Halle Berry has been rumored to reprise her role as Storm in the next X-Men movie and this weekend she confirmed it would happen.
Halle Berry will join other recently confirmed cast members Peter Dinklage and Omar Sy in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past". James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult will also return from X-Men: First Class, and Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, and Anny Paquin will reprise their roles from the earlier X-Men movies. Halle Berry has been rumored for a while to return, along with James Marsden and Famke Jansen, though they have yet to be confirmed.
Halle hasn't had the best track record with comic book heroines. Her Catwoman movie years ago was a pretty big flop and her version of Storm hasn't been very well received by fans. Given the write script though, I think she could put in a worthy performance. Storm, as a character, has received the short end of the stick in prior X-Men movies and almost treated as an afterthought. Hopefully Singer offers the oscar winning actress better lines than "Do you know what happens to toads when they're hit by lightening?" And God willing, they will give her a mohawk!
