Anna Paquin Cut From Newest X-Men FilmBy: Tina Volpe - December 22, 2013
Anna Paquin’s character “Rogue” will not be making an appearance in the upcoming Marvel movie, “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Not a lot of explanation is available, but It seems director Bryan Singer axed a rescue scene involving Magneto, Professor X, Iceman and Rogue, from the final film. This was the only scene that Paquin’s character appeared, so she is out.
As director Singer explained, “It’s 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 … Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”
Hypable had to say this about the Paquin cut: “It’s almost ironic considering Singer has stuffed every single character that’s ever existed in an X-Men film into Days of Future Past. Anna Paquin, who is much more popular now due to her role on True Blood, apparently only had one scene in the film.”
