Janelle Monáe Would ‘Love’ To Portray Storm In Marvel Franchise

Published: Thursday 9th Jul 2020 by Ryan

Janelle Monáe could be suiting-up to save the world.

Details below:

In a new interview with Empire, the R&B songstress revealed that one of her goals in life is to play the weather-bending Storm.

She said:

“I definitely have thrown it out there. One of my dreams has always been to play Storm.” 

Previously, Storm has been portrayed by Halle Berry and Alexandra Shipp.

If given the chance, Monáe would love to continue the in their footsteps, saying:

“I don’t know if she comes in ‘Black Panther’, but it would be a dream to have her in it. I don’t know where they are with that. A lot of women have played Storm and they’ve done an exceptional job, and I would love to be in that line of artists and get to do Storm justice.”

We’d be here for it. Would you?!

The ‘I Like That’ singer recently appeared in ‘Homecoming’ season 2 on Prime Video and is set to appear in a new horror movie, ‘Antebellum,’ which is out on August 24.

    I know it’s too late, but Angela Bassett was meant for that role! She would have been exceptional!

      At least she still plays the mother. I feel like Janelle will do a great job.

      I’ve been saying this for years!!!!! Since it doesn’t seem like it’s ever going to happen, I take comfort in her role as the voodoo queen in American horror story: coven. It’s pretty much how I imagine her as storm.

    Janelle is the height of a trolls doll. Storm is a tall, statuesque African goddess. How about NO, Janelle.

    I love Janelle but I’m still in favor of Halle Berry getting to play Storm again with a more though-out and structured project.

    Her and every other black woman out there. I hope this never Happens. Not one woman has done storm justice on the big screen.

    If anyone should do it, it’s pearl thusi a real South African Queen.

    I personally think Dawn Richard would make a phenomenal storm. I saw a picture of her recently with white faux locs and was sold! She has the body, speaking voice and courage to do the stunt choreography. I hope it’s her.
