Janelle Monae is campaigning to play X-Men character, Storm.
In the comic book, Storm and Black Panther’s King T’Challa are married and then they divorce. So it makes sense that she approached Black Panther film director, Ryan Coogler about making her debut appearance in Wakanda.
In a recent interview, Janelle said, I definitely have thrown it out there. One of my dreams has always been to play Storm. I don’t know if she comes in Black Panther but it would be a dream to have her in it.
Fans have long complained that Storm doesn’t get the respect she deserves. Fans started a petition for Pose star Dominique Jackson aka Elektra, to play Storm. The petition on Change.org has 20,000 signatures.
Who would you like to see play Storm?
