No, not a "rough" cut. A "Rogue" cut.

X-Men: Days of Future Past managed to fit in a surprising number of new and returning mutants, but one it didn’t have time for was Rogue. Although the character, played by Anna Paquin, had a small cameo in the film, she was originally intended for a much larger role – one that was filmed but cut from the theatrical edition. In an interview with Variety, writer/producer Simon Kinberg said that those scenes – and more – will see the light of day in a new extended edition of the film.

“Every movie has scenes that are cut out, but not every movie has scenes cut out with such a beloved character,” Kinberg said during a promotional interview on the Twentieth Century Fox studio lot. “[Rogue’s storyline is] a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie. We want to give [fans] the fullest picture of the film — behind the camera, and in front of it.”

Although the theatrical version of X-Men: Days of Future Past is available now on digital release with a physical edition coming October 14, this extended edition – dubbed the “Rogue Cut” by Kinberg – will come out in 2015 and contain over 10 minutes of extra footage including, but not limited to, the Rogue-centric scenes.
