The entertainment magazine Empire is known for releasing some amazing covers of some of the biggest stars portraying characters from big movies. We can never forget Chris Hemsworth featured as Thor with his mighty Hammer or Tom Hiddleston's Loki, showcased in all his mischievous glory.
Empire has now released not one or two but 25 different covers for Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past". The one cover that is confusing people a bit is Anna Paquin's Rogue. Singer revealed about a month ago that she was actually cut from the film, through the following comment:
"Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. It's a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in."
We thought that was the end of the character but now this cover heightens suspicion again. Perhaps this cover could indicate a change of heart and direction for Singer and team and that she is actually back in it. Singer did state that she would still probably appear in the DVD and in promotional materials however and this cover was probably shot months ago, so that would fall in line with that.
When asked about it, Empire released the following statement:
"For those asking if our Rogue cover means Rogue is in the movie, a definitive statement from Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg is in the issue.

Naturally they would steer people to reading gthe magazine, so once again a bit of a cryptic statement. Only time will tell if Rogue is in fact in it but I assume Singer wasn't trying to lead us on a chase of misdirection and that he filled us in on the real deal.
