@jhazzroucher: Not really, Halle Berry in a white long haired wig doesn't make her resemble Storm any more or less. You guys make me wish they picked Angela Bassat instead, she has the talent, look, presence, and voice to rock as Storm.
Her performance in AmericanHorrorStory was epic. Back on subject, The wig didn't convince me. Her look in X2 and Last Stand, gave me the impression that they took on looks that fit Halle and showed us that this is "Halle Berry's Storm" not comic storm, if that make sense.
@roddy010: I think it's because we've seen Lupita play as a slave, and seen her smile a lot in her interviews and magazine covers. I think if they give Lupita a script that actually show her being worshipped as a goddess through her powers, her manner of approach, wrath, and keep the comic Storm speech pattern, then she can potentially make Storm into a live action icon. She's too early in her career to be stage typed or written off as too delicate for the character
