When the cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past was getting announced and more and more original castmembers were confirmed to be returning, some fans wondered how director Bryan Singer was going to fit so many characters into one film. As many surmised, the primary focus of Days of Future Past is on the First Class characters in the 1970s, with a frame story set up in the Sentinel-overrun future. As Singer and editor John Ottman were working to refine the movie, it was inevitable that some material was going to be cut, and screenwriter Simon Kinberg previously confirmed that a sequence involving the future-set rescue of Anna Paquin’s Rogue was cut.
Now that the film has hit theaters and we’ve had a chance to see what made the finished film, we can see that this deleted Rogue sequence was actually teased in the very first trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. The full scene will likely be on the Blu-ray, but for now we’ve screengrabbed the image and included the video after the jump, along with Kinberg’s description of the scene in question and why it was cut.
