Halle Berry happy to be back for 'X-Men' sequel

Last week, director Bryan Singer hinted that Halle Berry could reprise her role as Storm in his upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and the Oscar-winning actress has since confirmed the news to CNN.

"I'm going to be there. I don't know how [much] of the old cast will be there, but I think we're pretty official," Berry said Saturday.

"I loved her and the people love Storm ... so I'm happy to come back," she continued. "And I love working with Hugh Jackman [who plays Wolverine]. Bryan Singer is back directing ... so it'll be good. Ian McKellen is back and Patrick Stewart is back, so it's good."

Singer officially announced Berry's return along with the addition of another new cast member, Omar Sy, on Twitter.

"Couldn't be more excited that #HalleBerry has joined the cast of #XMen #DaysofFuturePast. Hopefully she can improve the weather in Montreal," the director posted Monday, two days after he posted that he's "thrilled to welcome the brilliant #OmarSy from the amazing film #TheIntouchables to the cast."

    Halle Berry is only good at playing the victim. Ororo has a very strong personality not the wimpy run-to-the-professor the moment someone turns to goo type. "What happens to a toad that gets hit by lightning?..." Dear God, one of the worst movie lines in cinematic history.

    I like Halle, but HATE her as Storm! Dang! Get someone else to play that part, and don't make them soooo wimpy! They can't find an African actress to play her???? I hate the movie X-Men with a passion just because of the Storm foul-up. Just reboot the whole darn thing!

      hopefull he will consult with John Fraveau on what it takes to make a good Marvel Superhero Movie. Not for nothing if it was up to me all Marvel based movies should be directed by either John Fraveau, or Matthew Vaughn. they are the only ones who seem to know what they are doing.

    ok so it is nice to see that a good portion of the original cast is back, please do not re-hire the people who wrote X-Men 2 ,X-men 3, wolverine, Fantastic 4 both the original and the rise of the silver surfer..... they were all absolutely Horrible!!!!!!!!! As for X-men: days of future past, i hope it is a good as or almost as good as X-men First Class. ( even with the deviations from the real comics, it was still a good movie) but i am having trouble understanding how they are going to incorporate the 2 franchises given that Alex summers is the younger brother to scott summers, yet some how Alex was born sometime in the 1950, and scott is a young 20 something in the 21st century. also in Wolverine there was a young scott summers and a young Emma Frost being held captive at 3 mile island. How is Emma a teen ager there and yet is an adult in Days of Futures Past, that should be good to see how they explain that.

    It seems like its going to have so many people in it that no one character will really get to shine. There is such a thing as too large of a cast. I'll still go see it though.

      The Avengers also had five full movies' worth of buildup before it was released. While we have had other X-Films, the continuity between them has been almost irrevocably messed up that there's no way this will even be close to another "Avengers".

      you are 100% correct. they totally fudged up the X-men Movies. there are to many inconsistencies between the movies for it to be good at all. if they are smart they would not pick up with the old movies, but in stead the original x-men trilogy should be boxed and put on a shelf somewhere and forgotten (first one was good the other two were total poop). they could still use some of the old cast, but they should go about it like the first trilogy never happened, also put Wolverine in that mix ( i cant tell you how much that movie Bothered the Ever Living S@*# out of me, if it wasnt for the Fantastic 4 movies, this would be at the top of the worst marvel movie adaptations for a comic book character)

    I'm a Halle Berry fan, but I HATE how she plays Storm...very weak and timid, unlike the African Mutant Goddess that she is!!!! I'm not sure if it's her or the directing, but I hope they make Storm (and all the women) a lot truer to their characters.

      i never thought of Iman for the part, from her pictures it looks like she does fit the bill for Ororo. but i am not sure as to how good of an actress she is.

      i can deal with forge, would help explain how beast built the X-men laboratory and such. But Bishop, i hope not. i can see it now, thought out the movie just like in the comics, Bishop " we need to change the past to so that i can save my Future"... "but what about my future".... "this is not how it is in the future"...." i have to save my future".... "you abandoned us in the future" .... in evey single comic that i have of the X-men that features Bishop, these lines or some slight variation get printed every time. he is Such and Annoying Character.
