Rogue has been cut from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past

Dec. 20, 2013by:

Were you looking forward to the return of Rogue (Anna Paquin) in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST? Unfortunately, the character has been cut from the movie.

No, it's nothing so scandalous. A rescue scene that featured Rogue, Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellan), and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) had to be taken out of the film. This is what director Bryan Singer revealed to Entertainment Weekly:

Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. Its a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though shes in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she wont appear in it.

At least the scene will likely make it to the DVD extras when the film eventually releases in stores. Singer went on to say that the decision had nothing to do with her performance, and went on to praise her abilities as an actress saying he would definitely work with her again.

Good thing this isn't one of those situations where she isn't the last person to find out. Singer already broke the news:

She completely understood. Its very disappointing, but shes very professional and she knows that stuff happens, particularly with material you shoot early on in production. Films evolve.

Rogue was pretty useless in the last 2 X-films. Reinvent her in the next one. Pestilence perhaps?

I'm shocked people even care

She was by far the worst X-men in those movies and I'm glad she is gone. Personally I hoped she wouldn't come back after the first one.

I wish they could've traded her for Cyclops. They did a terrible job with Rogue in the movies. I always laugh at the opening scene in last stand where they're in the simulator fighting sentinels and Rogue is running around with them. What is she gonna do? She was completely useless. I kept hoping she'd get her strength and flight (and recast) but it never happened and probably never will.

Thank the Lord!

I hate to be harsh, but Paquin's Rogue is just horrible casting that went on for way too long. The fact that she was in this really bugged me. Literally hated everything about her character. Now that she's out, I can breathe a sigh of relief. Nothing against Paquin, really, but God was she wrong for Rogue.

Im fine with this, The character wasn't really interesting in the films anyways. Plus Anna wasn't someone I thought was good for the role, I would of loved someone that has a southern accent, show so real diversity to the characters. And I never thought Halle was good for Storm either.

That's a shame. I was looking forward to see what happens to her after she took the cure in X3. With the absence of Cyclops, Jean, and Nightcrawler, she was one of the few remaining cast members with a tie back to the first 2 films by Singer. Now its just Wolverine, Storm, Professor X, Magneto, and Iceman. Oddly, Singer did the same thing with Jubilee, she only got a cameo in the deleted scenes.

That's okay. I thought Anna Paquin was extremely miscasted as Rogue. She's a really good actress, but I never saw her as one of Singer's more positive choices with his films.

Hopefully she'll be in Apocalypse - True Blood will be over by then and she'll have more time to film.

Fine by me

I always thought Rogue, among other characters that were under developed, was the weakest after the first X-Men film. I thought Anna Paquin was good as the Rogue character before obtaining super strength and flying abilities. But there's only so little you can do with her before then. While I love Bryan Singers X-Men film universe I can't wait for the reboot. Then we'll get to see Cyclops being the true leader, a more strong Storm, Rogue thats true to the comics, Gambit and the real Dark

I guess the cast might be a little too cluttered. I'm glad they didn't cut Shadowcat.

o:

They need to start phasing out some characters. There's no reason for Magneto to be in everything.

Well, at least we get a glimpse of her in the trailer that's currently out.

Fact is, Singer never developed Rogue into who she could truly be. In his otherwise great couple of X-Men films full of homeruns, Rogue was his huge swing and miss. A damn shame too as she's a classic character, one of the great female heroes in Marvel's canon.

So, I take it her character has an off screen death?
