honestly casting Alexandra or Zendaya for that matter as storm is the equivalent of casting keke palmer as Beyoncé in a Beyoncé biopic. can someone please explain to me how this makes sense? out of all the African American actress to play storm it came down to two mixed light skinned actresses that both have horrible track records in acting(in my opinion) and the mass majority of you not only like the idea but want the actress that could pass for Hispanic. what confuses me more is that when the suggestion of an Academy award winning actresses who looks PERFECT and is from Kenya so we know she can do the voice, comes up she's not right for the role? BUT Alexandra and Zendaya are? I would honestly rather them stop having storm in the x-man movies from now on because
A) I don't think these movies are making her more popular. I think people would know storm regardless of the movies
B) She serves no purpose in any of the x-man movies(in my opinion). she is just there for diversity and to add special affects via her lightning
C) they CAN'T cast her right. they only character to not get cast right consecutively
If you are referring to Lupita, she' can't play the role because prolly she can't due to her taking the role for a Star Wars movie. Also, Director Singer is looking for a younger actress and Lupita is already 30+.
I think the director is looking for an actress between 20-25. Any suggestions?
