So true!

However although Halle looked sexier than she did in Catwoman it doesn't mean she looked sexy in that uniform. I think Storm shouldn't wear anything that covers so much skin, Storm is all about freedom and she conveys that through her choice of clothing (I mean have you seen Storm's first comic book costume from the 70's) She should wear a costume that exposes more skin and is able to present her as a self-confident, sexy woman.

She also needs her gold lightning bolt earrings and her tiara, they are such classic accessories of Storm.

I know I personally would want a kind of mix between the two. Maybe wearing their xmen uniforms under their jackets or something.
I can see why you would want them to wear uniforms, but I'd just like to remind you that even in the comic they didn't wear uniforms in the future panels. Everyone but Wolverine were in those green jumpsuits the entire time.

Yes I guess you're right.

I'll still hold out hope though.

I don't think they should re-introduce an accent, but I do think they should write her dialogue to be more in line with how Storm in the comics world speaks.

In X2, they dropped the accent AND had Halle say lines that sounded too colloquial. I think they could get away with Halle speaking more formally in DOFP to get a sense that Storm isn't exactly American but has been fluent in English for a long time.

I agree. There's an elegance to the way Halle naturally sounds. Combine that with more formal dialog and it should work pretty well.

Storm has to have an accent in a reboot, though.

I think its "the Halle Berry situation". I feel like there's always suspense whether she is coming back or not for a X-Men movie.

Err no.

Storm made it to the end of X3 alive and strong and happy. Cyke did not.

As for her role, it's more than likely that Storm will be the leader of the X-Men. That could be a significant role.
This is so true.

Maybe my memory is acting up, but I think Storm was actually one of the very few things I was happy with in X3. Finally we got to see a character closer to her comic counterpart. Not 100% right, but much better than X1 and X2.

It is not Halle's fault that Cyclops was killed, or that Wolverine was the centre once again, or that Phoenix was horribly written. We all know how much studio politics went into that, and Halle is not part of it.

For her part, Halle fought for a stronger Storm. I don't feel she hogged screentime at all. There really aren't pointless Storm scenes in the movie, in my opinion. She was the last X-Men standing. Of course she was bound to have a leading role in the school, which is NOT a foreign concept to the fans. People critique her eulogy scene, but...who should have spoken? Kitty? Wolverine? Rogue?

Halle fought for what everyone wanted: a Storm that didn't just linger in the background following orders. She never wanted to be the center of the movie, and SHE WASN'T. She had a supporting role, the only difference is that in X3 she was more important to the school than in the previous movies.

EDIT: I'm also ecstatic about the possibility of Halle coming back!

Why do so many fans want to see Storm with a mohawk? Am I the only one who thinks this would be a most unflattering look on Halle Berry?

I have no clue. It was a blunder in the comics, and it would certain be in a movie.

Bryan's entire take on Storm would have to change to coincide with that punk rocker look. She would essentially have to pick up from where Ratner's fierce version left off.

Yeah they would have to give her a reason to do it. Alt version could work I guess, but I think most want to see Storm done right first.

Fans wants her to sport the mohawk because of the comics. But Storm/Halle Berry would just look awkward with that hairstyle in the movie. She would suddenly look like a poser, a punk girl and its gonna be distracting to look at.

I imagine people will laugh when they see Storm with that hairstyle.

A big no to the mohawk.

It just wouldn't look right. In the comics, it happened after a series of events made Storm reinvent herself.

The movies won't be able to show that unfolding subplot so it would just seem random, like 'Hey kids, there's giant mutant-killing robots everywhere so I'll just go to the salon and get a mohawk, okay?'

No.

Interestingly enough, it's actually trending right now in America for women to get mohawks. Let's pray to god that Louise Mingenbach is ignoring that particular fashion trend.

Storm currently has the Mohawk now and it looks fierce!

No.
TAS actually used this idea in the "Days of Future Past" episode after the Sentinels killed Xavier in the past. The same idea could be used, considering the circumstances regarding the Sentinels in the new movie.

^ Yeah but that's a whole lot of exposition that we all know this film won't take the time to invest in Storm. If she shows up with a mohawk it'll be jarring and random.

Well, I think It all could depend on how they introduce the present(or future). If it takes place many years after "The Last Stand", then they could bring her on screen with the mohawk(of something similar) already in tact, with an altered personality/appearance. Which could have been something that happened gradually between the events of the third film and this one(TAS didn't necessarily go into why she had one either).

She was leading the school the last we left off. Such a burden, including all of the untold challenges they had to face along with the Sentinels would explain the change perfectly. She had to become tougher, more cold and distant, and usually her appearance reflects that with the Mohawk.
