With X-Men: Days Of Future past gearing up for production soon, you would think that all the cast members would be set. However, director Bryan Singer keeps adding characters from the franchise. With a number of cast members from the first trilogy already in, one glaring absentee is Halle Berry. Fans have been wondering whether or not if Berry will come back as Storm, and so has Singer. "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," he explained to MTV. Singer continued on by saying that he loves working with Berry.

In the Days Of Future Past comic book the story carters heavily around Kitty Pride (Ellen Page), but Singer isn't revealing yet just who the main character or characters of the movie will be yet. "I don't want to say who the protagonists are yet, or talk about that yet, but I will say that every character has a very important function in the story," said Singer. "The story is designed and catered to the combined cast. It's not just throwing in people to occupy the screen, occupy the billboards." He also went on to say that in their version of the story, the plot is very much geared around the mass cast. Citing relationships and all their foibles and their achievements as elements of the story. For the latest on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, make sure to check back here at CBM.

She took over the Xavier school at the end of X3, so it wouldn't make any sense to leave her out if they are continuing the old universe.

Halle berry was the weak link from the first 2, everyone else was pretty much spot on.
marvel72 - 2/11/2013, 6:08 AM
she should,i'd rather see more of the originals then that crap first class line up.
GeneralZod1138 - 2/11/2013, 6:11 AM
I doubt she'll be back.

Barry and Singer hate each other.

Singer is cleary playing the mistery card.
Of course he knows if the character is back or not.

The work on the script started back on Jan of 2012, and Singer came on board on November.

Im sure Fox wants Halle back. I bet Singer announces her on March, probably as the last announcement from the original trilogy

@GeneralZod

Do they actually? I didn't know that.

rebellion - 2/11/2013, 6:20 AM
@SKOne or they can just say thet sentinels killed her. tadaa! problem solved.
ATrueHero1987 - 2/11/2013, 6:21 AM
I doubt that she's coming back.

@marvel72 I thought First Class was pretty good, I know not a faithful 'First Class', but overall not bad. I'm actually looking forward to the First lass 'lineup' merging with the Original, especially Fassbender returning (for me he stole the show)...however i was never too keen on Halle Berry, i thought her performance was a weak portrayal of 'Storm'. Personally i would re-cast.....Danai Gurira from 'Walking Dead', would be my choice.
mumbz - 2/11/2013, 6:23 AM
i say Zoe saldana should take over weathering duties, she was indeed the weakest and poorest performance across 3 movies.
ComradeGrey - 2/11/2013, 6:23 AM
Good riddance. She's a terrible actress.
Ocelot - 2/11/2013, 6:26 AM
just have her killed off by a sentinel off screen if she doesn't return
BlanketMan - 2/11/2013, 6:26 AM
Bring back Kelsey Grammar, by far the best thing about X3.
superpooper - 2/11/2013, 6:27 AM
He'll end up shelling out the duckets. He'll have to. And when he does she'll do it. Personally I'd like to see them recast Storm because they could do much better, but they won't. I'd like to see the whole cast replaced.
ShadowOfTheWeb - 2/11/2013, 6:27 AM
Agreed @mumbz & @Levitikuz
what this movie needs is more Matthew Vaughn. Godspeed Singer, make it a good one!
ShadowOfTheWeb - 2/11/2013, 6:28 AM
Kelsey Grammar beast would be baws
pepe - 2/11/2013, 6:34 AM
Dont care... Will care when it says Singer wont come back for X-men.... ever!!!!
Roscoe182 - 2/11/2013, 6:34 AM
good she was awful.

she was by far the worst thing about the x-men films.
animeex - 2/11/2013, 6:34 AM
I heard when Singer was possibly going to do the 3rd movie she wanted a bigger role and more money and they said NO! I am sure Ratner gave her what she wanted because he knew his movie would bomb and figured she is a big actress and let her have it all.
GeneralZod1138 - 2/11/2013, 6:35 AM
@AcidicHeart

They had a bunch of problems during the first two X films, mostly X2.

There was a ton of articles back then about it.

That's why she stuck around for Last Stand. She got the bigger part/more screen time she wanted, (and look how that turned out).
titansupes - 2/11/2013, 6:49 AM
@AcidicHeart During a particularly bad day or two in the shooting of X@, when Singer was allegedly going off on the cast/crew (and the cast considered a revolt (again, allegedly) Berry famously told Singer to "Kiss my black ass".
Kyos - 2/11/2013, 7:04 AM
I really wouldn't mind her staying the hell away from this movie.
NERO - 2/11/2013, 7:06 AM
No Big loss. Recast and hire someone that won't complain about their amount of screen time. Its an ensemble cast Halle, get over it.
NERO - 2/11/2013, 7:10 AM
I have to agree with a lot of the anti-Singer comments I've never been a fan of what he's done with the franchise.
Buddha29 - 2/11/2013, 7:19 AM
I think Naomi Campbell or Iman would make a great Storm.
JatevinM - 2/11/2013, 7:19 AM
I still wish that Angela Bassett would have agreed to be Storm. The woman is perfect for the role.
JatevinM - 2/11/2013, 7:19 AM
Buddha29@ Neither one of them can act and both of them are WAY too skinny to play Storm.
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/11/2013, 7:28 AM
They didn't like each other in the first 2 xmen because after she won an Oscar for her performance, she wanted more screen time. Hence why she had more to say in x3 and it was pretty bad. I'm fine if she doesn't comeback. All I want is a justified Cyclops to comeback.
ComicBookGoth - 2/11/2013, 7:28 AM
keep her away.

i hated her falling in and out of that horrid accent in x1.

there are so many better actresses to portray storm.

Zoe Saldana, Marsha Thomason, Freema Agyeman.



shadearts - 2/11/2013, 7:29 AM
Actually the worst thing about the Xmen movies was Singers obsession of hugh jackman wolverine crotch LMAO
onwardpilgrim - 2/11/2013, 7:35 AM
@ topcat. Danai Gurira is a crap actress... all she can do is grunt and look pissed off... doesnt in any way capture the distant nature of michonne and looks nothing like storm.
jimoakley666 - 2/11/2013, 7:38 AM
She was the weak point of Singers films anyway. The amount of times they recast Pyro and Kitty Pride, I could live with Storm being recast.
Greengo - 2/11/2013, 7:39 AM
What a cluster [frick] this is.

I hope it's good but... it has (almost) all the ingredients for the other shitty X-Men movies.. ugghhh makes me kinda nauseous.
jimoakley666 - 2/11/2013, 7:40 AM
@xXkryptoniteXx - Yeah, I'm more concerned with seeing Cyclops back and with a much larger role. James Marsden is a cracking actor too, so he needs all the screen time he can get. If getting rid of Storm is the way to do it, so be it.
OtakuPapi - 2/11/2013, 7:40 AM
Please recast her she isn't necessary
SuperSomething616 - 2/11/2013, 7:44 AM
Don't want her to come back...she pecked my head!!!

Get someone better!!!
