Via his official Twitter page, director Bryan Singer reveals the very first look at actress Halle Berry suiting up once more as the element goddess and female mutant Storm for the new X-Flick "X-Men: Days Of Future Past"! The sequel sees the return of several stars from the X-Men film franchise as the story revolves around a dark future which two realities must prevent from happening. Returning X-Men alum include Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Ian McKellen as Magneto, James McAvoy as Young Professor X, and Michael Fassbender as Young Magneto.
Berry's new costume may possibly play into the dark alternate reality previously mentioned, where mutants are enslaved and being eliminated by Sentinels led by their sentient production unit and creator Master Mold. The story is based on Chris Claremont and John Byrne's 1981 classic arc "Days Of Future Past", with Singer and 20th Century Fox adapting elements from it into the film version.
Despite reports that Berry has been worried about her pregnancy posing problems for shooting, it doesn't seem to be the case here in this photo. She looks good for her return as Ororo Munroe, and here's hoping we see more X-Stuff in the months to come.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is slated for release on July 18, 2014.
