Talking about her journey of acting in various franchise films, Berry mentioned working in X-Men films. "I mean, it's an amazing world. The mythology around the world. I think people love it. You know, I mean, it's, it's a high headcount."

She further added, "You know, sometimes you wonder is necessary but I think because of the way it's shot with the sort of surrealness of it all. I don't always think it's taken very seriously, which is, I think its saving grace, but I think it's beautifully shot."
