Bryan Singer Talks about Removing Rogue and the Mystery of Wolverine’s Claws in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     January 30, 2014


With a series of twenty-five covers, Empire Magazine had a huge X-Men: Days of Future Past blow-out for their latest issue, and it provided plenty of interesting tidbits about the upcoming film.  A couple months ago, we reported that Rogue (Anna Paquin) wouldn’t be making the movie’s final cut.  At the time, director Bryan Singer said, “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.”  Rogue is still featured on one of the twenty-five covers, and Singer tells Empire that “It does not mean that we won’t see her in the film,” and he hopes “to make the sequence available on the DVD as she was quite wonderful in it. She is an important part of the X-Men family.”

Hit the jump for Singer trying to explain a detail that’s been bothering some X-Men fans.  For more X-Men news, click here for new details on X-Men: Apocalypse and click here for new details on a Gambit movie.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.

[Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen The Wolverine]

You may recall that at the end of The Wolverine, Logan’s adamantium claws were cut off, and the bone claws grew back through the stubs in the adamantium coating.  However, as you can see in the trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past and on the Empire cover, he has his adamantium claws again.  So how did future Wolverine get his metal claws back?  Singer is somewhat vague on the matter, telling Empire that perhaps Magneto could “reconstitute the adamantium claws… [Wolverine] has a different relationship with Magneto, and perhaps Magneto could forge them.”  I’m not sure if we’ll see that in the movie or if Singer is just cutting off nit-pickers at the pass.  Nevertherless, it’s still a nice touch to have Magneto put adamantium into Wolverine’s body when it was the supervillain who ripped out the indestructible metal in the comics.
