Kiki Layne, agents and managers 'Actively Plotting' for her to be Storm


With the Disney aquesition of Fox's assets, the mutants will be fully and properly integrated into the MCU at long last. "If Beale Street Could Talk" star Kiki Layne wants the part when it's all done in probably 2020, let alone development, so you might see Storm in a movie in like 2022.

“She was an image of myself, of a powerful chocolate black woman, and I just think that’s an amazing image to have and I really want to play Storm,” Layne said.
"Storm" is currently being played by Alexandra Shipp who is apparently ignoring this news, and you can see her in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix", possibly hitting theaters June 7th.

See Layne next in the film "Native Son" alongside other Barry Jenkins actor-alumni Ashton Sanders, premiering at Sundance on the 24th of Jan.

EDIT: Shipp is doing this and people are just NOT having it.
