Anna Paquin Says “No” to Rogue in Upcoming Gambit Film


Rogue has been a serious point of contention among X-Men fans since her character betraying appearance in 2006’s Last Stand. 

While many were excited to see her character potentially retconned with 2014’s Days of Future Past, she was ultimately cut from the theatrical release which left the bad taste in people’s mouth continue to linger.

With the announcement of Channing Tatum’s Gambit film, many have been wondering if we’d see the return of Paquin to the character, but in a recent Twitter Q&A she let everybody know that she would not return to the franchise with a big fat “No”.

Well, there it is. Maybe someday they’ll get Rogue right and Paquin could potentially be involved, but for now it looks as though she’ll remain absent from the X-Men universe unless of course they recast her which we think would be a little sad. We enjoyed Paquin’s run, but like so many others, she got the shaft in Last Stand.

What do you all think? Should Paquin return to reprise her role? Do you want to see a new actress take on the character? Or should Rogue just be left out of the equation? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
