X-Men First Class line up

Halle Berry as StormIf you’ve been following the casting updates for X-Men: Days of Future Past, then you might be wondering how all these characters are going to be able to fit into the same movie. Director Bryan Singer has quite the job ahead of him in manning a massive ensemble cast and he’s just added two more. First, French actor Omar Sy, best known for his role in The Intouchables, has been cast as a yet-to-be-known character. Second, after much speculation, Halle Berry has officially signed on to return to the X-Men franchise as beloved character Storm. Many of her former cast mates from the original X-Men trilogy have already agreed to come back, such as Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Ian McKellen, but we have been hanging on to see if Storm would be joining them. Now we can stop worrying about that and start speculating who the new characters are going to be.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released in theaters July 18, 2014. Excited by Storm’s return? Wondering who Omar Sy will play? Let us know in the comments below!
