Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion)
I think that when Halle first got cast for Storm in 1999, she was just looking at it as another 'job'. She knew nothing about the greatness of Storm. Bryan forbid her (and everyone else) from even looking up the comics. So I believe she was blindsided after the fact when fans all over the world started ripping on her portrayal. In the years since, Halle has DEFINITELY figured out how popular and powerful Storm is--and how much the character means to millions of people.
It's been a learning curve...and I wouldn't be surprised if Bryan hasn't learned a few things as well.
