10 Things You Didn’t Know About Halle Berry
7. 1st actress to star as two different Super-hero characters for two different Comic Companies.
In 2000, Berry linked up with a relatively new to film Marvel Studios to bring audiences “X-Men.” In this action film revolving around a private academy for mutants that doubles as a superhero team recruitment office, Berry brings Ororo Monroe’s weather channeling abilities to the bring screen. The critical success of early Marvel films such as “Blade” and “X-Men” definitely helped pave the way for the super-hero centric box-office we have come to know and love.
Four years later in 2004, Berry did what no actress has done before and crossed Comic companies to join DC’s attempt at “Catwoman.” The film’s loose basis on the DC Comics character of the same name, who is traditionally an anti-heroine and love interest of the superhero Batman, was sound on paper. The problem was that Berry’s beauty was not enough to carry this awkward and gimmick littered cinematic presentation. The filmed bombed at the box office and also garnered Berry a Razzie for Worst Actress in 2005.
