Halle Berry Confirms Her Return as Storm in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Halle Berry likely to return as Storm in X-Men: Days of Future PastHalle Berry has confirmed that she will return as the popular weather-manipulating white haired mutant Storm in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

In a recent interview, the actress stated that she is 90% sure director Bryan Singer is bringing her back into the fold, and that the character has a substantial role in this prequel-sequel mash-up. At this time, she has not officially signed a deal, but its highly unlikely that she will drop out or that she will be replaced, as the film begins shooting in a little over a month, with production starting in April.

Halle Berry has played Storm three times, in X-Men and X2: X-Men United, both directed by Bryan Singer , and lastly in X-Men: The Last Stand, directed by Brett Ratner.

Halle Berry most recently appeared in the sketch comedy film Movie 43 and Warner Bros' historic thriller Cloud Atlas.

Official studio confirmation on the actress' return is expected soon, with Bryan Singer to most likely announce it on his personal Twitter page.

X-Men: Days of Future Past was released May 23rd, 2014.

        @skywise I didn't care too much for that film, I found it empty and boring. Thanks for the help.

          @incmob Ya they should really leave the accent alone. Either get someone who is Kenyan or can do that accent or dont touch it. That is worse than botching a Brittish accent or a southern accent IMO.

            @instead8909 The movie your thinking of is Swordfish. The one where she was paid to show her boobs. Thats all I can really remeber about that movie.

              Out side of the X-men films I find she's a better actress, loved her version of Catwoman however Sharon Stone was a little off. Just recently I bought a collection of Sly Stallone films under one package and I enjoyed all of them.

              I remember that she did another film with Hugh Jackman but I can't seem to remember the title. John Travolta did a bad performance in it.

              The actress/comedian that played Will Smith's aunt in his TV series looks like Storm. Though I think she's too old for the part now.

                @incmob Vanessa Williams can't act? What universe do you live in? I don't think she's right for this character, but then I don't think Berry is either. I would have liked Thandie Newton in this role, or an unknown.

                  @instead8909 i agree. i think at the time there was very few actresses that could fill the role. predominately she was at that time the most well known black actress to portray storm. i remember in the early 90's that vanessa williams was the solid choice. of course she had the look of storm but could not act worth a damn. would not bother me a bit if storm was recast.

                    @skywise so was the terrible accent she had that mysteriously vanished from time to time in the first one... then went away altogether in the next two films...lol.

                      Personally I'm glad Storm is back, this may be the best Xmen movie yet.

                        Eh. The reason people want her back, is because she was always and WILL always be a background character. She's never been a focus and never had any character development in all three films. So people want her back, because they haven't seen her being a bad Storm. Well, at least she's not Catwoman anymore...

                          Personaly I thought Halle Berry was great as storm but the wig in X Men 1 was pretty bad.

                            She also needs her white hair back to the way it was. That whole modern punk look doesn't work for me personally

                              No problem here either, but I would make a suggestion for the next actress to at least make the character sound like she's from Kenya

                                    I actually rather enjoyed her in the first set of films. Glad to see she's back.

                                          Okay, but I personally think that someone else needs to be this character, I find that Hally still isn't the right person.
