Alexandra Shipp Clarifies Comments About Storm Joining Marvel Universe, Proposes a Standalone Movie

Alexandra Shipp is speaking out to clarify comments that she made at WonderCon about her X-Men character Storm.

The 27-year-old actress was asked for her thoughts on Storm and the other X-Men characters joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that Disney owns Fox.

“I would and I wouldn’t (like it), because Storm barely has anything to say as it is. I don’t know about you all (other actors) but like we never talk. So it would be really nice if we weren’t piled into yet another jam packed cast, in which you only see me in the back of the shot like f–king sasquatch,” she said (via Comic Book Movie).

Alexandra also responded to fans hoping for a Storm and Black Panther romance.

“No! No, I don’t think Storm needs T’Challa, and I think she needs her own movie! It doesn’t have to be me, it just needs to be made. A woman does not need a man in order to give her validity and she has also been around longer than him.”

Now, Alexandra is speaking out in a statement on Instagram after receiving some backlash for her comments.

'Dark Phoenix' Releases New Trailer & Poster - Watch Here!

The new trailer for the upcoming Dark Phoenix movie has been released – and Sophie Turner is showing off her powers!

In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey (Turner). During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

The film also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters and Jessica Chastain.

Oscar Isaac Calls Experience on 'X-Men' Movie 'Excruciating'

Oscar Isaac is opening up about his experience working on the movie X-Men: Apocalypse and why it was an “excruciating” process.

The 39-year-old actor, who has a bit role in the new movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, talked about playing En Sabah Nur / Apocalypse in a video interview with GQ.

Apocalypse, that was excruciating,” Oscar said. “I didn’t know when I said yes that that was what was going to be happening. That I was going to be encased in glue, latex, and a 40-pound suit, that I had to wear a cooling mechanism at all times. I couldn’t move my head, ever.”

Oscar said one of the reasons he did the movie was to work with the cast, including Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender. But, he could barely even see them when he was in costume.

“I couldn’t move my head. And I had to sit on a specially designed saddle, because that’s the only thing I could really sit on, and I would be rolled into a cooling tent in-between takes. And so I just wouldn’t ever talk to anybody, and I was just gonna be sitting and I couldn’t really move, and like, sweating inside the mask and the helmet,” he said. “And then getting it off was the worst part, because they just had to kind of scrape it off for hours and hours. So, that was X-Men: Apocalypse.”
