer was announced to direct. Instead of a legitimate sequel to First Class, which was a fantastic new take on the franchise, Bryan Singer gets to make X3, which he passed on in favor of Superman Returns almost a decade ago.

To be fair to Singer, he wanted to do both... FOX fired him because they didn't and threatened ANYONE from the X cast who might do both films, therefore killing Cyclops in X3 as punishment for the actor who did...

And that's a bad thing??? As ok as First Class was, it wan nowhere near as good as the first two X-Men movies. And I think a Days Of Future Past movie is a more interesting idea than an actual direct follow up to First Class.

Yeah, it's not like she would have to actually ACT... Now THAT would be a challenge for her (she was quite good in CLOUD ATLAS though, I admit!)...

Yeah, so that means more screen time for everyone else!

Berry is one of the weakest parts about the X-Men films, which is a shame because Storm should of had a better actress portraying her. She's one of the more badass, stronger characters in the X-Men.

Give her two lines and get her off screen.

She is the worst part of the first trilogy.

Hehehe...
One of the two lines from the Whedon script (with the 'you're a dick' one)...
Just saying.

I maintain that the lightning-frog line could have been funny delivered by a better actress. Or an actual actress. She hit the "same thing blah blah" in a badass tone of voice, when it actually would have been a funny line if she'd tossed off the last part more casually.

Id prefer

A full blown recast or no storm at all. I guess a diminished role is better than nothing.

Fiction should never have to bend to reality. Hate to sound cold, but replace her.
