Halle Berry as Storm

There was already plenty of anticipation for the X-Men: First Class sequel when it was revealed the film was actually titled X-Men: Days of Future Past, taking on one of the more iconic storylines in the mutant superhero ensemble's rich history. And then even more heads turned when it was revealed that Bryan Singer was coming on to direct the film and he was bringing familiar faces like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan as older Professor X and Magneto, and some of the other junior X-Men. However, we've yet to hear any news about Halle Berry, who played Storm in the original film franchise.

Well, the actress recently talked to Shadow and Act, and she's pretty damn certain that she'll be back as the weather manipulating mutant in the X-Men prequel/sequel. Though they don't have any direct quotes, the article says, "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." The article goes on to say there 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, and the producers have to scramble to find a replacement at the very last minute."

I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that we'll see Halle Berry pop up as Storm in X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, we're still waiting to hear whether or not Famke Janssen and James Marsden will reprise their roles as Jean Grey and Cyclops, and since Jennifer Lawrence is playing a young Mystique, Rebecca Romijn might show up again after a very quick cameo in X-Men: First Class. All I know is this is quite the exciting prospect, and I can't wait to see how this whole time travel line with the young and old X-Men plays out on the big screen next year when the film hits theaters on July 18th, 2014. Stay tuned for updates.

  • With this's pretty much "The Avengers" of the X-Men franchise.

      it clearly is. The good thing is that the plot is already much better than Avengers, so lets hope the X-men franchise has the very first huge boxoffice impact with this story
      • hostile
        Avengers is waaay overrated.
        • Incorrect. It's extremely popular, successful, and great...which makes people think it's "cool" to call it over-rated.
          • hostile
            Is it that hard to accept that some of us just don't like it that much? Or even at all ? Besides when did the taste of general public start being an accurate meter for quality ? The Avengers is o.k. but nothing to piss your pants about.Most of you fanboys do.
          • Each to his own, but in general, I find people that insist on calling successful, popular, films that received fantastic reviews 'Over-rated' to be a little unoriginal and uninspired. To argue that YOU didn't like it is fine...but to argue that the general consensus on the film is not true is just tedious. Saying things are 'over-rated' is over-rated. It's over-rated? It didn't get a 90+% on Rottentomatoes? It didn't gross over $1.5 Billion at the worldwide box office? It isn't enjoyed by most who saw it? That never happened? Those things are what they are, that's the reaction it had. It's "rated" as a success in every say it's "over-rated" and act like those things aren't true, or are inaccurate, is just tiresome.
          • a snob
            ...and that is one of the reasons I weep for the human race...
          • says a guy who willingly calls himself "a snob" like it's something to be proud of...
          • xcv
            ...look up parody in a dictionary "Mr.takes everything at face value"...doubt it's meant to be literal...
          • He's quite literally acting like a snob. Anyone who 'weeps for the human race' in regards to the tastes of the general public and film critic community is truly being a snob...
          • xcv
            No,a real snob would not use a name like " a snob" and then post something so obvious.This shows the whole comment to be there just to troll you for the sake of comedy.
          • It wasn't funny at all
      • This movie won't be anywhere near the hit that The Avengers was. No X-men movie has ever even hit $500 million worldwide, and the last 2 films have seen diminishing returns(First Class grossed the least and sold the fewest tickets of them all)...they need something like this just to pull a rebound.
  • Django
    Of course she will. She don't have anything better going on.
    • hostile
      "She don't have" ?Are you trying to sound "urban" or is your grammar really that bad ? And I bet she do have more going on than you.

        Geez hes a freed slave for christ sake give him some time.
  • castingcouch
    Pretty much a matter of giving her the right number on a contract.
