Anna Paquin Appearing in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' After All

Anna Paquin will be making an appearance in the upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, even though it was previously said that her role was cut from the film.

The 31-year-old Oscar-winning actress was set to reprise her role as Rogue, but the only action scene she appeared in was determined to be “extraneous” to the story and cut by director Bryan Singer.

“Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in,” Bryan said. “Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

Fans who watched the final trailer for the movie noticed that her name now appeared in the credits and a rep for 20th Century Fox confirmed to Buzzfeed that she will be in the flick.

“Essentially, [it’s] a cameo,” the rep said.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Anna Paquin return as Rogue in X-Men: Days of Future Past?

yes leave out a pivotal character in XMen like Rogue but leave in & give a huge story to a character like Mystique that isn’t even in the XMen.. just cause Lawrence is in her skin now.. give me a break with this “cameo” bit.. unreal.

Wow, they are really kissing Jennifer Lawrence’s ass right now. Rogue is more important than Mystique in Xman. Enough Said

@LaCroix: Mystiique is an important part in the comics for Days of Future Past. And if you want to talk about kissing ass let’s talk about Wolverine who wasn’t even the person to go back in time in the comics . he’s in every XMen film I mean I like the character and Hugh but enough is enough. They’re not kissing Jennifer’s ass she’s just playing a pivotal character to the story a character she played before THG

@Lilly: Mystique is not an Xmen. The only time she joined them was in “Apocalypse” that is it.. & this isn’t the story of Apocalypse. Wolverine is an Xmen & a very important if not top character in the comics.. If you really think they aren’t hyping Mystique cus Jennifer is playing her ..you really have no idea how movies work.

@LaCroix: Mystique has teamed up with the X-Men on numinous occasions other than Apocalypse. What are you talking about? Magneto isn’t an X-Men either.. And in the comics Mystique is an important part of The Days Of Future past storyline. You can’t have an X-Men movie without their known villains and Mystique is a very known villain and associate of the X-Men. And you just ignored everything i said about wolverine? and accusing me of not knowing how movie work bc I don’t agree with you is stupid imo. And no i’m not calling you stupid. I think you just don’t like Jennifer or you’re tired of her. Which is fine but don’t dismiss what i’m saying like it don’t make sense.
