COMIC-CON 2015: "X-Men" Star Alexandra Shipp Shows Off Bald Head For New "Storm" Role, Takes Selfie With Fantastic Four's Michael B. Jordan
We spotted YBF chick Alexandra Shipp (with Michael B. Jordan) at Comic Con over the weekend and peeped her new bald head! See pics from the event inside and get the deets on why she chopped it off.
Over the weekend, a few of our favorite YBF actors and actresses flocked to San Diego for Comic-Con to promote their latest projects. We spotted YBF starlet Alexandra Shipp among the panelists....with a shocking new look. She's bald!
As we told you a few weeks ago, Alexandra ("Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B", "Drumline: A New Beat") will be stepping into Halle Berry's shoes to recreate Halle's "Storm" role in the upcoming X-Men prequel, X-Men: Apocalypse (due May 2016).
Alexandra plays a very young "Storm" as the prequel is set 20-years before the famed X-Men films. And 20 years ago...Storm was bald!
During the panel, Alexandra (with co-stars Olivia Munn, Ben Hardy, and producer Simon Kinberg) hinted at what we can expect from young Storm and her journey. "Storm is kind of lost. She doesn't know who she is or how powerful she can be, and she finds Apocalypse who's like a God, and she's just finding her way and hopefully she can find her way to the X mansion."
FUN FACT: Michael B. Jordan (atop) is set to play Johnny Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four film. So....we're going to call the Alexandra and Michael selfie a STORM-IE!
