Storm is a Marvel Royalty. So for the sake of diversity alone I'd expect Halle to continue being featured prevalently. She is an Academy Award winner who's seen a significant rise in her career lately.
Yes, Jennifer Lawrence is also an Oscar winner, but she is not as accomplished as Halle who has over 20-plus years on her in consistent Hollywood longevity. These two women will get the most face-time. It'll be interesting with Jennifer though: she won't be as recognizable in blue make-up to audiences.
By "significant rise in her career lately" did you mean The Call? In a sea of misfires and direct-to-home video releases (spanning from Movie 43, Cloud Atlas, Perfect Stranger, New Year's Eve. Yes I had to imdb this
), I wouldn't call,"The Call" "a significant rise in her career?."
