The Perfect Storm

W7HyaVf“that lupita reign just don’t let up”.
that is actually a dope picture tho.
so everyone realizes lupita nyong’o is “it”.
told ya’ll.
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…

tumblr_lhs7tvIno01qg4s5uo1_500    It appears a petition has started for Lupita Nyong’o to play the character of “Storm” in the Marvel series of X-Men movies.

The petition started on the 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,
i wish the real storm would have come down from the heavens on the casting directors like so:
jimleestormdon’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.
just saying.
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.

  1. I would’ve preferred Angela too.I don’t get a powerful strong African Goddess vibe from Halle Berry.

    They’re not gonna replace her now though.We’ll have to wait for the reboot which will eventually happen.They’ve already hinted at replacing Hugh Jack man.

  2. If they were smart they would cast her as Storm/Ororo for the First Class movies. You know who would make a great Rouge? Jena Malone from ‘Catching Fire’…the crazy chick that got butt nekkid in the elevator

  3. I always thought Naomi Campbell (if she could act ) would be a great Storm . To me she had the look tall elegant goddess- like. Angela definitely has that fierceness that would do the role of Storm justice and now Lupita . I really hope they make some changes.

  4. I’m a BIG X-men fan and as much as I love halle, I always thought Angela was the only choice to play storm. Storm is older,wise, beautiful, and powerful. I know angela would kill this role, so as much as i love lupita, i want to see angela as goddness.

  5. As a black nerd I don’t necessarily see her as storm. Now marrow,Polaris, or the new black panther she would be good

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
