In the most inevitable piece of casting news since the last time Guillermo Del Toro decided to cast Ron Perlman in a movie, producer-director-pitchman Bryan Singer has officially announced that Halle Berry will once again play mutant weather goddess Storm in the upcoming X-Men sequel/prequel/alterna-quel Days of Future Past. “Couldn’t be more excited that #HalleBerry has joined the cast of #XMen #DaysofFuturePast,” tweeted Singer, confirming the long-expected return of the actress, shown here dressed as a cyborg mermaid.
Berry joins a gang of original-trilogy castmates that already includes Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Anna Paquin, plus Peter Dinklage and Omar Sy and, what the heck, maybe even some of the cast members of X-Men: First Class.
