While Rogue (actress Anna Paquin) does appear in the film. Her scenes were cut down along with other characters due to the studio’s decision to hold the running time of the film down to around two hours.

Fans want to see the three main action sequences that have been hotly discussed. One was the rescue of Rogue from a group of Sentinels by Professor X, Magneto and Iceman. The second scene involves Rogue trying to hold Wolverine’s mind inside of his younger self during his time travel mission after Kitty Pryde is injured. Finally, there is a report that Wolverine and Beast have an extended showdown with the chameleon-like Mystique.

No exact date has been given for the DVD/Blu-ray release, but expect it to arrive in time for the holidays.
