Halle Berry X Men Rumor Control


Last week there were rumors that the majority of Halle Berry's scenes from the new X-Men movie had ended up on the cutting room floor, leaving what amounted to barely a cameo from her character Storm.

X-Men director Bryan Singer shuts down the rumors...

After it was reported that Halle Berry had been all but cut from X-Men: Days Of Future Past and that producers were waiting until the film's release to tell her, Show Biz Spy reached out to director Bryan Singer who confirms the rumors are not true.

Cut her out completely because she never fit that role nor did it any justice. I always said Angela Bassett would have been perfect for it but I digress, Halle is their IT girl....

Lol!!! She looks like Granny Storm!
They should rename her Drizzle.

You can always count on good 'ol Halle when they need a token black girl.

Halle is starting to age and it all in her eyes...the white side of her is kicking in...

That looks nothing like a promo pic... It looks like a gag pic you take at Great Adventure.

"Cut her out completely because she never fit that role nor did it any justice..."

THANK YOU!!! I know she's Hollyweird's #1 token, but Storm should've been recast after the first X-Men movie. She doesn't fit the character, and she definitely doesn't have the acting chops to make you overlook or forgive the fact that she was miscast.

I don't know if the studio put out the rumors as a way of drawing more attention to the film. I just wish Halle would hurry up and hit the big 5-0 so that Hollyweird will finally put her out to pasture. That sounds mean, I know, and it's not her fault that Hollyweird has a "one is enough" mentality when it comes to non-White A-list talent, but still, I'm just sick of her mediocre, overhyped ass being considered the only non-White option for mainstream films. (Same goes for her sister in tokenism, Zoe Saldana.)

@10:31, feel me? You are on point when you say she doesn't have the acting chops. That alone has to be the statement of the year. I think they forget some of us actually liked the X-Men comics and know exactly how Storm was portrayed and this has never sat well with true fans of the comic books.

LMAO@put her out to pasture. Very true indeed....not mean at all

Bee Gee said...

I agree @ Magick. When her scenes come up it always feel like movie filler - perfect time to go get some popcorn or hit the bathroom. Boring as hell..

Tippie Toes said...

Maybe Halle should break from the movie scene a bit so that folks will miss her.

Magick said...

@Bee Gee, indeed man. She has lasted this long based on her looks and well, I heard the casting couch too...

Nothing at all extraordinary about Halle. Another person we could see less of....

@9:46 my mum and I were had a similar conversation this morning and she mentioned that Halle hasn't been the same since she played cat women she said her eyes looked rather cold . My mum doesn't know alot about television (neither does she care) but that was an interesting observation.

I don't think it really matters to Halle because the check has already ben cashed.

@ 8:40 I agree on Angela Bassett or Lupita Nyongo would be a kick ass storm.

@12:28pm - Yeah. Make that money, I guess. She'll need it to support both Gabe and now Oliver.

Anonymous said...

Halle must not of heard of pre-nups. If she has to pay Oliver, like she's paying Gabe, that's all on her. When you fall in "love" with someone who's pay scale isn't close to yours, and you have a baby with that person too, why shouldn't they get some money to make sure that your child is living the kind of lifestyle with you that she/he is at home? To me, it doesn't matter that Gabe are Oliver are men. If she didn't want to pay, she should have gotten pre-nups. Maybe next time she will. And yeah, there will be a next time.

Her eyes do look like something is wrong with her. Maybe it's her diabetes or having a baby at 46, but she looks really, really exhausted. I hope that there is nothing serious going on with her. She is a timeless beauty.

Bee Gee said...

@ 1:34pm - Speak on it

Anonymous said...

Like he was really going to confirm it and say 'yes' when he was put on the spot like that.

I hope the rumor is true, because she SUX as Storm. Always has, always will.

You jealous Bitches need to get a life and stop hating on Halle!!! Storm, You Go Girrrrl!!!

That white hair just really shows how rapidly she has aged. Why is she looking like Granny Berry in that picture??? A sexy grandma????

Halle, girl, JUST RETIRE! And go take care of those babies from two different daddies!

@12:27

That film probably made her very bitter. That and that bootleg, Welfare-version of "Jaws" film. She has a new film "Alice and Frankie" coming out but I am not even interested in seeing that film. I will wait until it comes out on TV.

Catwoman was so horrible and low budget that it embarrassed me. Anyway who saw it had to feel sorry for her.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Storm is the only black female super hero in the comic books. With having said that, Halle Berry completely ruined the character. X-Men was one of Halle Berry's worse performances. I don't even think she read the Storm comic books. The woman who voiced Storm in the X-Men cartoons did a better job than Halle Berry.
One more thing, there is an online petition going around asking people to cast Lupita Nyong'o as Storm. Just FYI.

Anonymous said...

She's desperate for roles. The X-Men was a Wolverine's showcase which is why he had his own movie spin off.
Even after she won the Oscar, she should have never came back to Storm. She's desperate now roles . Her movies are flopping so she had to do X-men, ain't no one calling. Excepts a BAPs sequel.

Completely agree about Angela. I also was a firm believer she would have been awesome. From the cartoons I recall storm was not only dark skinned, but she had a strong and commanding voice. She was a BAWSE. Halle fucked it up good and proper.

@nba word ?
I think Lupita would be a badass super -heroine.

lmao @ 3:51 WellDamn

Anonymous said...

On another note if they don't want to include us in their comics FUCK THEM!!!!! We are the real super heroes anyway . Why do you think we dominate every sports on this planet?
Why do you think thy are threatened by us and they try to keep us in mental and emotional bondage?
I would like to get my hands on Erika Alexandra's(Maxine Shaw) comic book and if anyone can recommend any other talented black artist.

Females love comics too

Magick said...

@4:22, exactly!! She was nowhere near as soft as Halle played her and I don't recall her getting her ass whipped like they portray her in the movie. She commanded respect as an African Goddess. Every single X-Men movie, Halle getting the shit beat out of her and tossed all over the damn place

It's sickening...

Anonymous said...

@5:25
Looked like Storm/Halle was just in the movie to get tossed around in the last one. The director used special camera angles & all types of new technology to show her getting beatdown.

Magick said...

@5:35, that is exactly my point. First she got beatdown in the house before Professor X got killed and then that puerto rican chick was throwing her all over the place in the final showdown.

Hell, I was kinda embarrassed FOR her when I was watching that....

For those of you that don't know, comic book character Storm is married to Black Panther. Don't count on Fox or Disney to use the Black Panther character in the movies. Yes Black Panther is an Avenger.

If Lupita ain't gonna be chosen for Storm, then they should choose Naomie Harris! She has experience with action/adventure films! I love her!

They can have a fuckin' ANT MAN movie, but not a Black Panther film! *shakes head* Not surprised, but still, it's like "REALLY?"

^^Oh, and topic: Halle Berry SUCKS as Storm! One of the WORST casting decisions in Hollywood history!

Because the Jews that own the major leagues wanted to condition negroes to be nothing but sports entertainers.

Anonymous said...

she hasn't been in any of these movies Hahaha

Anonymous said...

8:38You're missing my point. Not all of us inspire to be athletes / entertainers ,however the ones who are conquer those areas .

Please don't start an argument just for the sake of arguing.

WTF??!!!!!! said...

Halle made watching storm, a boring and unenjoyable experience. She has no range as an actress and I can't believe they gave her an oscar for screwing billy bob in that harrible movie. The only thing I ever liked her in was 'Boomerang' and w/all the plastic surgery and skin bleaching she don't look nothing like that anymore. Her best talent is crying on cue. She does it so well, that you actually feel sorry for her. OMG @ catwoman. hated it!
