Naturi Naughton’s New Movie Role

According to Shadow & Act, singer/actress Naturi Naughton has landed a role in “The Wolverine,” the follow-up to 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

The former 3LW member, who has starred in several movies since being unceremoniously kicked out of the group back in 2002, is rumored to be playing the role of Cecilia Reyes, a doctor and former X-Men member whose mutant ability is to project an impenetrable force field around her body.

“The Wolverine” is reportedly in pre-production and set for a summer 2012 release date.


  1. Yes I am a comic enthusiast and the x men are my favorites , good for naturi

  2. I am happy for her. She is taking Hollyweird quietly by storm, role after role after role. I love the progression. 🙂 Good luck!

  3. This information was noted weeks ago then again everything is late on this site.

  4. Congrats to her on getting these big Hollywood productions. And hopefully more to come.

  5. I am happy for Naturi, she really is taking Hollywood by storm along with Zoe Saldana. Big ups to her cause I remember when she was kicked out of 3LW and both she and the other girls came on 106th & Park separately to talk about the breakup. It was obvious that Naturi was the outcast and was treated unfairly. There were allegations that TPTB wanted Naturi to be slutty because she was darker and her family werent having it. I am just happy that she got the last laugh with a budding acting career playing non-stereotyped roles. Whose tricking themselves out now…?

  6. i like the way she just does her thing and you don’t hear too much about her which makes her even more interesting. i wish her the best

  7. Much respect to Naturi for steadily working on her career. I also love some X-men so I will be looking out for her. I sure hope the bring back the original theme song from the cartoon show!

  8. Good for her!!!…The Playboy Series on NBC this Fall…this X-Men role is going to really put her over…success is the best revenge!

    Naturi and Yaya are really quietly blazing Hollywood…along with Zoe Saldano…action films and outrageous comedies are what’s owning the box office right now!

    Go Naturi!!!

    What does TPTB mean? And what did they want her to be. That was censored so I have no idea what you said.

  10. Good job her and Zoe are ones to watch along with Rutina Wesley and lisa Bonet’s man.

  11. Congratulations to the beautiful Naturi Naughton. May many more blessings come your way.

  12. “The powers that be” :)They wanted her image to be more promiscuous, loud, and ghetto. I remember her saying that it went against how she was brought up. I think I read it in Sister2sister. Raven S. had problems working with the other girls because of their attitude which prevented her from working any further with Cheetah Girls.

    Oh, thanks. They did the same thing to the girl from 702, right? I remember hearing she bounced cuz people were messing with her about her complexion. I don’t know if that’s true but yeah.

  14. In reference to 702 if that is true than that is too bad because that girl (darker skinned one) had a great voice, so did the lead singer of Isysis (cant spell)”If I cant have you, I’ll just be single for the rest of my life”. I love girl groups and I hope they come back in style!

  15. @ blacksista
    Yeah I remember Isyss(I think that’s it). I didn’t know there was trouble in that group. Geez.
