This is important because listening to the demands of your consumer base means more than your own personal casting choices. She has the accent, the look, and the acting chops to play Storm as the comic book intended.  Please kindly take this into consideration and respect the demand of Marvel consumers and fans of this amazing franchise.  This petition was started based on the overwhelming responses to my tweet "I volunteer as tribute to lead a social media charge to get Lupita cast as Storm!"

Disclaimer: This petition is not anti-Halle Berry.  This is a petition to illustrate that fandom communities should also have a voice when casting decisions are made of their favorite superheroes and heroines.  Halle Berry is a supreme actress and in no way is this petition meant to disrespect her.  Storm deserves her own origin film and Lupita would be the perfect fit.

Or shall we say...the perfect Storm.

      Im signing because Halle Berry is unbearable to watch as storm or any other role for that matter. She ruined the X-Men franchise in my opinion.

      She's looks, sounds and can most definately act the part. Born to do it! Plus, I also think she'll have a blast doing it among some more serious roles.

      Dear Marvel,

      Lupita would play a perfect Teenage Storm....We need a Grown Tall Adult Storm. I am sure their are many African Actresses lets Hustle. Lupita is perfect for the Young Storm... Halle can remain as cat woman. I still think she did an excellent job. Also, Jessica Biel would play the Perfect Adult Flying Rogue.

      I would love to see her play storm. She is an amazing actress and deserves the role.

      I liked Halle Berry in the role, but Lupita would be perfect as well!
