In the end, everytime I watch a movie I have the feeling that the only thing Storm did was walking showing her cute cape and running up and down corridors.

I want her to die in a epic scene because I think she can be more interesting being one of the reasons for the time travel than fighting and doing nothing like in the OT.

Basically these are my thought about Storm. I love to death all the OT characers but I'm unable to care about her.
That's a good thing no? Halle eating for two right now, I wouldn't wanna start to call the woman a cow. She can hit you over with her Honda CR-V and just leave you there.

Trust me your observations and concerns are ones that have been noted by many fans and have disappointed them. I'm holding out hope that Bryan singer, Halle Berry and the rest of the creative team behind the portrayal of Storm see their chance to finally give Storm some development. They could make her the leader in this and give her some good character moments. Just because she has to date had no connections with other characters doesn't mean that they can't establish some. And although this movie may not be able to delve into her origins they could at least make her mention things about her past without going into detail.

Basically I think Storm is far too important as a character and has so much more potential that it would be a waste to have her serve as a plot device for the movie. They should aim to give her and some of the other underdeveloped characters some time to shine and to grow as characters. Fingers crossed Singer and co get it right this time. I'm still holding out hope.

I don't want to disappoint you but is well know that Halle Berry forced Bryan, the writers and Fox to develop her character before she signed her contract for X2 and The Last Stand. What you're saying was made before and it didn't work, and right now Halle doesn't have that power anymore, she not a recent Oscar winner and she doesn't have any major success since The Last Stand. And you have to admit this movie has too many characters, keep developing Storm demands time and in this movie is going to be almost impossible, maybe in X4...

Nowadays she's done filming, she's back to LA and she said she won't film anything else in the next year. I don't think her schedule allowed her to film something more than a battle... which matches my expectation for her character.

Time will tell

She's done filming for now. This movie will be filming until October. The cast will be flying in and out when needed until then.

It would be cool for them to go with "In this issue everyone dies" like in the comics. Everyone but the time-travelers.

I do agree that her relationships with people whom she was close to in the comics are like non-existent and that she is just there, but I wouldnt say she was useless,yea she had some amazing power showings in every movie. Just because she demanded more screentime does it mean they did her character justice case in point x-3, that Callisto garbage was ridiculous. As Nana said im hoping with some years passed both Bryan and Halle have learned some things.

But I think the Brotherhood should be DONE after this movie. I want FOX to move forward with new villains or a new group of villains.

Default Re: Which X-Men Should die or be dead in DOFP?

I'm not sure who I want to die during the movie, most of the X-men probably. But I think Beast, Nightcrawler, Angel and the Brotherhood should all be dead before the movie begins. They sort of represent the 4 types of mutants: accepted by government (Beast), solitary mutant (Nightcrawler), rich/sort of acceptable cause his dad invented the cure (Angel) and anti-human, actively fighting (Brotherhood) because if different stereotypes of mutants were killed before the film, it would, in my mind, show that this is a huge problem for all mutants, not just the Brotherhood or something.

And Storm should probably die during the movie. Excluding Halle Berry's pregnancy, from X3 to DOFP Storm would probably be the main leader of the team. Jean's dead, Scott's dead, Wolvie is running off to Japan, Xavier was dead/is in his twin's body/whatever, Beast is doing government stuff, so Storm is really the only X-man who has been there through all the movies without dying or running off, so for her to die would possibly impact the audience, but would really impact the other living X-men because she is supposed to be the leader.

No Storm should not die,unless she was brought back in either FC or a future movie. Also we dont even know whether Scott or Jean are dead we never saw it so there is a possibility that they may be still alive. Xavier's body is gone but as we all know he is far from dead. If you want the impact you say then they need to take both Wolverine and Storm.

I think she's done filming. Past month I found this interview:

http://www.clarin.com/espectaculos/s...898710130.html

Some bits in english:

http://x-menfilms.com/2013/04/12/hal...role-requires/

In the original interview she speaks a bit more about her pregnancy and working in X-men, she says:
Quote:
La semana que viene empiezo a filmar X-Men: Days of Future Past. Como el embarazo es reciente, todavía puedo hacer casi todo lo que requiere el papel

Voy a poder filmar la película sin problemas y no tenía pensado seguir trabajando hasta principios del año que viene, cuando empiece a promocionar el estreno de X-Men.
Basically she says she will be able to do almost everything her part requires because she's going to film in the early stages of her pregnancy. And she also points she won't go back to work until next year. The fact the she's back in LA and she's starting to look heavily pregnant makes me think is highly possible she's done filming.

Nowadays, if Storm or other characters die, they'll probably bring back to life for another movie.

Halle could have shot all here scenes (that she can do) while she was up in Montreal for a week or so. Her double will be doing the stunts, but they could still need her for 'above the waist' shots or shoot scenes post-pregnancy.

Quote:
Berry insists that she “can still do almost everything the role requires,” saying “I’ll be able to shoot the film without problems and [afterwards] I don’t plan to continue working until early next year.”
Halle won't work on anything else until next year, but she could still be working on X-Men in the near future.

Just recently her daughter a passport photo taken, and the article suggests it's because Halle is going to Canda and will be taking Nahla with her (she didn't take her during the previous set of shooting):

I wouldn't mind if their death scenes are executed well but they have to be careful.

One of the disappointing things about X3 is how the major faces from the 1st two movies weren't included in the climax of the movie. Prof X and Cyclops were dead. Mystique and Rogue lost their power.

They have to be careful on choosing who should die or leave especially in the first hour of the movie. If they killed a new character w/c people don't really care about like Warpath, it would be okay. But kill Storm or Wolverine or even Rogue in the first hour of the movie, I don't think people would be very happy with that, even if they will get resurrected later on.

Wolverine.

His death from a failed fastball special is what made the comic shocking. I remember putting it down, and going, "Holy ****! Holy ****!" Considering such a large cast has been assembled, I hope that a lot of them bite the dust in the future scenario, offscreen or onscreen, to create the sense of despair that arises when reading the comic.

Any cast members from the first three movies should either be implie or confirmed as dead from the get-go. After that, with the exception of Kitty, who goes back in time, the "future" scenes should basically look like the beginning of a Final Destination movie, with the original cast being picked apart by Sentinels, soldiers, and maybe even other mutants who have signed on as mutant hounds for the government. I'm hoping the last thing we see as Kitty goes back in time is everything except Wolverine's skeleton being vaporized.

If they do not have him annihilated by a sentinel beam, as he was in the comic, I hope they have Magneto rip his adamantium out.

I voted for everyone except Wolverine. Basically since he's the time traveler from the looks of it and hopefully he wouldnt leave anyone behind in that horrible future. And since the reason he goes back is because everyone dies... everyone must die

I don't think it would be a good idea if everybody dies, like who would they show in the future scenes fighting against the Sentinels. A couple of deaths could be moving and powerful but killing everyone except for Wolverine would be too much IMO.

Kill them all at different points of the film (starting with that sorry excuse for Storm) as a symbol of them renewing the franchise. They should recast them all, the only time they shouldn't recast is if they finally get the characters right. If they fail to make Storm a strong African Queen or Rogue a badass, and still make Wolverine the main character, the recast them. I am tired of being disappointed with the characters, there is no good reason for not doing these things.

I don't think its Anna Paquin and Halle Berry's fault that we didn't get to see a Rogue and Storm that are very close to the comics.

If there's someone to blame for this, it should be the writers. Anna and Halle are just portraying their characters based on the script and what the directors want them to do.
