Simon Kinberg Explains Decision to Cut Rogue’s Part from Days of Future Past

It was previously reported and confirmed that Rogue, played by Anna Paquin, was originally part of a subplot in Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past but was cut off after the subplot was deemed unnecessary (and would have extended the runtime to more than 2 and a half hours.) The film’s screenwriter and producer, Simon Kinberg, has also chimed in and explained in greater detail why the scenes had to be cut from the finished script:

Gambit and Nightcrawler Could Show Up in X-Men: Apocalypse

In a recent interview with Cine Premiere, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer revealed plans for the third installment in the franchise, even though X-Men: Days of Future Past is still awaiting its cinematic release.

According to Singer, he was thinking of bringing back two fan favorites who have already made appearances in the previous iterations of the X-Men franchise: Nightcrawler, who last appeared in X3, and Gambit, who sort of appeared in X-Men: Origins.

Quicksilver to Appear in X-Men Sequel, According to Bryan Singer

Quicksilver to Appear in X-Men Sequel, According to Bryan Singer

X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer recently announced on his Twitter account that American Horror Story star Even Peters will be playing Quicksilver in his upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. The news is generating a lot of buzz among fans lately, mainly because Joss Whedon has already revealed that the next Avengers movie will include mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

The news is interesting because X-Men: Days of Future Past is a Fox movie, while Avengers is a Disney/Marvel one (the three big studios that have movie rights to major Marvel properties right now are Fox, Sony, and Disney/Marvel). Fans are currently wondering on how Fox and Marvel can reconcile the two different versions of Quicksilver.

Bryan Singer’s VFX-heavy take on the fairy tale classic Jack the Giant Slayer failed to garner decent box office numbers in the US, with a mere $26 million take over the weekend. The pic was reportedly made on a $200 million budget, but its poor performance may be due to an overall weak period for movies, as it is currently the number one pic in the theatres, and the overall take for the movies during the period was only $100 million, which is 37% less than 2012’s numbers.

Superman Classic is fan animation meets comic book perfection

Superman Classic is fan animation meets comic book perfection

Superman has had a lot of exposure. Nearly 75 years of comic books, serials, cereals (both!), cartoons, toys, half a dozen films, etc. Every example has a different perspective on the character, from look to personality. Some are hit and some are miss, and those associated, from Smallville’s Tom Welling to Bryan Singer’s recent Superman Returns. But it’s the fans who make those reactions and turn projects into legends – so maybe its the fans who know the character best of all. That’s likely the motivation for Robb Pratt, a Superman fan who used his amazing traditional and digital art and animation talents to create a minute-long toon called Superman Classic. More than just a Max Fleischer reminiscent webisode, this clip features some style and techniques that put many studios to shame. Check it out!
