The X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut now has an official release date. After the May 5 teaser from Bryan Singer, which required viewers to download an app to see, more details have finally been revealed. He followed that up with the tweet below.
After the Inquisitr previously reported a full-length version of Singer’s latest release would feature more of Anna Paquin‘s Rogue, the details have been mostly speculation. What we did know after the initial announcement last September is that nearly 20 minutes of footage were left on the cutting room floor for the theatrical release.
Now, Fox is ready to release the film, with all of its initially cut footage, which features an entire sub-plot for Rogue (hence “Rogue Cut”), on Digital HD, Blu Ray, and DVD on July 14. According to A.V. Club, this also marks the 15th anniversary of Fox’s original X-Men release to theaters, arguably to the point where super hero movies started getting good.

Also, allegedly included in the X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut are special features that weren’t released in the original version.
Probably the biggest reason Rogue was such an important character to mention for this re-release of 2014’s comeback for the franchise is that Anna Paquin’s character played a central role in the first two films alongside series regular Hugh Jackman. For some, her absence left Bryan Singer’s comeback with a proverbial bad taste in their mouth.
According to an image released with Singer’s tweet, there was apparently a point where Rogue took Kitty Pryde’s (Ellen Page) powers of mental time travel – which were invented just for the movie – and took a turn with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).
The X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut will also feature additional appearances from Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult), as well as some new visual effects.
