Hip-Hop Rumors: Can Nerds Get Lupita Nyong’o In The X-Men?

Lupita Nyong’o has taken over the world for a couple of days and people want to make sure she has roles in this Hollyweird game. Well, the latest is a movement to get the young starlet to play Storm of the X-Men. In the comic world, Storm is African, not of mixed heritage like Halle Berry. Halle was never right for that role anyway. But, there were only a few viable candidates for a strong, Black female. But, now things have changed and there’s a movement to put Lupita in there!

The question is, can they get Marvel Entertainment and the Hollywood honchos to pay attention? That remains to be seen.

Check it out:

Marvel Entertainment we want a new Storm for the next X-Men film starring Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o.

      Actually, the hairstyle Lupita is wearing in the pic above is a hairstyle worn by the Storm character in the comic books at one time. I think she would be an excellent pick for the movie role of Storm. I think she could also work to synchronize the release of another expected movie role of some sort when the X-MEN movie is released to keep her movie going audience in hi demand of her more common role performances and to avoid type casting her to a role as a comic book character.

        You typed exactly what was on my brain bro. Excellent post.

      • RAMADAwhite

        cosign that is one of the smartest things i read today

  • i’mreloaded!

    Dat’s one fine black woman right there.

    • wickedjones

      Oh she’s cold blooded.

  • Truth Powell

    This is the stupidest article ever. Halle Berry is already Storm in the new X-Men movie.
    Lupita looks nothing like the comic version of storm. Iman that model chick is a better fit(even tho she’s too old now)

    • kixxxers

      You obviously have never read an X-Man Comic! She looks allot more like the Comic Book version of Storm than Ms. Berry!

      Halle is already getting to Old to play thee role. For the eventual reboot of the Franchise all/Most characters will be replaced with younger actors. Spiderman should give you an indication on how that works.

      • Casor_G

        The new Spider-Man was garbage. The only problem with this African chick is that she isn’t thick enough. Storm wasnt that thin

      • kixxxers

        It can work! Thick or not.
        And yeah Andrew Garfield is a Sh!tty Spidweman! I think Foxx’s Electro is Garbage and will be a disappointment as well! Captain America and X-Men look Wicked

      • Truth Powell

        Oh you internet people I tell ya….so you Obviously know me right?
        I have been buying and reading comics since 1989 you bozo. I know what I’m talking about.

      • kixxxers

        You Win!

        LOL! Not looking to pick an Internet Fight! Just voicing an opinion!

      • Truth Powell

        I feel you. My bad about the bozo thing 🙂

  • InTheNightKitchen

    I think she’d definitely be a good candidate. But some reason since I was a kid I always had this vision of Grace Jones as Storm, way before the movies were eve a thought. She too old like Iman, like some else said. Overall hope the movie is good no matter who’s in it. They’ve never really impressed me 100%

  • Troll_E_G

    She should play Princess Shuri in the new Black Panther movie.. ..let another up n comer get the storm role

  • brotha_man

    she deserves the role there are a lot of black women that deserve the role. the real question, is America Ready for her to take the role? lawd knows how many fuc*s people gave about pharrell’s all white album cover. i on the other hand think its very important America starts portraying blacks in a more positive manner.

    • Troll_E_G

      America will never show blks in a positive manner.. that’s up to us. We need to stop seeking validation from bigots n stand on our own two….we don’t need Hollywood or nba to be successful.. we just need to work in a unit… for pharell, he could of had sisters on the cover but his label heads said otherwise because they must continue the system of white supremacy. The day blacks wake up n stop begging the oppressor n take pride in themselves n create they own systems, things will change .. until then, we will always say Amerikkka needs to start…..

      • brotha_man

        not what im saying I (blacks) do take pride we do not look to the “oppressor” pledging on our hands and knees. trust, im around blacks all day every day. Im a professional brotha and alot of my peers are small business owners and educators. right now my only issue is the media portrayal of blacks in america..the sh*t u talking bout was happening in the 50-60s, today blacks do what we gotta do and strive to be positive influences in the community…at least the blacks i know.

      • Troll_E_G

        The media never changed its portrayal of Blacks so what do u exactly mean ..u may not be on your knees but hoping a system designed to oppress will one day be fair is insanity .. thats y I say We need to create Our Own system of entertainment,education,music,literacy,law enforcement etc

      • brotha_man

        jena 6, sean bell, trayvon martin, scottsboro boys. don lemon, bill o’reilly, but the issue is so deep, it would take too long to explain. everything from the lack of blacks on the sports illustrated swimsuit or other magazines, pharrell’s lack of blacks on his album cover to tyler perry using the same recycled black actors/actress……but now im complaining. bout to run a grab a coffee so i can get my work done

      • Troll_E_G

        You not complaining…u typing truth. .that’s y we need to create our Own everything

      • Phatt Killah

        WOW!!! CHUCH!!!

    Man. How come your images never work illseed? AHH used to be top notch this place is a dump now.

  • PhilTheGreat

    She has my vote.

  • soyhiphop

    Not only in america but any country populated by blacks worship whites..from beyonce to diana ross halle berry ect ect they all light skin with semi white features..alot of blacks would make jokes on beautiful women like lupita probably she so black’ve been programmed to hate your own kind and kill your own kind treat them like your worst enemy! Rappers only put exotic hoes or latinas in their videos..and what they rap about? yellow bone…black atletes get white girls black girls are demonized portrayed as ghetto shanikua dramatic section 8..and tho some black girls do act this way all dark skinned and other black girls get this label no matter who they are inside

    • Phatt Killah

      I mean that’s the way it is. Personally if i want a black chick, i want her dark as shit, if i want a white chick, she gotta be white as hell, asian, etc. That’s just me. I’m dark as sh*T but i still don’t think we should knock lightskinned blacks(who are black as well). I hate when a chick tells me she don’t like lightskinned dudes. Not that i want them either lol but that’s racist if you ask me. This mental slave grip won’t change though til more women like this are revered as beautiful too(although she can use some titties..mydamn!) She look better without make up too.

  • jd

    Thats perfect.

  • remy730

    I like it. make it happen Disney. Storms story could support a Wolverine level spin off and be so much better but you know…. we live in the real world.

    • leftcoast13

      I did not Disney had to rights to Marvel

  • Rapist on BAIL

    She’s too dark.

    i see a lot of black people calling lupita ugly, and most of these people are black americans. as a black african/brit looking from afar i can clearly how much damaged the black american mind has become, that they deny to even think that someone with the complexion is beautiful even though she is. instead of celebrating the fact that they have a true role model for their little girls, they try to tear her down because they can’t get past their own self hate. at the same these are the same people who will complain that they are not represented in hollywood. as for her being in the next x-men i’m all for it for quiet simple reasons:

    1. she’s got the acting chops, and in some ways better than halle berry
    2. storm is an african “goddess” and so is lupita
    3. with a short hair style she could easily pull off the punk storm look
    4. and most importantly storm deserves to have an origins film, lupita may be 31 but she can easily pull off 18-20 years old.

    • Papi Peligro

      Everybody got different taste bra. She has a pretty face. When she not playing a beat up role. Like Charlize Theron. But everybody got different taste. I don’t think that’s a reflection of self hate. She would make a dope storm.

    • Celz

      You are so right, my grandmother who has a litany of civil rights accolades has the exact same sentiments that you speak of…

      How ignorant is it to stereotype in a rant against stereotypes? Smdh you gotta do better brother…

    • Jehiel

      Every Black American I know is completely obsessed with how beautiful she is… Top of the game IMHO.

  • Papi Peligro

    She is going to be a good storm

  • Immortal

    I say do it. About time Storm had some physical features and she doesn’t fit the standard holllywood look. She should play Storm, and many other leading roles.

  • Sean Power

    that would take brand new reboot i don’t see fox and marvel doing that they been all successful so far
