I'm pretty sure I read an issue Wizard Magazine where it's mentioned Angela Bassett was never asked (and hence never turned down the role of Storm). This was a few years after the films had come out.

I also agree with your point about Halle, Famke, hugh, Ian, Patrick being the faces of the X-Men trilogy. Can't have a proper x-men reunion if Zoe saldana who is significantly younger than the rest of the cast and would probably stick out like a sore thumb. They have more to gain with including Halle than recasting her.
This I agree with.
