    Miss berrie has said she will not do an x-men 3 because she has taken the character as far as it can go.

    What do you think Garrett, is that much of a loss?

    No loss IMO. Very one-dimensional character, not even a "love-interest" on the horizon? Must admit I don't read the comics, but love the films.

    Agree, but not as Storm. Very unsexy character (disregarding how she looks in leather), typical school teacher actually. :D

    This was always on the cards (Berry didn't really want to X2 for the same reasons), that is that not enough is made of the character.

    Storm is an interesting character and I'd consider her a loss to X3. However, other characters who've yet to be included (such as Gambit or Beast) would be more beneficial to X3.

    We've discussed this in loads of X3 threads though :)

    I take " I've taken the character as far as it can go" to mean "I'm waiting to get my wages upped".

    I think it's more: "Write more for Storm so it's actually worth my while".

    Which I can actually quite understand. Much of the Storm relationships and background are from the time-travel stories which won't make good film.

    I always liked the rogue/gambit relationship in the cartoons..... couldnt X3 bring in rogue and her encounters that led to her flying (not to mention the lovely yellow and green suit! ;))

    What makes you say that? ;) Actually Remy Lebeau is in Stryker's mutant database (as are a lot of other familiar names :)).

    I doubt there'll have Rogue flying or with super-strength just yet, but I suppose they're almost to the suit with her white streak of hair!

    Berry played Storm straight out of the cartoon in X1, very official and portentous. But the character was a complete U-turn in X2 she was all smiles, quite warm and friendly. I agree though there was virtually nothing for her to do in either film, you're not going to hang onto a big name like Berry if you keep asking her to do what are in essence walk-on parts.

    At the risk of sounding like another (younger) member of this Forum, does anyone else feel that Anna Paquin who plays Rogue is a bit porky to be seen in a Superhero/leather outfit in a Hollywood Blockbuster?

    There are hundreds of rumours about all the X-Men films though as there's so much potential for different stories.

    Sentinels were rumoured for X2 as well, but tbh it's likely they began in threads like this where fans say what they want from the next film!

    I would just get an other actress for the role, as so far she has not been one of the foreground characters and no plot threads for her from X2 to X3.

    As a fan of the comics all the characters had there day in the spotlight. Seeing as I’m a fan of the original group and the new reformed group which she joined in Giant Size X-Men/ The Uncanny X-Men 94 I will miss her.

    I personally feel the 2 films are Wolverine and the X-Men rather than The X-Men. But if that is what is needed to get them to make more, so be it as he seems to be the most popular character.

    Unfortunately they have got on a 3 year cycle of making the films so rather than trying a new main character, or a more across the board team they have to work with what the know will sell. It is a shame as I too would like to see more characters brought in as well as mentioned Rogue and Gambit, also Angel and Beast(as the last part of the original team).
    If Rogue does get her super strength and flying abilities I hope the include Carol Danvers in her black Miss Marvel outfit.:smoke:
