Halle Berry Confirmed to Reprise Role as Storm in Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     March 4, 2013


Director Bryan Singer (X-Men) has added yet another returning star in the jam-packed cast for his upcoming comic book film X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Reports have Halle Berry confirmed to return as the white-haired, weather-manipulating mutant, and joins a cast already composed of many other X-Men alumni.  The actress will be starring alongside other big names such as James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence,  Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Peter Dinklage when the film opens July 18, 2014.  Hit the jump for more info.

halle-berry-x-menDeadline reports that Berry will indeed return to reprise her role as Storm in Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Although Berry had never stated that she was in fact looking to return, it had been previously reported that the star was “90% confident” that she would reprise her role in the X-Men film.  That story turned out be correct when she confirmed in an interview with Blacktreetv that Storm would in fact return, albeit in an unknown capacity.  Also, earlier today Bryan Singer took to Twitter, a favorite of his for breaking production and casting news for the film, to state:

“Couldn’t be more excited that #HalleBerry has joined the cast of #XMen#DaysofFuturePast. Hopefully she can improve the weather in Montreal.”

The film was never short on star power, but getting Halle Berry back to play Storm should prove to be a great benefit to Singer, considering that the actress is a tremendous talent and that the character proves to be just as popular as ever in the current comics.  The new film is based off the comic book storyline Days of Future Past by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, and involves an adult Kitty Pryde transferring her consciousness to her younger self in the present day to prevent an apocalyptic anti-mutant future.  The storyline may be too far-fetched for a movie,  but the time travel aspect will allow Singer to juggle both timelines and casts, even if they never cross paths.  Check back for an interview we conducted with the actress concerning her role in the film.

    Noooooooooooooooooooo!!! Pleeeeease, God, Noooooooooooo!

    When will we hear news that Kelsey Grammer is coming back to reprise his role as Beast?

  • Marcus

    Where the hell is Jimmy Marsden?! nobody was interested in Storm back, but almost everyone wants Cyclops redeemed!!!

      True, but don’t you think Storm needs to be redeemed too?? She was my favorite X-Man for years so I’m sure you can imagine my reaction when I saw the movies. I hope to god they fix how wimpy and one-dimensional they made her. First Class was such a giant leap forward that I’m hoping bringing back the other actors and Singer won’t bring it down. No offense to the cast. They’re actually all excellent actors but I could tear those movies apart so easily (and cheerfully) it’s not even funny.

      We should all just watch Gina Torres in Firefly again. She’s practically Storm in spirit.

        Everything lee said. Storm was my favorite and this, this was just an epic miscast from the start. Plus, Gina Torres can kill you with her pinky!

  • E.T.

    I think Gabourey Sidibe could play a better Storm this…woman.

    She was awesome in X-Men 1 & 2. I cried at the end,then almost jumped outta my seat with excitement when they showed the outline of the phoenix gliding under the water,…that is,until Ratner came along & butchered one of the best X-Men stories ever!
    Come on B.Singer,…get it done!
