    “It’s The Only Marvel Character That I’ve…”: ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Star DeWanda Wise Says She Is Interested In Playing X-Men’s Storm 

    DeWanda Wise almost lost her golden entry ticket into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the 2019 ‘Captain Marvel’ starring Brie Larson, Wise was initially reeled in to play the role of Maria Rambeau, which later passed on to Lashana Lynch.

    Due to a scheduling conflict, DeWanda Wise had to back down from the Marvel project, but now the actress has set eyes on the role of X-Men’s mutant, Storm.

    Maybe letting go of Maria Rambeau worked in the favour of the ‘Imaginary’ star. While talking to Daniel Merrifield, the host of The Movie Dwebb, Wise expressed her interest in playing X-Men’s most iconic mutant.

    When the host asked if her fans would ever see her in a Marvel suit-up, Wise replied, “Storm is the only Marvel character I’m interested in.”

    DeWanda Wise is looking forward to embodying the live-action version of the electromagnet mutant that, she further clarified saying, “It’s the only Marvel character that I’ve ever been interested in.” In the Fox’s X-Men: The Last Stand, the role was helmed by Halle Berry.

    MCU Has The Advantage To Re-Write Storm’s Story


    With a change in the cast, the Marvel Cinematic Universe can also fix the mistakes that were made by Fox– especially overlooking the character growth of Halle Berry’s Storm. It is an obvious statement that Storm is a notable ‘X-Men’ mutant who has been constantly ignored in the live-action adaptations.

    In the original X-Men trilogy, her role is often overshadowed by the love triangle of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine. A lot of her potential and abilities were put to waste by focusing on romance.

    But now MCU has the chance to make things right. It can rediscover Storm by emphasizing on his origin story, making her the central figure. Similar to the ‘Avengers’ story, Marvel can begin the X-Men by including their past initially, by providing solo films.
