|Subject: THE WOLVERINE Co-Writer Reveals That Rogue Could Have Appeared In The Movie Wed 14 Aug 2013, 12:15 am|| |
While chatting to CreativeScreenwriting.com (via SHH) about his work on the film, The Wolverine co-writer Mark Bomback reveals that another member of The X-Men aside from Jean Grey could well have shared the screen with Logan in James Mangold's movie. He explains that because he was such a fan of Rogue (played by Anna Paquin in X-Men 1-3) and her connection with Wolverine, he toyed with the idea of adding her into the script..even trying to come up with a way for Yashida to come to possess her powers.
"I love Rogue and I just think that thereís something about this idea that Rogue is tremendously empathetic but incapable of safe human contact. That always moved me and I thought thatís what really got to the heart of what makes the X-Men franchise so unique. So I was trying to do something with Rogue in the script. I even had a set of ideas that the old man possessed a version of Rogueís power and that was going to be indicated by a white stripe in his hair. Eventually it became very goofy, and I threw it out because I started realizing throughout the script that it became more problematic than cool."
"Itís no accident to me that in the first X-Men film the first two mutants that you really see who have a connection are Wolverine and Rogue. Thereís something special between them, so I was trying to bring Rogue into it, but it just didnít get there. I regretted there wasnít a way to figure it out, but when I look at the film now, it would have stuck out if we tried to shoehorn her in there just because it was another character from the universe."
Many fans were a little disappointed with the movie version of Rogue in the previous X-flicks -- although Anna Paquin gave good performances, the character was VERY different to her comic counterpart. Maybe with Days Of Future Past we'll finally see the sassy, tough as nails Southern belle we all know and love..and having her fly and punch the heads off Sentinels wouldn't hurt either!

I would have loved that.
I want my flying super strength Rogue in the next X-Men film.
Being with Gambit would be too much to ask for but at least let her fly and be strong people!
Thanks Mia for my Lita signature. <3
