Anna Paquin set to appear in X-Men: Days Of Future Past

In the beginning, Anna Paquin's Rogue was set to appear in the new X-Men outing, X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Then director Bryan Singer said her future-set scene had been cut, leaving many fans reeling. Now, after admitting she was disappointed not to make it into the film... she's back in.

Buzzfeed spotted that her name appears in the credits at the end of the latest X-Men: Days Of Future Past trailer, and after contacting 20th Century Fox to check whether she might be a mutant once more, news has arrived that she will be, albeit briefly. "Essentially, [it's] a cameo," were the words the representative used.

Whilst this sounds remarkably like a 'blink and you'll miss it' moment, it should at least please her legion of admirers (whilst possibly grating others who didn't like her interpretation of the much-loved comic book character).

To bring you up to speed, Days Of Future Past finds Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and the current X-Men team confronting a dark alternate future where mutants are an endangered species, tracked down, imprisoned or killed thanks to Bolivar Trask's (Peter Dinklage) Sentinel program and an overwhelming level of distrust from regular humans.

They boldly plan to send Wolverine's consciousness back in time to the X-Men: First Class (2011) era (or at least a few years after we last met those versions of the characters) to convince the younger Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the rest to work together to stop the threat at its source.

With Ellen Page (Juno), Daniel Cudmore (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn), Halle Berry (Cloud Atlas), Shawn Ashmore (The Ruins) and others back, including most of the First Class cast, X-Men: Days Of Future Past is out on 22 May.
