X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-Rogue

Often the DVD after theater market of the movie business has provided fans and directors the chance to introduce deleted scenes and different cuts of a film that might not have been what the studio in charge had in mind for a theatrical release. It’s kind of a win-win situation. The director finally gets to do his thing, the fan gets extras, and the studio gets something special to help market the DVD release. This time around X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer gets to include 17 minutes of the deleted Rogue (Anna Paquin) scene. Here’s the teaser. (more…)

While I loved watching this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, I felt like I had been, in part, been  robbed. The aggressive marketing campaign would lead viewers to believe that all of the characters  featured in the posters, on the magazine covers, and even the dollar store toys and novelty cups would  have at least some bit of screen time. Most of us knew going into the film that the reality was that with  a film with so many X-folks, the bigger guns—Xavier, Magneto, that clawed fellar—would capture more  screen time than the little fish like Blink and Bishop. However, with the release date of Days on Blu-ray  and DVD just next month, it looks like Rogue and the other X-Men who got the short shrift will get their  due in an extended version of the film next summer.

You might have missed it when, late last night, the last X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer hit the Internet. I have to admit I missed it, but then again, I never stay on a trailer once the credits start to roll. That’s where one eagle eyed fan saw Anna Paquin‘s name. Wait… didn’t director Bryan Singer say she was cut out of the movie? (more…)

It’s not as if the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past doesn’t have enough mutants showing up, but the recent Empire Magazine cover release has brought up a question concerning one character that we thought was answered long ago. Bryan Singer made it clear (or so we thought) that Anna Paquin’s Rogue wasn’t going to be showing up. But now she’s on a magazine cover, so what’s up with that? Find out what Singer had to say below.

My understanding is what we’ve got here is the same footage as what was screened in Hall H for FOX’s panel at SDCC, at least part of it. This very short clip, which appeared on YouTube earlier today only to be promptly pulled by FOX’s lawyers, then later uploaded to a more dubious video hosting site, is the very beginning of the footage screened at Comic Con.

Give the blurry, bald head of Charles Xavier a click in order to view the footage. Do it now! Before it’s taken down again! [Note: only click play, don’t bother installing whatever crap they try and trick you into.]

Xmen days of future past

So far, the majority of the announced cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past have been returning mutants, but what about new mutants. Well hint, hint, Bryan Singer‘s dropped a little knowledge on us this morning in the form of a Vine video. The 6-second clip from the social networking site reveals several directors chairs with the names of various X-Men characters on them. So we get to see names like “Magneto,” “Storm,” “Kitty Pryde,” “Bobby ‘Iceman’ Drake,” and… Wait, what’s that? “Bishop,” and “James ‘Warpath’ Proudstar?!

To the uninitiated, Warpath is the brother of John Proudstar, a mutant who went by the code name Thunderbird and joined the X-Men after the original team was kidnapped by Krakoa, the living island. Thunderbird was killed on another mission a short time later, but his brother James would go on to join the upstart mutant group X-Force. Bishop, meanwhile, is a refugee from the future where mutants were rounded up into concentration camps by Sentinels. After being liberated, Bishop joined a group of mutant cops only to end up going back in time to the 20th century during the pursuit of a mutant fugitive.

So who’s playing Bishop and Warpath? Well, French actor Omar Sy was already rumored to be playing Bishop in the film, and Booboo Stewart, by virtue of being Native American, is probably a safe bet for Warpath.

Days of Future Past is currently in production for a July 18, 2014 release. The film co-stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on July 18, 2014.
