Halle Berry Says She’s "90% Sure" She'll Be Back As Storm In X-MEN: DOFP

Halle Berry Says She’s "90% Sure" She'll Be Back As Storm In X-MEN: DOFP

Yesterday we heard Bryan Singer say that he'd like to work with Berry again, but we'd have to see how things worked out. Well, it seems he wasn't just being political as the actress herself has confirmed that she'll (most likely) return as Ororo Monroe..

Don't worry guys, maybe the next article will be officially official confirmation! Shadow And Act have posted a tease of an interview they have coming up with Halle Berry, and it seems - barring something drastic - that we will indeed be seeing her don the white wig once again as Storm in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. They don't post any direct quotes from Berry, but here's how they describe her reaction after being asked whether she'll be returning.

"She did confirm to me that she would be returning in the role. Most likely. Practically 90% sure. And she nodded a lot too.

I can’t say, and neither could she say that it’s definitely a done deal, and that the contracts have all been signed, with all the “i”s dotted and the “t”s crossed.

She told me that are a few details that are still being negotiated which she couldn’t get into. But since she did tell me that the film starts shooting in April, it’s highly unlikely that talks are going to suddenly and horribly fall apart at this point."

So there you have it. It sounds like they are just working out a few final negotiations, and Berry will be back on board the merry Mutant train. Berry is ..polarizing as Storm to say the least, but for the sake of continuity this is a good thing, right?

Really wish First Class would have been a reboot. Now we have to endure another year of terrible casting choices in an otherwise good film.
marvel72 - 2/28/2013, 6:21 PM
of course she'll be back its another paycheck,she's not as sort after an actress as she once was.
cyclopstb - 2/28/2013, 6:22 PM
I hope she comes back.

Well this isn't good news. Good for continuity, but just bad overall.
iJackSparrow - 2/28/2013, 6:33 PM
I don't like her portrayal as Storm but for continuity's sake I'd welcome her return, even if it's just for a pass the torch sort of thing.

i agree capt jack. i honestly think she wasn't that bad as storm. i think angela basset would've been better but i think she's quite older than berry.
JDUKE25 - 2/28/2013, 6:36 PM
who cares

90% sure she has the role back, 10% not sure she can act the part. Yay, continuity...
dellamorte1872 - 2/28/2013, 6:38 PM
I agree gimme someone darker Halle doesn't pull off the African Queen thing at all!
JDUKE25 - 2/28/2013, 6:38 PM
Zoe Saldana would be my choice. I love her.
Reasonnnn - 2/28/2013, 6:40 PM
She was great in Cloud Atlas. The Call looks like a terrible film though.
BlackHulk - 2/28/2013, 6:40 PM
Truth be told, real comic book fans shouldnt be satisfied with any of the performances by the actors in the first three xmen movies. Nearly all the performances were a direct 180 from the comic book background for each character.
OrgasmicPotatoe - 2/28/2013, 6:41 PM
At least (following the franchise's logic) she is going to have an absolutely WONDERFUL wig !

It looks like her hair got better the bigger the pay check was.
Ramiel - 2/28/2013, 6:42 PM
Jennifer Lawrence said filming begins in May, while Halle says April. Hmmm...
dellamorte1872 - 2/28/2013, 6:44 PM
Halle is prolly just filming the future cameo while Lawrence's part is in the "real" time
dellamorte1872 - 2/28/2013, 6:45 PM
Hence two different start dates

another reason for some of us not to be so hyped for this film.
I am really crossing my fingers this turns out as good or better than first class though.
dickmastaflex - 2/28/2013, 6:49 PM
She must of had some bad agents man, hey Halle want to kill that career your making for yourself bang Billy Bob and take the lead in this horrific catwomen solo idea.
theomegasanction - 2/28/2013, 6:50 PM
agree with Jerbear
LFANCH - 2/28/2013, 6:52 PM
I was really hoping they would introduce the young first class-era storm. Cyclops and Jean wouldn't really work because cyclops was in high school in wolverine so he either isn't alive yet or is a baby. Of course it isn't like they give a [frick] about continuity
dickmastaflex - 2/28/2013, 6:54 PM
So 10% of her is not shore if she's getting re-cast for her monotone acting.
FalafelVsShawarma - 2/28/2013, 6:58 PM

Storm definitely the Third most underused character in X-Men Trilogy.The first and second are Scott and Bobby.
LikeAPhoenix - 2/28/2013, 7:00 PM
This is an insult to the comic book community! This ungrateful, untalented nutjob, who constantly uses the race card, care nothing about the character, franchise, genre, or art form. She's just out for herself.

She has no chemistry whatsoever with other characters in trilogy. Rewatch her scenes in X2 with Famke confronting Nightcrawler in the abandoned church. Then check out her subsequent scene with Nightcrawler on the X-Jet when Nightcrawler told her about his self inflicted body tatoos. And don't forget that awful scene with Rogue in X3 regarding the cure, where she just lectured Rogue and even finished Rogue's lines. ABSOLUTELY NOT CHEMISTRY!!!
superherofan21 - 2/28/2013, 7:00 PM
@dellamorte1872 Um... Jenifer Lawrence is playing Mystique. Not Storm. Don't know where you got that from....
iJackSparrow - 2/28/2013, 7:02 PM
Zoe Saldana would be AMAZING as Storm, can't think of anyone better than her for the part. Hell, I'd be happy with Rutina Wesley getting the job.
FirstAvenger - 2/28/2013, 7:03 PM
Jduke that's my dream Storm!!! Lol ;-)
gaikinger - 2/28/2013, 7:05 PM
Should have been a reboot...yes.
CoolantTech - 2/28/2013, 7:07 PM
Hot as hell and an alright actress.. welcome back Halle

(Secretly though long ago as a kid before any X-men film came out in the late 80's I always thought that Angela Basset and Patrick Steward would make a good Storm and Xavier.,but didn't know which actor could play Wolverine...)
FalafelVsShawarma - 2/28/2013, 7:10 PM
@superhero fan

No,he means Halle Berry would start shooting in April because it only be the future cameo of storm and co.from the previous trilogy...Then Lawrence who play "the real time"/FC Mystique would shoot in May,so there are two different start dates...

@music, hahaha yeah I said that for sure! Time to go bed!
deanwilkins - 2/28/2013, 7:14 PM
She was the worst part of each X film. Even worse than Jugger-bitch. She is a horrible actor. Terrible. Worst choice for Storm ever. Now I'm starting to really worry about this film.
thewolfx - 2/28/2013, 7:15 PM
Why was anyone thinkin theyd recast storm when they arent recastin anyone else.
