Anna Paquin will be up for replaying Rogue in X-Men:First Class, which will include Iceman, Rogue, Angel, Colossus, Jubilee and Shadowcat.
Worst Previews quotes Paquin:
“Absolutely. Yeah,” she revealed. “I would hope I could do a little bit more action next time, though. I kind of find it ironic that I did three big action films and did, actually, no action whatsoever. I mean I got some really amazing emotional story moments, but I didn’t really get to do the physical stuff.”
Considering there was a comic book by the same subtitle which was a prequel book, it was widely speculated that First Class would revolve around the first recruits to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. Tie that in with the Xavier cameo in Origins Wolverine, you see him collecting the captured mutants which we speculate found new homes at the school, and some speculation wondered if that was our first look at the roster of the “First Class”
But now that we have confirmation that Rogue will be a part of First Class and the roster suggests this will be X-Men 4, continuing on the timeline after the events of X3 with the younger tag alongs coming into their own with their teacher Peter Rasputin – Colossus. Basically its a New Mutants story without any of the New Mutants in it.
I kind of like the progression, but surprised they didnt throw in some new names. I guess that is where the antagonists will come in.
Who could face off against the First Class? Junior Brotherhood?
Will they play off the Kitty and Collossus romance?
