X-Men: Rogue Cut Will Also Give Us More Of Several Mutants

20th Century Fox’s main selling point for X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut has, unsurprisingly, been the inclusion of Anna Paquin’s scenes that were taken out for the theatrical release. However, this extended cut of the 2014 blockbuster won’t just have more Rogue to offer, they will also give us extra helpings of other mutants, including Beast and Mystique, who you can see making out in this deleted scene.

Although X-Men: Days of Future Past’s theatrical cut featured plenty of Raven Darkholme and Hank McCoy, there weren’t many scenes of them together. This clip (found via Comic Book Resources) remedies that by showing the two at the X-Mansion in their first intimate moment since X-Men: First Class. As they talk by the firelight, the two suddenly embrace and start passionately kissing. Seconds later, their human forms are replaced by their natural, blue appearances, Mystique all scaly and Beast covered in fur. Raven then asks Hank if she's remembers when he told her that she would never “be deemed” beautiful looking the way she does, and if he still believed that. Beast tells her that they both know what humans think of them (especially after the events in Paris), but despite this, he thinks she’s beautiful now.

Despite X-Men: Days of Future Past putting Mystique and Beast’s romance on the chopping block, director Bryan Singer and the rest of the creative team won’t do that in X-Men: Apocalypse. The 2016 blockbuster will feature more of their relationshio in the 1980s, over 20 years after they first met. Unfortunately for Hank, he won’t be the only one vying for her affections, as Mystique and Magneto will also be drawn to one another, resulting in an awkward mutant love triangle. 

X-Men: Apocalypse is the final installment of the “First Class” trilogy, and since Jennifer Lawrence won’t reprise her role in future movies (Nicholas Hoult hasn’t decided whether he wants to extend his contract), this story needs to be concluded. Beast and Mystique were enemies in X-Men: The Last Stand, but since the timeline has been rewritten, it’s a mystery whether these two will remain together or permanently go their separate ways.

X-Men: Days of Future Past-The Rogue Cut will be available for purchase on July 14, though attendees at San Diego Comic-Com next week will have the opportunity to see the extended film at the Reading Cinema in the Gaslamp District on July 11 at 8 p.m.
