X-Men: Days Of Future Past Won't Have Storm Flying Or Fighting Due To Halle Berry's Pregnancy
It's been said before that director Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past will be more of a sequel to X-Men: First Class than the trilogy that ended with X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006. As a result, we already expected that the roles played by Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, and Halle Berry would be more limited than those played by Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, however, now it looks like one of those parts will be getting even smaller.
Now that Berry is pregnant with her second child, it appears that her performance in X-Men: Days of Future Past will be getting cut back a little bit, as she won't be able to perform all of the stunts she would have done had she not been with child. "Storm probably won't be as badass as she was going to be because we won't be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that," the Oscar winning actress told the BBC. Apparently the role has changed a bit, and production will be forced to shoot around her baby bump, but she assures fans that her role will be just as important as it was. ""She'll be different than we originally planned her to be but I still think she'll be an integral part of this new X-Men movie."
What's kind of funny about this is that Berry was actually one of the last original cast members to sign on for Days of Future Past, making it somewhat ironic that now they'll have to alter the part. Still, with so many cast members coming back - not to mention terrific new additions like Peter Dinklage and Omar Sy - the film probably isn't going to put too much pressure on the Storm role anyway.
