Nicki Minaj Was Reportedly Being Considered To Replace Halle As Storm In The Upcoming X-Men Sequel

Last week news broke that Trinidadian bombshell Nicki Minaj would be making her acting debut alongside Cameron Diaz in forthcoming film, The Other Woman. While this was major news, according to reports The Other Woman director, Nick Cassavetes and the folks over at 20th Century Fox weren’t the only ones looking to cast theatrical emcee in their latest flick. RumorFix is saying that X-Men producers were strongly considering replacing 46-year-old Halle Berry as Storm in the saga’s latest installment, X-Men: Days of Future Past with the “High School” rapper.

Although this is just a rumor and has yet to be confirmed by Nicki or X-Men producers, we have to admit that the colorful actress-turned-rapper-turned-actress again seems like she has the potential to make a great Storm, especially considering her background in theater. Not to mention that many of her over the top wigs already have a Storm-esque, superhero type feel to them. We have yet to witness her acting skills with our own eyes, but the real story will be told once The Other Woman hits theaters.

As for the forthcoming X-Men sequel, even if Nicki was being considered, director Bryan Singer released a photo of Halle all suited up in her Storm costume, letting it be known that the mom-to-be had signed on to reclaim her role this go ’round. But, there’s no telling what the future may hold and considering how Fox and Marvel get down with all of their sequels, prequels, remakes and reboots, chances are this won’t be the last X-Men movie to be released.

Do you think Nicki would’ve made a good Storm?

    Are they insane? There are plenty of trained black actresses that would make a great Storm. I’d be fine with Keri Washington but damn no to Nicki. The character suffered enough with Halle when Angela Bassett should have been handed the role.

    angela bassett would be better, halle is too dead to play that role Storm was a strong person, the way she sounded and carried herself, (besides being claustrophobic) Halle comes off weak and fragile, whereas Angela comes off strong and collected.

  • Shay n Scrappy 4 ever! Lmao

    I’d rather see Shangela from RPDR play Storm…

  • pretty1908

      Storm is Chris Claremont’s creation (as are most of the X-Men created between 1976-1991) and yes CC would be beyond pissed.

    I didn’t even like Halle as Storm. Nicki would have made me give up on the films entirely. My version of Storm would be more like the comics, not this person they dreamed up to appeal to people who never read them.

  • JazzyJazzyJay

    -_- yeah right

  • Gigi

    No, I do not think she would make a good Storm. Halle didn’t even make a good Storm.

    • Shay n Scrappy 4 ever! Lmao

      That comment made me think of a riddle she told in the 1st Xmen movie… ‘What happens to a toad when it gets stuck by lightening? The same that happens to everything else…’
