Rogue Cut from X-Men: Days of Future Past

Apparently there was one mutant too many running around in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men film and Anna Paquin dyed that skunk stripe in her hair for nothing.

During the editing process, Bryan Singer has cut Rogue (Anna Paquin) out of X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Singer is juggling several mutants throughout the film and much like several characters added in X2, she only had one scene.

Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous.  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.

Singer has already spoken with Paquin about the cut and the actress was very understanding, though I'm sure she wishes instead her part would have been cut out of X-Men: The Last Stand. Keep in mind however, that Singer will be doing additional reshoots, so they could try to find a way to work her in during those.
