    we need a thread for this.

    I think some need to tamper their wishlist.Days of future past will be between 2 hours and 2 hours and 20 minutes.

    You have Xavier and returning X-Men(Beast,Havok,Banshee) that makes 4 characters.Add Magneto and his defente retuing brotherhood(Mystique,Emma
    Frost,Azarel) that brings us up to 8 characters.The target of assassination makes 9.We all know for some length wolverine will be In film so that brings us
    up to 10.If angel and Riptide are still among the brotherhood that brings Us up to 12.If Moira Is In film that poential brings us up to 13.ThIs Is not even at thefuture sequenzes yet(which could be where all of wolverine's screen time will be) we are already at 10 or 13 characters.Older versions of Xavier,Magneto,and Mystique may be In future sequenzes.

    You have possibly of Jean,Cyclops,Storm,and Rogue In future sequenzes.This leaves us with at least 14 Characters.17 If all the surviving first Class
    characters make It Into days of future past.Plus you have the sentinles In future.

    This means It's unlikley besides target of assassination to have any new characters Introduced Inless there Is 1 mutant taking place of angel and Riptide among the brotherhood.New cast members are mostly going to be returning from X-Men/X2

    Fox may not even have the rights to Cable.But besides that If they are going to do a time travel crossover why would they take time away from familar to general audence characters for Cable or Bishop who haven't been popular In years.I firmly believe If wolverine Isn't time traveler.

    I haven't mentioned Kitty.There Is good reason for that.The possibilbe return of Jean suggests the following.They are Ignoring The Last Stand for the future sequenzes.The advantage Is they can also bring back Cyclops.Plus It Is unknown If they could even get ellen Page to conisder reuring assuming
    her contract Isn't valid.

    Some keep hoping another group of villains causes the assassination.With all the characters mentioned that Isn't fesable.

    Some people mention things that are days of future past In name only.Bryan singer hinted at combining things from storyline and new stuff.The point Is there will be things from oirignal story In film.X2 took things from God Loves Man kills like Xavier and Cyclops being captured.Xavier being tricked(In comics It was drugs In film It was by stryker's mastermind like son) the X-Men on run,being saved by Magneto,and X-Men and Magneto against stryker.

    Now we are going to be deabting what exactly they are using and what they are adding till more information comes available.But,my suspecion Is we will get future several years after X2 with sentinles.A Time travel plan to warn the first Class era X-Men.The brotherhood through Mystique having inflirated government,and brotherhood planning assassination and Sentinles Vs surving X-Men In future and X-Men Vs Brotherhood In past.

    Alternatively, he might mean by that odd phrase 'deal-making aspect' that Halle's appearance isn't a deal-breaker - in other words, it won't make any different to the film if she says yes or no.

    It all sounds a bit weird and hard to get a handle on.

    Maybe Singer's just being coy. Maybe he is waiting to announce Halle's return. After all if Storm definitely wasn't in it why not just say that.

    In other words, we should all interpret it the way we so desire and jump to conclusions as a means to *****. :xmen:

    I didn't sound weird to me. It sounded like a careful and polite way of saying that he has no plans to put her in it.

    I dunno. Bryan is not one to mince words. The film starts shooting in 2 months; what would be the point? If she wasn't in the plan at all Bryan would've just come right out and said so. He knows fans want her back; to tease us with "Maybe/Maybe Not" and then follow up with "Not" would be less than polite.

    He said it wasn't a contractual issue which basically means Halle is open to doing it. It's in his hands and the storyline's needs. If he DOES bring her back--even if it's last minute--can you imagine what it would do for fans (like myself) who have always believed he cared little for the character? It'd be like uniting a fractured Democratic fanbase between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton! :funny:

    We'd truly be "united" then. :up:


    [BLACKOUT]That said, he better not be f***ing around with us! LOL :cool:[/BLACKOUT]

    LOL May I just point out how many SHH Hype Members on this thread have Storm and/or Storm-inspired avatars right now? I mean...check it out. And this is the way it is in comic book forums across the internet. The character is beloved. We've been patient and supported the films without her inclusion for a few years now...hopefully Singer & Co. will remember that and throw us a bone already. LOL :p

    Seeing Thor in action in Avengers/Thor as well - this would be a great opportunity to showcase visually epic Storm power displays.

    exactly. He would piss Storm fans even more if after his quote, some months later he ends saying she doesnt come back.

    Fox producers probably love Halle and pushed Matthew, Simon and Bryan to include the character.

    It was smart to announce Patrick, Ian and Hugh before the rest, including Halle. Because now that the fans are excited with all the characters announced to date, a Halle announcement now wouldnt piss the haters as much as it would have done if she would have been the very first name, back on October/Nov.

    Well, the four top billed actors of the original trilogy were Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry. By time X3 rolled around, Jackman and Berry were the franchise's top billed stars. And--love her or hate her--Halle Berry is this franchise's lead actress--even over Famke Janssen or Anna Paquin (she certainly made more than them salary-wise). FOX even manipulated screen-time in X3 for her at the expense of Famke--who should've rightfully had more as Dark Phoenix. So it makes total sense to secure the fanbase with 3 of the four big names up front. Hopefully they'll close the deal with Berry's inclusion.

    People need to remember If Storm Is In film she will only be In future scenes.And word has leaked most of film Is set In 1973.

    With Xavier In future he will be leader of X-men.Plus you have both Wolverine and Magneto In future not to mention Rogue and Kitty.You have to give them all a bit of focus.

    With all the complaints over Halle Berry's performance as storm It's funny some are going she has to be In film.Also remember both ant-Man/Ginat-Man and wasp were left out of avengers.

    It's better for them tp pick characters which fit their interpation of Days of future past than just trying to throw In characters.

    Yeah but it would still be very odd having the other key members in future scenes and not have Storm.

    If the film picks up after X3 how can Xavier possibly be leader in the future? He was vaporized in X3 and left the school to Storm to manage. Which would make her automatically leader since Scott is also MIA. And that's just staging the story off of the films, not to mention getting into the source material.

    So either way, Storm should have a place in this.

    People complain over her "Todd Struck by Lightning" delivery in 2000 and her ever-vanishing African Accent. Some say she's too short (but 5'9 for a woman is tall, put her in heels and she'd reach Storm's 5'11 height with no issue) and her overall "softened" approach. Even I admit her lines weren't always delivered well.

    But I've never heard anyone complain about her action sequences, especially in X3 where she was a bad b**** to mess with. I seem to recall she did all of her own wire-work, including those spinning sequences in Jean Grey's neighborhood. She was all about earning her keep on that production. So I think more people want her (the character) back than not. My concern is that the character is included--and if that means Halle Berry embodying her again, so be it.

    Xavier Is defently In this In future.So he will be more the leader.

    The only way Storm will be In DOFP Is If Halle Berry playing her.And at this junction the only thing from comics that could be adopted for Storm Is VS The Sentinles.

    And there Is also the question of how much screentime Is the future scenes.

    none has mentioned, I think, but what if Xavier is one of the prisoners on that apocaliptic future?

    most of the users seems to assume he will be there with the whole team and Mags, but maybe Bryan and Kimberg has something totally different in store.

    I doubt all the returning actors will appear together since the very first minute. Bryan will probably bring some nice twists here and there

    More likely the film will open showing you a bit of future world and then go to Wolverine and eather rogue or Kitty(Most likely Kitty) begining plan to rescue others from prison camp.

    we will get some character moments for at least Xavier,Magneto,Iceman and eather rogue or Kitty(Most likely Rogue) In prison camp(It depends on rather Colossus,Mystique and Storm make the cut for future scenes)

    Unlike comic you can bet your money on a big action packed escape from Camp.And unlike comic I doudt Magneto stays behind In Camp.Some are forgetting he could have a big showdown with sentinles.

    He could stay behind in the camp, and still have a big showdown with sentinels. I don't know if they would want to lose McKellen like that, but the two aren't mutually exclusive.

    Storm and Magneto are perfect candidates to battle/attempt to battle Sentinels. As a huge Storm fan I would be happy enough if that's all we got of Storm in this movie - a desperate battle with Sentinels during the future scenes where Storm, potentially, perishes. That would have a huge impact on viewers imo.

    I agree marvelrobbins. I hope Halle Berry is NOT in DOFP because she's a spoiled overpriced b**ch! She only did X3 b/c she got what she wanted which was getting more screentime than anyone else alongside Hugh Jackman and she took away from everyone else! She took away from poor Anna who was NOT suppost to regress and from Famke who was NOT suppost to be just some walking corpse.:cmad: Since Halle already got her time to shine and since Jean is dead it's time Rogue/Anna got her time to shine and look like a real hero.

    Now that the *****bag known as Tom Rothman is gone I think Bryan Singer will get to do things he wants to do. If Bryan Singer and Mark Millar choose to focus on every character equally Halle will NOT accept it.

    I don't know why we have to keep explaining ourselves, the evidence is clear. Based on just the movieverse Storm has every reason to be a part of this film. There is no reason why she shouldn't.

    No matter whether people like Halle Berry or not she is Storm and will be the actress portraying for the time being. She is also one of the stars of the franchise as has been pointed out. Her exclusion from this movie will not be because she doesn't fit into the story but because Singer does not want her.
