Halle Berry in costume as Storm for "X-Men: Days of Future Past." (Bryan Singer / Twitter / April 22, 2013)
For those of us up late at night concerned about Halle Berry's high-risk pregnancy at age 46, fear not. It appears that the pregnancy, at the very least, will not affect her role in the upcoming "X-Men" film.
As if that makes anything any better.
Director Bryan Singer teased fans with Berry's return to the franchise in a tweeted photo of the Oscar-winning actress smiling in her all-black costume. Berry confirmed her appearance in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" on "The Tonight Show" in March, and she'll reprise her role as the weather-manipulating mutant Storm.
"Storm watch #HalleBerry #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast," Singer
The film is based on one of the most well-known story lines of the "Uncanny X-Men" comic books, and this installment sees the mutants traveling in time to change a major historical event that could globally influence both man and mutants, according to the film's synopsis. That explains why we're seeing the franchise's original actors from 2000 to 2006 mash up with those of the 2011 prequel "X-Men: First Class."

HALLE Berry hides her baby bump as she poses on the set of the new X-Men film.Costume designers on the Marvel movie must have gone in to overdrive when she announced last month she was pregnant - Halle's character, Storm, is renowned for her skin-tight leather catsuit as well as for her superpowers.
But director Bryan Singer seems happy with the result – tweeting the first picture of the 46-year-old beauty on set.
And he wrote: “Storm watch #HalleBerry #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast.”
The Oscar-winning actress, who announced she was expecting a baby with fiance Oliver Martinez, hid her growing tum under a thick utility belt.
The iconic outfit has changed dramatically from the sleek, flat-fronted suit of the original X-Men movie, which showed every curve of her body.
It now features a more jacket style top with short sleeves, bigger shoulder-pads and side panels.
And a flap has been added at the waist, along with the belt, to disguise her blooming figure.
Storm’s hair has also evolved – swapping the long silver locks for a short tousled look.
Shooting on the seventh X-Men movie began last week and the tweeted picture suggests Halle’s scenes have been pulled forward to shoot first, because of her impending arrival.
It is also rumoured that Storm’s more physical fight scenes have been dropped.
Halle is already mum to five-year-old Nahla, by ex Gabriel Aubrey.
The new movie includes a host of past X-Men stars including Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart.
Hugh Jackman – who plays Wolverine – will also be the only actor to appear in the entire X-Men series.

Halle Berry still has more than a few months to go in her pregnancy but the star is obviously already very excited.
The 46-year-old snuck away from filming duties on Sunday in Quebec, Canada, to go toy shopping.
The star spent most of her day off at the Oink Oink shop in Westmount no doubt picking out some great presents for her baby - when it arrives - and for her daughter Nahala.

The mother of one even went to the basement of the store to look at their selection of books and finally emerged with three bags full of purchases.
Halle kept her look - and bump - low key for her shopping adventure.
The 46-year-old wore loose distressed and torn jeans, a baggy T-shirt and a grey cardigan that was pinned at the shoulder to conceal her pregnancy.

Halle accessorised the look with buckled ankle boots and a baggy cap.
The actress is presently in Montreal filming X-Men: Days of Future Past and is expected to be there for at least three months.
While no doubt glad to be reprising her role as Storm, being in the city of Montreal may bring up some memories the a Oscar winner would rather forget as her ex Gabriel Aubry - whom she has been locked in a vicious custody battle with - as he was born there.

Things have been so bad that her new fiance - and father to her unborn child - Olivier Martinez ended up in a brutal beat down fight with Halle's ex.

However, not all of Halle's ex boyfriends are as a bigger problem for the actress as Gabriel.
On Sunday, Shemar Moore told of his love for the Monster's Ball star when they dated in 1997.
Speaking about the year long relationship to BET he gushed: 'She was the first woman to really knock my socks off.'
'I fell hard for Halle. A lot of people now know we dated, but we had to keep it hush-hush at the time because she was fresh off her divorce from David Justice. I'm still grateful for that relationship.
'I was smitten not just because of who she was, but because we were so similar in so many ways. She was biracial, she was kind of going through the same things I was in Hollywood.
'Toni (Braxton) was a fun ride, but Halle was a necessary experience. It made me much stronger as a man, and knowing the caliber of woman I want in the future.'
Despite Halle's 'tough ride' with men following their time together, the Criminal Minds star revealed he does not have nay regrets about letting Halle go.
'No, none at all. She's a tough cookie. I'm glad she's got a family now. If this love she's got with this guy is real, then that's what she needs.'
