    Sorry, it sounded like I was directing that at you, but I wasn't trying to single anyone out. It's just so often I hear about studio decisions and somehow it always circles around to being Halle's fault.

    I've followed X-Men news forever, subscribed to Wizard Magazine, have been with the Hype, Countingdown (way back when!), and other forums for years... that reason has NEVER popped up anywhere. I don't know where you got it from.

    Actually, in the comics Storm and Logan have attempted a relationship several times and it never rings true. I think they are currently an item actually... or at least it was started and the writers have seemed to forget about it again.

    You should see Halle's "Inside the Actor's Studio" segment. It's actually really good (and made me have a lot more respect for her) and she jokes about how she will never escape this line. She even does the line in the interview haha.

    No.

    You missed one detail: Cyclops and Jean are having sexual compatibility problems which is why Jean has one eye on Logan in the first place and Scott keeps straying to Emma. But what neither vixen is aware of is that Scott and Logan are also scorching and shredding up the sheets up too...on the low. See, Magneto's gay ass hooked them up with some helmets free of charge. :up:

    I mean, come on...we all know that deep down, Logan really wants some Summer iced tea. LOL :funny:

    Yeah, she'll never be able to live that famous line down. I can't remember s*** else about Monster's Ball but I DO remember her pleas for Billy Bob Thorton's character to make her "feeeel goooood".

    Her character must've been desperate as hell. Because Billy Bob Thorton is undeniably gross and unattractive. Just dry-looking. :csad:

    Totally agree with you here. But I know everyone here is just messing around haha.

    After how much they've played up Logan being soooo in love with Jean, having him hook up with Storm would make Storm look like a consolation prize. And that is not Storm.

    I agree Billy Bob is pretty gross... which is why I was pretty surprised that they actually had chemistry on-screen and he was able to portray sexuality in a convincing way. It was interesting.

    I guess when you're stranded out there in the middle of the country and there are no other options desperate times call for desperate measures. Poor thing.

    The moral of the story is to never be caught stranded in the middle of the country while in need...and with Billy Bob Thorton nonetheless. :csad:

    "Do you know what happens to a Wolverine that gets struck by lightning?"

    :awesome:

    Amazing.

    He can handle Scott's blasts, as it were.

    I had a dream about Halle/Storm last night. Her skin was dark and shimmering, and her hair was white, silky, and gorgeous. I went up to her and told her how amazing she looked.

    Yep. Everyone knows that Scott is a total...erm...dominant personality. And breaking Logan into submission is absolutely essential for many reasons: It's about leadership. It's about Jean.It's about conquering (he's a primal animal at the core). It's about dat ass. LOL!

    That's why I think Logan is best suited for power-types like him when it comes to relationships. Storm is the best feminine choice for him because she's a challenge. Scott is obviously a challenge for different reasons. Jean? Not so much. If Logan had ever truly gotten with Jean he would've been bored with her after awhile.

    We all know what they're REALLY fighting about. Hmph.


    I know there are some out there that would rather see Storm with Cyclops but...I dunno.

    This is just sooo much more interesting to me.

    In the movieverse, there's really NO choice here, but....whatever. If FOX had been smart, they would've let the Jean/Scott dynamic alone and developed something more visually appealing with Hugh and Halle's characters. Creating a pseudo love triangle between Jean, Scott and Logan was the single worst thing they could've done--because it effectively pushed Scott completely out the picture...and out of each movie, literally. :down

    I think that particular scene is just fan art. But there are some full-fledged on-line comics featuring this pair as a couple.

    I need to see the online comic receipts, LS. :awesome:

    Hold on, that picture of Storm and Cyclops kissing? That actually happened?! Good grief. No. Nooooooooooooooooooooo. I am not here for Storm and Scott.

    To be honest, love or hate it, I'm surprised that they didn't go ahead with the Storm/Wolverine relationship in X3. From a studio point of view, it gives them everything they could want. A sexy, 'power couple' to promote and Rothman clearly loved it.

    Timing, perhaps.

    Yes, definitely fan art.

    Sadly. :cool:

    I actually have a large collection of comic art featuring Scott and Logan getting along rather well. ;) But I can't post any of it here on the Hype. I'm so not trying to be the first former Hype Moderator to be banned. :funny:

    Scott is too dry of a personality to be paired with Ororo. They are two of the same type of person really--she too can be overly righteous at times. Basically Scott is a big overgrown Boy Scout in many respects and does best when he's involved with a bad boy or bad girl. That's why he and Emma have been such a hit. And many of us totally see him having his way with Logan too.

    But not with Storm. That's just...very unsexy. :o

    I would think that was one of the many reasons why comic book fans never warmed up (to say the least) to Halle as Storm, along with her portrayal of course.

    Yea pretty sure I read on a Wizard interview, this was many years after casting for the movies was done, where Bassett did say she was never asked to play Storm.

    All that said, I loved Storm/Halle in X2. I'm hoping she can go back to that character.

    Of course I bring it up when it suits me. Considering the post was responding to was saying that Halle was just being "HONEST" when she said she's been reduced to playing a comic book character, I responded with an instance where, in fact, Halle was NOT at her most honest. I think leaving the scene of a car accident, one you've caused yourself, is one of the most dishonest thing a person can do. Then saying that you have temporary amnesia as the reason you left said accident, just furthers the dishonesty.

    However, I'm glad she made up for it by continuing to volunteer at the foundation.

    Anyways, regarding the Storm/Logan pairing, I think it would just be too forced now.

    I'm just wondering how you're so sure that she was being dishonest. You say it so definitively. To me that seems like a bias. I really don't know what happened that night so I just try not to judge. It's not outside the realm of possibility that she is telling the truth. (Of course she could be lying as well. We just don't know.)

    When my brother was 12, he got hit in the head with someone's elbow or something while playing afterschool basketball. He walked home by himself and was acting really weird and kept asking what time it was... we later figured out he had suffered a concussion. To this day he still can't remember any of that afternoon.

    In an alternate reality where Xavier was killed. She had a mohawk too. I liked them together in those episodes. I'd like to see it in the movies. Maybe they're together after everything is altered!

    It's called Hot Man Smexery.

    Yes! I know, right? I know so many folks hate X3 (and with good reason) and yet I rank the film higher than most solely because Halle Berry finally captured the spirit of the fierce Weather Goddess. Her action scenes were flawless and to be honest, she doesn't get enough credit for them...or the fact that the only reason we got them is because she fought the studio to get them. :up:

    THIS!^^^^^ However, they retaliated by allowing her to get woman handled by Calisto a little to easily. And they cut the scene down, AND the cut out the flight/tidal wave!!!!! *angry face*.

    P.S. I think her facial expressions in X3 were the best of the OT Storm
