Director Bryan Singer says Anna Paquin's Rogue will appear in X-Men: DOFP

01.30.2014

Last month Bryan Singer said the one scene featuring Anna Paquin as Rogue had been cut from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, but she appeared on an Empire cover that was released a few days ago. So what's the deal? Is she in it, or not?

Kind of, says Bryan Singer. In an interview with Empire, Singer says although the scene with Rogue has been cut, she will still appear in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

"It does not mean that we won't see her in the film. Also, I hope to make the sequence available on the DVD as she was quite wonderful in it. She is an important part of the X-Men family. I 'm very pleased she will remain as one of Empire's anniversary covers."

Writer Simon Kinberg on why the scene was cut from the film:

"It was one real sequence in the movie. We felt like it was taking tension out of the main story drive."

It sounds like Rogue will appear in the film, but only in the background of some scenes. That should make some fans happy, although most of you seemed pretty thrilled she wasn't going to be in the upcoming movie when the news was first announced. At least we'll (probably) be able to check out the sequence when X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is released on DVD and Blu-ray.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will hit theaters on May 23rd, 2014.

Paquin did a fine job, but she was Rogue in name and ability only.

Considering she was the main plot device of the first two movies

Ignoring her now would just be crap writing. I'm not saying MAKE her a plot device, but you have to acknowledge her.

They may not have made the character as badass as she could be, but it's not like it'll hurt the film if she's in some scenes helping out as part of the group. Glad the other cut scene will be on the DVD, as with so many characters I hope there is a good amount of extra scenes in the DVD.

I like Anna Paquin as an actress

so I was sad to hear she was cut from the film. I hope Singer's messing with us and that she has a bigger role than they're admitting.

If she is in there maybe she'll finally get a bigger BETTER part. In the first X-men she is just a literal plot device. She was a little better in X2. Hopefully she won't just be a background character in X-men DOFP.

I Feel Better Now

I was quite disappointed when it was announced that Anna Paquin was cut out of the film. I was really excited that a lot of the original cast was returning and I was looking forward to seeing Anna back too. Now, even though she's only going to be seen in the background, I'm very happy that she will still be in the movie.

thats awesome!!

When I was a kid you could never have a sequel to a movie with which a sub-character that is a decent sized movie star or celebrity, be in the background without having a major part in the film. So to have lots of characters in the movie and some just in the background as supporting characters is just plain awesome.....i love knowing these characters are just there in some capacity in the background just doing there thing.....also to just have characters doing those things could lead to a

But here's to hoping there's many more supporting characters from other movies that get thrown in der

Spoiler: She dies in the first 5 mins

Like she has anything useful against a Sentinel at this point if she didn't absorb anyone powerful enough in between.

Agree, and that her survival at this point is confusing since someone like Nightcrawler could literally teleport anywhere.

But there is a rumor out there that the Trask company is experimenting on her to take her powers thus why the whole escape scene is in there.

It will be great to have her in the film. With the size and scope of the movie it must have been hard to fit all of these characters in without sacrificing story (which it sounds like it was their main concern for cutting her from the sequence). I mean, with that many characters it's hard to find something for everyone to do. And within the entire X-Men catalogue, Rogue isn't exactly the best go-to character for an action sequence. So having her in the background talking about how her

I want her to be in the film in some capacity since her character was one of the first character's to appear in the franchise from the start.

But I do think she was terribly miscasted. One of the few problems I have with Singer's X-Men films.

My guess

Is that there's a scene regarding the drama that is her, Iceman and Kitty Pryde. Bringing that up in this movie doesn't really have a point so if it's the case I understand why it was cut.

So not the escape scene with Magneto and Iceman, but probably standing in the background doing nothing, super. Just an observation, what's that floating aircraft in the background of Rogue?
