Storm Will Not Be In X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Looks like she's ending up on the cutting room floor.

We all saw the little white haired girl in the trailer for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" which we can all assume is StormSuperherohype has posted a link to an audio interview with producer Lauren Shuler Donner.  She mentions that Storm did have a cameo but the scene has been cut from the movie.  It seems that the movie is currently just under two hours.  Donner also says that it doesn't appear that there will be many extra scenes for the DVD release. 

I do think this is a good thing.  For a movie that is supposed to be just about Wolverine and his 'origin,' there's almost as many mutants as the last X-Men movie.  This should be more about him and his history.  Sure his past is tied into those of certain other characters but the gratuitous cameos can be a bit much.  If it makes sense for the movie, great. Otherwise, I say leave them out.

If there is so much footage, it makes me wonder about the re-shoots and the rumor that more scenes with Deadpool were being shot.  Why add more to an already lengthy movie.  Yes we all want a huge long epic but sitting in a movie theatre for too long can literally be a pain in the butt.  Now if they shot a ton of footage and made two movies out of it, that'd be another story (and movie).

I like your idea of splitting it into two movies. Kind of like a Kill Bill type of thing. Of course if it tanks completely, then we will have to endure a second pile of crap. Or the second part wont even be released.

Good, i didn't think she'd really 'fit in' in this movie. =)

I agree it wouldn't add anything.

Also, I'd rather see him in the early 1900's and through weapon X so some of the X-men wouldn't even be born yet.

Its not like it would have been a huge role. Like delete Jubilee from the first X-Men.

I love the idea of seeing Deadpool, Gambit, Blob and whatshername but it seems like they shouldn't be there.  And Beak?  Really.  Why is he in Logan's past?

Yeah....some how they have to fit 100 years into an 1 1/2 hour movie.

She looked more like an escaping prisoner (potential test subject) during the flash cameo.

Agreed. Let's just add to 45 years of X-men stories that we have to pull from. shakes his head.

You think in the other X-Men movies, Storm would have remembered Logan too.

I actually liked the idea to have other X-Men characters appear...... but I was kind of expecting to have a young Magneto cameo...... or even a Captain America....... I would even take Bucky!!!

Even though Emma dosen´t fit into this I still would like to see her appear!

Oh I was talking about Emma Frost. I think Origin's is self contained. Not sure if it has any connection to the other X-Films (could be wrong about that though)

Beak is in this?  Perhaps that fact alone should be a warning sign.

Good.  Hallie Berry did enough to ruin the last X-Men movie.

i don't think her role is larger than a 4 second Cameo.

Unless, they put in a Intermission movie. (Don't see to many of those)

It's ok for me if Storm will not appear on the movie. I'll still watch it.

Posted by MissPants

She's a teenager in it in one scene, it shows her and a tornado right next to her. Cyclops is also in the scene.

No RoLo lovers here, sike! what's up? Have you seen the movie too?

No comments from the peanut gallery now. I am a true loyalist.

LMAO!

Edited by SUNMAN

there has been a lot of things wrong with the X-men movies and none have to do with Storm


besides with all the other Random appearances I bet storms, makes more sense than Cyclops, Emma Frost and Blob.
Posted by geometry

Agreed!

Posted by hpwaz

Beak is not in the movie.The original actor supposedly playing was recast as Bolt(a member of the Weapon X team)

"None have to do with Storm"?  Seriously?  Are you talking about the actual script, or the actress?  Either way, both sucked.  Storm got her ass handed to her by Toad, and Halle Berry is not a good actress to begin with. 
Posted by Nightwolf3

I still think this movie should've been called

Wolverine Origins (And a cameo of everyone else in the X-Universe's Origins)

Honestly it's just getting rediculous, every day theres a new cameo of someone else at a younger age lol

Posted by StormAmazonPhoenix

Who cares if she did or didn't make an appearance?

Posted by why so serious

haha glad too.

Posted by rbysjti

i care because it would have boosted more money if that scene of Storm was included.
