Now if anyone is interested in knowing my opinion for who I think should be considered to play a young storm
while she might not be a dead ringer for Halle Berry , I think she comes close and she is 20 years old so with the magic of hollywood she could pass for a teenage storm, she also has a lot of work under her belt.
Jean and Scott are easily cast... they're the good girl and the boy scout... easy. Storm is a fragging Goddess. Even if they want a more ultimate version of Storm, she's always edgy, she's always fierce, and she's always a monumental presence. I'm even thinking Lupita isn't up to the task. Maybe they should CG Storm in... lol
I have been thinking about this and can't come up with any black american actresses who has the chops and natural regality. I like Naomi Harris (I think she is british) and think she is a good actress but I don't know if she can give the fierce edginess we need. I would want to give her a heavy dose of captain Niobe (Jada's character from the Matrix) tough fierceness with Tyra Bank's height.
So you don't like Lupita?
CAN WE PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE STOP TALKING ABOUT HOW LUPITA SHOULD PLAY STORM , THERE ARE OTHER BLACK ACTRESSES IN THE WORLD. WITH A MORE EXPERIENCE AND LARGER RESUMES , LUPITA HAS ONLY BEEN IN 2 MOVIES EVER! AND SHE WAS A SUPPORTING CHARACTER IN ONE AND A MINOR ONE IN THE OTHER.
I mean, lets start saying that recast for Storm, Cyclops and Jean is already in progress and we also had some hints during the film.
Its better to have Lupita doing Storm because we already know she can act like hell, she also seems Young (pls dont tell me she seems 31 lol) and MOST OF ALL we need a huge actress for the role of Storm, so it would be easier to give her lots of screentime, i mean look at Jennifer Lawrence she became a 100% diva after Hunger Games and the other film with Bradley Cooper and then in this movie she is like the main character with a huge storyline. So yes, i would choose Lupita if this means that she is gonna have a bigger role in the next movies...we have to think bigger and with brain if we want to see more storm. imo anyway
What hints did you get that they are recasting ????
I didn't say she seems 31 , she is 31 , she was born 1983. also I never said she can't act I said she's not the only one who can do the role Halle Berry does not need to be replaced also, yes Jennifer got more screen time because she had hunger games , she's a star in her own franchise she also has a lot of credits under her belt , Lupita only has only done TWO MOVIES, none of which are a blockbuster, none of which are franchises and is a supporting character in both of them not a main character or the star, Jennifer lawrence does have an academy award and an Oscar and is well known as Lupita but Jennifer Lawrence has the leverage to demand more screentime , Lupita does not.
I don't need to think bigger you need to think smarter
Can't we just start a petition to have Lupita as Storm in Apocalypse?
I was really hoping I wouldn't hear that here . I knew the second she started getting popular everybody and they mama would be wanting her to play every single female black role out there , no I think Halle berry is fine where she is, if they're not gonna replace hugh jackman then they don't need to replace Halle Berry and if you meant a younger version of storm then I would still have my doubts because as young as she looks Lupita is 31 years old thats too old to play a teenage storm in the 80s. I don't want anyone thinking I don't like her cause I do and If she was blowing up in 1999 when they were casting for x-men then i would be ok with the idea. but this idea of the token black actress to play all the black role is extremely demeaning to all the actors of color and the work they are capable of. i'v yet to hear anyone saying "Jennifer lawrence is great , we should petition for her to play Gwen Stacy or SuperGirl and every other whit girl role out there ".
