How Will Halle Berry's Pregnancy Affect Storm In X-MEN: DOFP?

How Will Halle Berry's Pregnancy Affect Storm In X-MEN: DOFP?

When it was announced that the actress was expecting, we all wondered if and how it would affect her appearance as Storm in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Well according to Berry herself, the character will still be "an integral part" of the film, though some changes will have to be made.

It seems the fact that Halle Berry is expecting her second child with fiance Olivier Martinez isn't going to stop her reprising the role of Storm in Bryan Singer's currently shooting follow up to X-Men: First Class. When the BBC UK asked her about it, the gorgeous actress reveals that although no changes have been made to the script, they would have to "shoot around the bump" and the character probably won't be getting in on the action as much as originally planned.

"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."

X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart, and will hit theaters July 18, 2014.

Oh come on! Just recast Storm!
KainAndDisabel - 4/11/2013, 8:02 AM
take a hint from pirates 4, it wont work, recast
HULK2099 - 4/11/2013, 8:18 AM
yeah just stunt double, don't kill the action just because of a baby
Invictor - 4/11/2013, 8:18 AM
They could say during the events of the film, she and Black Panther were at it :).
FirstAvenger - 4/11/2013, 8:19 AM
She'll won't be able to do the movie... It's a win win for everybody!
CCWGGuy - 4/11/2013, 8:23 AM
A Storm that doesn't fly or fight? Well whats the point then? Seriously? Why even have her character at all then?
TonyChu - 4/11/2013, 8:25 AM
She got the prince of Wakanda in her belly.
PsyGuy - 4/11/2013, 8:27 AM
This really blows.

Why would one of the most powerful X-Men be sitting on the sidelines...
Maculis - 4/11/2013, 8:33 AM
hopefully it means she'll drop out
Roscoe182 - 4/11/2013, 8:34 AM
i hope she cant do the film .. she is a terrible actress.she was the worst casting out of the entire x-men franchise .. hell id of made a better storm and im a 28 year old white male ................... and my tits are bigger.
RorMachine - 4/11/2013, 8:35 AM
Guys, the film is shooting..she's doing it.
Ocelot - 4/11/2013, 8:35 AM
Just write the damn character out of the film, it's not too difficult when you've got sentinels, simply have them kill her off, off screen. Or just simply recast the character.
russburlingame - 4/11/2013, 8:38 AM
Not surprised. I wrote about this on another site last week (though obviously without her quote). She's 46; pregnancies at that age aren't as routine as they are when you're younger. Wire work would have been wildly dangerous and other alternatives are only marginally better.
deamon - 4/11/2013, 8:39 AM
Wait till October with scenes with her, what a problem.
TheRationalOne - 4/11/2013, 8:40 AM
Just because they're filming doesn't mean they can't, and shouldn't recast. There's lots of movies that began filming with one actor then they got fired or quit and the scenes were shot with a new one. It's still early enough to can the broad.
TheRationalNerd - 4/11/2013, 8:50 AM
Or how about they just get a stunt double for over the shoulder shots or birds eye view action sequences?? I'm kinda disappointed to hear the news that Storm was actually planned to have more action scenes and we won't get to see that. However I can't be mad at the fact that someones pregnant, that's wayyy too She should name the child (if it's a girl) "Ororo" xD

Anyway, really hoping that Storms missing action scenes won't take too much away from the film :(((
santoanderson - 4/11/2013, 8:50 AM
I bet Halle will ask Singer if they can write a scene where all the X-men go out for cheeseburgers.
Dvantassel23 - 4/11/2013, 8:51 AM
Recast she sucked balls as storm, overrated actress
Rodney21a - 4/11/2013, 8:56 AM
brazilianbatman - 4/11/2013, 8:57 AM
can we get Cyclops in action instead of looking pretty.
brazilianbatman - 4/11/2013, 8:57 AM
if they recast I would go for zoe saldana
IIIAdamantiumIII - 4/11/2013, 8:58 AM
paint her belly green and cgi it out ?
gambgel - 4/11/2013, 9:00 AM
She said on another interview that her stunt woman will do much work now.

So dont get worried, babies
TheGlove - 4/11/2013, 9:01 AM
Just recast her, she's a bit crap anyways. get Angela Basset!
XK1D - 4/11/2013, 9:03 AM
She can still fly and fight, it's called a stunt double! But there's always the option to have be cgi, at least for the flying scenes.
wavehunter - 4/11/2013, 9:04 AM
Wont matter. I'm not seeing this film because it will suck. Bryan Singer stinks at CBM's.
wavehunter - 4/11/2013, 9:05 AM
The Glove is right. Berry is crap at this role.
InfiniteMonkey - 4/11/2013, 9:06 AM
Get a real person with a proper accent in there.

[frick]ing American accented Storm. LMFAO!
FOXMEN = Shit faced Wolverine and the gang.
third3ye - 4/11/2013, 9:07 AM
What a bunch of baloney, everyone knows I gave her that second child.

As for the movie and pregnancy, all I gotta say is - CGI M*THAF*CKA, CGI!!!
TheRationalNerd - 4/11/2013, 9:08 AM

(phew) Thank God!!! I knew Storm was going to get much more action this go around. Hopefully all goes well! Can't wait to see some set pics!! I don't even think we'll get a teaser trailer for this until like this October/November.
Greengo - 4/11/2013, 9:09 AM
I know it's too much to ask, but I exchange some flying for a boobie shot.

Her boobs should be nice and plump.
TheRationalNerd - 4/11/2013, 9:09 AM

Lol!!! Freakng agreed man!!!
chloejono - 4/11/2013, 9:16 AM
defo kick her out she shit
JDUKE25 - 4/11/2013, 9:20 AM
This is BS...... Should've never brought her back. Fire her a$$. Get someone who isn't knocked up and better suited for Storm.
JatevinM - 4/11/2013, 9:27 AM
You know what I'd go ahead and film all of her scenes right now while they can before she blows up
DrRockso - 4/11/2013, 9:27 AM
Her big fat titties will now play a prominent role in the film.
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 4/11/2013, 9:32 AM
i agree with what someone said...stunt double...fawking hate recasts...don't kill the action...problem solved
fortycals - 4/11/2013, 9:35 AM
I actually didnt mind Halle as storm. She wasnt great but not horrible. I would have liked storm to have an accent but its not a deal breaker for me. Scarjo played a good BW without an accent. All that said recast storm. My biggest problem with storm in the originals was the lack of action and lack of power demonstration. If they cut the action or have a poor fit for a stunt double, i would be highly upset. I do hope for the best though.

@ gusto
Preggo woman might look icky, but they got the wettest stuff out there. Im talking waterfalls. So flip it over, smack dat ass, and ride the wave.

@ greengo
Man Halle has got some of the best tits around, i could only imagine them even more swollen. What was it, a extra couple mil for her to show them in Swordfish for the first time. Then after that she was showing them off everywhere.
SecretWarrior - 4/11/2013, 9:38 AM
his is pretty ridiculous. She knew she had a big movie coming up. Couldn't se act a little more responsible? Unless she actively was trying to have a baby and took the role anyway.

She is three or so months preg. She got cast about then didnt she?

Maybe she just thought at her age she wasnt going to conceive lol
SigmaCenturion - 4/11/2013, 9:46 AM
Just recast her. Save everyone the trouble of shooting around someone that can't handle the role.
