Although X-Men: Days of Future Past managed to incorporate almost every movie X-Man past, there was very little of Anna Paquin's Rogue in it. And yet apparently director Bryan Singer shot a great deal of Rogue footage — footage that will be included in a new edition of the movie which Fox will release on Blu-ray later this year.

Generally called the "Rogue cut," this new version of the movie will contain 10 additional minutes of the power-absorbing, Southern-accented mutant, taken out of the original film to trim its running time. Screenwriter Simon Kinberg says the Blu-ray will arrive mid-2015, while Fox Home Entertainment's executive vice president of marketing-communications James Finn promised that the Blu-ray would be a "distinct film" with "distinct extras," meaning it won't just be a rehash of the original Days of Future Past Blu-ray. "[It'll be] complimentary to DOFP Blu-ray but not repetitive," said Finn on Twitter. And according to /Film:

The centerpiece of the Rogue storyline seems to be a prison break sequence involving Professor X, Magneto, and Iceman.

Personally, I'm only marginally interested in seeing what happened to Rogue after the nonsense of X-Men 3, but I'm super-supportive of Fox releasing a new edition of DoFP that isn't just a double-dip and naked money-grab.

DISCUSSION

I'm not opposed to Anna Paquin or using her as Rogue, but someone needs to be held up against the wall and mercilessly beaten for how the character was used in all the movies. Here you have what is perhaps the most interesting female X-men character (with the possible exception of Jean Gray) and you give her all but nothing to do? The character could carry her own move.

Weren't there rumors of a Rogue/Gambit movie in the works? Or am I behind a bit?
