Halle Berry Will Likely Be In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

As X-Men: Days of Future Past rolls toward production (insert Professor X pun here) there remains some big question marks about the cast. Director Bryan Singer has already established that this is a reunion film, bringing back multiple actors from the original trilogy, but there are some key names missing. Chief among them is Halle Berry. While Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Ellen page are all set to return, there hasn't been any definitive news about whether the Oscar winning actress would be back as the mutant known as Storm. Today we still don't have anything definitive, but at least we're getting closer.

With The Call set to arrive in theaters soon Berry is currently doing press rounds and in an interview with Shadow and Act she revealed that there's a very good chance she will be back in her white wig for Days of Future Past. While the article contains no actual quotes, the site says she told him, that there are "a few details that are still being negotiated which she couldn't get into," but that she was well-aware that production is aiming to start in April. The impression that the interviewer got was positive, saying, "It's very possible that something could happen and that she won't be in it at all. But that's not a possibility that I got from her."

In addition to all of the aforementioned actors, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence are set to reprise their respective roles from X-Men: First Class. For all the latest updates on the film, be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
