X-Men DOFP: Anna Paquin's Rogue Has Been Cut From the Film

Now this comes as a shocker but Bryan Singer has confirmed that Rogue (Anna Paquin) will NOT appear in the film come next May. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bryan Singer went on to talk about why he had to cut her sequence in the film and Paquin's response.

“Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous,” explains Singer. “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. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.” 

“She did a fantastic job,” says the director. “She was awesome in the sequence. She’s a brilliant actress. I would work with her in a heartbeat.” She completely understood,” he says. “It’s very disappointing, but she’s very professional and she knows that stuff happens, particularly with material you shoot early on in production. Films evolve.”

Singer is still currently editing the film and writing the next installment X-Men Apocalypse which comes to theaters in 2016.
