" Janelle Monae is only 5 foot tall. Isn't Storm almost 6 foot tall?"

If Wolverine can be played by a  6 foot Hugh Jackman, they can have a shorter person play Storm.

For comparison, as a 6' man, I feel dwarfed by guys who stand next to me at
6'2" (like my son!)

A 6'5" man is a giant!

Height is far from the be-all and end-all when it comes to the movies. I think Janelle Monae is talented enough to do whatever she wants and would do justice to the role. Perfect? No, probably not, but she could rock it. Mostly with that Grace Jones stare.

Mentioning height in movies, I do get slightly distracted when I see the creative ways put forth for the likes of Tom Cruise or Robert Downey jr., trying to keep them slightly taller then some of their co-stars. Especially female co-stars. Gwyneth Paltrow seemed to be wearing flats or bare footed when next to Tony Stark in those Marvel movies.

Sorry folks, you may return to your discussion!
