Storm did have some importance to the storyline in X2 and X3. I mean in X2 she developed a relationship with Nightcrawler that trusting bond that the two built allowed her to have faith in Kurt and for him to have faith in himself and his powers during the end of X2. And in X3 she grew to become a leader and take over after Professor X. They weren't significant contributions but they were something. And besides they could easily write her in with more relevance to the plot, and it seems that is what they're doing as Halle films from now till late july it must be a big role if Bryan feels the need to keep a pregnant woman on set for that long.

And Mystique is not even a X-Men, why make her the female lead in a X-Men film? because Jennifer Lawrence is popular right now?. Halle Berry should be the female lead of this film. All they need to do is give her a bigger and more meaningful role..
I think you're absolutely right. You're probably the only one on here who actually agrees with me.
