A shame but, meh. She never "felt like" Rogue to me.

She felt like a fusion of Rogue and Jubilee actually. I understand why they wanted to use Rogue in the first film but if they just went ahead and made her Jubilee instead I think the relationship would have made more sense. Jubilee and Logan's relationship in the comics is something I always liked.

It is a shame she was cut though, like the poster who said this up thread, I also really didn't care for how she was treated in X3. to me it felt like character assassination, but eh...what are you gonna do?

Yeah, after X3 I'm not really sure they could have done much with Rogue anyway. The "cure" aside they really tarnished the character. Agreed she would have worked much better as Jubilee but I guess Rogue was more popular/known so they used her. Which is a shame because, DAMN, Rogue should've been a vivacious, adult, red-haired hottie with a terrible Southern accent.

Not a dark-haired, teenage girl who's sorta-cute with a terrible Southern accent.

Obviously, as Magneto shows, the "cure" isn't permanent.

There was an alternate ending to X3 where Rogue kept her powers that I liked SO MUCH better.

Rogue isn't a redhead.

Auburn at best.

But it's all a dyejob, so if she wanted to be a red head she could be, but she hasn't.

I don't like this, if only because it implies we're getting a bit less "future" and a bit more "past".

Nothing against 1973, but I'd like to see as much of the post-X3 time period as possible.

Singer has already said that the majority of the movie is set in '73.

I know, that's why I'd like to see the running time of the future scenes not get any smaller.

Disapointed to see Rogue go. I'm a big fan of Anna Paquin's so I was looking forward to seeing her return to one of the first roles I saw her in.

This sucks, it had been all good news up to now. Agree that she already got pretty shafted in X3 after being one of the mains till then (in favor of my favorite new character, but shafted nonetheless), so I hate that she won't even be in this one.

Rogue's a brunette with a white streak in the comics and also one in films.

It sounds like she was just a glorified cameo anyway, so not too big a deal. And now I won't have to get weird about how different Rogue looks now. (Seeing as Anna herself has changed quite a bit since her X-days.)

Rogue will no longer appear in Days of Future Past as her only sequence in the movie has been cut in the editing process. EW has the story here.
Saw this yesterday and was disappointed to hear it.
