Between the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Extended Universe, and X-Men franchise, there is no shortage of superhero movies being produced nowadays. But Bryan Singer's original X-Men films started many years before the idea of serialized storytelling became commonplace. We were introduced to the most iconic members of the mutant team through those films, and they'd eventually reprise their roles in Days of Future Past. And while a new class of actors have taken the mantle of the roles, it turns out there was a secret X-Men romance that audiences weren't privy to: Storm and Logan were totally an item.
Storm and Logan used to be lovers. It's true. Storm and Logan had a thing. I joke in the movies, I'm like, 'How come nobody's loving on Storm.' Like what's wrong with Storm? Nobody is checking for Storm. So, we decided that Storm and Logan had a thing, and then Jean came and messed that up.
Talk about dropping the mic. It turns out there was a secret mutant on mutant affair happening in the original X-Men movies. So the love triangle between Scott, Logan, and Jean is now officially a love square (or rectangle), with Storm adding to the interpersonal dynamics at play.
News of Storm and Logan's relationship actually might not come as a total surprise to the diehard fans of the franchise. Because while all of the on screen romance revolved around the aforementioned love triangle, Storm and Logan shared an intimate moment in a deleted scene from Days of Future Past. Before Wolverine traveled back in time to stop Mystique from killing Trask, the two kissed and said goodbye- probably forever. Check it out.
Ultimately this was left on the cutting room floor, making it's validity suspect. But Halle Berry has now confirmed Storm and Logan's steamy behind the scenes romance, which adds an extra level of complexity to the original X-Men films.
Halle Berry also revealed that Storm was not interested in being second place to Jean in Logan's heart, which is why the duo never had a proper relationship. She could see his feeling toward her fellow X-Man, and backed off for them to figure it out. This helps the above deleted scene make sense, as Jean was long dead since Logan killed her in The Last Stand. Eventually their romantic feelings must have resurfaced, especially as mutants began being round up and taken.
