First Rogue, now Storm.

Halle Berry scenes cut from movie?


So they manage to get a load of the actors from the original trilogy back, and now they're barely even using them?

^ Which doesn't keep them from using them extensively in the marketing materials, apparently.

Where's a facepalm smiley when we need one?

Come on, what is up with these movie people (not the actors, but the ones working on the film)? I was looking forward to seeing both of these characters.

Well the report did say her role was cut down. Not cut completely like Rogue's was.

I suppose this shows that her role isn't really important to the movie, but it still stings a bit, since it would have been great seeing Storm back in action. Plus if I recall her role was a bit larger in the comic.

I wouldn't trust the source, although given the reshoots and re-structuring of the movie I wouldn't be surprised. From what I've heard, the original trilogy actors never had a huge part anyway.

I was not a fan of First Class. I found most of the new characters incredibly dull. The main reason I was kind of excited for DOFP was that they were bringing back some of the original X-Men. News that they are continuing to cut those roles from the movie only makes me want to see it less and less.

The original cast will still be there.

The article doesn't outright say Storm has been cut entirely from the movie... just that her screen-time has been reduced. The only character that has been confirmed to have been cut from the movie is Rogue.

However, from what I've been hearing this will be the original cast's swansong. According to speculation and rumors, the next X-Men movie - X-Men: Apocalypse - will mainly feature the First Class cast.

And that bums me out. I grew up on the 90s FOX cartoon, so to me, the X-Men is Cyclops, Jean, Storm, Wolverine, Rogue, etc. I was willing to give the new characters a chance with "First Class," but I left that movie incredibly disappointed.

^Cyclops and Jean were never going to be in this movie, though. Wolverine is, at least.

The X-Men has just a massive history that really can't be condensed with statements like "The X-Men Is." To me, the X-Men is about the duality and juxtapositions between Professor Xavier and Magneto's ideals. Therefore First Class was perfect to me.

Details on X-MEN APOCALYPSE from Bryan Singer. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/66552

We’re going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants – the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it’ll be a contemporary movie – well, it’ll take place in the ’80s…The ’80s is a period now – it’s hard for me to believe that!
Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle… I don’t want to get too specific, but we’ll introduce familiar characters in a younger time. That’ll be fun to show the audience. I call these movies in-between-quels. It’s a mind-fuck sometimes in terms of where things fall in the timeline!
I love that its taking place in the 80s! Plus seeing younger versions of the main characters. Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm most likely.

They're getting to the tail-end of the disco era, but I still want to see Dazzler in full stage regalia!

Isn't this old news? I'm pretty certain that they said when they were filming that because of Berry's pregnancy, a lot of Storm's scenes would have to be cut back.

I was hoping they had got around that in the reshoots.

I'm ok if they decide to re-cast after the third one but I am rather anti-reboot. There are a lot of good X-stories out there that can be told without a reboot.
