RUMOR: James Marsden And Halle Berry Wanted For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Well, it was inevitable after everything we know so far that we will see a report about this. It seems that 20th Century Fox is hoping to bring back James Marsden (Cyclops) and Halle Berry (Storm) for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past...
With filming starting in April 2013, we will see a lot more reports about possible cast members for the Bryan Singer-directed sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director already confirmed that James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult will return for the upcoming follow-up, and that both Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will reprise their roles from the original trilogy (even though Stewart apparently knows nothing about that). It has also been revealed that Hugh Jackman is in talks to play Wolverine once again, so this report from MovieWeb is pretty much expected. But, according to them, studios wants James Marsden and Halle Berry back as 'Cyclops' and 'Storm'. Of course, nothing is confirmed, so take this with a grain of salt for now.
As far as making new deals with the cast from the original trilogy, here is another bit of info thanks to THR:
"By contrast, new deals must be struck with the original trilogy stars, though insiders say negotiations haven't been overly complex. For one, Jackman and the others will appear mostly in scenes depicting an alternate dystopic future. Second, there is a great deal of goodwill on the part of the actors to return, thanks mostly to the involvement of Bryan Singer."
X-Men: Days of Future Past is based on a classic comic book storyline, which deals "with a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps." The arc also features the Sentinels, who rule the United States.
