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

The original 'X-Men' stars have not yet been confirmed to join Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Ian McKellan in this superhero sequel.

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.

It isn't clear if 20th Century Fox has issued formal offers to the actors, or any of the other X-Men stars. It isn't known if others such as Anna Paquin (Rogue) are being sought to reprise their roles, but there is said to be a lot of "willingness to participate" because of director Bryan Singer returning to the helm. The X-Men stars will reportedly appear in scenes that show a dystopic, alternate future, with Kitty Pryde playing a major role in the action.

Sumela Kay played the character in 2000's X-Men, with Katie Stuart assuming the role in X2: X-Men United. Ellen Page, the most well-known of the three actors, took on the part in X-Men: The Last Stand, with the character playing a key part in that film. It is not know at this point if any of these three actors will return. In the animated X-Men series from the 90s, their adaptation of X-Men: Days of Future Past traded Kitty Pryde for the character Bishop. We have no word on how Bryan Singer plans to change or utilize Kitty's role in the storyline.

Bryan Singer is directing from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg, with Matthew Vaughn still attached as a producer, despite dropping out as the director.

X-Men: Days of Future Past was released May 23rd, 2014 and stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.

    Rod Milton: Storm was not a super dark skinned toned woman. In a the majority of comics she is depicted as being an African American but having a light brown skin tone like Miss Berry... with white hair and blue eyes. Yes I agree she should have the accent but it wasn't Halle that made that go away it was the writers and director.
    This movie needs Storm, and that means Halle Berry. Storm was a big part of D.O.F.P in the comics a needs to have a good part in the movie period.

    So, who is going to be the actress who plays Rachel? She is a relatively vital character, seeing as she is the one who sent the future Kitty to occupy the young Kitty's body.

    @Rod-Milton If you mean original first Xmen movie, ok, but she was not one of the original Xmen. It was Cyclops, Jean, Beast, Angel, & Iceman. Storm was a second generation Xmen like wolverine, havoc, rogue, nightcrawler and I think banshee too.

    @zeus I believe you have it backwards, Cyclops is older than Havok. Check the comics.

    They need to follow the story and characters as it was in the comics, not the cartoon. I hope they don't ruin this storyline.

    Cyclops is easily my second favorite X-Man. As for Storm... it's a meh unless they can seriously make it work.

    Also, Cyclopse is dead in that future. Sorry...it looks like the X Men CAN exist without him.

    @Rod-Milton sorry but Nightcrawler showed up in the same issue as Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Thunderbird, Banshee and Sunfire. They were led by Cyclopse before he left to form X Factor.

    I have no issue with this tho I do agree that Cyclops is a xh*** but that's why he's so f*****

    In Singer I trust

    I am totally cool if Singer retcons Cyclops back to life. We didn't technically see him die, and it was a cheap sucker's death anyway. I really hope they bring back Kitty though. Page was great in that role.

    @RodMilton I hear you but you missed my point, im not saying they should use Cyclops, im just saying he was terribly represented in all first films. Havok is his older brother, so i can see why he was in the first class.

    Bringing back the actor and actress for this movie would be like telling someone it's ok to eat a fake wax apple.

    For those saying don't bring back Cyclops and that's he's not that important don't really know much about the X-Men. Cyclops is one of the original X-Men along with Beast, Angel, Ice-Man, and Jean. Wait, and I think Nightcrawler as well. Wolverine and Storm came later, but they've been with the group a long time as a well. X-Men isn't the X-Men without Storm, Cyclops, Wolverine, and Jean. And for people saying too many characters. This movie is essentially dealing with multiple time frames and universes so I can see why they would implement quite a few characters.

    @zeus If this is based off the original X-Men you have to bring Cyclops back. In fact I don't even understand why Havok was in the first film and not Cyclops.

  27. Rod Milton

    HELL NO! WHY HALLE BERRY?? She SUCKS as Storm. Last I checked Storm was a dark skinned woman and is African. So I assume Storm would have an African accent. The best actress to play storm would be someone new. A breakout actress that could play storm in all the future upcoming movies...similar to Daniel Radcliffe as he's known for Harry Potter. I would love for Storm to be in the new X-Men movie...in fact I demand it being she's one of the originals. But DO NOT have Halle Berry playing the role. Keep the descriptions as accurate as possible. Model Iman would be perfect for the role if she could act.

    I'd like them to make a new X-Men movie and pretend X3 never happened. I love the "First Class" movie too but they weren't the first class of X-Men, they were just a random assortment of b-list mutants. And Beast.

    Storm would be great to have in the film but Cyclopse really is not as important.

    There are essentially two storylines occuring in DoFP the future story and the past where the X Men try and prevent that future. If the movie is edited well this could easily be accomplished without having it feel to over populated or convoluted.
