Gina Torres as Ororo Munroe (Storm).
So I was puttering around the Ororo Munroe tag and someone, somewhere (of course I’ve lost who it was now) asked about casting for Storm that isn’t Zoe Saldana or Halle Berry. Honestly, I don’t think either of them could pull off the ultimate badassery that is Storm if they write her well in subsequent X-Men movies (I am assuming she will appear somewhere because anything else is unthinkable). Halle Berry just failed epically, IMHO, and I just haven’t seen Zoe Saldana play a part that has the right attitude for a great portrayal of Storm (although Uhura has hints of it).
Now, Ororo Munroe has been my favorite comic book character since I was like… eight (that’s almost 20 years ago for those of you playing the home game). So filling those shoes is a big deal to me. A really big deal. Who do I think could really do it right? Gina Torres a.k.a. Zoe Washburn from Firefly and Serenity. Unf. Yes please.
