    Halle's personal drama is kind of irrelevant to this. Patrick Stewart hinted at returning months ago, so it's clear the casting has been under-way for a while. If Storm is in the script they will have checked Halle's availability the same time as everyone else. They may have even enquired about the cast availability during the early scripting stage. A deal may already be in place, just unannounced, and this drama won't matter in July 2014.

    We know simon Kinberg had been doing some work on script after Bryan Singer took over as director.Conserding his past history with halle berry It's possable he didn't want to deal
    with her again.And If she tried to pull the I want lots of screen time for storm again that could cause her to be dropped.

    It's very unlikely to be any recasting.Expect for prequels X-Men films have only done that for cameo roles.

    dont worry, we wont have all the cast from the 4 previous movies, lol

    Some fans seem to expect like 10 or more original actors on this sequel, but thats a fan dream more than anything.

    Id LOVE to see Gambit and Kurt again on the big screen, but sadly this sequel doesnt seem the moment.

    If Storm was in the script when Vaughn was still attached Bryan would have had to 'deal with' Halle anyway because he's producing. He would have been on-set and providing input on the story/characters. Whether Bryan was directing or producing Halle and himself would have been 'dealing' with each other either way, so it's unlikely he cut Storm as soon as he took over just because he had a thing with Halle 10 years ago. Lauren Shuler Donner and Halle get on fine, so Bryan would have to convince the fellow producers and the studio to get rid of one of the most familiar faces from the X-trilogy.

    Storm has either been involved in the story from the beginning, or she hasn't. We'll find out which it is soon.

    Rogue could very easily be the time traveler If they go with a physical time travel and don't go with Wolverine.And let's put It this way Bryan Singer Is more likely to try to
    get Anna Paquin In film than Halle Berry.

    Matthew Vaughm may only be a producer In name only with Days of future past especilly If he Is indeed directing star Wars Episode 7.

    There is one other consideration regarding Storm. Ethnic diversity.

    Without Storm, the returning cast is all white Caucasian.

    So you're suggesting we might end up, somehow, with the Original Five?

    I agree the Original Five are not at all racially diverse, but that reflects the early 60s. And I'm sure a film adaptation would include diversity in the film somehow, even if not in the X-Men team themselves.

    No I am staying Some for First Class wanted the so called first Class.

    If Bryan Singer was able to ignore the Last Stand than apart from Xavier and Magneto the characters In future scenes are likely to be Wolverine,Rogue,Cyclops,Jean,Mystique,
    and possibly Iceman.

    If they are gonna kill Rogue, I think it could be better if they show it instead of just mentioning it. Rogue's death could be more powerful, more dramatic and more memorable. And just like in the comics, the depowered mutants were killed after they lost their power and they could do that with Rogue.

    Well, they have more than 3 months to prep and shoot, so we should be fine in that regard. :p

    Wow looks like a whole lot has happened since I was last here. I am absolutely psyched to hear some casting announcements, (I remember when I almost had a nervous breakdown at the fact that there was no news lol)

    I'm happy to welcome back Ian mckellen, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael fassbender and Nicholas Hoult to xmen especially ian and patrick I missed them (and if the rumours are true Hugh Jackman as well)

    I can't wait to find out who else is coming back. I would like to see Famke, Anna, Rebecca and Halle come back. I know with all the personal drama surrounding her some people think she might not come back but i agree with Electrix has said. If an adult storm is anyway involved on this film then I think Halle may be playing her. Although they might be holding off on announcing her until all the drama blows over. But then again Storm might not have been involved in this movie at all. Which would be a shame I miss seeing her in the movies

    EDIT
    It seems that Halle Berry has quite quickly and unexpectedly settled her case with Gabriel Aubry. It seems this might all blow over sooner than expected. I find it curious that she has settled this all quite quickly especially considering her fears about Aubry. I wonder if Fox Execs had forced her to get all this sorted out so it has no negative impact to DoFP once they announce her involvement. or maybe I'm just reading way too much into this. i just hope that Storm appears in some shape or form

    Beast actually doesn't look too bad on that pic (and this is coming from someone who detested his FC look!).

    But they need to do something about Mystique's hair. I've always thought this, even with Rebecca's Mystique (though Rebecca's Mystique always had the good fortune of being in dimly-lit scenes).

    She looks like she has mascot hair. Back in 2000's X-men days, before we ever saw pics of Mystique, her hair was described as slicked-back. I think they need to give it that "wet slicked-back"-look. Or at the very least, play around with the lighting!

    Haha It only took like 4 years! I've been posting here since Spidermanhype.com (the site's first incarnation) days and for the life of me I can't remember my username/password and I don't have access to my old email!

    At this pace you'll have your big avatar in 2 years, just in time for DOFP! :xmen:

    A new hairstyle for young Mystique wouldn't be bad. A longer hair would be nice.

    They need to give him better teeth. It seemed like he had a hard time talking with those in his mouth.

    You think they've been dropped. I mean I can't think of one reason why they would not have announced them with the rest of the first class cast. It isn't like fans are going to go crazy over their announcements. But then again maybe Bryan and the rest will just announce their return in the interim before announcing the next original cast member returning.

    Storm's part in the previous films have been so inconsequential that she could probably be written out while shooting if a director wanted. Her few lines could just be reassigned to someone else as they rarely ever have anything to do with her character or have any importance to the plot. I can't imagine her role would be any different in DOFP.

    Halle is also rumoured to have not got along with Famke (a tabloid even picked up the feud between the two when X3 was released). Not that that will be a big factor in anything, but it's another person part of the Singer crew that has had problems with Berry.
