Halle Berry Added To X-Men Cast, Almost Enough For Three Basketball Teams Now
Halle Berry was the latest addition to the cast of next year’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” directed by Bryan Singer and the fifth installment in the franchise. The plotline will be set in the 1970s and original film series members will play older versions of themselves as mutants are hunted down. Berry will play Storm and joins fellow casted actors and actresses Anna Paquin [Rogue], James McAvoy [Charles Xavier], Ellen Page [Shadowcat], Michael Fassbender [Magneto], Shawn Ashmore [Iceman], Jennifer Lawrence [Raven/Mystique], Nicholas Hoult [Beast], Hugh Jackman [Wolverine], Omar Sy [Black Panther], Ian McKellen [Magneto], Patrick Stewart [Professor X] and Peter Dinklage [new unnamed character] – putting them only two short of forming three basketball teams and potentially dominating the Marvel rec league – depending on the ability of Paquin to dunk.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is currently scheduled to be released on July 18, 2014.
