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:

“It’s kind of a hard question,” said Kinberg, when asked by Crave Online on the subject. “We shot with Anna [Paquin] a big subplot in the movie and we watched it in the movie and then we cut it out of the movie because, she’s great in it and it was well shot, but it just didn’t fit the film.”

“It was a subplot that I created sort of as an appendage to the movie because I wanted to do something else that didn’t serve the main plot of the film.”

“I just wanted to see Ian [McKellen] and Patrick [Stewart] on a mission together,” he continues. “So I took them away from the main plot of the movie so that they could go off and do something, and she was the MacGuffin of that mission.”

“I can’t speak to any other rumours about any other way she could appear in the film, but I can tell you that the main plot that we shot with her, we pulled out of the movie.”
