No idea, never mentioned in the film. But I guess when you're as powerful as Yashida you have contacts.

That characters pic is no surprise, it was shown in HBO behind the scenes, it made me happy to see that character

No they didn't.

I remembered it was a picture of Storm and Logan.

And isn't it nice, they are always trying to include Storm in the films even if its just for 1 second

Origins - deleted scene
First Class - Cerebro
Wolverine 2 - a picture of her

It really was. Her hair makes her look like the Intimidation Kid from the Little Giants movie.

Totally reminiscent of this:


Logan's hair is great in TW.

IIRC you see half of Logan's body cropped out.

If X3 was DOFP I think this would fit in very nicely with a dystopian future

This was released as a poster yes?

What was the thinking behind having Storm lying on top of raggedy old car with "come hither" eyes?

Ratner is such a sleeze ball...

Idk about Berry's Storm... She's got some good lines in the films but I'm usually not feeling her as Storm the way I feel Jackman as Wolverine, McKellen as Magneto, Stewart as Xavier...
I don't think she understood her character. She didn't seem to have a genuine connection with nature, didn't really have the character's essence down, imo.

Now I know her dialogues don't have to be this exaggerated:
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

But I think she could have done better, especially as an academy award winner. Hopefully DOFP proves me wrong.

If you get your hands on the Days of Future Past comic and compare Storm there with Storm in X1-3, you might see what I'm talking about.

How much of that is really Halle's fault though? In all honesty people put too much blame on Halle and not enough on Singer, an actor can have a certain way that they want to portray a character but if it doesn't line up with the directors "vision" then they have to give it up and do what the director wants. Watching three different portrayals of Storm (two under the direction of Singer) I don't think Singer and Halle really sat down and actually discussed what exactly they needed to do to get this character right, and unfortunately I don't believe that will change with DOFP.

Storm looked like a weather goddess in those pictures!

I can't wait to see in DoFp and steal the show again like she did in the first three X-Men movies!

You are right. Singer & co. cast her in the first place instead of someone else. And for marketing reasons, which is not a good sign that a character is going to be guaranteed good quality, at least in this case.

However, Storm is off in the X-Movies for many reasons, and a lot of it comes down to her, imo. I don't think fans will ever forget when she said she had been "reduced" to playing a comic book character. A true actor or actress is willing to take any challenge (indie films, comic book movies, dramas, you name it) with grace.

That "reduced to playing a comic book character" interview with Halle was such a moment for her.
