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

Recasting future Storm also defeats one of the main selling points of Days of Future Past. It's supposed to be original cast meets new cast, and dropping new folks in would ruin that. This isn't a Hulk situation, Halle has played Storm for 3 movies and it would be a noticeable recast. Halle, along with Jackman, McKellen, Stewart and Janssen, were the faces of the original trilogy. Not having them in DOFP would make it less eventful.

Halle for future Storm or no one. Cast a younger Storm for the 70s if the story calls for it.
I completely agree with you! Plus Halle Berry was one of the major stars of the original trilogy, her name was always up there next to Hugh Jackman. She's definitely memorable as Storm.
