Halle Berry To Return As Storm In 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'

The actress reveals her excitement over her reprisal of the role in the upcoming 'X-Men' film.

Director Bryan Singer has been keeping pretty busy lately splitting his time between celebrating the success of his latest film, Jack The Giant Slayer at the box office (it hit number one over the weekend) and making some additions to cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director of the upcoming X-Men movie tweeted his excitement over the announcement that actress Halle Berry would return to reprise the role of Storm in the upcoming film.

The actress spoke of her excitement over joining the cast of Days, even if she isn't quite sure what her role in the upcoming movie will be. Berry revealed in a recent interview that she "loves" Storm and is "happy to be back."

"I love Storm. This character is so loved by so many people and I am just happy to be back," The actress said. When she was asked what her role in the film would be, she replied that she was "not sure," but that "the script, as it always is with 'X-Men' is a work in progress, it is [presently] being honed and figured out." Regardless of what role she will play and how the addition of a character like Storm will impact the film in general, Halle Berry is happy to be back. "Whatever it is that I will end up being, I am just happy to be back. I love that character."

With so many actors and actresses announced, one has to wonder how Singer will fit them all into one film. What do you think of the news of Halle Berry's return to Storm? Are you looking forward to seeing the actress return to the role?

I like that Halle Berry's returning to the film, I honestly don't think we'll see a lot of the future cast. I think we'll just see them in a dystopian futures for a few minutes throughout the film that at being said it'll be nice if this film can fix all the flaws that occurred in X3.

Usually I'm not really a major Storm fan, but I really liked her in the x men movies. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm still waiting to see if Nightcrawler is in it.

I have no problem her being storm. She only had a problem because there was too much wolverine, which she was right. I have take back anything I said about her acting, than again with Megan Fox taking April ‘o Neil we know it can be worst. yes, I am easily compromised.

I don't like. I was hoping they would've gotten someone else.

@sturmritter: I imagine Storm to have more power and presence to her. Halle didn't bring that in my opinion (too soft and low energy). Zoe Saldana would be infinitely better imo. But I don't think all these parts need to have A-List actors attached to them either. Just find an actress with more energy and oomph to her.

Yeah, the more I think about this the more it seems like a bad thing.

Oh no, I voiced my opinion on the internet. Someone ban me.

Oh no. Isn't there ANY other black actress available?!? Poor Mr. Singer, he's going to have to deal with Halle going on about how she's an Oscar winner AGAIN!

Time travel fixes all; they better have Cable or Bishop involved!!!!

They are bringing Halle back along with Patrick and Ian and Anna and of course Hugh, so I'm happy. I hope Scott and Jean can return eventually too... with the original actors as well as good old Kelsey in the final 2.

Brian Singer doesn't deserve to make comic related films.

@GreenFuse: Zoe Saldana would have been good, as her role in Columbiana would attest, but the continuity factor included, lends itself to Halle reprising her role. Not that Zoe couldn't have done the first movies as well, but I really didn't mind Halle as Storm, so a reprise rather than a new actor makes more sense, at least in my view.

It is what it is, though. Heck, I probably won't see the movie anyways til DVD lol (Nearest theatre is 17 miles from my home, and may not show it =/)

Was expecting that...and of course that doesn't mean I'm excited about it. Just was expecting it.

If Singer is behind the helm, everyone take comfort in knowing that he knows what he's doing. Legit.

Meh

I truly wished they went with an unknown. I wish they had went with anyone else,

hmmmm

I am super excited about Storm's return and I think I personally will enjoy this film much more than THE AVENGERS (I preferred the characters' individual films over the collective film and I felt MEH over BLACK WIDOW being utilized as the sole female over better women like MS MARVEL, WASP, or SCARLET WITCH).

I think its great that this film will serve as a dual-sequel and I feel Bryan will not only make for X3's shortcomings but will make a great ensemble film in general.

I'm just hoping that Magik or Rachel make appearances to account for the time travel versus some other mutant created just for the purpose of the movie.

Omar Sy is also cast in this movie, could be Bishop.

I'm happy Storm is in the movie but... NOOOOO HALLE BERRY! She was the worst casting for Storm, ever.

If Halle Berry didn't come back Storm wouldn't be in the movie! It would be ridiculous changing only one actress from the old cast!

"I know what will make a great movie! Lets spend all our money on actors so that the rest of the movie will look like shit!" <-- this is how the planning for this movie must have happened

I would rather have a recast:P.

@Falconer: Left my ban hammer at home. But just you wait...

Seriously, wait for me. I'm going to run home real quick and get it.

so why Halle and not a younger actress when they've had younger actors as Prof X and Magneto?

Me too. They did a great job with the Avengers, hopefully they would have done a great job with the X-Men.

Not necessarily. They could have been like "Listen Halle, we don't want to recast you in this film. However, if you would like to go out and be like, 'I would have loved to return to the X-men films as Storm but unfortunately I had scheduling conflicts and I really have been wanting to have more time to spend with my child.' then we won't say anything on our side about it."

Movies, tv shows, etc. do that all the time. Sort of like Ellen with American Idol. She was totally fired from it. But they let her be like, "Well I tried it but the experience wasn't quite what I expected and so I decided to leave the show."

Maybe there will be a younger actress, we still dont know what direction there going with this. Maybe a young Storm will be introduced in the 70's which im hoping for.

She could bow out gracefully and save us all.
