Fans of Anna Paquin’s “Rogue” will be pleased to learn today that according to Buzzfeed Fox have now confirmed she will be making a (brief) appearance in X Men Days of Future Past after all.
Breathe easy, X-Men fans: You will get to see Anna Paquin in X-Men: Days of Future Past after all.
In December, director Bryan Singer told Entertainment Weekly that the True Blood star “won’t appear” in the superhero sequel after the only action sequence involving her character Rogue had to be cut from the film. Singer explained that in the editing process, he discovered the sequence was “extraneous” to the story. “Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in,” Singer said. “Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”
That sequence may not have survived, but it turns out, Rogue has. After noticing Paquin’s name was conspicuously present in the credits following the newest trailer for the film released late Tuesday, a rep for 20th Century Fox has confirmed to BuzzFeed that Paquin is back in the film. “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo,” the rep said.
With 3 of my favorite actresses – Anna, Ellen Page and Jennifer Lawrence in them – I think I really need to give the X Men movies a go some time!
If you are a fan of the mutants then head over here watch the brand new trailer. (Warning: I do think it looks a bit spoilery!)
