For those of you who may have wondered what Halle Berry‘s pregnancy – her second child with fiance Oliver Martinez – may mean for her upcoming appearance in Bryan Singer‘s prequel X-Men: First Class, the answer is: probably not a lot.
In an interview with BBC UK, the Oscar winning Monster’s Ball star said:
“Storm probably won’t be as bad-ass as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that. She’ll be different than we originally planned her to be, but I still think she’ll be an integral part of this new X-Men movie.”
That Berry further claims the script hasn’t been altered to account for her condition would seem to suggest that the current generation of X-Men may feature in the film in a less active capacity than their 70s counterparts.
If X-Men: Days of Future Past follows the storyline of the same way, it’s possible that we only see the modern-day X-Men as they exist in the alternate present: imprisoned in internment camps or pursued by Sentinels, along with the rest of mutantkind.
The film is due out on July 18th, 2014. More on Singer and Co.’s time-traveling escapades as and when we have it.
