Anna Paquin cut from Days of Future Past

The time traveling future movie X-Men: Days of Future Past it saddens me to bring this news but Anna Paquin / Rouge has been cut from the movie as a whole. A big rescue scene featuring Rogue, Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) has been cut from the film entirely. There was a quick shot from this sequence in the trailer, featuring Paquin, Ashmore and McKellan.

Bryan Singer explains the reason for this:

“Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

Singer also went on to explain that it was unfortunate editing process and had nothing to do with the actress.
