Default Re: Actors from original trilogy on First Class sequel with Days of Future Past

Storm's feet didn't leave the ground in X2 and all she did was float up an elevator shaft in X1. All Halle needed to do was look at any comic Storm was in and the character would be flying.

There were actually moments in X2 when Storm could fly (when the team enter the base we see a bit of wind and soldiers looking confused) but for reasons (probably budget) that didn't happen. Storm did have two big 'saving the day' moments in X2 but all Halle had to do was stare and let the VFX do the rest in post. Storm never had an arc or storyline in Singer's film, she was just there, and I can't imagine what Storm would have done if Halle's profile wasn't raised between X1 and X2.

Flight is a big part of Storm's character and I can see why Halle was annoyed that she didn't get to do it. Halle obviously got her wish in X3 because she flies on a number of occasions. The flight in X-Men: First Class showed flying technology has improved so if Storm is in DOFP we'll hopefully see some nice flight scenes.
