Halle Berry & Omar Sy join X-Men: Days of Future Past


A bit more casting news for X-Men: Days of Future Past today. First of all, Halle Berry is reprising her role as Storm. She was rumored to return to the film for a while, but is now confirmed via Bryan Singer’s Twitter account (your #1 source for X-Men casting news, apparently). Singer also took to Twitter to welcome Omar Sy from The Intouchables to the cast. Here are both of Singer’s tweets:

Thrilled to welcome the brilliant #OmarSy from the amazing film #TheIntouchables to the cast of #Xmen #DaysofFuturePast!

Couldn’t be more excited that #HalleBerry has joined the cast of #XMen #DaysofFuturePast. Hopefully she can improve the weather in Montreal.

So in addition to Berry and Sy, the cast so far is: James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Hugh Jackman, and Peter Dinklage as an unspecified villain.

And yet, still no luck for Famke Janssen.
