“that lupita reign just don’t let up”.
that is actually a dope picture tho.
so everyone realizes lupita nyong’o is “it”.
well they trying to get halle berry out and lupita in as “storm” from x-men.
it’s so bad they even got a petition ready…
The petition started on the Change.org website by BlackGirlNerds blogger, Jamie Broadnax pleads:
“This is important because listening to the demands of your consumer base means more than your own personal casting choices. She has the accent, the look, and the acting chops to play Storm as the comic book intended. Please kindly take this into consideration and respect the demand of Marvel consumers and fans of this amazing franchise. This petition was started based on the overwhelming responses to my tweet ‘I volunteer as tribute to lead a social media charge to get Lupita cast as Storm!’”
Halle Berry played “Storm” in the original X-Men movie as well as 2003’s X2: X-Men United and 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. The next installation in the franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently in post production.
The average movie-goer probably thinks Berry did a solid job as the mutant with the ability to control the weather. But comic book aficionados know that Storm is actually African, and that Halle Berry probably wasn’t the best fit for the character, but simply won the role due to the lack of viable candidates in Hollywood.
well i personally applaud this.
not because i like lupita and all,
but because I ALWAYS HATE HALLE BERRY AS STORM.
i wish the real storm would have come down from the heavens on the casting directors like so:
don’t get me wrong,
i love halle to death,
but i much preferred angela bassett to play that role.
since angela got a new gig with american horror story: coven,
i feel lupita would do the role justice.
they also need to get rogue right if we talkin’ changes as well.
lowkey: i always wondered if i was an x man,
what i would want my powers to be?
the power of shittin on these hoes.
something stupid powerful i know that much.
not some damn fireworks like jubilee.
random sidebar nerd moment.
