Sometimes I wish Matthew Vaughn was still directing this. His X3 had Storm in a prominent position and was much better written
I dunno if it'd be soley to give Wolverine more screen time.
Honestly? I just think Bryan Singer has a serious fondness for Wolverine, Xavier and Magneto. They are his favorites and they've been given the most generous character development, back stories and care in this franchise. Each and every X-Men film has revolved 100% around them and their relationships with eachother.
Adding Storm may complicate things for him as a director--especially if she's to maintain the same leadership role X3 gave her. I doubt Bryan is interested in preserving that.
