There's no need to rely on Berry for buzz with the soon to be 2-time Oscar nominated Jennifer Lawrence in the cast (she's basically a lock for her second Oscar nom and many say win for Silver Linings Playbook). By the time DOFP is released, Lawrence will be one of the biggest female stars in Hollywood. No real reason to have B-list Berry distract from an A-list star. Bring back some of the cheaper stars to fill out the ensemble.

Plus, if Bryan Singer harbors any grudges against Berry he could probably just shut her out of the picture without the studio interfering due to Lawrence's presence.

That may be, but at some point we have to see Storm again in this franchise.

Storm belongs in DoFP, but she isn't a make-or-break character and Halle isn't a make-or-break actress for the franchise. It wouldn't bother me if we saw Storm's name on a tombstone, as long as the film was good.

But at most, all they'd need from Storm in DoFP would be a bit of action zapping Sentinels and then a death scene (like in the comics). It wouldn't be more than 5 minutes of the film at most.

As for Lawrence, she is not a household name and most ordinary folk wouldn't have a clue who she was. I'd say that won't change for a long time. Even a second Oscar win won't make her a household name, it'll just raise her profile and status.

I know. I was being sarcastic. Re-read your original post.

Also he already showed it in the first film.

Signing Halle for 5 minutes of screen time would be silly.

You're probably right. So it would be a bigger role, or to omit the character altogether (or even recast).

I don't like it that your screen name is virtually mine in reverse, it seems creepy!

Halle Berry is a star much bigger than Miss Lawrence.

A star who hasn't had a hit in 6 years, which is what I hope will at least partially incentivize her to return to do Days of Future Past. My only concern is that she'll play the "there's not enough for me to do" card. Though, I hope that's not the case.

Meanwhile, Lawrence was propelled onto the A list overnight by starring in one of this years highest grossing films, and is looking at her SECOND Oscar nomination in the months ahead.

I'm really curious to see what they're going to do with McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence, and Hoult.

Dude, give it up... every single post you've made on here seems to be about how much better the original cast is vs the new cast which is kinda out of place in the First Class forum. Whether you like it or not, the fact of the matter is that Jen Lawrence is a much hotter commodity than Halle Berry at the moment. That doesn't discount either woman's acting ability. Hollywood is pretty fickle and temporary with their sweethearts and right now Jennifer Lawrence is popular with both the Oscar crowds AND the teenage crowds. Cloud Atlas and is the first thing Berry's done since X-Men 3 that's gotten any attention, and people have a pretty short term memory. She's a beautiful, talented woman. She's just not a big deal right now.

I heard rumors Berry initially planned not to return to X-Men (3 I think) because she wanted more money. As someone pointed out above, she is not worth the money she might demand for a brief appearance. A backshot of a woman in a white wig fighting a sentinel, or an image of a gravestone with the name Storm engraved on it is much easier than negotiating an unreasonable fee for a cameo.

Halle Berry probably has a great agent that knows what's best for her, though. And knows that her career needs a kick start, and putting her back in the white wig is just what can do that for her.

Mark Millar said that in expanding the X-universe, you can't do that without the crown jewels.

That to me spells Logan, Storm, Scott and Jean. Weather they all return in DoFP, or just somewhere down the line, it's going to happen.

The point is during that time she hasn't even made a passing comment or even hinted at returning to X-Men or even acknowledging the project.
I've watched a bunch of interviews of Halle promoting Cloud Atlas and I didn't see anyone asking her about X-Men: Days of Future Past. In one interview she was asked who'd she'd play if she could portray multiple characters in a previous film (like she does in Cloud Atlas), and she said she'd play "all the X-Men", but that's it.

Even if she was asked we'd probably get a vague answer like Famke gave a few weeks ago. Given how vocal she was about X-Men 4 I think she'd be up for it, and Halle would be wise to play Storm again, even if it's a smaller role than X2 and X3.

If Bryan Singer wants to make it so X3 essentially "doesn't matter" I'd rather he just make a sequel that returns to the status quo of X1 or X2 within the first ten minutes due to either the villain or even the Phoenix.

Ughhh I hope not. The possibility of Henry Jackman returning is honestly one of the last remaining hopes I have for this movie. Take that away and I'd just be seeing the movie for Fassbender and McAvoy, which I could do much more painlessly with one of their dozen films coming out next year. I can't understate how much I do not like Ottman as a composer.

And as for the costume designer, I just hope she keeps the bright colors for the past-verse costumes, those black uniforms in X-Men 1 and 2 were almost as bland as the soundtracks.

Oh Vaughn why oh why did you have to leave. Your absence is really going to screw up everything.

Did Logan even were his suit in the comics? They probably wont even need suits in the Sentinel run future. I have no problem with them wearing black in that time if they do, just hope the suits look more inspired. I liked your idea of Prometheus type suits with hints of color.

The team in the past has been established those characters wear Yellow and blue. That would be kinda lame to change that. And a bad move imo. People seemed to react well to it.

You don't have to see it you know. Plenty of other superhero flicks out there that have what your looking for.

The difference is that First Class is by far my favorite superhero movie, so I was really excited about its sequel. But with every news tidbit that comes up about DOFP, it seems like they're slowly taking everything that made FC so fantastic and ripping it up. I keep coming here in search of positive news about the sequel and instead it just keeps getting worse. I'm trying to be open minded, really I am, but the ONLY two "conditions" I had about this movie, literally the only things they needed to do to make me see the movie a dozen times in theatres no matter how terrible it is, seem unlikely to happen:

1) Henry Jackman does the score again
2) The movie does not turn into Wolverinefest 2014, nor does it spend more than 15% of its runtime on future goingson with the old cast.

I didn't think these were unreasonable things to hope for. But then I also didn't think it was unreasonable to hope for a First Class sequel that didn't try to become The Next Avengers Thing.
