Back in December, Bryan Singer indicated that Anna Paquin’s Rogue had become a casualty of the crammed cast of characters in X-Men: Days of Future Past, stating that an action sequence featuring the X-Men trilogy veteran had been cut from the upcoming sequel.
Well, it seems that Rogue is going to feature after all, with Singer taking the opportunity to clarify his earlier comments:
“It was one real sequence in the movie,” Singer tells Empire (via CBM). “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.”
Are you glad that Rogue could be returning to the X-Men universe? Let us know in the comments below….
