Can “X-Men” fans expect a Storm movie? If it’s up to Halle Berry, hopefully yes.

The actress confirmed she would agree to do a standalone Storm film, and urged fans at Comic-Con to speak up if they want to see her in action again.

“Absolutely,” she said Thursday when asked about the prospect of a spinoff movie during the Con panel for her CBS drama “Extant,” saying that she loves her “X-Men” character. With a laugh, Berry added, “Fans have to tell Fox that that’s what they want to have happen!”

Berry is no stranger to superhero films. In addition to the “X-Men” franchise, in which she’s played Storm three times, the Oscar winner previously starred as the title character in 2004’s “Catwoman,” though it didn’t perform at the box office and received less-than-stellar reviews.

As for “X-Men,” Hugh Jackman has successfully spun into solo films with the “Wolverine” trilogy, which will see its third and final film out in 2017.

    I doubt Fox will give her a standalone film, we didn’t even get a black widow movie yet. oh well atleast Scarlett got to play LUCY and its coming back for a sequel so there’s some relief. But it’s high time that Hollywood should realize the potential of female superhero and sci-fi movies. if Lucy can do it, others also CAN.

      FOX made Ripley (Alien) one of the biggest sci-fi hero’s ever, Lucy is forgettable.

      • Ema says:

        Lucy is one of the worst “sci-fi” (let’s say that) movies ever. No story, no good performances, nothign. Let’s hope it remains where it is. I think the problem with a Storm spin-off is that it was basically treated as a support character in the movies so far (even Kitty Pride was more effective in the stories, and she has a lot less space) so it didn’t became remarkable enough for the fans. Don’t think we will ever see such a film, unless they try and promote the franchise in Apocalypse.

      • youthtvindia says:

        Lucy might be forgettable but it’s enough successful to start out a franchise. Storm wasn’t taken seriously all this time so I doubt this would happen. Although I would love to see a Storm movie being a Berry fan or even otherwise.
