Simon Kinberg On X-Men: Apocalypse Re-Casting Speculation
Writer discusses possibility of more characters being played by new actors...
The lead writer-producer on the X-Men movie franchise has hinted that Halle Berry's character Storm could be re-cast in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Speaking to Yahoo!, Simon Kinberg admitted that 20th Century Fox had been pondering whether to re-cast a number of familiar superheroes.
"It'd be very hard to do, because Halle, Famke and Jimmy and others have done such wonderful jobs of bringing those characters to life," he said.
"But I also would have said before First Class that there would be no actors who can stand alongside Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart."
James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have now played Professor Xavier and Magneto in several X-Men movies.
And Kinberg suggested they would go on, adding: "In Apocalypse, it will really be the continuation of the 'past' of Days of Future Past."
The new film is set for release in May 2016.
