    According to the popular scooper MyTimeToShineHello, Janelle Monàe had discussions with Marvel for an undisclosed big role, supposedly, one of the core members of X-Men, Storm. Fans know an X-Men movie is currently in the pipeline which will start shooting later in 2025.

    While talking to The Empire in 202, Janelle Monàe revealed that it is her childhood dream to play the role of Storm in a live-action movie. She said, “I definitely have thrown it out there. One of my dreams has always been to play Storm. I don’t know if she comes in Black Panther, but it would be a dream to have her in it. I don’t know where they are with that. A lot of women have played Storm and they’ve done an exceptional job, and I would love to be in that line of artists and get to do Storm justice.”

    Marvel is currently rebuilding the X-Men and getting Janelle Monáe as Storm will be a great move. She already has a stamp of approval from fans. Previously, Halle Berry and Alexandra Shipp played the role of Storm in past X-Men movies. Monáe will be the third actress to play Ororo Munroe.

    In addition to her, Marvel is also going behind Dwayne”The Rock” Johnson to play X-Men antagonist Apocalypse. Marvel hasn’t announced anything officially about this movie so fans have to wait for more details to come out.
