While the likes of Fame Janssen and January Jones remain unsure of their return, Singer announced today that three more X-Men trilogy mutants will be back for Days of Future Past. It's a safe bet that Anna Pa quin's character will finally have some mutant powers (outside temporarily absorbing them) this time around as she was vocal about not ever evolving to participate in the action while doing press for X-Men: The Last Stand.
As for Kitty Pride, she was a must-include for fans of Marvel Comics since the Days of Future Past storyline revolves around her character. In the books, an aged Kitty Pride is able to transfer her consciousness back to her younger self (in the present) in order to prevent the assassination of Senator Robert Kelly which began a war where the giant anti-mutant Sentinel robots scour the land, hunting down the X-Men and all other mutants.
Singer aims to make sense of the continuity of the films while also broadening out the X-Men universe to compete with Marvel Studios' The Avengers, and it'll be interesting to see what comes of his ambitious ideas.

Rogue, whose real name is Marie D'An canto, was an innocent young girl from a peaceful neighborhood in Meridian, Mississippi who had plans to go on an adventure with her boyfriend David before college.
She tells him about her plans to travel away to new places after high school, and then there's a pause, and they slowly move closer until they kiss. By that moment her powers began to manifest, when David, suddenly, falls unconscious, quivering, and Marie's loud shriek makes her parents rush to her room.
Marie is hysterical and wails at her mother, imploring the former to not touch the latter, and her father rushes his wife to call an ambulance. Rogue walks inside a building where a crowd is cheering at a caged wrestling match, which she witnesses.
In the background, a news report is telling about the upcoming gathering of world leaders in New York, and that they will be talking about many topics, including the mutant phenomenon. The wrestler from earlier approaches Wolverine and demands his money, saying that no man can take a beating like that without a mark, which means he must be a mutant.
Wolverine will not budge, and the wrestler pretends to give up, but then pulls a knife and goes to attack. Marie screams to Wolverine to look out, and he jumps out of his chair and unsheathes his razor-sharp metal claws at him.
After he discovers Marie, Wolverine kicks her out by ordering her out to the cold and begins to re-enter the truck. He tells her that he doesn't need driving tips, but just then they slam into a tree branch and Logan is thrown through the front shield a few dozens of meters away into the snow.
Cyclops puts his hand to his visor and shoots a powerful optic blast at Sabre tooth. He then uses his beams to release Rogue, and they grab her and Wolverine and run away seconds before the truck explodes.
As a boy with psychokinetic abilities, named Pro, who is sitting in front of Rogue, puts his hand behind his back and creates a small fireball; another boy, Bobby Drake, sitting next to Rogue uses his power to freeze the fireball, and it falls on the floor and breaks, resulting in Pro getting in trouble with Storm and Rogue being impressed. He creates a small ice crystal shaped like a rose flower for her and welcomes her to mutant high.
Later that night, when Rogue had trouble sleeping, she heard Wolverine having a nightmare and went to check on him by trying to wake him up without touching him. Unfortunately, when he woke up, Wolverine accidentally impaled Rogue his adamantine claws and started yelling for help, Bobby, Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops, and several other children arrive to witness Rogue absorbing Wolverine's powers.
The whole incident attracts a worried crowd of students and once again Rogue feels guilty for being herself before fleeing from the room. She asks him what does he mean, and he answers that the students are freaked out, while Professor Xavier is furious.
As she walks away, Bobby smiles, and his eyes glow yellow for a moment, showing that it was actually Mystique, who successfully tricks Rogue into thinking she is not wanted at the school due to the incident the previous night. She tells him that the first boy she ever kissed ended up in a coma for three weeks, and she can still feel him inside her head, and Logan, too.
Logan hugs her through her shirt and convinces a despondent Rogue to stay with Xavier, by telling her that he thinks Xavier is one of the few people who can understand what she is going through and that he really wants to help her, thus promising to take care of her. The train starts moving, and Logan convinces her to give “these geeks” another shot.
Everybody screams as Wolverine looks is horror as Magneto uses his powers to literally slice the train up open and float in. Logan pops his claws, and Magneto says that he must be Wolverine, the man with metal running through all his body.
He uses his powers to lift Logan in the air and hurt him, as Rogue screams at him to stop. Magneto incapacitates Wolverine by tossing him away and then knocks Rogue unconscious with a tranquilizer dart and captures her.
Despite her protests, Magneto touches Rogue's cheek, making him absorb her power. After the X-Men defeat Sabre tooth, with combined efforts, Jean Grey and Storm manage to direct Logan to the top of the machine.
As Rogue's energy is being stressed under the machine which would kill her eventually, some hair on her forehead turns white. The X-Men ultimately save her before the machine can stretch her power any further as Cyclops sees a chance and decides to take, managing to blast Magneto.
Free to move, Wolverine slashes the machine, stopping the field before it mutates anyone. He touches her cheek, attempting to give her his regenerative powers, trying to get her to heal in order to save her life.
Rogue suddenly wakes up and Logan falls to the ground, unconscious, with gashes all over his face and chest. During a museum tour, in the food court, Iceman, Rogue, and Pro engage in an altercation with two other young men.
One of the young men takes John's Hippo lighter that he uses to generate fire to light a cigarette. All of a sudden, the entire museum comes to a standstill as everyone inside freezes as if time has stopped, leaving only the mutants unaffected.
After the teachers and students of the Xavier Institute hear the news of a mutant attack on the President at the White House, Cyclops decides that it is time to leave, which Professor X complies to, before unfreezing everyone. Later that night William Stryker's team infiltrates the mansion, with Siryn's sonic scream immobilizing the intruders and alerting the rest of the sleeping students.
Wolverine kills many of Stryker's men, while Colossus, Rogue, Iceman, Pro, and most of the students escape through hidden tunnels. After fleeing from the school due to the attack and getting separated from the rest of the students, Rogue alongside Iceman, Pro and Wolverine escaped in Cyclops' Car and travel to Boston, where they seek refuge in Bobby's family home to rest and regain their bearings.
While in the car, Rogue returns Wolverine's Dog Tag, which were given to her before he left for Alkali Lake. Bobby gives Rogue some of his mother's old clothes and a pair of white gloves belonging to his grandmother.
During this time, Bobby is overcome by the sight of Rogue with minimal clothes on and afterward, kisses her, which at first seems successful and carries on for longer than either of them expected it to, but soon he is forced to pull away when her powers inevitably start harming him. After demonstrating his powers, Bobby's disgruntled brother, Ronny Drake, becomes angry, afraid, and jealous of his brother's gifts and calls the police on Bobby and the rest of the mutants, claiming his family is being held hostage by mutants.
Negotiations with the police prove futile and one officer orders Logan to drop his blades; when he retracts them, he is shot in the head, the bullet stopped by his adamantine skull. While Wolverine was unconscious, John nearly torched Bobby's house to the point where Rogue was forced to use her powers to stop him.
As Wolverine recovers, the X-Jet (possessed by Storm and Jean Grey) touches down on the front lawn, saving the group the trouble of getting themselves out of their predicament. The plane is about to crash when Magneto repairs the hole in their ship and stops them just above the ground.
The X-Men reluctantly team up with Magneto and Mystique and travel to Weapon-X facility and rescuing Xavier, Scott, and the other children. After being subjected to some serious pain caused by Xavier's mental powers and realizing the dam was about to break and kill them all, Iceman and Rogue decide that they should probably get the X-Jet closer and help everyone make a safe escape.
Rogue is present at the White House alongside the rest of the X-Men to confront the President about recent happenings. She places documents retrieved from Stryker's office under Professor Xavier's command.
Bobby turns to it and freezes it, successfully dousing the flames and making it miss them by nothing more than a few inches. With a satisfied smile on his face, he turns to Kitty, not realizing that another missile is about to hit them.
Rogue shows up just in time to see them breaking the hug, and her boyfriend looking quite pleased. His relationship with Rogue appears to be deteriorating, strained by their inability to have physical contact and by his close friendship with Kitty Pride.
After the Danger Room session, down in the hall, Bobby asks Rogue if she's okay, and she angrily says she's fine, though she's clearly not. He tells her it seems like she's avoiding him, and she admits what's wrong is that she can't touch her boyfriend without killing him.
Rogue looks at him, as Promo continues her eulogy: “Charles was more than a leader, more than a teacher, he was a friend. When tears fill Kitty's eyes as she listens to Storm's speech, Bobby, sitting next to her, puts his hand on hers to comfort her.
Later, after the X-Men defeat the Brotherhood on Alcatraz Island, everything was said and done and all the kids were back at the school (except for John), with Rogue waiting in a room. Inside the mansion, Bobby walks to find his girlfriend, Marie, sitting in his room.
She is eventually rescued by Magneto and Iceman who find her in the Cerebra chamber, kept there because it was the only place that Professor Xavier's powers could not penetrate. She escaped with Magneto screaming Bobby's name as he sacrificed himself to get her to safety and was incinerated by a Sentinel.
She was beginning to feel the strain of using Kitty's powers and watches as a Sentinel fires a blast at herself, Xavier, Magneto and Kitty as history takes hold, and they are all erased from existence after Logan completed his mission. In the revised timeline, as Logan wakes up after traveling back from the past and stopping the Sentinel program, Rogue is last seen at the X-Mansion, walking out of her room to meet Bobby.
Westchester Incident In 2028, Charles Xavier developed Alzheimer's and suffer a massive seizure that injured 600 people, and killed 7 mutants, including several members of the X-Men. Rogue formed a relationship with Wolverine as a paternal-figure and friend who helped her during joining Xavier's school.
Rogue has trained with the X-Men such as being in the Danger Room and has helped them by flying the X-Jet over to them after Magneto and Mystique left without the X-Men. The people she absorbs life-force from will either lose consciousness or end up in a coma, depending on how much she drained from them.
A side effect of this ability is that Rogue retains a mental imprint of the person she absorbed. This was evident when she didn't absorb Wolverine's ability to generate claws because his skeletal system was infused with adamantine.
For example, in X2: X-Men United she gained full control over Pyro's ability to manipulate fire. After the first film, Rogue's name is Anna Marie from her ongoing comic book series.
The scene where Rogue gets sucked out by a jet was actually performed by actress Anna Pa quin and not by a stunt double. Bryan Singer confirmed on December 21, 2013, that Anna Pa quin's major action sequence as Rogue will not be included in the theatrical cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Originally it was reported that Rogue will not be returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past, as Anna Pa quin's only scene was cut from the film. At the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Rogue is seen holding hands with Iceman.
She is wearing black gloves, possibly indicating that she did not take the cure in this new timeline. In the comics, Rogue is a mutant with the ability to absorb life energy from other life-forms whenever she makes skin-to-skin contact with them.
If she makes contact other mutants or super-powered humans she will also take on their powers, memories, personalities and occasionally even aspects of their physical form. Though she occasionally takes on other mutants and super-powered humans physical aspects, she doesn't do so throughout the film series, as she does in her comic book counterpart.
However, in the film she gained a white streak in her hair after absorbing Magneto's power for a prolonged period of time. In the novelization and an alternate/deleted scene that appears on the DVD release of the film, X-Men: The Last Stand, Rogue did not take the cure, and is shown having her powers intact, telling Iceman that she could not bring herself to do it.
Drew Barrymore, Sarah Michelle Cellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Katie Holmes, Christina Rich, Alicia Silverstone, and Katharine Isabelle were considered for the role of Rogue before Anna Pa quin was cast. Rogue was involved in one version of The Wolverine script, she was going to try to convince Logan to return home, and she was going to end up joining him in the adventure, however, she was cut from the story due to the director wanting to focus on Logan's isolation.
