All Storm fans would love to see a Storm movie, that's a given.

Storm I think has a very interesting back story and history. If it were brought to life on the big screen I think it would be epic. We would just need great writers, GOOD special effects, and of course great acting.

The movie should start out with the witches that Ororo descends from. It is said that these witches were probably mutants. There should be a scene where they predict the birth of a powerful wind goddess (Storm, or her great grandmother many times removed). Of course this scene should take place many many years before the modern world is born.

Of course writers will "tweak" things a bit but they should show Ororo's mother N'Dare in her native Kenya and how she rebels against tradition and meets her husband, they fall in love, get married, move to New York and have Ororo. This to me should however be a small portion of the movie. Then of course have the tragic scene where they move to Cairo and her parents are killed.

Now the meat of Ororo's story comes! She is taken in by the band of thieves pick pockets and raised to be a thief. Then show how she grows into a young woman, wanders across Africa, her powers manifest, then she becomes the goddess figure for those tribes in Kenya. I think it be interesting to see the little things that happen to her along the way i.e. meeting T' Challa, almost being raped, meeting the Shadow King, Prof X.

Then of course when shes recruited to join the X-Men.

Now I know a lot of Storm fans did not like Eric Jerome Dickey's origin story because it was not consistent with some of the events depicted in the earlier X-Men comics that touched on Storm's origin story. But as you know movie writers won't stick with the comics anyway.

What would you like to see with a Storm movie? One idea I had was that a young Xavier and/or Magneto try to recruit the first Windrider to join them but she rejects them, then years later of course they discover Ororo. I mentioned that other Windrider in a previous blog I wrote.

Can you see Beyoncé as storm?

The problem with a Storm movie is that she's so well integrated with the X-Men that her story is incomplete without the team. Even Wolverine(who's far less attached with the team) had to appear in an X-Men film before he got his own origin movie.  
Another problem is unlike Wolverine(whom I will continue to use as an example because he's the one that got the solo film so far) Storm doesn't have any real consist rivals to use as antagonists for the film. And her most notable foes that I know of, Callisto and Shadow King, don't really work as threats for a whole film. So she'd have to borrow a antagonist, which I don't think would most likely lead to a weakened plot.  
Personally I think the antagonist thing is the biggest issue because the origin part is always the slowest(and usually most boring) part of a superhero film and without a big time foe the movie will have to spend a good chunk of time building up said new foe.

@Agent9149: not at all, I can't see her in the roles shes already played, not the best actress for me, as for her look....mmmm yea :-P

@Decoy Elite: that's where the writers can get creative, you've made a good point about her not having a big foe, they can expand upon maybe her uncle trying to kill her, or the shadow king, the writers (good ones hopefully) can make it interesting, but I will be honest I don't think she will get her own movie LOL

@StormyWeather: Yeah, that's true. I'm just saying I wouldn't be too excited for the theoretical film unless it had some really good backing. 
Also just remembered that I butchered Callisto with random powers was in X3 IIRC and was Storm's rival(or as close to a rival as that film got, given Wolverine basically stole the entire film).

@Decoy Elite: yea pretty much, that's when we comic fans get ticked off with the writers LOL (Callisto's random powers)

That's the biggest problem really. That triangle WAS the movie

@Decoy Elite: I feel that Callisto could've been good..................Even the movie version...............Dania looked great

I just wish that they would've cared more about developing her as a character.

@White Mage: Yeah, same thing with most of the mutants who appear in that film.  
The Omegas get the worst of it. Callisto had like, two lines at best.  And then that other dude(?) didn't even get a single line, just stood around glaring at people.

................"Quill"? He had one of the worst powers in the movie, and didn't even need to be included. Magneto didn't need an "Army". He needed well-developed Brotherhood members. PYRO was his bread and butter? F*cking REALLY?

Not Quill, the third one that everyone forgets, lol. Quill actually got to talk the most I think, which is just sad. 
Ugh, agreed. I'll never get why they chucked Mystique out of the movie relativity early on.

Ohmayra should have been Callisto, if they were going to really cast it right.

But, as Arclight, she was abused. You have a top model who is playing the role of an androgynous villain with badass powers, and you're going to group her with QUILL, and INVISALIGN rip off PSYLOCKE?!
