‘X-Men’: Storm needs more movie theater, actress says

Last year, actress Kiki Layne (‘The Old Guard’) told Variety that she would love to play Storm in the upcoming ‘X-Men’ movies.

And, during an interview with Rolling Stone, the star said the character deserves a spot on the big screen and ended up being overlooked in the adaptations.

“When I was younger, I loved seeing Halle Berry as Storm, but she wasn’t as prominent as in the comics. She’s practically a goddess and I feel like she hasn’t been treated that way. Cinema underestimates how powerful it really is. “

Previously, Layne spoke to comics and took the opportunity to ask for more black representation in future comic book adaptations.

“If I wanna be in a Marvel movie?” Yes of course. I mean, I love the genre and I would take the opportunity to explore this universe… I think these movies need more representation, you know? I would love to see black women act out such stories. I am very grateful to Netflix for opening this door for me and I hope other studios will follow. “
