Here is the Scene Rogue was supposed to have in the New X-Men Movie!


The screen writer explained her deleted scene this way:

"The Rogue/Anna Paquin scene was by far the biggest cut we made, and that was more my fault than anything. When I was crafting the script, I wanted to create a subplot for old Charles and old Eric — Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellen] — to have a mini-mission together, one final adventure. And that’s what the Rogue sequence was — that they went to retrieve Rogue."

He went on to say, "It felt like it didn’t come from the spine of the film, it was an appendage where I just wanted to see the old guys get in the X-Jet for one last ride. It was a narrative detour, and in a film with this much momentum and narrative flow, you can’t afford any detours."

So there you have it.  Sounds like it was not really even her scene to lose.  Darn!  My daughters need more strong female characters!
