RUMOR: James Marsden And Halle Berry Wanted For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

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.

FrozenJoy - 12/5/2012, 5:06 PM

DanteSparda - 12/5/2012, 5:07 PM

Spideyguy94 - 12/5/2012, 5:08 PM
Yes to marsden, he really got the short end of the stick in the previous movies and got killed off screen F*CKING RATNER!!! No to berry she was awful
xsnakeplisskenx - 12/5/2012, 5:08 PM
I'm just not fine. With any of this. yet.
marvel72 - 12/5/2012, 5:10 PM
i thought halle berry had a falling out with singer & said something along the lines of that she wouldn't return for x-men 3 if singer was directing.

hence why ratner directed the third movie,i do hope both of them return though.
JatevinM - 12/5/2012, 5:13 PM
As long as I get Storm I don't care who plays her.
StrangeHero - 12/5/2012, 5:14 PM
I've heard nothing but horrible things about Halle Berry as a person. I say reboot her character and get it over with.
FrozenJoy - 12/5/2012, 5:15 PM
Bring It!


Spideyguy94 - 12/5/2012, 5:15 PM
@marvel72 singer left X3 because he was offered superman returns, then Matthew vaughn came in to direct that's why vinnie jones was cast, then vaughn left with like 2 weeks before they where scheduled to start shooting then ratner came in.

"For one, Jackman and the others will appear mostly in scenes depicting an alternate dystopic future."

Does that mean they are gonna recast Wolverine and original trilogy co. after this one?

"Second, there is a great deal of goodwill on the part of the actors to return, thanks mostly to the involvement of Bryan Singer."

Singer pulling strings to smooth things out hopefully. But moving forward with McAvoy and Fassbender bodes well I think.

JatevinM - 12/5/2012, 5:24 PM
Why would they recast them after this one? Their characters circumstances will change not they way they look.
RSDhillon - 12/5/2012, 5:26 PM
Man, I love Cylops! Hope he returns.
Also, Marsden is GREAT on 30 Rock!
bazinga85 - 12/5/2012, 5:30 PM
The scale of this movie is getting bigger and bigger ...let's hope they get too carried away and bring back the cast of Origins: Wolverine...that would definetely suck.
bazinga85 - 12/5/2012, 5:31 PM
*DON'T get too carried away...
mk - 12/5/2012, 5:31 PM
not that excited.. but yeah large scale.... and so much underused characters
DanteSparda - 12/5/2012, 5:35 PM
@Mercwitham0uth

No fûck you!
campblood - 12/5/2012, 5:40 PM
like marsden hate halle
continuezero - 12/5/2012, 5:41 PM
This thing is shapin up interestingly but for real...Fanboys need to relax on Ellen Page. How about average at best. I prefer she's back but fanboys are acting like she's Rebecca Romajin.
AshleyWilliams - 12/5/2012, 5:44 PM
Hell yes Cyclops!
MisterMagurlypse - 12/5/2012, 5:45 PM
Marsden was decent. I think he still hasn't gotten the chance to really bring Scott Summers to glory, with the Jackman/Wolverine character getting most of the spotlight. I wouldn't bitch about his return.

As far as Berry, I'm with the majority on this in saying, HELL NOOO!!!
gambgel - 12/5/2012, 5:49 PM
MOVIEWEB is posting false information guys!

They are just reporting the HollywoodReporter article, and they dont say Halle and James are in talks, they just posted their names as examples of original actors with no confirmation yet.

#FALSENEWS
luffycapri - 12/5/2012, 5:50 PM
Next up, Ellen page
StarkAnthony - 12/5/2012, 5:51 PM
Based on what they say here it sounds like the alternate future they avoid means that the one from X1-3 does happen. I would like this to be a sort of reboot like Star Trek...Or maybe just reboot the whole thing. First Class should have been a pure reboot.
ATrueHero1987 - 12/5/2012, 5:55 PM
@Gambit89 Sorry but I don't think that's going to happen because The Wolverine takes place after X3.

You know, part of me wants them to reboot X-Men(First Class is NOT a reboot)....is that wrong? :)
PeterParker1991 - 12/5/2012, 5:57 PM
Bring Marsden back. Recast Storm
ATrueHero1987 - 12/5/2012, 5:57 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 Don't tell me why he gets a new visor....but then again, I probably won't get issue #3 2 weeks from now. -_- Hell, tell me but put spoiler tags.
StormLoganSummers - 12/5/2012, 6:02 PM
Sounds great! I hope it's true!
shamo - 12/5/2012, 6:03 PM
people want Ellen Page back??? bytch was a horrible kitty pride.

i'm indifferent towards bringing these back though.
TheGambitFreak - 12/5/2012, 6:04 PM
Whoop whoop! James Marsden, Oklahoma represent!

Don't give shit about Halle Berry. But she BETTER have her God damn mohawk!
Nick56 - 12/5/2012, 6:05 PM
[frick] yes! This movie is going to be epic!
TheGambitFreak - 12/5/2012, 6:08 PM
And for [frick]s sakes, get Gambit's bitch ass in the film, especially if Matt Bomer could take the role. But Taylor Kitsch or Jared Padelacki would do...
ATrueHero1987 - 12/5/2012, 6:16 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 That explains the cover for #3. Yea, even though I subscribed to All New X-Men, I don't get it on the day it comes out. Which sucks...
SimyJo - 12/5/2012, 6:18 PM
James Marsden has always bored the crap outta me with his portrayal of Cyclops - but Berry shouldn't return if possible - get a proper dark-skinned African actress to portray the comic book Storm / Ororo Munroe.

nowtheresaBATman - 12/5/2012, 6:27 PM
Halle Berry is a stupid *****.

& so is Bryan Singer.
ATrueHero1987 - 12/5/2012, 6:34 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 I've only read #1 and that was a GREAT issue. I had to read that again. So just to be clear, Eva & Christopher(I believe that's him on the cover of Uncanny X-Men #1 Marvel Now cover) is part of Cyclops new "crew"??
