X-Men: Days of Future Past - Deleted Scene Info

What is the Removed Scene with Rogue About?

We already reported about the removal of a complete scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past last December (see news), almost erasing the Rogue character from the movie. Now, some more info on the issue got out. Screenwriter Simon Kinberg told Collider that the removed scene was kind of a road trip for Magneto and Professor X:

That was the sub-plot that has now been well-publicized, but that I created, not actually to bring Rogue into the movie, though that was a wonderful consequence, but more that I wanted to have, and this was in the early script phase, I wanted a mission for old Charles and old Erik, for Magneto and Xavier to go off on a mission together.

And while everybody was happy with the sub-plot, it was too much of a detour from the main story that already deals with two time periods, two kinds of sentinels and 10-12 characters.

I mean, truly, seriously, it was like, “What would it be like to have Patrick and Ian on a road trip together?” And that was kind of, you know, it got condensed as I wrote it and then when we shot it, but it was just a sub-plot. It was a perfectly good sub-plot and people will see it one day, and Anna was great in it and it was well-directed; it just didn’t serve the overall story.

While the possibility of an Extended Cut later on Blu-ray ist currently not discussed, the least we can expect is that the scene will find its way into the bonus section of the home video releases.
