UPDATE: Berry’s spidey-senses were tingling correctly (I know, I know, Spider-Man is in a different universe). Her return for X-Men: Days of Future Past has just been confirmed by Deadline

EARLIER: It’s a big weekend for X-Men fans. First, the director of the upcoming sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer tweeted (below) that French actor Omar Sy from critical hit The Intouchables will join the film. And now, Halle Berry, who fans will remember as Storm in the original X-Men movies, says she “thinks” she’s in for the new movie.

During the junket for her new flick The Call, Berry told Access Hollywood that she’s “in” for the movie, adding the super safe follow-up: “I think I’m in.” Of course, it’s not all that unlikely that Berry would return to reprise her explosive role in Singer’s followup to X-Men: First Class. with Patrick Stewart returning to play his signature role as Professor Charles Xavier, Hugh Jackman coming back as Wolverine, and Anna Paquin returning as Rogue, it would seem a little lonely without Berry’s beloved lady mutant along for the ride. Reps for Berry could not be reached for confirmation at the time of publication.

As for Sy, his role remains shrouded in mystery, as Singer only managed to reveal the fact that the actor will be in the film. Perhaps there’s a mutant role just primed and ready for the French star?

Sy and (potentially) Berry join an already robust cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past, including Stewart, Jackman, Paquin, Ellen Paige, Sir Ian McKellan, and Jennifer Lawrence to name a few.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
