I actually don't think Halle and Singer have any bad blood. They had a disagreement 10 years ago. It hasn't been a decade-long feud as some make it out to be.
Nah. Storm's role could undoubtedly be cut out in an afternoon of rewriting. Her character hasn't actually been a driving force in any of the films: she's just there to deliver a bit of exposition, a couple throwaway lines, and an effect sequence.
