Keke Palmer is reportedly on Marvel Studios’ wishlist for a major role, as per industry insider Daniel Richtman. While the exact character remains under wraps, speculation has swirled online, with many fans championing Storm, the iconic weather-wielding X-Men leader, as the perfect fit for Palmer’s talents.

Storm, Ororo Munroe, is a regal mutant with the power to manipulate the very forces of nature. A powerful figure in X-Men lore, she’s been portrayed by Halle Berry in several films. However, with the X-Men officially entering the MCU, there’s an opening for a fresh take on the character.

Enter Keke Palmer. Her charismatic presence and ability to command the screen are undeniable, qualities that perfectly embody Storm’s leadership. Further, what truly makes Palmer a phenomenal fit for Storm is the depth she can bring to the character. Storm’s journey is one of immense personal growth, from a young woman grappling with her powers and place in the world to a confident leader fighting for justice and equality. Palmer’s dramatic range, as showcased in films like “Akeelah and the Bee” and “The Netherground”, allows her to portray both Storm’s vulnerability and her unwavering strength.

While Storm undoubtedly stands out as a perfect fit for Keke Palmer’s talents in the MCU, another X-Men character, Rogue, also emerges as a strong contender. Rogue, Anna Marie LeBeau, possesses the ability to absorb the memories and powers of anyone she touches. Originally a villain, Rogue’s story arc is one of redemption and self-discovery, making her a complex and compelling character.

Further, even Palmer herself showed much interest in portraying Rogue in the MCU. In a previous interview with Comicbook, she revealed that she was ready to take on the role of the character any day.

“That’s confidential, sugar. No, I’m kidding. I don’t know. I just know that the fans, the way that the fans have me booked, honey, online, I got to do a gig every week. So if we’re adding Marvel to it, hey, let’s do it. I’m ready for Rogue.”
