The X-Men Movie Universe is known for many continuity problems, but apparently there are some big continuity secrets as well.
Speaking to People, Berry said:
Storm and Logan used to be lovers. It’s true. Storm and Logan had a thing... When he really decided that Jean Grey was his [love] … that caused a problem. The having two girls at once thing, that didn’t work for … that doesn’t work for Storm.
As for the type of relationship Storm and Logan had? Berry describes it as "wonderful... for a time."
The actress is also sure to remind the interviewer (and fans) that this is more than just imagined backstory between actors: In a deleted scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past, the future versions of Storm and Wolverine actually share a kiss before they split up for their suicide missions to change the past and erase the nightmarish future timeline they're living in.
You can check out that big moment, below:
Like so many things in X-Men continuity, the exact timing of when the Storm/Wolverine romance took place is unclear.
Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman are said to have kept the material for their shared backstory secret to fuel the moment in Days of Future Past when Wolverine and Storm reveal their status as lovers. Berry explained the origin of the romance like this:
“I joke in the movies, I’m like, ‘How come nobody’s loving on Storm.’ Like what’s wrong with Storm? Nobody is checking for Storm. So, we decided that Storm and Logan had a thing, and then Jean came and messed that up.”
It's the final part of the statement that will throw a lot fans (the ones worried about continuity) off. There's not really a moment in the known continuity of the X-Men movies where Jean Grey could "come in" and mess up a thing between Logan and Storm except when Jean returned from the dead as Dark Phoenix in X-Men: The Last Stand and Logan was forced to put her down. After that, Logan was heartbroken and sought isolation, leading to the two-part story of The Wolverine and Logan. Clearly, he would've never gone back to Storm - except in the twisted future depicted in Days of Future Past.
Whatever the case, this instance of "kiss and tell" from Halle Berry will be even more buzzworthy than her recent feat of drinking more whiskey than her Kingsman co-stars.
The X-Men will return in X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018; however, Halle Berry won't be appearing in that film. A younger version of Storm is now played by actress Alexandra Shipp.
