Alexandra Shipp will play Storm in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. She is playing a "younger" version of the character, given its soft reboot nature, effectively taking over from prior Storm actress Halle Berry. Shipp's Storm references her comic characters history as a Cairo theft, and is used as an antagonist in this movie alongside Psylocke/Olivia Munn, Magneto/Michael Fassbender, and Angel/Ben Hardy as Horseman of Apocalypse. Shipp's Storm is the first modern mutant to be encountered by Oscar Isaac's reawakened Apocalypse.
