Director Bryan Singer says in interview her one scene was cut from the film

While several castmembers from past installments of the “X-Men” franchise will return to the series next summer in Fox’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” it looks like there is at least one member that will miss the reunion.

In an interview with EW, director Bryan Singer has revealed he had to cut a sequence from the film that contained the only screen time for Anna Paquin’s Rogue character. (The “True Blood” star had only shot a couple days worth of footage).

Singer says in the interview the reason for the cut had to with the film already having so much in it and the sequence ultimately feeling unnecessary. He goes on to add that it probably will be included on the DVD with other deleted scenes.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” bows on May 23, 2014.

    Anna has such small bumps on her chest that she should not be in TV anyway. She is built like a man. She should stuff oranges or grapefruit in her top if she wants any roles. Then maybe grab her father by his brown hole and taste it. Then enjoy his seed.

  3. Good! Never liked the actress. Rogue is cool, but not in the movies.

  4. Junie says:

    Very disappointed! liked Paquin as Rogue. She is an interesting actress to watch.

  5. Milly says:

    She was a big part of the other films.

    This news really disappoints me, but it happens all the time in films. It’s even worse news because she showed up at the Comic-Con panel and is referenced in the first trailer. As long as we get to see it in the DVD then I’m content. But I’m a bit skeptical of this film after hearing she was only in one scene. Makes me wonder how big and important the other original cast roles are in this film. Bryan Singer, I’m very hopeful for DOFP but if you let me down…I will turn away from the X-MEN franchise until the rights are given back to Marvel!

    Shame to hear about this, I thought Rogue was one of best things about the original trilogy, despite even her relative lack of screen time – I honestly don’t think that this series has been handled well overall, in terms of how its balanced the involvement of its characters.

  8. Heeiah says:

    Urgh. She’s so mediocre. Amazing as a child actor, not that deep, nor that evocative as an adult.

  9. Daron says:

    Wow. I was really looking forward to see Rogue again. Seeing Iceman without Rouge would seem implausible. Anna Paquin should sue 20th Centray Fox if her face is not shown.

      Bobby and Rogue never really had a relationship like that in the comics, so not seeing them together in the films will be just fine. It really won’t take anything away from the overall story. Bobby actually had a thing with Kitty (Shadowcat), and based on the trailer it looks like they’re finally going to explore that – or at least I hope they do since it’s canon.

      As for the remarks about not a lot of Rogue in the movie, she didn’t really play that big of a role as the original story in the comics focused around Kitty. She was the one who had her adult, future self go back and transfer her mind into her younger, present self because of the rise of the Sentinels and how Mystique with her Brotherhood of Evil Mutants had Senator Robert Kelly assassinated. The way the movie is presenting it is completely different from canon, and honestly will be a bit of an abomination for those who are massive fans of the comic series.
