Bryan Singer Wants Halle Berry Back For X-MEN: DOFP, But Will It "Work Out"?

Bryan Singer Wants Halle Berry Back For X-MEN: DOFP, But Will It "Work Out"?

While chatting with UK E Online at the premiere of Jack The Giant Slayer, Singer once again expressed his excitement at reuniting with his old pals from his previous X-movies. But one name has been conspicuous by her absence - the lovely Miss Berry..

As we already know, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will bring together characters from both X-Men movie continuities for one big mutant-mash. Most of the main stars from Singer's first two X-flicks have signed on to return, with 3 notable exceptions: Famke Janssen (Jean Grey), James Marsden (Cyclops), and Halle Berry (Storm). Janssen has been rumored for a while, there's been no word on Marsden, and although Halle Berry has been mentioned in an unofficial capacity, now we know at least that Singer wants her on board. "I'm excited about all the actors," Singer told UK E Online at the premiere of his fantasy adventure flick Jack The Giant Slayer. "It's an incredible cast. It's a great story and it involves a lot of stuff that hasn't been in X-Men films before. New kids of technology, science fiction aspects." Then asked outright if Berry would don the white wig again he replied: "It depends on how it works out. I loved working with Halle, so all I can say is we'll see what happens." It can't be too long before an announcement is made one way or the other, but do you guys even want Berry back as Storm? She was famously...well, pretty awful in the first and third movies, although personally I thought she did a decent job in X-Men 2. Anyway, sound off below with your thoughts.

BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 2/27/2013, 2:32 PM
Bring back James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Kelsey Grammar, and Brian Cox and I'm good.
KeefNCookies - 2/27/2013, 2:33 PM
Even if I cared about this movie, I'd still say no. She was a terrible Storm.
marvel72 - 2/27/2013, 2:35 PM
i'd rather have storm return then rogue.
marvel72 - 2/27/2013, 2:39 PM
@ marvelpsycho79

i'd like to see alan cummings return but i'd also like to see a motion capture suit nightcrawler.
KaneVonDoom - 2/27/2013, 2:43 PM
Dump Halle.
Luminus - 2/27/2013, 2:47 PM
Can someone please tell this guy to hire Angela Bassett already?
JR - 2/27/2013, 3:02 PM
$$$ i don't think so
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/27/2013, 3:03 PM
I just want to see her get swatted out of the air then stomped into the ground by a Sentinel.
Luminus - 2/27/2013, 3:03 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO79: Halle Berry didn't have an African accent, so how does that matter?

I’ve heard the excuse that Angela Bassett is too old since the 1st X-Men movie, then you see her play Amanda Waller in Green Lantern. Storm is a mature woman, not some dandy 20-something.


Inhuman - 2/27/2013, 3:05 PM
Halle hasnt done shit lately. She'll prolly join soon to get back in the spotlight
TheRedSkull - 2/27/2013, 3:08 PM
Why couldn't Matthew Vaughan just come back and direct would be brilliant
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 2/27/2013, 3:09 PM
only if halle bulks up a bit and does a mohawk.
Cerebro - 2/27/2013, 3:10 PM
Do you know what happen when a frog gets hit with lightning? No thank you Halle, will pass.
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 2/27/2013, 3:10 PM
The way Hollywoods going now a days I wouldn't be surprised if they recast Halle with white actress. Why not, established character race doesn't matter to the studios.

l love me some halle berry

any body who says they want a more african storm go masturbate to national geographic

i love me some halle berry
TheBeard - 2/27/2013, 3:13 PM
she was horrible, PASS!!!!
Vadakin - 2/27/2013, 3:13 PM
Gotta love how Berry gave up trying to do an African accent after the first one.
ATrueHero1987 - 2/27/2013, 3:13 PM
@LEVITIKUZ You being sarcastic or are you serious??
Luminus - 2/27/2013, 3:14 PM
@hope420: That comment made no sense whatsoever. Storm's ethnicity is part of her character. It isn't arbitrary like say Perry White.
ATrueHero1987 - 2/27/2013, 3:15 PM
@teabag she is FINE as hell! I first saw her in Madea's Family Reunion. She truly is beautiful.
Luminus - 2/27/2013, 3:15 PM
@Vadakin: I saw the deleted scenes. Her accent wasn't bad. I don't understand why they cut it.
marvel72 - 2/27/2013, 3:16 PM
@ cerebro

that line of dialogue did suck but it wasn't because halle berry,it was how it was written.
MutantEquality - 2/27/2013, 3:16 PM
BOO!! I need someone straight from Africa that does the whole "weather speech" thing when she brings on the ass whooping. Halle doesn't seem African Goddess at all.
MercSoul - 2/27/2013, 3:17 PM
maybey she is old, but, storm is old in DOFP! bring her!
TheBeard - 2/27/2013, 3:17 PM
Hell yes, Rochelle Aytes has my vote. She is SMOKIN HOT!

InfiniteMonkey - 2/27/2013, 3:18 PM
Get a proper woman who can do an African Accent for sure. No Americanised women.
Halle is gorgeous but wrong for whom Storm as an X-Man is.
dezdigi - 2/27/2013, 3:18 PM
I think they will bring back Storm and Jean Grey as younger characters in the past, maybe Cyclops too.
This may be why they're still absent from the cast line-up.
Luminus - 2/27/2013, 3:19 PM
Only Angela Bassett has the gravity in acting to play Storm. Show me another who does with an example.
TopCat89 - 2/27/2013, 3:21 PM
Danai Gurira (Michonne) from Walking Dead......

Anyone but Halle Berry
ATrueHero1987 - 2/27/2013, 3:21 PM
@LEVITIKUZ I thought sure you said before that this was a movie you was looking forward to & you didn't have a problem with Singer directing. Maybe i'm getting this mixed up with The Wolverine.

TheDudeRises - 2/27/2013, 3:25 PM
The bitch is poison. Stay away.
silverdog - 2/27/2013, 3:25 PM
as much as I hated her as storm, they should bring her back as a cameo to finish her storyline. too late to recast (they should have done it 10 years ago between x-men and X2).
Facade - 2/27/2013, 3:31 PM
I'm cool with bringing her back. How about Colossus?
thespiderkat - 2/27/2013, 3:37 PM
didnt like her as storm either but the character was part of the DOFP story, so bring her back for a cameo like the others, even if its just to close her participation in the movie universe. I dont think she is gonna be in the same high horse she was before X2, coming from Swordfish ,Monster's Ball and Die Another Day...
Luminus - 2/27/2013, 3:41 PM
No need for her to be alive:

IronManny819 - 2/27/2013, 3:42 PM
Don Cheadle for Storm.
gambgel - 2/27/2013, 3:45 PM
Why is Singer/Fox doing this mistery thing?

to create bad press?

I dont think its smart by their part
mattattack - 2/27/2013, 3:45 PM
Just keep Storm outta DOFP.
