The next flick in the X-Men film series (barring Wolverine’s solo outing) already boasts an impressive cast of Magnetos and Xaviers classic and new, Mystique, Wolverine, and several young vets of the original trilogy. Whether or not the weather goddess, Storm, or the high-flying BAMFer, Nighcrawler, will make appearances is still up in the air. Here’s what director Bryan Singer had to say about Storm’s possible return:
“I can’t say. I don’t know yet. And it’s not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it’ll make sense. I don’t want to say who the protagonists are yet, or talk about that yet, but I will say that every character has a very important function in the story. The story is designed and catered to the combined cast. It’s not just throwing in people to occupy the screen, occupy the billboards.”
When it comes to Nightcrawler, his response was much more truncated: “I don’t know. We’ll see.”
Even if these two X-favorites don’t return, this film already seems to be shaping up into one hell of a ride. No matter what happens, it’s going to be interesting.
