Bryan Singer On Rogue's Removal From X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer comments on his decision to cut Rogue's (Anna Paquin) action sequence from the film. "It does not mean that we won't see her in the film," says the X-Men director.

It was recently revealed that Bryan Singer decided to leave a big action scene showcasing Anna Paquin's Rogue on the cutting room floor. However, it seemed unfathomable that the True Blood actress would not still appear in the film in some capacity as she's already been heavily involved in the promotional material [including appearing on the recent EMPIRE Magazine cover]. Singer now tells Empire that just because that action sequence was removed from the film, it doesn't mean the Rogue will not appear in some capacity. "It was one real sequence in the movie," rehashed Singer. But he added, "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." Do you think some intentional misdirection is afoot? Or will Rogue truly be relegated to the background?
