Exclusive: Halle Berry Confirms To S & A That She's Coming Back As Storm (Well, Almost Certain...)

Earlier today I spoke with Halle Berry for an interview that will appear on S & A next week. But to give you a tease, the first thing I did ask her was whether she would be returning as Storm in the next X Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, since Tambay, just last week, voiced his doubts about it (HERE).

Well, she did confirm to me that she would be returning in the role. Most likely. Practically 90% sure. And she nodded a lot too.

I can't say, and neither could she say that it's definitely a done deal, and that the contracts have all been signed, with all the "i"s dotted and the "t"s crossed.

She told me that are a few details that are still being negotiated which she couldn't get into. But since she did tell me that the film starts shooting in April, it's highly unlikely that talks are going to suddenly and horribly fall apart at this point, and the producers have to scramble to find a replacement at the very last minute. 

Of course, it's very possible that something could happen and that she won't be in it at all. But that's not a possibility that I got from her.

And please indulge me to say that, though this is actually the second time I've met her in person, I still have to say that she is just drop dead gorjez

Sorry folks I just had to say that.

    I think that Halle is a great Storm!!!!! I have to disagree with people who don't think she was right for the role, I think she fits the roles just fine!!!!! And I can't wait for the next movie!!!!!

    I think Halle is the perfect Storm, and unlike everyone else... I don't think Angela Basset would've made a good storm. I don't think she would have clicked with the other characters.

    This is sad Halle Berry is a terrible storm I always felt that Angela Bassett would be a better choice. Although, I heard a rumour that Angela actually turned down the role of Storm and then Halle Berry got the offer. If this is true I guess Halle really did seize her opportunity.

    *falls to the ground, sobbing*

    I've been saying the longest Angela basset would make the perfect storm. She doesn't look old in the face and has the body and voice Halle is pretty but that role isn't right for her the storm from comics is really old but doesn't look It

    Bryan Singer also confirm the name of the French actors Omar Sy.

  • jusme | March 2, 2013 1:43 PMReply

    NO!!!! Halle was never right for storm. Why do this to us, AGAIN?! Zoe Saldana, Angela Bassett, hell Jennifer Hudson would make a better Storm at this point. JUST.NOT.HALLE!

  • getthesenets | March 1, 2013 11:54 PMReply

    it won't ever happen but the woman from Besouro, Jessica Barbosa, would be a great Storm

    Halle was never really a good fit for the role

    most perfect people to ever play the roles though

    Yul Brynner-professor x
    Michael Ironside-wolverine
    Dolph Lungren-Collosus
    Eric Bogosian-nightcrawler

    woman they got to play phoenix/dark phoenix was perfect


    shame that Halle became Storm, they could have gone in another the time N'bushe Wright would have been a better choice but Halle has the name and the international appeal

    AngelaBassett is too old to play Storm.. c'mon now..

  • Turk | March 1, 2013 6:50 PMReply

    Halle is beautiful, she has the body, respect, profile, and her acting is fine for the X-men Franchise. The central characters of the X-men series will sell the movie and unfortunately Storm isn't one of them. It doesn't matter if Halle Berry or Huckle Berry gets the role the movie will be a blockbuster and the studios are fully aware of this fact. DEAD @ anyone thinking they would give the role to Angela Bassette who I love but please. Zoe is overused and I don't see her fitting the role at all. Who else with a high profile is left? Congrats Halle. lol

  • Beanie Steinberg | March 1, 2013 6:47 PMReply

    Angela Bassett! For the love of God! Angela Bassett is Storm personified and this is the perfect project for her to debut. Halle step down. You're alot of things but Storm isn't one of them.

  • Summon the Mighty Hurricane | March 1, 2013 5:44 PMReply

    ZOE SALDANA Would be a perfect Storm! No More Halle bring in Zoe! She has Storm's exotic look, is tougher, and can pull off the accent better. Halle is too soft and has weakened Storm.
    ZOE =Storm

  • Deborah | March 1, 2013 2:53 PMReply

    Angela Bassett! It's not to late to right an egregious wrong! She's still beautiful, formidable and could make Storm come alive on the big screen. Make this happen.

  • Tyty | March 1, 2013 12:59 PMReply

    I have a feeling her part will be very small, x-men 1 size at most, but it will help her profile to be in a box- office smash, something she hasn't been in since the last X-men movie in 2006 (poor Clou d Atlas, i loved you). But glad to see her none the less, I enjoyed her performance in x2 and 3

  • Melissaenafrique | March 1, 2013 9:27 AMReply

    OMG noooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol. <<< Comic book fans all over. Storm requires a TALL, goodlooking, smoothly brownskinned woman who can pull off either a Kenyan or British accent. Someone who looks like Iman, an African goddess. Halle Berry is none of the above. She is a biracial beauty queen under 6ft.

  • Judge Fredd | March 3, 2013 12:03 AM

    Yeah, and Wolverine was short. Your point?

  • Melissaenafrique | March 1, 2013 9:28 AM

    The director must hate Storm. lol

  • Aaron | March 1, 2013 8:14 AMReply

    I still say Angela Bassett should've played Storm since the first film but good for Halle though.

  • Lynn | March 1, 2013 1:41 PM

    I definitely agree with both Aaron and Sweeta. Storm has "Angela" written all over it.

  • Sweeta | March 1, 2013 9:14 AM

    Who agrees with Aaron? (Raises hand)
    Though I do think AB can be heavy-handed sometimes (let's look at what she's been given, though), I always thought the role of Storm demanded an actress with a certain amount of gravitas, which I still feel HB lacks (even after all these years). Just my opinion...

  • Drigo | March 1, 2013 7:47 AMReply

    Zoe Saldana? Seriously…..Bitch, please. Storm is supposed to be dead gorgeous in the comics, and Zoe is hideous. Berry was a good choice. Can't wait to see her ripping sentinels apart.

  • ALM | February 28, 2013 11:41 PMReply

    Ooooh, I think Sergio has a crush. ;)

  • CC | March 1, 2013 12:24 AM

    Sergio, I second that emotion. This guy wouldn't un-friend her. I'd try to make somebody jealous.

  • sergio | March 1, 2013 12:11 AM

    What guy doesn't?

  • Kris | February 28, 2013 10:54 PMReply

    I was never convinced of Berry as Storm. She is not regal enough and doesn't display the same composure we are used to in Storm. I'd rather someone replace Berry for the role. Zoe Saldana would be perfect! Now let's get Cyclops back in this film!

  • CaliphM | February 28, 2013 10:05 PMReply

    Your Comment This is good news. Considering the comic storyline, Storm definitely should be in this film and it makes sense that Halle would return to reprise the role.

  • Akim | February 28, 2013 9:46 PMReply

    I'm sooooooo happy that she will be back as Storm! I was getting kinda worried there.

  • Roberto | March 1, 2013 12:54 AM

    YAY!!!! Glad to see Halle back, didnt think it was gonna happen...
