They may bring Halle back for 'star power' and she may do better under another director and writer. We haven't yet had a proper Storm.
Marsden's grief scene at the end of X2 was a bit hammy, yes. And so was Wolverine's grief scene over Xavier's death in X3, with him sobbing next to the empty wheelchair being totally out of character.
