Default Re: "By The Goddess!": The Official Storm Discussion

I think people complained because it was in the context of the Dark Phoenix Saga, and people had certain expectations for Cyclops and Jean that were never fulfilled. For me at the time, Wolverine, Storm, and the cure storyline just took time away from the story and characters I was more interested in.

I don't know if it's just because time has passed or because of all the good vibes DoFP is getting, but X3 Storm isn't being judged nearly as harshly as she was when it first came out. At least that's what it seems to me. I know despite Wolverine overshadowing her, I've warmed up to her role in the movie.

"Yeah, I'm really happy to to," Berry told HitFix of returning to wearing Ororo's notorious white wigs. "I love Storm and I'm happy I get to be a part of it this time."

I'd expect an announcement from Bryan today or tomorrow at latest.

She's in. I'd say she's just conscious of Bryan announcing it.

So wait, I'm confused

I thought we were all pretty much of a consensus that Halle Berry sucked as Storm..

now you all love her??
Did I miss her being good in this role at some point?

And why did they want to see her?
For her awkward, do-I-or-don't-I-have-an accent?
Her wooden dialogue?
Or is it the total lack of understanding her character that drives the fans wild???


I like Singer, but he's very split when it comes to casting his films.
50% of the actors in X-Men were absolutely perfect.
The other 50%? Atrocious.

This has been discussed for nearly 10 years and is quite boring, frankly.

People are just looking forward to what Halle and Singer can do with the character this time.

She's an OT X-Men alumna, people want her in it regardless of their reservations about her previous portrayals.

So what, just because these points have been brought up over and over, I'm supposed to pretend I'm stoked for her coming back???

Maybe they get brought up over and over because she really did suck that bad.

I'd rather they just leave Storm outta this one if they're not willing to recast.

No one is willing to have this debate with you so you might as well just drop it. No one is forcing you to be excited about her return but that doesn't mean that you should discount other people's excitement for her return. We're all entitled to our opinion and you've made yours quite clear already. Just let it go and move on, more than likely Halle will have a very small part so you won't have to tolerate her for long, while we fans will drink in every second of screen time she gets.

Hurry up Singer! This is similar to what happened with Jackman though.

ok ok, sorry, i'll let it go
based on your sig, I doubt we would agree on much about these films anyway, so best to not fight about something so incosequential as a movie.
but yes, hopefully she'll only be a small part

I thought Storm's lowest point was her little pep talk to Rogue, when she considered getting cured. You're a demi-goddess, she can't touch a human being for more than a few seconds without killing them. It's not the same thing, you don't know what it's like, shut up.

yeah, I kind of hated that dialogue. Storm should know by now how someone as Rogue would feel with the news.
the dialogue was really poor, but anyway, Singer in back on board, I expect something better this time, in all areas
