Former X-Men Star Halle Berry Ignites Speculation With A Cryptic Photo, Hinting At A Possible Return As Storm In The Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Former X-Men star Halle Berry has set the internet abuzz with speculation about her potential return to the franchise. Berry recently posted a selfie on social media, hinting at a comeback to her iconic role.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is gearing up for its first mutant-centric movie, Deadpool 3, set to release in about a year, a few familiar faces from the X-Men universe have already made appearances in the MCU. Evan Peters kicked off the Multiverse Saga with his portrayal of an alternate version of Pietro Maximoff in WandaVision, paving the way for Patrick Stewart’s highly-anticipated return as Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Reports suggest that Marvel Studios is planning to feature past X-Men stars in Avengers: Secret Wars, aiming to bring together as many X-Men actors as possible for the ultimate Marvel crossover event.
Halle Berry, who portrayed the character Storm in multiple X-Men films, has sparked speculation among fans with a recent picture she shared on Twitter. In the photo, Berry can be seen holding her cat while sporting a white hairstyle, reminiscent of her character’s iconic look.
The picture immediately caught the attention of fans on Twitter, igniting discussions and hopes of seeing Berry reprise her role as the weather-controlling mutant in the MCU. Some fans connected the timing of Berry’s post with the start of Deadpool 3 production and expressed their excitement at the possibility of seeing her as Storm again.
While Hugh Jackman has been officially confirmed to reprise his role as Wolverine in Deadpool 3, it remains uncertain which other X-Men stars might make a comeback in the upcoming film. Berry’s photo alone does not serve as confirmation of her involvement in the MCU, and she has not made any public statements regarding her interest in returning to the franchise.
Rumors have circulated that Deadpool 3 could explore the Multiverse and potentially revisit other Fox franchises, making it a significant milestone in the Marvel Studios’ multiverse storytelling. With production in its early stages, it is unclear which past X-Men stars might join the film, especially considering the many inquiries from actors about joining the MCU since Marvel gained control of the X-Men.
While the white hairstyle in Berry’s photo raises speculation about her potential return as Storm, it is yet to be confirmed. Nonetheless, the image hints at the exciting prospect of the mutants finally joining Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the MCU. Fans eagerly await any official announcements regarding the future of X-Men characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
