I guess this sort of news was bound to come at some point. The size alone of the cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past pretty much guaranteed that somebody would get the short end of the stick. Sadly, according to director Bryan Singer, that person was apparently Rogue (Anna Paquin). She was set to appear in one scene in the movie but Singer says that he was left with no choice but to cut the scene (and by extension Rogue) out of the film entirely.
I feel like I should be upset about this but honestly I’m not. If she was only appearing in one scene to begin with, then I’m inclined to believe that her role wasn’t that important. This isn’t really anything new with the character since she hasn’t made an appearance of any kind since X-Men: The Last Stand and even that was minimal at best. Still, it’s rather sad that she went from being a walking MacGuffin in the first film to just being what will likely be a DVD extra in this one. Let’s hope she has a more substantial role in X-Men: Apocolypse.
Do you think Rogue getting cut out of Days of Future Past is a bad sign? Do you think any other characters will end up on the cutting room floor? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
