X-MEN actress Halle Berry sounds almost confident that she will return as Storm in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, telling Indie Wire that negotiations are taking place and that she’s “90% sure” of her joining Bryan Singer’s juggernaut film. Nothing is official until a contract is signed, but this definitely supports Singer’s quote yesterday, where he said “it depends on how it works out. I loved working with Halle, so all I can say is we’ll see what happens.”
Berry would join fellow original trilogy actors Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore, along with X-MEN: FIRST CLASS actors James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.
Storm had a somewhat prominent role in the original comic book arc, where she appeared in both timelines, more interestingly the future timeline where she battled for her life against Sentinels.
Filming begins this April in Montreal for a July 18, 2014 release.
