Singer really struck a goldmine with his casting choices for Charles and Erik. In fact to be honest I think he's struck a goldmine with all the actors he cast in the main roles, if he just wrote the character's well and directed them to be more like their comic counterparts then we would all be as giddy to see them onscreen as we are to see Ian. Even, arguably, the weakest link in the cast, Halle Berry has the potential to deliver the qualities that Storm needs and look at films like Cloud Atlas to see her at her best in recent times. She can definitely play Storm the way we want, so can Anna, Shawn, Ellen etc. Just give them their dues Singer.
You forgot one of my favorites "Mr Stryker, funny we keep running into each other, mark my words it will never happen again".
