Halle certainly is embroiled in some personal dramas right now. She still has Cloud Atlas to promote in other territories yet (it isn't released in the UK until February 22), so she will have to get her act together.
But it doesn't look like a very good omen for her return to Singer's X-Men. I think it's more and more likely that Storm will end up on a gravestone, and perhaps seen killed off in a flashback/voiceover sequence by a mutant in the future recalling recent events. If so, a stunt double could be used for a quick shot of Storm being shot down by a Sentinel; they probably wouldn't go to the trouble of getting Halle for a cameo death scene!
