Vaughn was initially hired for the second sequel, but Halle Berry had not officially signed on. 

During pre-production, he discovered a revised script containing an added scene for Halle's character, Storm. 

The studio head assured Vaughn not to worry about it, but he pressed on, leading to a shocking revelation. 

Vaughn learned that the script was tailored to Halle's preferences, but only if she signed the contract. 

The plan was to include Halle's desired scene temporarily, only to discard it once she committed. 

Vaughn expressed his dismay, contemplating the mistreatment of an Oscar-winning actress who played Storm.
