Even in its theatrical version X-Men: Days of Future Past manages to squeeze a remarkable amount into its two hour run-time. Nonetheless a lot had to be jettisoned for the sake of pacing. The most notable casualty of this was Anna Paquin’s Rogue, who only showed up at the very end of the film for a single shot.
