Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman – kissing?
That’s right X-Men fans! The 48-year old actress and 46-year old actor were caught on camera – fully engaged in a hot and steamy kiss!
Well, that’s actually just half of the story. The full story is that their steamy kiss was scripted and they were completely in character as Wolverine and Storm when they did it.
As you can see from this deleted scene leaked online by the Wall Street Journal, Halle Berry (as Storm) makes out with Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine) in the summer blockbuster hit movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
After Kitty Pryde (played by Ellen Page) and a few other mutants explain what will happen to Wolverine when his consciousness is sent back in time, Wolverine receives a steamy yet emotional farewell kiss from his current love interest, Storm.
While the kiss between Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine and Storm would have confused some people if it was included in the original movie, it would have pleased most devoted X-Men comic book fans.
In the Ultimate Marvel comic universe, Wolverine and Storm did have a romantic relationship. The relationship is short-lived and Wolverine rejects Storm because of their age difference. According to Comic Vine, Wolverine and Storm were married with a daughter named Kendall in Earth 9811. Perhaps that was the timeline that Bryan Singer wanted to portray on-screen with this particular scene – but then changed his mind in post-production.
Without giving away any spoilers, those that have seen X-Men: Days of Future Past know the real reason why this scene would have caused a little confusion for moviegoers – especially when you think of how the movie ended.
What do you think about the kiss between Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman on-screen? Should this deleted scene be added to the extended version of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will be released next year?
