'X-Men': Major Change in this Summer's 'Days of Future Past'

EW

There will be one less mutant in this summer’s highly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past, which combines the casts of the original X-Men trilogy with those of 2011′s First Class. Director Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects) has revealed to EW exclusively that a rescue sequence — shot early in the film’s production and featuring Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Rogue (Anna Paquin), and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) — has been cut from the final film. Sadly, this means that Rogue’s screen time has been significantly chopped down as well.

I've never liked her as rogue anyway

aDDicteD2539d ago

i think it was a good idea because there is nothing left for her to do anyway, she literally signed up for the cure project in the last stand so why bother, i was also surprised that the mentioned rescue sequence was just her screen time then it was not worth it to have her for just a couple of minutes. i like anna pacquin but i did not like how she was portrayed as rogue she more resembled jubilee as a minor member of the x men.

well lets not forget the cure was only temporary

aDDicteD2539d ago

i probably forgot any parts in the film explaining to the cure being somewhat temporary. i think the government's purpose is to eradicate the mutant powers permanently. maybe the experiment they had made was still lacking something that is why in the end magneto gradually got some of his abilities back.however, i believe it might also depend on the mutant type because it was also explained some mutants have higher ranks than the others making magneto being probably level 4 or something just behind phoenix who had the highest level. magneto even left mystique in the middle part of the film assuming she is permanently cured.

thinking about it you are correct the initial involvement of ana paquin in the film makes it look like she only lost her powers temporarily that is the only explanation why there was a scene involving her rescue. too bad it was cut, i hope a more significant scene replaces it.

We saw the chess piece move at the end of the film, so yeah not powerless.

RetrospectRealm2538d ago

Yeah the chess piece moved at the end. So nobody knew it was temporary until mutants actually take the cure and figure out that it is indeed temporary.
