Singer Talks ‘X-Men’s’ Storm and CGI


“Days of Future Past” is quickly approaching. The scope of the cast will be huge and whether it can be pulled off right is anyone’s guess. Long-time X-Men director Bryan Singer will sure try to pull it off, especially with two of these movies successfully under his belt. Singer did talk about some of what he has planned.

When Matthew Vaughn stepped away from this newest installment, Singer arrived to oversee its completion. One intriguing announcement will how he will use CGI in the sequel, which probably stemmed from “Jack the Giant Slayer.” A CG Nick Hoult or a CG Ewan McGregor, maybe 20 years from now might be perfect, but it’s a little tough on the eyes when it’s not real, he said of computer-generated characters. Both Hoult and McGregor will be starring in “Jack the Giant Slayer.”

Continuing on the subject, he says, But I definitely want to use this technology again, and I might even be using some of it in a different way in ‘X-Men.’ I don’t want to say how yet, but I’m definitely using some of this technology on ‘X-Men,’ which I never used in any of the other ‘X-Men’ films. Could this be a possible Sentinels hint? Regardless of what it could mean, he was open to using CG characters in the film.

The cast will have a wide array of talent such as Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, and more. Singer says the script will accommodate each, but there is one character noticeably missing.

Halle Berry, who played the weather-controlling mutant Storm, has still been not confirmed for the “Days of Future Past.” Singer does not yet know if she will return. I can’t say. I don’t know yet. And it’s not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it’ll make sense. But I love working with her.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be released July 2014.

    If not recasting Storm, let’s just sit her out on this round.

    as much as there are so many other people that could have been a better storm, it would be far too much to recast just one of the main characters in this massive re-uniting of cast members >_<

    I don’t trust Singer. I anticipate this will be an awful movie like all the X-Men films.

    Angella bessett was always my favorite for storm. Iman would’ve been great as well.

  • capwulf

    No. You must recast. Halle Berry was terrible beyond comprehension. “What happens when a frog is hit by lightning…..” This chick is garbage.

  • Brian

    people keep talking about the frog line like she wrote. Kill the writer for that.. not her

    Both too old.

    Iman would have made an awesome Storm in the same way that Grace Jones would not.

  • cynic000

    Joss Whedon wrote that line. Blame him for how awful it sounded.

  • cynic000

    Singer is hedging on the use of CGI because it’s expensive and Fox is all about the cheapness. From what I recall, the budget on the first movie was cut to the bone and most of the FX shots were scrapped by execs over Singer’s objections. They probably want to go with animatronic Sentinels to avoid having to shell out millions for CGI versions. Maybe the Sentinels will be giant cloud-beings instead of robots. Yeah, that’ll work.

    Somewhere out there is the perfect storm waiting tables wating foe her big break. Hollywood needs to remember that instead of recycling untalented overpaid actors.

  • UmfromBrooklyn

    Superman sucked too let’s not forget. JJ Abrams can’t do everthing.

  • Xmasevebaby

    Recast the role if need be, but to simply exclude Storm from this film is another example of Hollywood whitewashing of Marvel movies.

  • Devil

    Hoping This movie be like the Avengers where everyone gets a chance to shine plz be at lease a solid 2 1/2 hrs. If Berry isnt coming back her lost she’s pretty much worthless in Hollywood anyways any movie she’s always flop.d
