Four Actresses That Would Make A Better Storm Than Halle Berry

There are very few things that comic book fans can agree on when discussing movie adaptations of their favorite books: THE DARK KNIGHT was dang near perfect, DAREDEVIL was a bit of a train wreck¬†and Halle Berry as Storm in the X-MEN movies was just awful. So upon seeing the photo of Berry in full Storm costuming, that returning X-MEN director Bryan Singer tweeted just fills me with dread. With the changes that were made to the established cinematic continuity by the last X-MEN movie my hopes were up that the opportunity would be taken to rectify the dismal casting decision of hiring Berry to play Storm but alas it was not to be. That won’t stop me, however, from doing my own wishful casting of actresses that would be much better in the role than Halle Berry though.
