Could Marvel's X-Men be the next for Joker & Deadpool star Zazie Beetz?


    Zazie Beetz has already achieved great success in appearing in two highly successful comic book films as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Previously, Beetz had auditioned for the role of the storm in X-Men: Apocalypse before the role went to Alexandra Shipp. With the franchise X-Men as we know it today, Marvel Studios plans to introduce the super-mutant gang of Professor X into the MCU someday.

    When she is asked directly if she wants to play Storm in the MCU after missing the opportunity before, Zazie Beetz makes it clear she would be aboard.

    "Yeah, I think I'm finished, I think it obviously depends on the script and it depends on if I think it's a good script, I think it would be awesome Storm Storm is also essentially such an icon I think it would be a kind of big shoe to fill in. I would not want to confuse the audience too much and want to be everywhere, and now I'm doing DC too I think it would be great fun. I think that would be a good opportunity. "

    Beetz may have been passed over for Storm, though she has still found her place in a celebrity comic adaptation not soon enough , In 2018, she co-starred with Ryan Reynolds as Domino in Deadpool 2 . Domino draws inspiration directly from the Marvel comic character of the same name, known for her excellent accuracy and her mutated ability to manipulate luck. The film achieved tremendous success by grossing $ 785 million in global ticket sales, making Deadpool 2 the highest grossing R-rated film in history . This record was recently broken with the worldwide financial success of the DC-based film Joker in which, strangely enough, Beetz also plays a major role.

    Director Todd Phillips, Joker serves as the origin story for the legendary Batman adversary from DC Comics. This version of the background story of the clown Prince of Crime shows him as Arthur Fleck, a clown to hire with great dreams of becoming a successful stand-up comedian. In the movie Zazie Beetz plays his neighbor Sophie and the two of them start meeting after meeting in an elevator. After clarifying the true nature of their relationship, the fate of the Sophie character remains ambiguous, even though Phillips has since revealed exactly what happened to her after her last scene in the film. As Joker approaches $ 1 billion in worldwide ticket sales, it is now the most profitable comic adaptation ever made.

    Storm has been included in almost every adaptation of X-Men in his various media such as animated programs and video games prominently mentioned. She has also starred in six live-action films X-Men with Halle Berry playing them in four separate sections of the franchise. As noted above, Alexandra Shipp played the younger version of the character when she was introduced to X-Men: Apocalypse and re-starred in Dark Phoenix . When the X-Men finally find their way into the MCU, it seems very likely that Storm will be part of the group, and we will then have our third actress, who plays the cartoon character on a big screen ,

    Beetz is still seen on the big screen as Joker continues to play in theaters around the world. Whether Beetz makes it to the MCU as Storm or any other Marvel character, she may still be proud to be such an important part of the two highest-earning R-rated films of all time. In any case, there are no arguments here that would make a great storm. This information is from Screen Geek .
