Lupita Nyong’o, The X-Men’s New “Storm?”

Lupita Nyong’o, The X-Men’s New “Storm?”

Artis conception of Lupita Nyong’o as “Storm”

This actually is not the first time controversy has swirled around Ms. Berry’s casting of arguably the most famous Black superhero on the planet. When the X-Men films began most fans felt she was a “whitewashed” Storm, fairer skinned and less aggressive. Some suggested veteran actress Angela Bassett would have been better suited. Fanboys and girls know Storm to be a force of nature literally and figuratively. She demands and commands as much respect as Wolverine or Cyclops and for quite awhile was their leader. Recently, fans flocked to Change.org  submitting this letter:

Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Entertainment, LLC
Marvel Entertainment, we want a new Storm for the next X-Men film starring Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o.

P.O. BOX 900
BEVERLY HILLS, CA 90213-0900
Marvel Entertainment, LLC: 212-576-4000

[Your name]

The petition has already received well over a thousand signs and is taking momentum online. No word yet from Marvel Studios or Fox on whether they will consider replacing Halle at all. Still, Lupita definitely has a strong chance of becoming the new Storm. With her Oscar winning performance and being named the most beautiful woman in the world by People Magazine she has all the gusto she needs. It is time for Storm to stop being a background character and step to the forefront of all the action. After all the the X-Men are a team, Wolverine can’t save mankind and mutantkind on his own! Do you want to see Lupita in the next X-Men film then sign the petition here: http://www.change.org/petitions/lupita-nyong-o-as-storm-lupitaforxmen-image-by-daniel-thompson
