While chatting to CreativeScreenwriting.com (via SHH) about his work on the film, The Wolverine co-writer Mark Bomback reveals that another member of The X-Men aside from Jean Grey could well have shared the screen with Logan in James Mangold's movie.

 

"I love Rogue and I just think that there?s something about this idea that Rogue is tremendously empathetic but incapable of safe human contact. That always moved me and I thought that?s what really got to the heart of what makes the X-Men franchise so unique. So I was trying to do something with Rogue in the script. I even had a set of ideas that the old man possessed a version of Rogue?s power and that was going to be indicated by a white stripe in his hair. Eventually it became very goofy, and I threw it out because I started realizing throughout the script that it became more problematic than cool." 

 

"It?s no accident to me that in the first X-Men film the first two mutants that you really see who have a connection are Wolverine and Rogue. There?s something special between them, so I was trying to bring Rogue into it, but it just didn?t get there. I regretted there wasn't a way to figure it out, but when I look at the film now, it would have stuck out if we tried to shoehorn her in there just because it was another character from the universe."

Isn't she now normal? (Had her powers suppressed/removed)?

 

Having said that, I found the movie enjoyable, but a little over the top with the adamantium exoskeleton/cyborg/robot/whatever

(and would have preferred if Logan kept his blades)

I think they did a new actress to take over Rogue. Anna Paquine doesn't do her justice. Rogue was ranked as one of the sexist women in comics at one time.
