Halle Berry talks Storm, ‘X-Men’ solo film, ‘Extant’ season 2, SDCC 2015

Halle Berry returns to San Diego Comic Con after two years to previwe season 2 of hit CBS show Extant. Berry is a fan favorite with roles in Gothika, The Call and of course, Storm in the X-Men franchise, who she’d love to play again.

“In a heartbeat I would do a Storm movie”, Berry said in an interview with Deadline. “I love that character through and through. So if that ever became an opportunity for me if it’s before I’m 65-years old I would absolutely do that.”

“If the fans want that the fans need to speak up and I’m sure it would be a possibility. If Fox felt like they could make money off of a Storm movie I’m sure they would do it.”

Berry is expected to appear at Fox’s July 11 big-screen panel where, 15 years after the first X-Men flick laid some of the foundations of the superhero movie resurrection, footage from the home entertainment X-Men: Days Of Future Past– The Rogue Cut will be shown.

On changing up things on Extant, Berry said: “It’s a brand new show. As often happens with the first season of a show, we had to figure out what we were meant to be. When I signed on to do Extant, we had a pilot. We didn’t have the 12 subsequent shows, so it was the idea of a pilot….”

“This year we got a whole reboot, we got new writers, new show runners, new actors. It’s a lot edgier this year. Its still sci-fi but it’s not so latent with the science fiction of it all that we forget about the characters. This year it’s character-driven, it’s sexy. There are storylines all colliding together that give Extant some meat and some juice still with all the wonder of the future, with all the gadgets of the future. It feels very modern and very fresh. We’re still dealing with aliens, other life forms from other universes. We’re dealing with AIs, which we call humanics, robots and their uprising and what would actually happen if that were to come to pass. So the story is much more dramatic and I think people will connect to in a deeper way.”

Rogue Cut is set for a full screening Saturday night at San Diego’s Reading Theatre.
