Alexandra Shipp is X-Men’s New Storm

Ok, so if we’re keeping things all the way 100, Drumline: A New Beat and Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B didn’t quite work out for Alexandra Shipp. But recently, she nabbed the role of Storm in the X-Men prequel, X-Men: Apocolypse, which is set to hit theaters in 2016. Not only that, but this 23-year-old starlet also has a part in the upcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton, in which she’ll play young Ice Cube’s wife.

Looks like Alexandra is already prepping for her X-Men role (see below) and we’re thinking she has what it takes to kill it on the big screen. 

What do y’all think? Is Alexandra a good pick to play Storm? What do you think about her playing the wife of a young Ice Cube? You know what to do: Leave your thoughts in the comments!
