Halle Berry confirmed that she would be returning to her iconic role as Storm in the newest film in the "X-Men" franchise. She was appearing on "The Tonight Show" where she said she agreed to do it because it's a great role and -- "those residual checks don’t hurt," she added with a laugh.

"It’s a character that I love and the fans really love the whole series," Berry said. "They really love Storm. It’s like family. It’s fun to get back together with Hugh and everybody. It’s good fun."

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is heading into production soon for a projected release date in the summer of 2014. And Berry won't be the only familiar face returning to the franchise. Expect to see the returns of Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page and Anna Paquin as well.
