The original version of the movie had a full sequence involving Rogue cut out that was a huge action scene. In the movie that was released in theaters, Rogue’s part was reduced to nothing more and a small cameo. Someone asked the filmmakers on twitter if we’d see these scenes in a Director’s Cut, and Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed it will be out later in the year:
Normally these sort of “double dips” are saved until a sequel is being released in order to promote that. But releasing a Director’s Cut just a couple months after the normal one? That’s just a slimy cash-grab.
