Anna Paquin returns to X Men


X Men  Director, Bryan Singer, has today tweeted that Anna Paquin will be appearing in the next movie in this highly successful franchise, X Men Days Of Future Past. It is not clear yet what role Anna’s character Rogue will take on in the new project, (although time travel is mentioned) but she will join Ellen Page and Shaun Ashmore in returning to the comic book, superhero world.  Anna’s Rogue appeared in all 3 of the original movies, and along with her Oscar winning turn in The Piano, was her most famous  role until she pulled on the Merlotte’s uniform to play Sookie Stackhouse.

It’s supposed to be a sleepy Saturday, but it turns out X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer couldn’t resist breaking a little news. Returning to the franchise he kicked off with X-Men and X2: X-Men United, Singer is in pre-production on the hotly anticipated sequel, and confirmed today that three familiar faces from his original trilogy will be making a comeback. Here’s what he tweeted:

He’s thanking Brett Ratner, of course, because he took over the franchise for X-Men 3, and kept all three of those younger X-Men faces in the fold for perhaps this very reason. We’ve already learned that the new X-Men film will involve time travel, with older versions of the characters traveling back in time to warn their younger selves about a potential alternate universe. Ellen Page’s character Kitty Pryde was a major element of that plot when it appeared in the comments, and fans have speculated for a while that she would make a return– though this is the first confirmation we’ve gotten that it would actually happen.

Paquin and Ashmore, who played Rogue and Iceman in all three of the original films, will be fitting into the plot in a slightly more mysterious way. X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently set for release on July 18, 2014, and most of the major players from X-Men: First Class will be turning, including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult. With all that time travel, though, they’ve also made room for the older versions of Magneto and Professor X, played by Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Is this all just going to be way too confusing with all these X-Men running around? Given how successful X-Men: First Class was with a completely baffling plot, I wouldn’t worry too much about that.

  3. Ditto Ladies, I’m glad that Anna as Rogue will be back in this X-men movie!! I think it’ll be great with current day, going back in flashbacks etc. Can’t wait til they finish and release this movie in 2014.

  4. Are they doing it after she finished true blood season 6? Or she will have a small part in x-men? She’s very busy,because she’s doing true blood & she just had two set of twin.

  5. This is going to be interesting.
    And it’s going to have to begin after Season 6 finishes shooting.
    And they’ve only just began filming Season 6 on December 7th .
    So filming the X-man film will have to begin after TrueBlood’s ends and when it’s
    being shown from June to August.
