X-Men: Days of Future Past Wants Halle Berry and James Marsden

Movie Web

The 20th Century Fox superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past is turning into an X-Men reunion, with Bryan Singer set to direct and Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen already confirmed to return along with Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman.

Today, we have an intriguing report that X-Men stars Halle Berry (Storm) and James Marsden (Cyclops) are also being sought to return for this sequel to last year's X-Men: First Class. (Cinema, Halle Berry, James Marsden, X-Men: Days of Future Past)

I like the idea of having the same people return in those roles. It keeps some form of continuity.

I don't mind Marsden returning as Cyclops as long as they make him more true to the comics this time around, I mean he's supossed to be the leader of the X-Men not Wolverine. Give him the classic suit and make him more of a leader and his return will be welcome by me, Halle Berry as Storm not so much.

Why not Halle Berry?

Well I've read on other movie sites that she was 'difficult' to work on the X-Men movies, refusing to do stunt work, make-up, attitude.. the white eyes of Storm are CGI.

I really don't have a problem with Berry, it's just her character doesn't have much to do in these X-Men movies, all the focus is Wolverine.

Still, this new X-Men surely can't be any worse that X3 can it?

Honestly in my opinion she doesn't fit the character of Storm at all, and I could see a lot more better suited actresses in the part (Kerry Washington, Naomie Harris, and Zoe Saldana).
Crazay  +   1037d ago
Funny you mentioned Zoe Saldana because I was thinking she could fill the shoes for that role too when you mentioned you weren't a fan of Halle. The problem with that is these characters will be in the future and they need to be older and more mature looking Storm included. Unfortunately Zoe looks far too young for that.

Never really liked Halle Berry as Storm. I could see Sanaa Lathan as a better Storm. Much better actress.

I'd love to see Marsden come back. He really got the shaft in The Last Stand, so it'd be great to see him as Cyclops again.
Crazay  +   1037d ago
If memory serves that was partially his own doing.
darklordzor  +   1034d ago
True...but I still thought he deserved better.

If they could get the original people then this could be a hit movie, i hope it's not just a fall 1 minute cameo either.

I thought they were trying to break away from those movies and create something new?

I would honestly say I'd prefer that with a few of the characters. Cyclops was a wimp and not a leader at all, which made Wolverine all the more better. To be entirely honest the only ones I really care for were Wolverine, Dr. X, and Beast.

Damn whats the budget looking like again?
TheCritic28  +   1037d ago
This would be great; anything to move away from his awful death in X3.

halle berry and james marsden were ok as storm and cyclops respectively in the first two movies but unlike patrick stewart and ian mckellen, their performance is a bit more forgettable and repalcable. their could be a lot more up and coming actors that can portray superhero characters more effectively.
